What do you do when things fall apart Pt 2

I wasn't planning on making a second part to this but, well, you know. Plans change and I got a great idea! Anyway, here's the second part to my post two weeks ago.

When I found out that the conference I was really looking forward to was canceled, I pleaded to God asking Him to somehow put it back on the calendar. End the coronavirus and bring make everything right again. But on a Sunday some time after that, I was watching church online with my family and I think it was an Easter service but the pastor said something about Jesus' words in the Garden of Gethsemane. "Not my will but your will be done." I don't remember exactly what the pastor said about that but something made me realize that, perhaps, it wasn't God's will for me to go to the conference.
That realization was somehow freeing for me and instead of praying "Please make the conference happen." I started praying "Lord, if it's Your will, please make the conference happen." He knew what I wanted and what I was praying before, was exhausting. As if, I could pray enough for Him to do something He would do it. But saying "if it's Your will," frees me and allows me to place the situation in His hands.

So, when things are falling apart, place the situation in God's hands and truly believe that He has your best interest in mind for the long run, because He does.

That's all I got for you today. I know it's another short post but this topic doesn't require a bunch of fancy words to get the point across. ;)

Anyway. Have a great rest of your Friday, stay healthy and go and change the world.
