I have been thinking about the last sentence in my first blog entry. The word worthy was not a good choice. God calls me His friend, but am I worthy? Absolutely not!!! I am so grateful anyone calls me friend. I mean this, especially lately. I have been so consumed with walking a very familiar road due to someone else's choice in my life, that I haven't been a very present friend. Thank you friends for sharing a small or large part of your life with me. I always ask God to give me the friends He wants me too have and He does. We don't choose our family, we do choose our friends. Some of mine are as close as or closer than family. Now about the less than desirable road I've been on lately. It really is a matter of trust. Do I trust Jesus? Do I believe He knows what is best for me? If yes, then who am I to question what has been allowed to take place in my life? Is it easy? I would have to answer with an emphatic NO! I remind myself of God's truth. He only allows what He knows I can handle. It is for my good. He gives me the grace I need. He is walking it with me. He loves me. Whatever you may be walking through is not hidden from Him. May you find peace in that. "In my trouble I called to the Lord. I cried out to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my call for help reached his ear." Psalm 18:6.
