OUR FIRST BUT NOT LAST Uncle Johns Cider Mill #weekend
This quick weekend trip was good for our souls (and so was this yummy restaurant 😉). I can’t remember a time where there was just such a joy throughout a whole trip. We are in survival mode this season, and have to take what we can get, as gifts. And I’m learning and deciding that’s okay. To admit that I am in a and am not thriving. I’ve tried to learn all I can about thriving in the seasons we are in when it feels like we can’t, but sometimes when you are very limited in abilities and it’s the same pain over and over again each day, it’s okay to accept that you can’t thrive just right now. In fact, a lot of times, that season is just called WAITING. And there might be a reason your season of surviving will look very different than your season of thriving. God uses the waiting periods. He allows the survival so we can better thrive later. These weekends or days of joy are our sanity within our suffering. And I think they’re more like intermittent gifts from God. .
I hear so many people say that God will not give you what you can’t handle in life. And I wholeheartedly disagree. Because life is not about us. It’s about Him. Which is the reason that our finite minds and bodies can’t handle so many of the hardships we go through—and that’s okay. All because the whole point is to go through life with such a great need and dependency on Him. I can say 100% honestly that my strength comes from Him, and if I was left to handle life myself, I wouldn’t be able to at all. So it is GOOD to admit our lack of ability, strength, and independence when it was all meant to be found in Him. #strongmarriage #marriage #weekendidos #weekend #instagood #milkandhoney #nashville #survivalseason #wholeheartedliving #pain #weakness #love #best #god #weekendvibes #thrive #lymedisease #seasonsofsuffering #seasons #survival #strength
