Two things.

1. The Lord is so sovereign. If there is one thing I've learned these past six months, it's this. Woven into every song, every conversation, every encounter is this sweet reminder -- the Lord's got this. He is lovingly in control of His family. There is nothing too small for Him to care intimately about. There is no area of my life that Jesus cannot look at & say in all His authority, "Mine." ...because the Lord is sovereign over every aspect of my life, & moreover, He is the loving Father who cares for His kids. This is the sweetest news, people.

2. He is worth the unanswered questions. This season has come with many, many questions & most (all) of them still remain a mystery. Learning to live with this weight of uncertainty is not easy; learning to fully trust that the Father "never denies us our hearts desire except to give us something better,” (thank you for your words, Elisabeth Elliot) is way prettier said than done. However, I'm finding that there is something beautiful about lessons learned in the waiting seasons, about saying yes to Jesus even when you don't fully know what you're committing to. So while I still face uncertainty & I don't have the answers, I trust His heart. He is good, He is faithful, & He is for us. He is worth where I am & He has promised to meet me here.

Thank you Rylie. I needed this reminder. Im sure I couldn't sleep at night if I didnt believe He has ALL of this. He IS good and so very faithful. Continuing to pray for your precious family.

sighs. yes. It's so much easier said than done, trusting Him with the unanswered. But very much a source of peace after leaving it all in His hands.

Love this. And love that quote by Elisabeth Elliott. I'm learning the same things & choosing to believe like you that god is sovereign & there is purpose in the wait!
