Well this isn't the post I'd hoped to be writing, but we didn't pass court! Instead we are rescheduled for March 8th , exactly 2 weeks from now.
I know God is showing me that I must mean what I say when I say "I trust Him" and I do...it isn't always easy, but I do trust Him and I know He can turn what seems like detours in my "perfect plan" into GLORIOUS OUTCOMES for HIS PERFECT PLAN. He has shown me this time and time again and so I rest in His grace. He has carried us this far and will continue to.
I am reminded of the story mentioned on Sunday of Shadrack, Meshack, and Abindago (didn't look up spelling!)....when asked if they would serve the idol before them, they said "No, God will save us, and EVEN IF HE DOESN'T save us, we still won't serve your idol!"
So I am challenged and growing and learning to say YES to God...EVEN if things don't go the way I want them to, I will praise Him and thank Him for acting out of Love and "working all things together for the good of those who love Him."
I am reminded of how Tyler acts lately when getting his diaper changed...he wants to run and throw a fit when he knows he needs to be changed and cleaned, how will I respond when God wants to change and clean me? The diaper changing process is sooo much smoother when he submits and lets me clean him up instead of fighting me....I hope I no longer run from God but submit and allow Him to change and clean me!
(Maybe that's not the most glorious example but hey, that's my life right now!) :)
