I should have written this post sometime last week, but I kept putting it off. I'm hoping that my procrastination will help me today to remember the good I have learned.
I have been struggling with having faith that things in my life will work out okay. Lately I feel like every direction I turn the door is being shut in my face almost so fast that I can't even take one step forward. I know that is one of the Lord's ways of telling me not to go in that direction, but I'm feeling like EVERY step I take is the wrong way. I feel like I'm turning in circles trying to find the way to go.
I was able to attend the temple last Friday and I was gently reminded that I was putting my faith in people, situations and things rather than my Savior. I realized that I was putting my faith in the arm of flesh. I had taken my eyes off the Savior and found myself sinking. I have tried my best to focus back on my Savior and have instantly felt peace.
I would love to say that doors have opened and I know how things are going to work out, but I can't. Apparently my current trial of faith is to trust Christ that doors will open when they are supposed to open and that because of Him all things will work out. It will not be because of anything I do. I know at some point I will see things clearly and have understanding. Right now I have to focus on trusting and believing Christ. It is difficult for me, but I have hope that Christ can and will provide the miracles I need when I need them.
