Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Sing A Song On Saturday

It seems just about every Saturday Morning I get up.. and listen to music.. since its a day that I don't normally have to rush around. This morning I was reflecting back on the week.. thinking it was better than last week.. but STILL a hard week...All week long I'm thinking of our troubles and each time I'm thinking or praying about our situation.. the phrase "Lay it at the feet of Jesus" has popped in my head...

Cause seriously.. there is nothing I can do to fix this problem TODAY! I have to wait and be patient..and leave it to our God...

Some may read this and say "Wait.. you're a Christian.. nothing is suppose to be going wrong.. why isn't YOUR 'God' fixing this... "... I hear this a lot.. Well.. it couldn't be more opposite from the truth.. Being a Christian has made me MORE aware that life isn't going to be handed to me on a silver platter.. and I'm DEFINITELY not going to get my own way. ( doesn't mean I still don't act like a brat from time to time)..

Joshua 1:5 says .. "I will never leave you nor forsake you"

Isaiah 46:4 says..." Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you;I will sustain you and I will rescue you."

So no matter what trial God promises me that it may not be easy.. I might not like the outcome... but he is NEVER going to be away from my side.. Now.. for myself..I have to take the time to place all this at his feet.. and let him help me carry all this sadness..weariness.. and defeat...

This song is a great reminder...What are you worried about? Is anything making you sad lately?

I am bad for taking my cares to the Lord but then grabbing them back when the crunch is on. Learning to leave them with Him is what I need to get a handle on!

Thanks for the encouragement!

You know I am praying for you. And you know the word says in Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Hang in there God will arrive just in time.

What a great reminder. No, God doesn't make our lives problemless, instead He helps us through them and teaches us! And, of course, He doesn't give us more than we can handle.

Oh yeah, I feel ya. I call it "faith with a deadline" which is no faith at all! But I practice it anyway...laying it at the cross then scurrying over there, stuffing it back in the heavy backback, and shuffling off in the wrong direction. I am a glutton.
Praying for your tough times. We are having some trials as well. Life is never dull but never offers perfect peace either. I long for calm waters more often!

I already commented but here I am again. Just wanted to say again, thank you for this post. I am going through some of the hardest things I have faced in a long time, and its a struggle to have faith. I think my attitude has suffered, and its time to get back on track. baby steps.....
