in His hands

"...the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord."

Job 1:21

I feel so selfish sometimes. Especially this last week. Yes breakups are hard and they hurt so bad, losing a job and having financial hardship feels unbearable sometimes, feeling like you've hit bottom because everything is falling apart in front of you...but I tend to forget how blessed I really am. I got mad at God this week, because I don't understand why all this hurt is happening. And yet, I have so much to be thankful for, God has blessed me so much...and what do I do? - I blame Him when things aren't perfect. Why do we do that? I know that I am in the Lord's hands, He has a great plan for all of us! I have hope in His grace and mercy, His love and forgiveness, and I encourage all of you who are down on your luck to continue to seek God and be thankful for what He's blessed you with.

"Consider it all joy my brethren,
when you encounter various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance."

James 1:2
(if you have time, read the whole chapter, James 1)

Oh honey. I'm praying for you! I know He has something great in mind for you. I've been there too questioning my position in life and quickly realizing that I have it so much better than most. I'm so grateful to have a friend like you and if you need anything, call me! I'm here girlie! Even if it is just to vent.
