Changes and changes

Would you believe that Tuesday I was walking to the library in 70 degree weather and sweating, but Wednesday we got heavy flurries and I was freezing my toes off inside. That’s just Missouri, but the truth is life! You don’t really know where God is leading. It seems every time I tell myself I’m on top of things, God spins the world again. Yet how comforting to know he is in control! In fact, he planned every single detail from the beginning of the world. He knows exactly where I am going.

I recently met a really awesome young lady who is suffering from debilitating pain. She started treatment four weeks ago, but she has been told she will battle her problems for the rest of her life, and may not be able to run again. Talking with her was extremely encouraging as we shared life stories and what she’s been dealing with. She told me that she knew before her health problems, she had planned to get married, to have children, to teach children–but now, What are you doing, God? She doesn’t know! She doesn’t know why God is putting her through this or what she will be doing the rest of her life–but she does know he planned it all out. She does know is working things for her good. And she does know he loves her.

It could be called, “The art of losing control.” Not meaning we get rid of self control, don’t act prudently, and give ourselves over to fate–but we give ourselves over to God! We surrender our lives to him! He knows where we are going! I myself struggle with wondering where I am going, because I haven’t felt any real strong callings in live, music and writing being the closest thing, and some times I just grow frustrated, like God doesn’t know what I will be doing the rest of my life. So, what will I be doing? I don’t know! But I know that he knows and has it planned out. I know he works all things for my good. And I know he loves me.

What a comfort! That’s what I’ve been thinking about.

  1. Wow! How horrible. I had no idea Haley had debilitating pain. I will pray for her. God will work things out!
    Yeah, the weather this weak has been weird. Monday it was so nice we had a picnic lunch outside. Tuesday we had tornado warnings, apparently bc of the cold front, because then we got snow too!

                  I was so hoping you could come to the dances! Last night, haha, we had a big Ninja contest during the break, only it was boys against girls. There was a big line of girls in a row, so we all would move like a wave. It looked so cool! We would surround boys and kill em! And girls won! Both times!
                  Meghan wasn’t there =( she ran off to the dance Jeremy was calling, but I’ll see her hopefully in two weeks, and again the week after that.
                  We’ll be hosting dances though, I don’t think we’ll stop that, so in the future, you guys have to come to at least one! Hopefully.

                • Ooh, when you get my letter, send a hasty and lengthy reply! If you can’t do both, do hasty!
                  The dances have been great. We’re hosting another this Friday and hoping it all goes well. I don’t know but that I might play one of the dances on my tin whistle. ^_^ I want to play the Joe Cooley’s Reel. It’s an awesome song! And I think my dad will be playing guitar with me. Not sure if we’re doing it this Friday or the next dance we host.
                  I just got back from babysitting 9 kids for two hours. Ah! I’m so tired and my back is out of wack, but those kids–I’ll have to tell you about them in my next letter. They’re sweet. Luckas, the deaf boy, and his family aren’t coming anymore, sadly.
                  These comments are turning into letters!
                  I’m getting ready for Camp! I told you all about my story idea in the letter, in fact, I sent you the first scene. Tell me all you think about it!
