God's great blessings

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Today was good to be in church again. The last few weeks, I've been out either because I was not well, son not well, or JD preaching at a Lutheran church.

God is so good. I have been so blessed in the last few months with good health, vehicles, place to live, understanding of deeper truths, support of others, strong women's group, and lack of snow! lol The changes that have happened on the inside have shown on the outside.

With all the events happening in the last few months, I haven't "lost it" but once. That was right before Christmas. I didn't know at the beginning of December where I would be living so I handled that week poorly. I lost my temper a couple times, trying to figure out if we'd find somewhere to live in time (which now is a duh moment). I wanted to decorate for Christmas, but didn't feel like I could not knowing.

I will say this being the 2nd time of not knowing about housing, this go-round was MUCH easier! Even though I should have known and not panicked, but I still did emoticon

Each new test/temptation, I am handling it calmer and calmer. I believe as God changes the inside, it will begin to reflect on the outside as well. God takes my stress, my body will produce less cortisone and will begin to keep the weight off.

I'm pleased to be so blessed! Nothing in this world compares to the mercies, love, and affection of my Lord, Jesus Christ.

    We've been homeless 4&1/2 years since my stroke, but God has not failed us in guarding our hearts and mind in Christ Jesus as we learn to be obedient to his promise in Phlp4. We are learning discipleship every day, even as folks living under the poverty_level in the USofA. We're both broken spiritually, physically, and financially... But we thrive in him! Thanks be to God.
    Shalom to you and yours, and all whose shadow falls across the threshold of your tent as you live conforming to his image... the One who pitched his tent with us (see Jn1. )
