You know what did happen? My mind, if only for a minute, was taken off of me and focused on Him. Where I went wrong was in ignoring my blessings. Even after I listed the great (big and small) things the Lord had done for me, I was selfish enough to walk away from the list allowing my mood to override my Savior's goodness and sovereignty.
Common practice, right? I'm ashamed it is for me. The temptation now is too label myself "failure" and let the list making slide. Good thing I'm feeling a little stronger emotionally today.
So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Galations 5:16).
I have so much to learn- so many areas to mature in. Getting over myself and living according to the Spirit is a big one.
Anywho, I'm rambling. Here is a new list for new day.
1) A love of a Savior that leaves me reeling with amazement.
2) Mornings- when everything seems new.
3) Hallmark Christmas movies- the cheesy the better! ;)
4) Orange, red, and yellow leaves.
5) Grace, indeed.
Love you guys oodles!
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him" (Lamentations 3:22-24)
In His Name,
