i’m casting my cares on Him.
Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.
-1 Peter 5:8-10-The Message-
Some bits of advice given today were a little hard to digest. Sometimes i wish that things could be a little bit more clearer. Or that there was a manual that says “do this” or “don’t do that”. Clarity seems like a far-fetched thing in this situation. I suppose that’s where i learn to respect the opinions of others and once again trust that He has the last word. I suppose, since i’m not suffering with these bits, i’ll just pretend i could have my cake and eat it too? Oh, morsel.
I refuse to settle. *pulls the handbrakes with a screech*
