I decided to begin a blog if not for anyone else but me. Let me tell you why. A very precious friend of mine went to be with Jesus this past week and at her funeral, portions of her blog were read. It made me realize that if anything were to ever happen to me, I would want others to know my heart too. I would want those that I love and care about to see a glimpse into my soul. Her passing has effected me more than I ever imagined. I truly loved her and admired her. She experienced pain in her life that I have never had to and pray never will. Through it all she praised God and welcomed the pain because it made her realize the sovereignty of God. Her situation reminded me much of Job and how everything he loved was taken away. He never cursed God. I think of myself and how much work I need to do on ME! Though I do not curse God, my complaints are just as well a curse! I complain because I "don't have enough" or "because what I have isn't sufficient" when the truth is, God has provided what I NEED! Everyday I have what I need. I don't need anymore than what I am given. It's time I turn my complaints into praise! God rains down manna from Heaven daily for me and I so often over look His provisions. What a mighty God I serve!
