So sometimes it is hard to bare all on the blog because you never know what people will think, but as I reflect, is that what God really wants from us. I don't. I think He wants us to be real so that His grace can shine through our imperfections and our screw ups. With that said I will admit that life is doing me in. I can't figure out if its the work thing, the three kid thing, the never ending pile of laundry, or the never ending cleaning. It just might be all of the above, but I know that when things tend to become overwhelming I have to rely on others and rely on the promises of God to come through. One of my favorite scriptures came blaring through recently and that is Psalm 27. Yes the whole chapter. Here are some juicy pieces. " Hear my voice when I call o Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. My hearts says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face Lord I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Teach me your way o Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence. (Here is the kicker) I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord: be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
Lord, help me to know how to wait. Let me see your goodness every day that I live. Help me to see through the trials that seem to follow and lead my path. I want to know you more and love you more. Help me to bring honor to your name when I am in the hard spots and when I don't feel like it. I pray that I can honor you by raising Godly men and showing them how to love each other. Thank you for never giving up on me. Amen
By the way the Psalms are full of David's heart cry to God. I love it because he was real with God. He was honest with how he felt and its nice to know that I am not the only one who feels the way I do at times.
