Saturday's reflexions on a Monday

I wrote this saturday morning and I thought I would share with you.

" While I am here, sitting outside in my in law's house, under the sun of a beautiful saturday, seeing my girls playing while I read my Bible, I am reminded once again of God's blessings.

I have so much to be thankful for; but it is so easy to gorget when things are not going the way you would like them to.

Sure, we are still waiting on God's direction for us and waiting for a job for Matthew, but God is taking care of us.

Sure, things have been crazy the last few months with the move and all the changes, but I see my girls happy, healthy, sweet as always, well behaved and soft to spiritual things.

God tells us that if we follow Him, He will never leave us, not forsake us. Sometimes God's will is not clear to us, especially if we are in that "waiting" time; but His promises to us are still true. He doesn't leave us, not forsake us, no matter the way it looks.

Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content"

Now, if I can only remember this lesson learned every day! ;)

I think the key to what you wrote is the last few words: every day. Every day we need to remind ourselves of what God has done for us, and of the fact that He is in control. Sometimes I need to remind myself every hour. Or minute. Or ... you get the idea. : )

The waiting period is really the trying period, huh? How much comfort we can get just from knowing that He is there. Keep strong...in HIM.

What a great lesson! I'm sure this waiting time is hard but I know He is preparing your family for something spectacular! These lessons are part of the journey!
