So much for my posting twice a week – excuse or reason – the week just got away from me. Between work and stressors, I simply forgot to post on Wednesday – and I already had a great post ready. Probably no one missed it but me, just annoys me when I’m disorganized! Oh well, it will still be sitting there ready.
I’ve worked all this week and fought with insurance companies – and that’s a whole other post.
My scripture this morning was definitely speaking to me. James 1:2-3, “Count it all Joy, when you have many kinds of trouble. Because these troubles test your faith and will give you patience.”
I don’t know about the patience (I’ve never had much of that), but I do know that even small trouble/annoyances can test your faith!
Another favorite is 2 Kings 6:16 “The army that fights for us is greater than the army that fights against us.” I have to remind myself of that every day.
I needed both of those.
And now it’s Sunday – and now I’m ready for My youngest son to visit. Asher and his lovely wife Wendy are on their way here from the far, far and cold north – Iowa. Won’t be nearly as long a visit as I would like – they rarely are, but it’s a visit and I’m going to make the most of it.
I sure needs to read this today. I saw it a few days ago but didn’t read it. I guess the Lord knew when I would truly need it. Thank you.
I guess we all need that occasionally – glad it hit when you needed it. Hope things are going a bit better – you are in my prayers.
Ooh, “far, far and cold Iowa” is sounding pretty good right now! It’s been so hot and disgustingly humid here the past couple days. I’d like to be in a cool cool forest with my feet in an ice cold stream and the leaves rustling in the breeze overhead.
But instead I’m at my desk and for some reason the ac is not kicking on.
Does your blog not have a scheduling feature, so once you write a post you can set it to go live when you want?
Hope you’re enjoying your visit with you son and daughter-in-law.
I did enjoy it – they left early this morning. It’s been blessedly cool here for the last few days. Was cooler than in Iowa 🙂 Funny, I told them they brought cool weather with them. I’m supposed to have the scheduling feature on the blog. But it didn’t work the last time I tried it. It was supposed to post on Sunday of last week, I checked on Monday and it hadn’t done it’s job. I would be such a happy camper if I could get that to work – I’ll have to check on it – it was… Read more »
