Happy Friday PEOPLE!! I hope your day is going well thus far. I am having a lovely day.
OKay. That was a lie. My day isn’t so bad that I can’t sit here and type with a smile though. That smile comes from the knowledge that my God is greater than everything…. Greater than my circumstances. Greater than the illnesses my husband and mother-in-law are struggling with. Greater than the anger I have because there is little to nothing I can do about said illnesses. Greater. He’s just GREATER!
He’s Greater than the devil! So much so that we have already won the war against him! The pastor said (a couple of Sundays ago), WE FIGHT THROUGH VICTORY (IN VICTORY), NOT for VICTORY! (1 Corinthians 15:57; Psalm 44:7; Proverbs 21:31; 1 John 5:4, NIV) So many days I forget that it’s the devil who is fighting a losing battle; not me. Today was almost one of those days. I am so tired of my husband being grumpy with me because he doesn’t feel well and won’t go to the doctor before his specialist appointment on Monday. But there is nothing I can do to make him seek help.
I wonder if that is how God feels sometimes? Exasperated because He won’t make us choose help and we won’t do it for ourselves. That’s how I feel. Exasperated. Like sheesh. I’m done. But then I remember that my God is greater than this and HE knows all things and I can just give it to him!
Anyway. The girls and I heard the following song at the First Christian Church one of the first times we ever went there. It was so beautiful and I had no idea where it came from, but you know me…. I googled the lyrics until I found it and the whole album is one of my favorites (in fact, I have another one to share with you that brings tears to my eyes, but I’ll save it for another day :))… I hope it encourages each of you as it has me!
