Five Minute Friday: Again.

I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo. She calls it "Five Minute Friday" and we just write...without worrying if it’s just right or not.

For only five crazy minutes we write with no reserve.  No edits.  It's awesome.  You should try it.

Today's topic:  Again.

Ready? Set? Go.

Every once in a while I find myself in this place.   A place of decision making.  A task that only I am responsible for, as it pertains to my life and the course of it's future.

Advice is offered from my closest confidants.  I soak it in.  But again, I am back to the place where I have to choose the path I will take.  I have to make the choice.

And again I go to the One who can help me.  The only place of solace in this crazy world.  The One who gives truth and peace to all who ask.

My answers don't always come in an instant.  Often, they take time.  Again I am reminded that sometimes the best lessons come while you wait.

A new year is upon us once again!  I love the beginning of a new year.  Everything is fresh and exciting.  There are so many things that could happen, and I never tire of the thrill of possibility.

I know that this year I will learn so many things.  Starting with one word.  Trust.

God is constantly teaching me to TRUST Him and His timing. I want to do things in my time and my way and I forget that my way is probably never the best way. As our Heavenly Father, God only wants the best for us, and sometimes that involves going through hard times, uncertainty and waiting.

As this new year begins I look forward to the many days ahead, wondering what they will bring.  Some will bring wonderful moments of happiness and joy.  Others will be challenging and hard.  One thing I know for certain, no matter what kind of day it will be I can always trust God and know that He will be with me.

My word for this new year is Trust.  Trust God with everything and see where He takes you.  I can tell you one thing, it will be a crazy, wild ride.  And it will be totally worth it.
