Today is a new day! And God's mercy is brand new for me today. He is so good to me and to my family. And sometimes I forget or put that to the side as I go through my day. But I know that I could not do one single thing without Him in my life. NOTHING. NO THING. I have been kind of down for about a month or so and FINALLY realized that I have been very foolish. What do I have to be down about? Nothing. He provides all that I need every day and every moment. I have a beautiful family, wonderful children, a nice home, etc. I should never be down. But satan has a way of getting at you with those little and small things that happen on a daily basis. That is his way, you know. To peck away at you with the little things until you see them as big things and it snowballs from there until you think you will never get over that darn snowball or hill or mountain you have made out of it. But God, in His infinite wisdom and love, melts that snowball, razes that hill or mountain and makes the crooked path straight and the rough places smooth so that you can go on that path He has made for you and go on with the plan He has for you. A plan that is for your good and not to harm you. How awesome is that? We really don't need to struggle all the time. We just need to cast all those cares upon Him because He cares for us and He will gladly take care of all those little things. Someone told me once that if I took care of what God told me to do, then God would handle all the rest. And so He does. And I am trying to do what He tells me. Sometimes I am stubborn and want to do it all by myself. But He gently reminds me(sometimes not so gently cause I need to pay more attention!) that He is in control and to let him take care of it. But when I do what He says to do, then it all works out just perfectly as is His will. Giod bless all of you who may read this.
