I’ve been trying to make sense of this new reality for months. Someone significant in my life let me down and I’ve had a really difficult time trying to figure out what to do. I was engaged, and now I am not, and that’s a choice I never anticipated having to make when I was a little girl. When dreams and plans shatter, there are two primary options: numb ourselves and deal with it later, or cling to God as we sift through the facts until they make some sort of sense. I don’t have all of the answers, but I do know this: as counter-intuitive as it seems, we have to trust God and smile during the difficult seasons of life.
