Isn’t it funny how your attitude can change from one day to another?
The other day I wrote this overwhelmed and whining post. My life hasn’t changed since then. In fact, our van broke down on us again today. It’s sitting out on the drive way leaking fluid. It is the grace of God that pushed that vehicle all the way home so that I wasn’t broken down on a two lane highway with all three children and no phone.
But somehow it doesn’t matter. I know we’ll be taken care of. He’s never let us drift out in this troubling world alone and He never will. It’s never His will when things go wrong. And He never “lets it happen” for any reason. He is a God of love and grace. He isn’t a God of hate and anger and bitterness. He never turns His back on His people.
It’s we who give in to the bad around us. It’s we who don’t rely on Him, trust Him and use the authority He has given us on this earth. I know this. I’ve known this. I’ve always known it but it’s hard to see it when you’re in the muck and the mire sometimes.
God is a good God.
And Jesus is my precious Savior – friend – Daddy.
The Holy Spirit is my guide.
I know that while we stand in the midst of crud right now, we will not stand here long. And while we’re here… we’ll be holding on to Him and His truths.
Oh how I love Him.
Oh yes, how I do.
And how He loves me!
