It has only been a couple of weeks since I last posted, but man, it seems like FOREVER!!!! My life is sooo busy crazy.
Yesterday when I was meeting with me mentor (someone much wiser than I :) ) she and I were talking and I was telling her some of what has been going on in my life and she said that things sound like they are pretty crazy for me, but then she asked "Hannah, are you content in where you are?" She made me think for a moment, but then I could honestly answer yes, that I am content. Life is full of ups and downs, and at times it seems like the downs outnumber the ups, but I know that God has plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans for hope and a future. I have struggled before in being content, wondering what contentment really is, and if it is even possible to find while we are here on this earth, but I have discovered that it is possible, and not just for a moment when everything is right. My life isn't horrible, but according to human standards very little in my life has gone "right" as of late.... God has shown me through all of this what it really is to be content. My soul is at rest in Him. For me that is contentment. I have felt it before, but I haven't realized what it really was. My life is on a roller coaster, but I am resting in Him. I KNOW that He loves me. I KNOW that no matter what He is ALWAYS going to be there for me. I KNOW that I will spend eternity with Him. I KNOW that He knows better than I do what is good for me and my life. I can see Him in so many ways. A few times people have asked me why I still smile when things get so rough in my life, and I usually answer with something like " there isn't anything else to do". God has blessed me in so many ways that when things get rough I remember what He has done for me, what He has brought me through and I have to smile knowing that He has plans for me. He love me sooo much! I wish I could convey with words all that my Savior does for me, but words cannot suffice.....
