Don't get me wrong, I can already hear the voices of the many friends and family that will tell me, "Maricris, God has great plans. We just have to trust in Him."
I love you all, and I get it. But in my humanity I couldn't help but ask Him that. All the things we do to live a righteous, holy life. All the things we do to keep our hearts guarded for God's love alone. It's a formula for a life of true happiness. I know that. I understand that. But sometimes, I can't help but stop and wonder what MORE He has planned for me. Yes, I will of course dwell in His presence and wait patiently. I will continue to live my life pleasing to Him. I will continue to work hard in my prayer time, service, work, and love for everyone around me. I will continue to keep my heart open despite these moments when I want to just take control of situations in life. I will continue to listen for His voice.
But is it okay that sometimes I just ask, "Lord...what's this for?"
