I've been struggling with something that I can't talk about right now for the past several days. Really struggling. I've been asked to do something that I really don't want to do, but need to/should do.
This morning I was VERY angry and frustrated. VERY.
I told my husband how upset I was about it and he didn't have much to say about it. I wrote in my journal, venting and trying to get rid of my anger and frustration. I haven't felt some of these emotions with such intensity since I was a teenager.
I haven't wanted to pray about it. I'd thought about going to the scriptures to find some answers, but because I'm personally studying in Isaiah (a slow in-depth, exhaustive study), I doubted that I'd really find any answers there.
I sat down to lunch today, and said a blessing to thank Heavenly Father for the blessings I do have, and for my yummy turkey noodle soup with homemade noodles I was about to eat. Part of my prayer was also for understanding - that somehow I could find it as I read my scriptures during my lunch.
I opened my scriptures to my bookmark in Isaiah to where I'd left off and began to read.
The entire chapter was written specifically for me at this moment in time. I am sure of it. There is no way that I could have found a clearer answer than what I found in my scriptures today. Specifically for me and my situation.
While maybe still a little fearful about going forward, I am now at least peaceful and have faith that it will work out and be for the best. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and knows my wants, needs, desires, and that He also knows what is good for me. Much better than I know. I'm grateful for that.
