I believe with all my heart and soul that God always has our best interests in mind. He knows all and the plan He puts in place has perfect timing. So why do we continue to doubt Him even when He proves this to us time after time? I wish I knew. I spend far too much time worrying about how things will turn out. If the path or destination and the timeline is a mystery to me I will stress and worry myself into a fit. And yet God always provides. And my worry has never achieved a thing.
I got a reminder of this over the past few weeks. A month or so ago, a brown sparrow laid 5 eggs in a nest she had made in a wreath on our front door. About 2 weeks later the eggs hatched. Unfortunately one egg fell out of the nest and was crushed and another just never progressed. Of the 5 eggs, 3 of them actually produced baby birds. It was such a blessing for our family to watch the circle of life unfold.

Thanks for the reminder, God. Maybe next time I will trust more and worry less.
