A lovely autumn afternoon...

As I sat sipping my delicious spring cherry green tea in Beans and Brews yesterday afternoon, working on my French paper, and waiting to meet a great friend, I found myself watching all the chaos happening outside. I was at the coffee shop in Draper, right on 12300 S. so it was quite busy all afternoon. I wondered to myself if any of those people out there realize that they don't have to take care of things on their own...that God has it all under control.

It was so great to get together with my friend Kelsea, we haven't really seen each other for a few months now. We had a very uplifting and strengthening discussion and I left feeling happy and confident. I can feel things in my life changing for the better. Its amazing.

Have you ever had the feeling that you're falling and grasping out for anything you can hold onto? I've been feeling sort of like that lately, spiritually, although I no longer feel like I'm falling. I finally feel like I've grasped onto God's hand, and now I'm doing my part to pull myself up, even though I know that's not how it works. All I really have to do is trust God to lift me back up, and he will. So why is it so hard sometimes? There is always a reason not to trust in him....we think we can do life on our own...how wrong is that. I've come to realize that throughout the last two years. I'm finally to the point where I feel like I am constantly thirsting for more of God's love in my life, more of God in me. I love it. I have finally decided to trust in him alone. And its the best decision of my life.

"The Lord says, 'I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."
Psalm 32:8

"Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track."
Proverbs 3:5-6
