In the past two months a lot of things have not worked out exactly as planned. I was disappointed a few times and felt a bit helpless. It just seemed like my perfect plan was falling to pieces.

At the same time I tried to remain hopeful and believe that God was working things out in my favor as he promised, because he knows exactly what is best for me.

I just want to write this quick post to say I’m thankful. I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time and I can attribute that to being surrounded by loving family and friends. I know that even though some things didn’t work out exactly as planned, God is always working behind the scenes and making the best decisions for us.

I’m really thankful for the amazing people God puts in my life, I can’t say it enough but I am surrounded by the absolute best people here and thousands of miles away and sometimes I forget how much of a blessing that is.

I’m happy and so thankful.

It’s November already and I’m praying that things only get better. Remember to focus on the good in your life, even if one thing isn’t working out as you wanted, trust that God is there and there are many other things that ARE working out (and usually far more important than what we worry about)

Love always,
Happy Sunday!

    Nothing had gone according to plan in my life in the past 5months. Some days I just want to give up and crawl under my blanket and cry but I remember greatness can never come easy. So I put on my big girl panties and keep it moving. Plus I pray a lot. It really helps. 🙂

    I love this post so much. Sometimes we just need to say thank you for all God’s mercies.
    We get so caught up in everything going on and we forget that God has our whole life mapped out in front of Him. This year has been very trying for me and it really tests your faith but I’ve learnt to just trust God.
