One of Those Days
So today is one of those days. One of those days when it seems so hard to smile, hard to keep the faith. This is in spite of being abundantly blessed by my Heavenly Father. In spite of knowing in my heart that I serve a Lord who wants to prosper me and not harm me. As I write this, I realize that I do not have the luxury of allowing any thoughts from the enemy to enter my mind. I am looking around my (very) messy house and loving every inch of it. I am watching the baby intently grabbing the pail and finally putting it over her head. I am watching a very inquisitive and sensitive 4-year old become totally engrossed in his LEGO play. I am listening to a husband straightening up the kitchen after dinner thereby giving me the means to write in this blog. I am incredibly blessed and my God is an Awesome God! He is truly the author of all that is good and right and His power and His mercy know no end. The truth is that over the course of this day I was able to help a hurting family minister to their teenager, have a great disussion with a local pastor who is incredibly supportive of my mission and is allowing me to have an office in his church, reconnect with a (paying) writing client and fellowship with a mommy friend whom I discovered has a passion for writing like I do. This has been a day created by God and in His goodness He has protected my family and I throughout from countless possible mishaps. I continue to grow in grace and truth as I wait in joyful hope for the Christ to return.
