As I pulled the cushions from the living room sofa I saw a debit card that looked a lot like the one I LOST LAST YEAR. It was the one I lost last year. Me!
My face felt hot with embarrassment.
It's so easy to forget our own shortcomings and "lecture" others on theirs. My lesson today (and consequently yours) is to remember to bear compassion, mercy and kindness when folks blunder. We know to do it, but often forget, especially when the "folks" are our kids.
The truth of the matter is we are often very guilty of many of the same sins in which we judge. The years may have dulled our memories or we just didn't get caught with the consequences. As my husband says there are two types of folks - the caught and the uncaught. Often our "uncaughtness" makes us forgetful.
Either way, grace and mercy are always the best responses. It is then we look the most like our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen?
I owe my boy an apology.

Ok, so I began my experience in Genesis chapters one thru three. Initially I expected boredom to read such familiar chapters. But, the Holy Spirit impressed on me how God, in all His power and wisdom, orders everything so perfectly. I was reminded of His endless power, His matchless wisdom and His awesome greatness.
That evening my mom had a challenge at her home and I was reminded (again) of God's perfect control and sovereignty that I had read about earlier.
If He can order the earth and space, He can certainly take care of my most beloved family member. Praise God for His Word. Please share...what does Genesis 1-3 say to you?
Pray for me on this journey. Better yet, care to join me?

This is easier said than done.
When we love people, we want to “fix” things for them. We want them happy, healthy and whole at all times. But, God is at work in their lives and has plans we can never understand in our finite existence. His ways are so much higher than ours and we must trust that His plan for them is light-years better than our hopes for them. So, we cast our cares, our worries and our doubts on the Lord knowing He has everything under control regardless of how things appear. We surrender confident in the fact that He is working behind the scenes to bring victory for those who trust in His name.
Again, easier said than done.
It is not always a “one and done” situation. Like forgiveness, surrendering our troubles can be a process. Want to know why? I’ll tell you, because in the process of our surrender, we have a nasty habit of re-claiming situations and carrying the load yet again. Then we have to cast them all over again.
So, I resolve right now to trust God with the people I love and care about. I trust Him to restore all that the enemy has stolen from them. I trust Him to deliver them from all their troubles and heal them of all their diseases. I trust Him to bring comfort by way of the Holy Spirit for those who are grieving and resources for those who are in need. I trust Him to give me the strength to change my “little” attitude and replace my anger with joy and my worry with peace.
GodsyGirl, resolve with me this very moment to trade your heavy burdens for His light ones. Amen? So be it!
