why is it bothering you?

banana bread (double recipe) in a bundt pan
Yesterday I had quite a little meltdown.  I really couldn't figure out the heck was my problem.  it wasn't something that doesn't happen (or seem to happen!) every day!  It really bothered me, and I wish that I could say I handled it well... but I can't.  


And like all things, when I mess up, I can focus on them all day, even for weeks!  ugh :/


Today I wrote out my scripture verse of the week:


Psalm 55:22 
 Cast your cares on the LORD 
   and he will sustain you;
he will never let 
   the righteous be shaken.



I knew that cast was used a lot in the bible so I decided to look it up in my Strong's concordance (I'm still amazed that I have one of these! I would recommend you get one!) 


Cast (H7993):  To throw out or down


So as I went on my walk/run this morning (after I whipped up some yummy banana bread), I really prayed about this.  Why did this bother me?  What at the core is the issue?


Pride.  


Ugh.  


I hate that lesson.  I want to make sure people know that I did a good job.  That I... that I... that I... oh boy.


All day as I was 'memememememe' I was remembering the cross and how He... How He... How  He...  my little meme seems very insignificant.  I don't do a good job of showing the world who He is if I am singing a 'meme' song.


Thankfully His mercies are new EVERY morning, and in my case, sometimes every minute!


Lam 3:22-23 NKJV
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Memememe's are okay, IF we don't lose sight of Jesus and you dear girl never do! We all have those days now and again...I love you!

'His mercies are new EVERY morning' indeed! And at His feet we come humbly to leave the memememes and trade them for yes Lord, yes Lord, yes Lord.
