Yesterday was quite a day! To say the least. I can't remember the last time I had someone put their hand up to me because she was too busy to help me.Yikes. And the list of the days events could go on and on... but it won't.
I know that somedays will be battles and somedays paradise. It is always best to be prepared for such days. It is not that I enjoy those days, but I must be prepared. Thankful for the lessons.
Today I sit at my desk, thankful for the gift of forgiveness. And thankful for His Word that is sown into my heart like the most beautiful tapestry.
I was so angry yesterday, at a lot of things, but one being my friend who put their hand up to me, I thought 'you wait til the next time you need help... do you know how many times i've stopped to help her? More times thatn she can count. I'll never...'
And then... I began to think of Phil 2
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
OH! I love/hate that.
Today I sit at my desk, not really sure what will come of today, but thankful for a God who forgives me, and has taught me how to forgive. Thankful for a job that not only challenges me mentally but spiritually to help me to grow. Thankful for a job that provides. All these things... are God's provision.
Dear Lord, I am thankful for Your story, for Your life, that makes mine so much greater. loveyou. Amen.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
