Sometimes life just doesn't work out the way we want it to.
It's easy to become negative and cynical because we are humans and after awhile you just can't prevent those feelings of despair that creep in.
It is a battle to stay positive. Believe me, it's one that I fight everyday.
There are so many challenges, so many little disappointments and moments of darkness that threaten to turn our world upside down.
My life isn't exactly how I pictured it. My 31st birthday is approaching and I am still single with not a prospect on the horizon. I need to pay off some debts and figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life. This isn't the picture I had in mind. I'm far from being who I want to be.
Everyday I see amazing things happening in the lives of my friends and while I am happy for them I can't help but wonder when my time will come.
It can be quite discouraging but I remind myself that God has a plan for me. He has already determined my future and because he loves me, he only wants the best. The things he has in store for me are way better than what I could have imagined.
I have to trust and wait on him to open the doors when the time is right.
My hope is that you will be encouraged to rely upon him. Keep believing that what you need and desire will become a reality according to His will.
