You know, I've always felt loved. If not by the people who's affections I have lusted and wistfully hoped to receive, then by my family and dearest friends. I've only ever felt lonely when I've made myself lonely. When I over-think all the thinks I had and made myself crazy.
Lately, I don't know what it is, but I've been feeling really great about myself. Call it self-esteem or whatever you'd like. I mean... I inadvertently asked a REALLY cute boy on a date. And wasn't nervous about it. I mean, I thought I was just asking him to hang out, but... it ended up being a date. That's a BIG step for me. I wasn't uncomfortable at any point that night. I never got embarrassed about anything. It was pretty great. And I got to spend my evening with a cute boy. So, magical, obviously.
But anyway. That is NOT what this post is about. This post is about God. And just how great He is.
I found this quote on Pinterest and promptly made it my desktop background.
"Some days you get what you WANT.
And some days you get what you NEED."
Lately, I've been getting a lot of things that I didn't know I needed. I mean, people have been saying things that I needed to hear not only as a comfort, but also because I needed a kick in the butt.
Two different people who are half a world away from each other, have told me that God loves me. I've always known that, but sometimes you need an outside reminder. And both times, it was JUST what I needed. In that moment, in that day, whatever. It's amazing to see how God works through other people to make sure that you get what you need. Angels are around us, at all times, in all places. And I love it when they are so obviously present. Or, I guess, when I have my eyes open enough to notice. It's amazing. There are days when you get what you want (that boy saying yes to spending time with me) and there are days when you get what you need.(People reminding me that God loves me.)
Anyway, I thought I'd do a more spiritual type of post today because I played hooky from church. Not really, I had a migraine that made it so I could barely walk. So... church wasn't much of an option. But anyway, happy Sunday!
