Some things just don’t make sense…
Today I had a sweet friend call for advice
She’s been treated unfairly
and wants to be in a different position
She asked me what she should do about the situation….
If I may ask…..what would you have said to her??
Here’s my two cents..
“…to everything there is a season…”
“Be honest with those who have hurt you
Prayerfully go to them
Share your heart and be real
If you have questions, ask
If you want to transfer, put in for it
If you get it, REJOICE!
If you don’t, KNOW there is a GREATER PURPOSE in your staying.”
As my friend and I were talking
I shared with her the timeliness of her call..
When I received her call I was sitting alone
on a trailer in front of our block barn
Feeling a bit overwhelmed
Remember…I’m real & I DON’T believe in accidents
In the moments just before this call
I had been wandering aimlessly around the barnyard
Because it had been one of those days
my “to-do” list had almost gotten the best of me
before going outside
pulling the rascals little red wagon behind me
picking up anything on the ground I could find…
I had made my way to the barn
and decided to sit down
“to BE STILL and KNOW that HE IS GOD”
As I looked across our barn lot
my mind began to race
As I thought of all that has gone on
In the barn lot
and in our lives in the last twelve months
Resigning from my job during a recession
doesn’t make sense on paper
Establishing a new business hosting farm camps and birthday parties on our farm
is something no one around here had done
Homeschooling the rascals
And most recently
purchasing a feed and seed store
Pondering how we’re going to manage it all …
Cowboy Dan’s horseshoeing season
And hay season
When I stopped and shook my head
No. I will NOT become anxious
No. I will NOT worry.
We will manage
By HIS GRACE
And with HIS STRENGTH
Which brings me back to my first thought
In this life..
Many things don’t add up….They don’t make sense
And that’s okay
We choose to “live by faith, not by sight.”
