What A Beautiful Mornin'

This is on the coast about an hour and half away, what a beautiful sunrise!

I had to look at a calendar this morning to make sure... yup it's only March. I thought for sure it was June, because that's what it looks like outside this morning, and with a high of 80 degrees, it's going to feel like June today!

How much easier it is to rejoice and be glad in the day when it is sunny and warm! I will not be taking this for granted, I believe this was God's way of showing me love today.

Until next time, may the Lord keep you and show you His love for you everyday!

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but I came out the other side

I have a praise...

This morning I was really struggling, or as Mackenzie put it "Mommy, you woke up on the wrong side of the bed."

I did... I was cranky, upset, discouraged, and just mad. After driving Mackenzie to school, I began to explain to God that I was mad at Mackenzie's school and our educational system, I was upset that Adam has had to work so many hours, I was cranky because I was letting this all get to me.

As I was confessing I was reminded that our greatest battles are not of flesh and blood, and the struggles I was facing this morning were schemes the enemy was plotting. I began to weep, and praise God that He has claimed victory over my life, He was already won this battle, that I am His beloved and He is mine. As I began to speak these things out loud, I felt God's amazing peace fall upon me and just like a flood He let His mercy rain on me.

I continued to praise God for all that He has done for me and all that He is doing in me, and all that He is going to do. In a matter of less than 10 minutes of driving the song by Aaron Shust "My Savior, My God" came on twice, the line "My Savior is always there for me" struck me to the core, almost like God was telling me Himself "I am always there for you." Seriously, why else would it have come on twice in such a short period of time.

The thought crossed my mind later today, how amazing that God is so truly in love me that He reached down this morning to remind me that He is ALWAYS there for me, that He will never leave me of forsake me.

Jesus I am so in love with you.

Until next time may the Lord keep you and show you His love for you everyday.
