Whew! As you know, I just finished a business event. It was absolutely, positively life changing. I learned SO much and have already changed my mindset about SO many things! I cannot wait to see how the next few months go!
We had one thing come up at the event that we need to decide about. A big, scary decision. A “jump off the cliff and trust that it’s a good thing” decision. It’s crazy that we’re even considering this. I cannot believe we are! But, I think it will change our lives and will open up doors and opportunities we never could have dreamed up ourselves.
In thinking about this decision, we have already covered it in a TON of prayer, chats with friends and a bit of reading. I spent today outside, praying and reading. Here’s an awesome quote I wanted to share!
“He knows too that God is always wise, and, knowing this, he is confident that there can be no accidents, no mistakes; that nothing can occur which ought not to arise. He can say, “If I should lose all I have, it is better that I should lose than have, if God so wills: the worst calamity is the wisest and the kindest thing that could befall to me if God ordains it.” “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.” The Christian does not merely hold this as a theory, but he knows it as a matter of fact. Everything has worked for good as yet; the poisonous drugs mixed in fit proportions have worked the cure; the sharp cuts of the lancet have cleansed out the proud flesh and facilitated the healing. Every event as yet has worked out the most divinely blessed results; and so, believing that God rules all, that he governs wisely, that he brings good out of evil, the believer’s heart is assured, and he is enabled calmly to meet each trial as it comes. The believer can in the spirit of true resignation pray, “Send me what thou wilt, my God, so long as it comes from thee; never came there an ill portion from thy table to any of thy children.”
‘Say not my soul,
From whence can God relieve my care?
Remember that Omnipotence
has servants everywhere.
His method is sublime,
his heart profoundly kind,
God never is before his time,
and never is behind.'”
From Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
I can’t say quite yet what this big, new thing is, but know you’ll know soon!
