Life is pretty crazy right now and my discouragement hit the ceiling last night. I felt the need for a getaway today and drove out to Great Falls, VA.
I love that I can be completely honest with God because He knows all the thoughts in my head anyway. I really just needed my moment of recognizing how I was feeling and being honest about it.
God revealed to me areas of my life that are - hmmm, how to put it - in need of improvement :-) I found myself saying, "But God I..."and my excuses always come up short.
I realized that there were many areas where I was not turning to God and completely trusting Him. I felt Him ask me, "Melany, when have I ever not provided for you?" I tried to come up with a good example and had some things come to mind, but every time I came up with something, I was reminded of His hand in the situation. It always worked out in the end - EVERY - SINGLE - TIME.
God has never ever left me hanging. He has always provided for me. Even as I reflected on my current circumstances, I was able to see that He is here with me working things out.
When I look past God's Presence in the present, is when things start getting stressful. I just need to continue to rest in His peace because, as He reminded me today - He has always come through for me ... and He is not going to stop coming through now.
So, I learned today that there is no use trying to argue with God - He is always right and He is always good.
