Full of faith. Prays multiple times daily. Is appreciative for all that she has and life in general. Cares and shows concern for others. Loves and provides for her family. Conducts herself in a way that a mature woman should. Works hard. Tries her best at everything she puts her heart, mind, and hands on. Has family and friends that support her and love her dearly. Perfect life, right? No worries, right? Everything is all good, right? WRONG!
Wrong? But how? When I see her, she is smiling. She has a nice house and a brand new car. She has nice things and a job with excellent perks. That’s what YOU see. YOU see the outside. YOU see what she wants you to see.
What is it that you don’t see? Could it be that she doesn’t get to see her family and friends often and it saddens her? Could it be that she struggles to maintain the nice house? Could it be that the only reason she has the new car is because the old car, the one with no payments, completely died on her? Or is it that the job with great perks pays coins instead of dollars and doesn’t seem to be leading to a career? Is it the fact that she longs for a meaningful relationship and just can’t seem to find one?
So here she is, in a state of confusion, frustration, sadness, fatigue, worry, loneliness, and financial hardship, all while being surrounded by people who care for and love her and continuing to smile, laugh, love, and live.
What do you do when you don’t know what to do? What do you do when you can’t do what you want to do? What do you do when you can’t quit or give up because people are depending on you? What do you do when you feel stuck? I know. I know. You keep praying, pressing, and going. You keep loving. You keep living. You keep trying to grow. You keep your faith. You keep your hope. I know. But what does that woman do when she becomes tired of praying, hoping, and waiting? Do you know? Any suggestions?
Just like hundreds of other women, this woman is ME! Tired. Frustrated. Often sad and lonely. Yet full
of faith and hope but growing wear in waiting.
So, if you are still reading (I know this one is longer than usual) can you answer the question? Do you have any advice?
What do I do when I don’t know what to do?
