Although all the devotions from Proverbs 31 Ministries are good, today's devotion by Mary Beth Whalen spoke to my heart in a way that few others have. Mary Beth tells about God giving new life to a dream she had given up on. I've long had the dream of being a stay at home mom, but it seems God has a different plan for me. While I know in my head that God's plans are best, the message isn't sinking into my heart very well.
Rather than believing that maybe God just has me in a training period before fulfilling my dream, I find myself throwing in the towel and pouting like a 2 year old who doesn't get what she wants. This devotion gave me renewed hope that God's timing is perfect and that his plans are worth waiting for.
Are there any dreams you've given up on? Maybe it's worth praying about today.
