Story of My Life

Life has been interesting lately. Very interesting. I just feel like the world keeps trying to push me down and tell me that I can't have what I want and that I can't follow through with my plans. Everyday has been such a battle for me because I have no idea what to expect. I like having my life planned out, but when your plans keep getting shut down, it's hard to make more plans. It's driving me nuts!

But I'm beginning to learn some things...

Sometimes God has better plans for you. Even though your plans are well thought out, logical, and good they may need to be tweaked because you can't see the big picture. Sometimes you might even have the right plans, just not the right timetable. Sometimes your plans are just selfish and you need to be humbled. Most importantly, all the time you need to be willing to do as God would have you do, even if you can't see exactly where His path will leave you. What you can see is that His carefully guided path for you will lead you to the most happiness you could ever have. This path may be hard and it may not make any sense whatsoever right now, but it'll only make you stronger and more prepared for whatever life throws at you.

In my institute class (which I love ever so much) we discussed the importance of living your life knowing that you are an eternal being and that your choices effect so many peoples' lives. We need to stand for what is right and do those things which will make us eternally happy, not just happy for the moment.

Other good news....

  • It hasn't snowed for a while (knock on wood)
  • This semester is almost over
