πŸ€” Do you ever walk towards something with πŸ˜ƒ excitement and πŸ˜† eager anticipation, only to trip and fall down the flight of stairs as you’re approaching the bottom, and have the opportunity vanish into thin air?
.
No? Just me? 😬 (thankfully at least, it’s only metaphorically and I didn’t scrape my knees or stain my white skirt after this picture was taken!)

This last week has felt like a lot of “yeah, NOPE!! That’s not for you! (Insert slammed door πŸšͺ here)” and while I’m trying to see the hidden blessings, admittedly those blessings feel like they’re tiny freaking ninjas… in camo… in a pitch black cave (i.e. verrrry hard to see)! πŸ‘€πŸ”Žβ‰οΈ
.
This week has been a lot of πŸ™ “please be praying for me” requests and πŸ€• “I need to borrow your faith because mine feels like it’s suffocating” messages to friends.
.
It’s been a bit of an emotional roller coaster, and there’s been some hurt and disappointment 😟
.
And hey – I understand that stuff happens and things don’t always go our way 🚫 But understanding that doesn’t mean we never experience pain. It simply better equips us to handle it when it does.
.
πŸ˜” When you’re facing disappointment or you’re feeling hurt, who do you turn to? Do you have people you can reach out to with an πŸ₯Ί “I’m not doing well and I could really use some support” ask?
.
We always have πŸ’ž God, AND He gave us friendships for a reason. We’re not meant to do life alone, friends 🀍
