Most of my friends do wordless Wednesday ....but this day for me is one of the most exciting days for me.Too much goes on to stay wordless haha. I get my mid week Jesus in youth church and I feel it makes a HUGE difference in my attitude and week.I just love Wednesdays!!! Who would have known hump day would be one of my fave's.This morning I read the following scripture following an email devotional i get and it made me think..a lot!
1 Peter 1:3-9 (The Message)
A New Life
3-5What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we've been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you'll have it all—life healed and whole.
6-7I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it's your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.
8-9You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don't see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you'll get what you're looking forward to: total salvation.
Makes me so think how spoiled and rotten I am . haha Seriously. My father is soooo good to me, that when I dont get what I want I throw a mental fit and sit and ponder when my next gift is coming. What about focusing on the gifts he has given me, my family, my babies, my husband, my home, my health, my life!!!! Oh what an amazing God I serve. If you are going through something today and just waiting for that answer from God, know this...he loves you , he is madly in love with you, so in love he gave his one and only son for you. That gift should overpass any other that you are hoping and wishing for. His love should be sufficient. If you are anything like me , you will sometimes fall back into your humanly way of thinking. You want what you want and you want it now. My husband is currently waiting for a phonecall on a job, and I think I'm more anxious than him haha . However I must trust that the lord ALWAYS opens the right doors and closes the wrongs ones when you ask. So for today I will be pleased with his love!!!!!!
