He can do more than we can ever hope or imagine. I have found this true so many times, we have big dreams or ideas about things and even with it seemly goes in a bad direction with time I can always see why He had a better, bigger plan that I could have imagined for myself. It is hard to remember this when you are in the middle of it though, why do we seem to have such sort memories.
Thats why I enjoyed the quoted above from todays Streams in the dessert reminding me that he gives us the desirers and dreams we have for a reason and He loves to delight His children and give us the desires of our heart even if in a way we don't want or expect, I truly believe the end result is fulfilling our desires. But there are so many more ways of filling those desires than the limited ideas we have. And thank God.
This also bring me to my weekly Bible study and our discussion of being a wife and the important role we have in the home. And giving weight to how important that role is, and not to put it down like we tend to do. I have a strong desire to be home and make it "homey" but I often put myself down for this desire as there are seemly so many more important things for me to do. But I am reminded though the study and through this great blog how very important it is to make time for the home. And to strive to make your home a place of peace for others to come and enjoy. And to not spend all your energy on other outside things and put it last.
Come with me as I discover how this works when you are out of the home for a necessary job 12 hours a day. I know God has me where I am for a reason so I know it must be possible, but I would love to see more tangible instructions some times.
