this today

this-today-via-la-la-lovely

do you ever wonder if you are right where you are supposed to be?

perhaps, in a physical sense, but also in a state of being.  if the step that you took was the right foot you were supposed to put in front of the other?

maybe, like me, you’ve been living in a slow long time.  working hard at wishing your way out of things or situations that have no way of undoing, by you.

but, consider what it may be doing in you.  building in you.  you may be surprised that over time you will find strength for your weakness, courage triumphing over fear, and even hope in place of despair.

 

 

some of places (figuratively and literally) i’ve been, where i’ve surely thought i had misstepped and made a wrong choice, i’ve come to find, sometimes years later, that that is exactly where i was supposed to be.  that, although the outside view was sometimes short in success, the inside was a slow process of watering and growth that would later produce beautiful fruit that was needed for my tomorrows.  over and over again, i’ve found that the yesterdays had specific purpose in the todays.

so, if you are questioning where you are today lovely, realize that this today has everything to do with that tomorrow.  whether inward or outward.

give thanks for today and that you are exactly where you need to be.  everything you need is being worked out in you and for you.  so dig deep, get to watering and simply trust that god will provide all that you need in this day for all your tomorrows (he is already there).

p. s. and remember if you are at an ending, it’s probably just a beginning.

    I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how much I needed this today. I’m at this weird, in-between season of my life, one that isn’t really lining up with everything I *thought* I had planned, and it’s starting to break me. Part of me wants desperately to believe that you’re right – that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be at this moment. I’ve been awake for about two hours, worrying and getting myself sick over the now and the future, and this blog post was the FIRST thing I saw in my reader this morning. So thank you. So much.

    @Joelle, hugs to you. in betweens are hard…sometimes i feel like i’m in a constant in between, but i’ve been in enough of them to see things string together. i’ve been in seasons that looked like a big mistake but during them i’ve made things like friendships that are very much have purpose for today. and as for the breaking …. don’t fear it. there is freedom on the other side of it. there is beauty in the brokenness. i’ll be praying for you today that peace replaces your worry and you’ll beging to see purpose in the path that you are on. xoxooxooxox

    What a wonderful, wonderful reminder. I am constantly re-telling myself a similar story to counteract fear and self-doubt. Thank you! xo

    Your words fit a perfect part of my worried heart! Thank you for your writing. I always look forward to your posts especially the ones that are more personal. They hold allot of love and power. Again thanks for sharing, you made me have hope for today, which in turn dispels my worry about tomorrow.
