♥ I have big plans...

I'm sorry I've been so full of blogging fail, lately. I have a ton of thoughts soaring through my brain; but, unfortunately, I'm not able to share most of them, right now.

I really hate being controlled in that way. I hate being put under a microscope when everything within me says that what I'm doing is right and I'm doing it in the right way. But, that doesn't matter to some people. Anyway, this too shall pass and then once I am in the clear I'll share with you all about how I've grown in these past six months.

I have big plans for my future (on a side note, I am again listening to The Winner Is from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack- this song does wonders for my writing abilities). And following along that thought pattern, I am clinging to the promises that have been given to me since before I was born: I will have a fruitful and blessed life. I will receive all the desires of my heart. I will love again and live long, happy days.

Thankfully, I have received so much support and an overwhelming amount of requests for my jewelry. Per Nomz's suggestion, I think I'll post key pieces (or maybe all) each week. You can also see them here: Sarah Michal Creations.

Ever have issues with trust? *raises hand* You'd think that after serving the God of this universe for about twenty years, ten of them being quite pivitol, I'd have caught on. Why have I never been dropped? Why does everything I touch turn into a blessing either for myself or someone else? Why do my mistakes not completely ruin my life? Because He is bigger; because He is still on this throne; because all things are subject to Him; because He loves me and made me in His image. Because He will never let go of me. Like I've said before, sometimes I can shout this in the face of all the issues that try to intimidate me and other times I'm repeating it as a chant just loud enough to drown out my own doubts.

I'm going to post a little reminder here, for the rest of you who are going through something and need an anchor. Remember each word as if they were spoken directly to you:

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed He was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from His life. For each scene He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to Him and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of His life flashed before Him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of His life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.

This really bothered Him and He questioned the LORD about it. LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.

The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.
