I'm sure most of you are better at this than I am but I tend to get "stuck" in my circumstances...
I need to have bible verses around my house, on my phone and of course reading my bible
to keep me from sitting in the mud of life
we all have mud in our lives...
I will be the first to admit that I worry about my Madeline
(as I do for all my children yikes)
I'm always "working" on getting through the day
waiting for the other shoe to drop that many days never drops....
but I have myself in a mental place to expect that drop
therefore I expend A LOT of energy waiting for the unknown
otherwise known as my own man made mud
Yesterday I had a lightbulb moment while praying for Madeline
"God has a plan for Madeline, He placed her exactly where he wants her, He is in charge"
why do I as her mother think I am so powerful to mess her up or not make the correct decision?
so often my thoughts are my mud
"Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."
In my mud,
I have to remember that the Lord's purpose prevails in all things
He has a purpose for each one of us which obviously includes my child
(keep losing sight of that!!)
2 Timothy 1:9
"He has saved us and called us to a holy life-not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace."
I'm washing off my mud for the day thankful to rest in his grace yet again:)
