God's Ways Are Higher Than Ours
Who do you think is happier?
If you guessed the second one, you're right. I had all the wrong priorities in the first picture. I rarely spent quality time with God, so while I may have been flourishing on the outside, on the inside I was wilting. Now by God's grace I am walking in His purposes for my life, learning to trust Him more every day. It may seem to society that I am not as prosperous or successful or beautiful as I used to be. What LIES! I overheard Brian tell someone on the phone the other day that he loves me SO much more today than he did on the day we were married. That thrilled my soul. As I get closer to God, I become more lovely to my husband. God's ways are so much higher than ours.
