The past few weeks have been very similar to a circus in our lives, or at least the circus music has been cue'd up and playing CONSTANTLY in the background. Sound familar?
Note To Self: I am not a fan of the circus.
Things have been up and down and all over the place, TRYING to be patient with this, patient with that, jumping through hoops, falling down, getting up, tripping over things, traveling and coming home, traveling again and then coming home and a whole bunch of this,that and the other.
We all have crap going on and really, all of my junk and details are not important to share (although I bet you are wondering what the heck I am talking about, huh??) What is important are the reminders and I am here to remind you (well, and really me) that NO MATTER WHAT...everthing works out the way it is supposed to work out. The problem is, when things don't work out the way we think or thought they would or should, we temporaily fall apart. (well, at least I do. You can admit that in the privacy of your own home) We forget what we tell ourselves when everything is in the air, in process...until things dont go the way we had planned, "That everything will go the way it is supposed to"
Note To Self: It is not about our plan..dang it! Another thing we forget to remember.
When you find yourself in that moment where things not coming together the way you thought they should, when you feel like prayers are not anwered the way you think they should or if and when you find yourself woozy from the motion sickness of going in circles, falling down, jumping through hoops and all the other junk that comes when your plans fall apart, there is good news to remember:
There is something way bigger, better and brighter than you could have ever imagined. Its the truth and it is a promise. You have gotta hold onto that truth as hard as it may seem at the moment. Cry about it for a little bit and then get up, brush off, use the middle finger emojii to flip off the devil and then keep going.
p.s. All of the above it exactly how I document my faith. I write it all down so that when the better happens, you know, HIS plan, I can look back and connect all the dots.
yay, thank you and amen!
