So, I had this thing to which I was really looking forward. Might have been obsessing about it a bit. Maybe. And then, just like that, it was over before it even started. Not gonna happen the way I had imagined. At all. And I was tempted to be disappointed.But then it was as if God asked my heart, Why should you be disappointed with My best? Why? Indeed! God used that moment to remind me this "thing" is not about me. It's about HIM. HE knows what's best. HE's working out what's best. And HIS best is still best - even if it isn't what I wanted. Honestly, I was almost in tears because of the initial disappointment. But after God had that little talk with my heart, I was almost in tears for an altogether different reason. HE cares enough about me - about my holiness and my relationship with Himself - to do the hard thing. To say NO to me. To risk me being upset with Him. That is, God loves me too much to give me everything I want. Because HE knows what's best. And I'm learning to trust HIS best. Are you?
