Words for the Weekend { Trust Your Struggle }

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the importance of living in the present and even more importantly, approaching each new day with an attitude of thankfulness and trust. Trials and tribulations exist to make us stronger. Obstacles block our path and doors close in order to lead us to the future that awaits us. I choose to believe that God has a blessed plan for each of us, a big plan, that sometimes feels impossible to understand. I love those profound few moments in life when everything makes sense, every little detail appears perfectly woven together, and the entire season of struggle makes sense. It's been a long time for me, but I have a good feeling that I'm approaching that moment of clarity someday soon...

Speaking of living in the present, I'm ridiculously excited about watching the Academy Awards tomorrow!! Brandon and I have been trying to watch as many of the Best Picture nominees as possible and I'm still brainstorming for snack ideas. What was your favorite film this year? Any other Oscar predictions? Or snack ideas?

Happy weekend!!

  1. I'm catching up on google reader, just reading this post. Wow, just what I needed to hear right now. I'm looking forward to the day when I can look back on these times with perspective and an "I get why I went through that" kind of understanding".
