OMG, happy belated birthday, girl!! You’ve got some great advice packed into this post 🙂
“God’s best doesn’t always come packaged in the way you imagined” – I love that you said this because this has been something that I’ve especially been learning over the last couple years, that God’s plans and timing don’t always fall into the same idea I have of the “perfect plan” in life or “perfect time” for things to happen. I’ve also learned that things will work out though, because ultimately God’s timing is perfect; He knows just what we need to grow and when the right time is for us to experience that growth (including the people that will or won’t be in our lives at the moment of that growth). And recently, I’ve found that sometimes the Lord needs to grow us first, so that He can shape us more into the person He wants us to be, before He places specific people into (or back into) our lives.
Isaiah 55:8-11 says: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (NIV)
Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful birthday week and some chocolate cake (or whatever flavor you like) to celebrate! Hehe 😀 Happy 22nd Birthday, Misha!!! <3 ~L
