Today I’m reminding myself that where I am is where I should be.
No matter how much I think I want to be in the other room. As much as I want the appreciation I think I deserve. Regardless of whether I feel my efforts are or noticed or not, He knows where I will bring Him the most glory. And I have to trust that.
Oftentimes, I think the grass is greener on the other side and forget that the side I’m on is personally landscaped and fertilized for me. When I start wishing my situation was different, I'm not only telling God He doesn't know what He's doing but I'm missing the opportunites in front of me. It's a waste of time. Today, I'm choosing to be present where I am and realize that I've been placed here for a specific reason.
May He teach us to be present on our own side of the fence.
Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places…~Ps. 16:5-6
He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters ~Ps. 23:2

One thought on “31 days: where I am…”
Nice post. Let’s get started…
Mine is 31 Days in Jakarta. Hope you like it. It tells you all about the daily life an Australia Expat family faces in a strange city in Asia.
