I Needed a Plan B

I went to church for yesterday for the first time in Idon'tknowhowlong.

I didn't want to go.

I have been reallyreallyreally angry with Him. I haven't talked to Him. I haven't been to His house. I haven't had my morning quiet time.

I have been angry and miserable. Angry and miserable does not make for a happy blogger.

But I went here. And this place feels like home.

What's even better is that we both like it.

I walked in the door and I knew He was talking to me.

The new sermon series is "Plan B: What happens when life doesn't turn out the way you thought it would?"

The pastor said a couple of things that I haven't been able to get out of my head:

1. God is most powerfully present when we feel like He is most apparently absent.
2. I can choose to trust in God's IDENTITY, not in God's ACTIVITY. I wept on and off throughout the entire service.

I decided to stop being angry about things that are out of my control. I decided to focus on what I can do: love her, pray for her and rest in His identity.

If you would like to listen to what I believe is an amazing series, click here. The podcasts are free! :)

You should definitely check it out!
