My dear readers, I am so sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve written. My site was down for about 6 weeks and then I was on the road for 2 1/2 weeks. This week, I’m home but have a lot of work to do in between catching up on rest.
It amazes me how easy it can be to “forget” the goodness of God. We get frustrated with the Israelites as they grumble and complain whenever things don’t go their way and yet we are often like that as well. I know, for myself, I often have to consciously remind myself of God’s goodness. Not that I ever really lose sight of that but I sometimes find myself focusing more on the negative instead of praising Him in all circumstances like I should. I have been blessed beyond measure and there is no excuse for self-pity and negativity.
I’m thankful for Brothers and Sisters who encourage me and bear with me when I am down, but I don’t want being “down” to define me. If I let discouragement define my life, then Satan begins to win and that discouragement will quickly become depression, which can be difficult to break out of. Therefore, I choose to say that God is good regardless of what is going on in my life. He is worthy of my praise. His plan is perfect whether I see it right now or not.
Dear Brothers and Sisters, life is short. Don’t waste it focused on yourself. Look up. Thank Him for sunshine. Thank Him for life. Praise Him for every bit of strength you have.
He didn’t promise my cross would not be heavy,But He did say that He my load would bear,He didn’t tell me He’d grant my hopes and wishes,But He did say He’d hear my earnest prayer. ~Dottie Rambo
