Thoughts in the night...

As you can tell, I can't sleep. So I thought I might share the thoughts in my head. As I laid down trying to get to sleep, I played the days events over again in my head. Frustration was high today, wishing we could be done with our move and have our family all together again. Dread set in tonight, as I know William will be leaving again in just a few short hours. But as I laid there complaining to God, in my medial prayer, I kept being reminded of Jeremiah 29:11, it says, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I love the message version even better it says, "I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out, plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." Isn't that good! It's like He's saying, "duh Misty", don't you think I know what I'm doing? He knows how badly we want to sell our home and be all together. How quickly I seem to forget and allow myself to be caught up in the moments and emotions. I forget that He's the one in control, not me. I feel so much relief and freedom just in knowing that. There's nothing for me to worry about or be frustrated over. He knows!

Looking back over the last few years, through all of the hurts, struggles, and so much change, what I learned most is to Trust Him. I know more than ever, I can really Trust Him. He sees so much more than I do and He always has my best interest at heart. He gets the big picture even when I can't even begin to imagine it. He knows what's best for me even when I don't agree. He knows what lies ahead for me and exactly what I need. For that I'm so Thankful. I want my life to reflect Him. No matter where I am or what I'm doing. In the good times and the bad, I want to praise Him. It's really all about Him!

I look forward to this new chapter in our lives and can't wait to see what new adventures He has in store for us, when ever and how ever that might be. They certainly never seem boring here in the McGregor home. ha ha ha... God is so good and has blessed my life abundantly, so much more than I could have ever dreamed of. I couldn't want or need for anything more. What I want more than anything in my life is to be exactly where He is. If I'm where He is then that's exactly the place, I'm suppose to be.... So I will hang onto this verse, meditating on it, and just TRUSTING Him! His time is perfect!
