I woke up this Sunday morning, feeling very heavy burdened.
And I even began a quick draft of a post before I left
I usually am a very Cheerful, Positive,Encouraging person..
And when I woke up this morning battling Satan with
all this feelings of worry and disappointment, I couldnt
wait to get to church for some relief, cause I knew he couldnt follow me
See I had battled with Satan, ( The Chump, as I like to call him) over
the last couple of years, in regards to allowing him to steal my Joy.
And of course God gives me the strength and the ability to do that.
so much that I almost felt "Bad" this morning for feeling bad ..
"The Chump" is a sneaky little snake. I was feeling "Prideful" in my
usual attitude and outlook on life, and feeling how hypocritical in myself
and thinking " How can be a Godly Encouragement to people when I
cant see encouragement in my own life.."
So any way.. off to church I go, still feeling a bit angry and gloomy,
but needing refreshed by Gods word, and some heavy duty Worship...
And I hear in the service that my long time girlfriend, who has been
battling cancer, is having brain surgery on Wednesday to try and remove
a large tumor . And knowing the worries she must be going through
just made me put things into perspective. I was here worrying about
my husbands job, or lack there of. Envious of friends going on fun
vacations, when Im concerned about grocery's and gas money.
When she is wondering if she will see the face of her precious grandson
ever again after the surgery.
She is a WONDERFUL child of God,,and I have NO doubt that she will
come through this surgery, and glorify God every step of the way..
And I will leave my worry's at the feet of Jesus and quote this scripture
all week long.....
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Forgive me Lord for my moments of doubt..
