So I woke up this morning and was reflecting on a little ‘disappointment’ that I recently experienced. I expected to get a positive response regarding a possible new opportunity/venture, and instead of hearing ‘yes’ or even a ‘no’ I heard nothing!!! (enter surprised emoticon)
Well as I began getting ready for work today and I reflected I began to feel sad, and even felt a bit of discouragement creeping in, but right as things started to feel negative I stopped my mind from even going any further and said aloud ‘Listen Colleen… what’s for you…. IS FOR YOU!!!’ and then a scripture popped into my head/heart: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path” Proverbs 3:5 One thing that I know for sure is that I trust in God, and even in that moment my faith in God was being tested and I had the opportunity to either continue thinking negative and discouraging thoughts… OR I would stop the negative thoughts and replace them with positive, encouraging and TRUTHFUL thoughts instead.
I’m so happy that I decided to do the later, as my day turned out to be a great great day, and although I’m still faced with not getting the answer that I was hoping for, I have been reminder that I am, and will continue to be JUST fine because I’m allowing God to direct my path, (by trusting in Him).
Thanks for the friendly reminder Lord!
