Isn't it funny how as soon as you make a statement about being obedient to God, Satan is right there to try and trip you up. My last post was Monday and I had committed to showing kindness. Well that lasted until Thursday!! I am still committed to it, but I've got to be "prayed up" a lot more, I realize that.
I also need to focus on my relationship with Jesus and not my relationship with Don or anyone else for that matter. I need to focus on Jesus and not on getting well physically. As much I'd like to be well and have my marriage restored, the one thing I know I can count on is the love of the Lord. And I need something right now that I can count on .
God has been so good to me this past week. In so many ways. Showing me many blessings. When I saw the attorney he was absolutely wonderful but then told me it probably wouldn't be cost effective to use him because it would be $10-15,000!! So I came home and within the hour he called me back personally and said "you really need help, we want to help you and we'll figure it out". That was GOD!! I will still have to pay but for now he's taking me on as his client and we'll figure it out eventually.
I've met many new "friends" out here in bloggyland that have blessed me beyond measure. God is knitting together a community of believers to help carry each other's burdens. When I cannot pray, I know that one of you is praying for me. It is a privilege to be praying for many of you as well.
Of course, right now the biggest blessing is being a mom to my kids. They are amazing! My son is getting ready to go on a mission trip to Mexico this summer to build homes for families who have never had one. It will be so good for him to get away, focus on others and grow so much closer to God. My daughter is a constant joy. (did I say constant? well, it's almost Mother's Day, I'm allowed a bit of exaggeration) But she is a joy. They are so good to me and they really love the Lord.
And then my own mom...what a source of strength, encouragement and an example of someone sold out for Christ. I couldn't do life without her right now. She is my rock and my soft place at the same time. Happy Mother's Day, mom! (she doesn't read this, I'm just sayin')
So I commit again to show kindness. To put on the full armour of God, knowing it is only in His strength that I can fight against the enemy. I will count my blessings and not focus on the loss.
For now I focus on the blessing of each one of you. Thank YOU!!
