Standing Up

Yesterday was a bummer! But as my dear cousin pointed out, God is in control. I know that He will take care of us and I can stop stressing and remember that I can always depend on him. It made me start to think about my many blessings. We still have a roof over our head, for the time being, anyway. We still are paying our bills. We still have food in the house. We still have jobs. What more do we really need! There are so many other people in this world that have much less than I do and they still have joy in their lives. I need to stand up, stop stressing, wash the tears from my eyes, put my big girl panties on and live my life joyfully and thankfully in God's love.

Isaiah 40:28-31
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Thanks Sue for reminding me.
