Sometimes, the answer is no

People say that questions to God have three possible answers. Yes, no, and not yet. And today, I got a no where I was expecting a yes. And to say that I’m not taking it well would be putting it lightly. I’m not sure where to go from here. I wish that this was a post where I told you about how this one thing happened that wasn’t great, but then this even better thing happened, and look how it all turned out. This isn’t like that. It might be, someday, but I’m not there yet. I’m still reeling, and trying to figure out where to go from here. I know that God has this, just looked he has everything else. And I know that he has great things planned for me, because the Bible says so. I know that hopefully someday, I will be able to look back and say, ok, I see why that happened there, because it worked with Your plan, and that made way for this.
But for right now, friends, I don’t have any answers for you. To quote the Chronicles of Narnia, “onwards and upwards.” That’s all any of us can do, really, we pick ourselves back up, brush ourselves off, and start again. The whole time, clinging to God, who is with us every step of the way.
Now it’s time to make a new plan, to dare to dream a new dream. And to turn my face towards heaven.

To onwards and upwards,
Em
