LIFE IS HARD!!! Does everyone know this? I'm sure everyone does, but when those hard times actually come it's literally like a "BREAKING NEWS" kind of moment. The world stops spinning, life as we know it has paused and all of your attention is on the "news" of that moment. Maybe it's just me, but when something difficult is in my path, it's hard for me to focus our push past it until the problem is solved, a resolution has transpired or until I realize I was wrong, repent and that's when I can finally move on.
One of those "Breaking News" moments has come upon our family. For those following about our adoption, thankfully it doesn't directly involve that. That process is completely on schedule as far as we know. It's now a waiting game on our match. This particular news worthy moment is something that involves our immediate family. It's hard not to get into too much detail now, and I'm sure at some point I will, but for now just know our little family is needing prayers.
I actually started this post a few weeks ago, just hoping maybe it would work itself out by now. No, our family is still in "wisdom seeking mode" but we have succumb to the fact that no matter what God is in control. I know a lot of my posts seem to feature that sort of theme of trusting, letting go and giving control to Him. Obviously it's a personal struggle I have. When I write these posts it's like my own personal therapy session. Every word I type is sometimes a slap in my face, like God is using my fingers to tell me something He's been trying to tell me all along. "AIMEE - when are you going to let Me have control?!" I'm really trying...I think. I keep coming back to it though. Picking that same thing back up. How do you give Him full control over something? How do you not let those "breaking news" moments consume you and make your world stop spinning?
Faith. Prayer. Living in His Word.
Help me to live out those things, Lord. I don't want to walk this road without your guidance.
