Feeling A Little Discouraged
We make our plans but the Lord directs our steps. No matter how hard we wish for, hope for, pray for, and desire certain things to happen if it is not in the Lord's will it will not happen. The Lord is teaching me to place my confidence in Him alone and not in my circumstances. He is to be my contentment and nothing else. But the reality is that every time I get my hopes up about certain desires being fulfilled they seem to just get deflated and the more discouraged I become. I truly desire the Lord's will and not my own, so I will just rest in Him knowing that He always does what is best. Right now I just feel like a child who desires candy and cannot have it because it is not what is best for me.
