we have arrived!!

I know that you may think that saying "we have arrived" is a little pompus so I will explain what I mean. Matt applied for his masters in Architecture and didn't get in. We were both a little shocked and wondering why. We both thought that God's plan for our lives was Matt becoming an architect and then we will have made it. The money would be awesome the lifestyle would be great, and maybe then we would be happy. So, Matt came home from work after a long day of praying about it and came up with this answer.
God doesn't want us to always be looking to the future (here on earth) saying it will be better when (I get that job, I loose weight, ect...). We can get caught up in that and by the time you know it, your 80 years old and looking back saying did I really live my life? By always looking into the future you miss the blessing that God has given right now. My family, my house, my job, my friends. I don't want to miss the blessings that are right in front of my face. So, therefore, Matt and I have arrived and we are going to enjoy and appreciate every moment God has allowed us to have.

Awesome post. It's kind of funny because God has been dealing with me and my husband about the EXACT SAME THING lately. At least He's consistent.

What a great post!
This is from a book called Jesus Calling! My friend left it in a comment on my blog a few days's supposed to be like Jesus speaking to it is "Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy--even precarious. That's how it should be. Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future you are grasping at things that are Mine. This, like all forms of worry, is an act of rebellion: doubting My promises to care for you."
Deut 29:29; Psalm 32:8
It was really good for me to read and then follow up with the scriptures. I miss you friend!
