Keep It Real Tuesday

You know what's real about life? Its unpredictability. The ins and outs, the surprises. The way we expect or want one thing and end up with its opposite.

But you know what else? Even in its unpredictability, life (and all its parts) means something significant.

These day-to-day things we go through, the good and bad, the comfortable and unsettling, it all works together to create a larger plan. We can't know it, that plan, but we have to trust it. We have to believe in it. To do anything else would be unproductive. To do anything else would give disappointment too much power.

So we hold our heads up and we live life.

And that's all I've got today.

I love this, Janna! We can't know the plan, but we must trust it.

So true. It's funny how things sometimes seem insignificant and then we look back and see how greatly it changed our life. And then vice versa, something seems huge and ends up being just this little blip...life is weird but I do trust that God has some interesting things laid out for us. :-) I hope your writing is going well!

It is a shame how often that I miss what I thought was insignificant but later learn it was so much more.

Good point.

Oh, gosh. You're right! I've been struggling with something for several days now, really worrying myself about it. When I read this post I realized it's been provided to me as an answer to a request I've made to God/The Universe for the last month.

Have a great day!
