I have been looking forward to this weekend for weeks now; my guy and I are headed to the West Coast for a few days away. Time alone together, sunshine and a fabulous conference I have wanted to attend make for a dream come true for me. Except now there is a major snowstorm headed our way, expected to hit on the day we leave. And another one behind it, expected on the day I return. I’m not convinced we are going anywhere.
I was talking to a friend yesterday who encouraged me to call the airlines and fly out before the storm, do whatever it takes to get there. Although I would love nothing more than this time away, I don’t plan to force it to happen. I have found that pushing my way in to what I want doesn’t usually deliver what I want.
God is well aware of our desire to get away, along with the agendas of so many others that this storm will affect. My job is to trust that no matter what happens, it was for the best. But I am still packing and planning and looking forward to time with my guy.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not in your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
