Catching Up Part 3 – August 17 -August 21
Things are starting to look a little better. We have a short window where we can actually pretend we have a life, however we must still be careful until we see what will happen two weeks from now. I am hoping and praying that everything will be back in order by then so we can do away with all of this stress and get back to living normally.
August 17, 2017 – Challenges
We all face many challenges in our lives. Some of them spiritual, some financial and some are emotional. How we handle them will have a lot do with the outcome, but in every challenge there are lessons to be learned. Today I am thankful that the Lord directs me on working through these challenges and learning the right lessons from them.
August 18, 2017 – Logic
I know for a fact that there were many times, when I was younger, that I made rash decisions. Some of them turned into catastrophes and even dangerous situations. Over the years I have learned to use logic when there are big decisions to be made. Today I am thankful that the Lord has impressed on me to be logical about the decisions in my life.
August 19, 2017 – Bricks
There are times in our lives when we feel like we are walking around with a load of bricks on our shoulders. We often feel so weighed down by them that it makes us not only emotionally and spiritually sick but physically as well. Today I am thankful when the Lord knocks those bricks off my shoulders.
August 20, 2017 – Stress
They have proven over the years that stress has a physical effect on your body, not just your mind. It can effect your heart and lungs, it can cause you to gain or lose weight, and it can make your body ache like it has never ached before. Today I am thankful that the Lord is directing me to ways that relieve a lot of this stress.
August 21, 2017 – Answered Prayers
I have heard people complain that their prayers are not answered, but what we seem to forget quite often is that God doesn’t always answer our prayers the way that we want. In stepping back and looking at some of the prayers I have sent up, I see where they were answered better than I had chosen they would be. Today I am glad that God doesn’t always answer prayers the way that I would choose.
