It was a rocky week this last one. And I may have had a crying jag Friday to release some of that tension. I am writing on Sunday morning and I am going to admit a Christian no-no–I am skipping church. But I am doing a GOD yes–I am resting. I am not getting out of my jammies today. Not. gonna. do. it. I am going to write about Jesus and then I am going to paint with Jesus all day. I need some alone time with Him…some long extended alone time with Him.
He blessed me as I woke up with a prayer. As I laid in bed I started thinking back at all the GOOD things that happened to my family, and me, all week. And in reality it was a great week of some cool accomplishments. Phoebe had a great recital/celebration of her new friends in dance. Family came to visit. Annika did really well at her math bee. Tanner’s friendships shined. Jeff had a couple interviews finally. The violets popped in our yard. Jeff and I had fun fishing with Annika’s class two mornings. God kept listing the blessings and they just flowed over me until I teared up again. He was telling me to trust Him…this is the right place for my family. Satan might be trying to challenge that, but God made our purpose here evident to me. And doesn’t Satan work His hardest against us when we are living for Jesus the most?
Sorry this post was a lot about me…but maybe you will see yourself in my words this morning. Let yourself count the blessings that God has flowing to you. Sometimes all it takes is a good cry to release the tension Satan causes– to make room for the Spirit to flow freely through us again and to truly see all our blessings.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
