Some Days

There are days. Lots & lots of days. Some good some not so good. I remind myself continually of all the blessings in my life but things happen & it throws me off course. A cough that won’t go away. The pain my sweetheart deals with daily. My mommy who does not remember much. The taxman … Caesar is greedy but, I’ll give to Caesar what is Caesar’s.

All these things happen seemingly at once but that’s not true. The cough is temporary, taxes will be paid. It’s just so much.

“Together is a really good word. Together is what we need when we hit tough patches in life. Making decisions when life is making you cry shouldn’t be done alone.” The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst. 

I remember that when Dick holds me or touches me. I remember that when I reach out in prayer. I remember that as one of my girls texts or calls me. I’m blessed.

Mark 12:17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” And they were amazed at him. 

I am amazed. I will give Caesar money. I will pay their debt. A debt that is based on my sweetheart’s disability. It’s already so hard on him but he’s busy making sure I’m okay. I’m so blessed.

John 14:26-28 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

I stand on this. Stand on God’s Word.

I’m in a funk. Being God’s girl doesn’t remove me from the things of life. I still struggle sometimes, I still want to say it’s not fair. What it does is give me the knowledge that this is not meant to harm me. Good will come from this. I will grow because of this. My faith will see me through because I KNOW that I KNOW GOD LOVES ME!  The enemy has no foothold on my life. He can try and try and I will still give praise to my Heavenly Father. I will still choose to follow my Savior. I am a child of God, I am His chosen daughter.

Romans 8:31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

I. Am. Free.

I. Am. Victorious.

I. Am. A. Chosen. Child. Of. God!
