From a lover of footy pajamas, grace, and all things confusing.

It's treat week everybody, two posts in one week! This post is inspired by a conversation Mckenzie and I had at school this week. We were both grappling with the grief and yuckiness that sometimes comes with life and what God's plan is in all of this. While neither of us have the answers, we have a God that, while he may keep some of the answers hidden from us, He will never hide himself. He is a constant comforter, healer, and carer of the broken hearted. I thought that since there has been a lot of things in the news these last few months that have been devastating I would take some time and share some things Kenz and I believe and that help us get us through it. 

   Footy pajamas are magical. Saturday mornings are magical. A lot of things about life are magical. But a lot of things about life are hard too. Like growing out of your footy pajamas- thats hard. And failing a test- thats hard. And parents divorcing, siblings dying, children starving, thats hard. It’s really easy to put your thoughts on the dark things of life, to have your mind consumed by the darkness. But by doing that, you are giving Evil glory. Because all that the Lord does is good and though it really does not seem that way sometimes, it's true. We cannot see it because we are broken and we aren’t God. Therefore we cant understand what God does because He is perfect and only does perfect things. He has a plan for everything and everyone and does everything for a reason. There is nothing that He does not understand. We have bruised, discolored, and broken hearts but we have a God that will take those hearts for us in a minute and make them brand-spanking new( 2 Corinthians 5:17) He will take your insecurities, doubts, and grief and hold them in His hand. He will walk you through the pain and give your life new breath. As humans, we want to control everything, even the bad stuff. But the bible reminds us to cast our anxiety's on him, because he cares for us! (1 Peter 5:7) So when darkness is covering your thoughts, let go. Take all your fears and throw them into the deepest of sea, bury it there, it has no power over you. Pray for understanding and I promise the Lord will bring it. He has a reckless love for you that will never fail, never run out, and never give up.
