Box of Chocolates.

“You never know what you are going to get,” Forrest’s mama says.

It’s true, you do not.

While my life has been saturated with overwhelming blessings, all too many to count, I think deeply over the times in my past and strangely find some of the purest moments of beauty are tucked inside of my darkest hour.

I have a heart to heart with a friend and we completely agree that you must allow God to take you there.

The place where you surrender fully. Where your fears, doubts, anger, denial, and desires are placed at His feet. Where you are willing to jump and not see anywhere to land.

You have to allow God lead you. Yes everywhere, even into the ugly. I guarantee it is there you will find a whole lot of pretty. He does make all things beautiful in His time.

There truly is loss when you won’t take the trip.

Oh, that I may I never miss His leading.

May I always be listening to His whisper.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11
