Happily Missed..


We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend, and we had a wonderful weekend spending time with family! My brother-in-law and his family moved 3 hours away from us this summer, and we finally had the opportunity to go and visit them. Their move has been a lot more difficult for me than I had anticipated. They have 4 children who my kids adore, so it has been hard to transition from seeing them at least once a week to not seeing them for a few months! I know, however, that they are exactly where God wants them to be. I know that this is the best place for them! So, I lay my selfishness to aside and rejoice for God's goodness in their lives!

I find this is relevant to so many situations in life. While we may not always view things as being ideal or convenient for us, we must always remember that God's way is best! If we always choose what is comfortable when God is perhaps directing us down a path that doesn't seem as straight we will find ourselves more lost than ever! My heart wants to be exactly where God wants me even when it doesn't appeal to my flesh..

  1. This is so true and I can definitely relate to this. Some days I feel like it's not fair that I'm on the West Coast and so many of my closest friends and family are in New York. It gets very rough, but what keeps me grounded is knowing that it's God's will for me to be exactly where I am.
    Great post! Thank you for sharing and thanks for linking up!

  2. This is something that God is currently teaching me. I think I pursue a life of comfort but I know that God wouldn't have me be comfortable, He would have me serving.

    Thank you for sharing!

  3. In the past couple of years my family has all spread out across the country. Not fun!
