Something happened to me today that just really brought my spirit down. I got very discouraged. But as usual I picked up my Bible to read my daily reading. I began reading without really reading because I didn't really want to read it. I mean, when I am discouraged and feel like God doesn't care about me I don't want to read my Bible (but I still make myself do it). Well, as I lay here on my bed reading, a scripture jumped out at me. It said, "For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
When I read that tears flooded my eyes and I began crying. I felt as if God was telling me, "You just watch and see. I have a plan for your life." And that was exactly the encouragement that I needed. Because sometimes I get so down. Sometimes (or most times) I don't want to live here in Mexico. And I feel trapped because even if I wanted to leave I have no where to go. No way to support my own self. I often feel hopeless. But I know that I just have to hang on because someday God is going to do something in my life. And I suppose that as a human being my flesh wants to rush everything and make it all happen now. But when it's not God's will, it's not His will. It's that pure and simple.
I don't know why I am writing about this on my blog, but maybe it will be a blessing to you.
Anyways, that's all I wanted to say.
P.S. I'm really starting to get into blogging! I just want to write every cotton-pickin' day!
