Being real?

Ok so far in my blogger history I have stuck to pictures, funny stories, etc. But I decided tonight is the night I'm gonna get real....
So the past 2 days have been really hard for me. Not really going to go into too many details, but I've been doing some really hard thinking and praying! I know that our God is so amazingly faithful, yet I totally have a hard time turning things over to Him! Why is it that it comes so easy to call up a friend and complain about life's happenings or a tough situation, yet to sit down and give it to God takes some major effort? Well, tonight I made that effort. Do I have an answer to my problems? Well, the answer is no, I don't. Which would normally have me stressing. But as I sit here in the dark in my nice, semi clean, apartment watching the amazing lighting flashing in the sky outside my window, I know that everything is going to turn out alright. I don't know how, I don't know when, or what will happen, but I know I am not the one in control right now. I'm leaving it at the feet of my Jesus!
I'm praying for wisdom, strength, and courage, and we will see what happens! Thanks for reading this! I appreciate all of my faithful readers... especially you Amanda! I love you girl!

Oh Sarah -- I think we all struggle with turning things COMPLETELY over to the Lord, without trying to hang on to that little corner. To trust and yield completely is really hard, because we still want (at least a little) control. Keep seeking Him, and I KNOW that He will show himself faithful -- and you'll gain a new testimony for Him in the process. Love you!

I love the pics, love the funny stories, and I love you being real! It's so easy to want in life what we can handle or control, isn't it? How awesome it is that you are getting to experience the peace of giving something over without knowing the outcome!

Sounds like we are both learning to let go and let God. I will be praying He reveals His awesome Will to you in a way that makes you stand in awe.
