Great Message

I was sent this awesome email today. It really has a powerful message. It makes me think and really realize somethings.
"Awesome!! We complain about the cross we bear but don't realize it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we can't.
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But God's always ready, to answer your call.....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, dawn's early light....
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
to give you His grace, and send you His love... "
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

I love this! I complain a lot about what I don't have and wish things would change. I need to see that God has a plan for me and what I'm going through now is just preparing me for what God has in store for me. I have a wonderful life, wonderful husband, daughter and family. But there are other things in my life that are not so "happy". Like I've said before, I'm very thankful to have a job and good friends at my work, but this job is not for me. I know in my heart this is not where I belong. I just need to be patient and know that God has something much bigger and better for me and this is just my stepping stone. I need to quit complaining everyday and just look to the future and keep remembering that my time will come.

Dear Lord,
I'm ready for what you have in store for me. I'm ready to take that next step in life. If it's not time, I'll continue to be patient and wait my turn. I think you so much for what you have given me, Brad, Kynlie, family, and my job. You know my pain, you know my struggles, so I'm laying it all in your hand, as I should have done long ago and I'm prepared for what you want me to have. Whether it stay at my current job and grow or move on and do something much better. Thank you for yesterday, today, and I pray for an awesome tomorrow. I love you.
