Best

I am going to ramble here a bit.

Permission please?
Oh, you said "yes."
I heard it loud and clear.
Why, thank you!

So, the thing is that sometimes when you are waiting for something for so long, when it appears to be coming finally, you are ready to take it any way you can get it. Even when things don't look quite the way you had pictured and it just doesn't feel right, you press on. You do it because it appears to be your only option- your only way to get the thing that you have been waiting for. So, you stuff down the wary feeling and try to gut it out because well, at least it will get you to that thing you had been waiting on.

But that is sooooo wrong. Let me tell you... it is sooooo wrong. Because it might be good and it might even be better, but it is not best.

And the God of the universe does not want you to settle for good or better. HE wants you to have what is best.

Amen, Hallelujah. Walk in that my Mamasistas!

Details, details, yes my friends- they are coming. Do you know that you are very patient?

Oh Brigetta I am cryin' a river right now. That post is for me and my Honey. We have been waiting for so long and today is the day we find out (supposedly) and I'm not sure if the answer we've been waiting for is the one we really want. We just need help! His job ends in 4 weeks. I am so frustrated with these people and yet we feel so desperate for a job...any job. Pray that God will make the right decision for us. I'm afraid if left on our own we would crumble. Thank you for this.

I feel like that is exactly what I went through to get my house. What a struggle and 5 months of stress. I do however believe in the end that I did get the best. I didn't settle. I fought hard for what I wanted and it paid off.

I believe you shouldn't have to settle on anything. Not material things or a relationship.

I believe that it takes hard work, dedication and sometimes hitting rock bottom to get what it is you are searching for.

Lifes about failure, because without failure we wouldn't know what it means or the joy of what it feels like to succeed!!

come see my Halloween SPOOKTACULAR.

Never settle for anything but the truth (which is the best), my dear. And sometimes it's difficult to see the truth, but deep down we know... God only knows, we know!

Helen McGinn said...

Oh, how truthful this is. I can't wait to know!! x

Brigetta, you can ramble on and write run-on sentences on my blog any time you want. ANY. TIME. Girl.

Okay, so to answer you question... I was born in Livingston, moved to Forsythe, near Miles City (where my little brother was born), then lived a big part of my life in Bozeman, while my dad attended MSU, (Go Bobcats!) and later moved to a blink-and-you'll-miss-it-town called Gallatin Gateway. I've been everywhere in Montana though, Vacationed in Kalispel, a tiny town called Essex, I still have friends in Havre etc. I have family in Livingston and another tiny town called Clyde Park. Then we moved around Washington and Canada after my eighth grade year. I LOVED living in Montana. The people are amazing and friendly and welcoming. I have very fond memories of my childhood there!


Blessings friend,
Sasha

That happened to me once...with a man. I thought he was the man of my dreams...thought it for over a year. Finally it looked like we would be together and I had this feeling like I couldn't breathe. Suddenly it was too much, and I realized I hadn't had time to think about whether or not this was really what I wanted.

It didn't work out...and now I know it was for the best. If it had worked out with him, I never would have met the wonderful man I'm with now!

You can ramble anytime with words soooo true as yours. All I can say is AMEN! He has worked many miracles in my life and many times those have come from waiting.

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Billy Coffey said...

Oh, how many times I've done this very thing! I've settled for good when God wanted the best. If only I'd waited just a tiny bit longer...

I can't wait for those details. You've gotten me very, very curious.
