When I lost Layne I didn’t just lose my best friend and fiancé. I had the life I had dreamed about since I was little girl all within my grasp, and that was all taken away in an instant. I had the dream guy, and we were going to get to ranch and carry out our big dreams and plans together.
I know God has a plan and that it’s far greater than mine, but this week being back to school I’ve really struggled wholeheartedly believing in that. Why would God completely crush my dreams when they were in reach? My senior year was supposed to include settling down with my husband and helping ranch on the weekends. And why does it seem like when I finally get back going in the race of life, something comes along and knocks me flat once again?! Will I ever get to go back home to the ranch that I love or what does God have planned??
This morning I called to vent to my best friend and not too long after her mom quietly slipped the piece of paper pictured below to her in church. Bev had no idea about mine and Holly’s conversation, but God did!!!
People, our God is faithful and he is GOOD! He doesn’t promise bad things won’t happen in this world. We live in a sinful world full of sadness and hurt. But God does promise to help us through our struggles and to always be there.
Have FAITH my friends because God’s plan is far better than our own. We just need to pursue Him and give it all up to him. We can’t do it on our own. It’ll be worth the wait
“And it seems to be but hard cruel fate, still I hear that gentle whisper ever pleading, God is working. God is faithful. ONLY WAIT”
