Trust God's Heart

God is too wise to be mistaken;
God is too good to be unkind,
so when you don't understand,
when you don't see His plan,
when you can't trace His hand,
trust His heart.

Somedays!!

I was having a wonderful day, until I let the devil have a small victory. Like with all ministry; it has its ups and its downs. We have been in full-time ministry for about 5 years. I am thankful for that time-but my heart has been hurt. I know the Lord allows us to go through things to teach us but sometimes I wish we didn't have to have the scares. Like I was saying...all was great till an e-mail from someone that the devil used (and maybe still using) to hurt a ministry. I know what they said, was only to cause hurt and ill will. I should have not let it, but my human side won out for a bit. It took a while for me to really give it to the Lord.
Some days I just wonder why me--when my human nature takes over. On other days, I understand; why NOT me...what blessing is the Lord giving me?! I hope that if you are having a "someday" day, that you will allow the Lord to use it to strengthen you--not give the devil victory.
The devil will put those people in your life--if they are not there already. We must pray for them; but know that "God is not mocked" and He will deal with the devil, even if someday is not today.

2010--Already!!

I can not believe how fast the years go by. Wasn't it just yesterday I was in high school, taking piano lessons (which I wish I'd stuck with), working at Ross? I was getting ready to graduate and head to college? Now my 20 year high school reunion is coming up this year and I am hoping to go. I just celebrated my 17th wedding anniversary and my first born is 15!! If I didn't have my 4 year old daughter, I'd really feel old.
We always seem to put thing off for tomorrow. May I be so bold to remind us, that tomorrow may not come for any of us. Like I said my high school reunion is coming up and on it's site it has the memorials for 3 of my class mates. In the grand scheme of it all we are still young and have our whole life ahead of us---but do we? The Bible says, "...now is the day of salvation." 2 Cor. 6:2 The Bible is full of this fact: Tomorrow may never come. I pray that I have been a good friend,a Godly example, a wonderful mom and wife, a blessed Pastor's wife--but more than that, I hope that my putting something off till tomorrow did not send a soul to an eternal hell. If you didn't witness like you should, if you didn't live like you should, or you weren't the Christian you should be---choose this first day of the new year to change. My favorite song says "little is much when God is in it.." So the little things do count--just give them to the Lord.
