It's been a train wreck at my house for the last several weeks. I am really feeling that good old saying "when it rains it pours". If it is not one thing it is another. Yesterday I finally just had to laugh. I am trying to keep rememebring this verse from 1st Corinthians
"There hath no temptation taken you but such is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1st Corinthians 10:13 KIV
Yesterday I just had enough. I wanted to scream and cry. I guess almost losing your life to a silent killer was not good enough. The punches just keep going. I went to the dentist for my six month check up and I found out that I have several cavities. Well the punches did not end there. Yesterday my daughter was sent home sick from school yesterday.
God is good and with everything that is going south in my life, I just need to be thankful.
1) I need to be thankful that two weeks ago that I heard the Carbon Monoxide dectetors going off in our home. For that, my family is alive today.
2) I am blessed that it only took several hundred dollars to fix out furnance and that we were not out thousands to buy a new one.
3) I am thankful for very good dental insurance.
4) I need to be thankful that my daughter will be well with just some medicine.
So life can throw whatever it has to offer to us right now. Because I am going to give it all to the Lord and I am just going to be thankful.
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 KJV
