Watercolor Birth Annoucements by Graceline Art

Thank you for writing this! I’ve been struggling recently with accepting God’s plan for my life, not my own.

Oh how God sure did have different plans for me! I love my husband and the life we have created together and I wouldn’t change that for anything. I do still feel the urge to accomplish more in life. I need to learn patience & acceptance for his plan is better than our own.

I am so grateful for your honesty! I have truly struggled with the acceptance of God’s plan in comparison to my own and it’s humbling to see others whom are on a similar journey. You have a beautiful life and I am so thankful that you are so willing to share it with us. Your story is such an inspiration!

Wow what a post! Thank you so much for writing the stories of your heart and sharing them on here. I’m often thinking of the dreams and visions God has given me and wondering how they translate to where I am right now. I know ‘m where He wants me but I thought it would feel different! The long journey is tough and I am weary and yet He sustains me in my lack of knowledge to just keep on moving and trusting.
Thank you again for your honesty and generosity in sharing it on here. Your little space has been used to open my eyes many times.
