30 April – Ride with me

come ride with me

Today I was horse riding which is one of my weekly “feed my happy” times. Tahnee is my ride at the moment and as is often the case, God uses those things around me and in my world to share  life lessons with me.

Today I got a lesson through my horse Tahnee, who can at times be a little bit of a challenge as she has a tendency to kick at any horse who gets even a little close to her. When she was younger she was picked on by the other horses and developed a defensive attitude as a result. Her defense is to put her ears back, kick, squeal and have a bit of a hissy fit.

Today was one of those days where one of the other horses very innocently put his head over the fence right next to where I was tacking Tahnee up. Next minute Tahnee starts kicking, squealing and making a ruckus in protest, while the other horse stood back wondering what all the fuss was about. He’d just come over to say hello.

How similar we can be at times to Tahnee. Perhaps we’ve been hurt or felt victimised or disappointed in the past. Maybe things have happened in our childhood or adolescence and we still carry the wounds and scars which we haven’t allowed God or anyone else to touch upon so that we can recover and receive healing from them. As a result when something or someone looks like getting too close, or behaves or sounds even slightly like our previous experiences we can end up freaking out and behaving much like Tahnee. This defensive reaction can rise up in us regardless of the person or situation and their intentions towards us.

Instead of assessing and processing the person or circumstance for what it is, we revert back and are triggered to respond defensively and with fear and distrust, to protect ourselves. Our triggers have been hit and we kick, scream or pull away or withdraw to avoid being hurt or let down at all costs.

However God doesn’t want this defensive way of life to be who we are.  He knows it will cause us to miss out; un-dealt with experiences, trauma and hurts if left can and do warp our true personality and who God created us to be.

Tahnee is actually, when feeling safe and secure, a very sweet horse and when I let her know everything’s fine and take control she doesn’t react nearly as much. She even senses if I am unsteady or unsure and will hold back to allow me time to gather myself so as not to fall. Her true nature is gentle and giving. At first I didn’t particularly like her, but she and I are fast becoming friends. I’m understanding that Tahnee, just like many of us, wasn’t born with a defensive nature, it was her experiences and fears that made her wary of other horses, and just like us, when she feels loved and secure is great to ride with and be around.

Today I felt the Lord wants to encourage us that no matter what we’ve been through; He is there and looking after us. I go out of my way to protect Tahnee from being hurt as I ride her, and our loving heavenly Father, our Papa protects us too. Just as it’s easy to direct and look after Tahnee when she listens, its far easier for God to guide, direct and protect us when we listen to him. Yet unlike a horse He wants to be able to simply whisper and guide us with a gentle look and directive hand rather than having to make us feel controlled like a horse with a bit and bridle.

Today I encourage you to allow Him into every part of your life in a greater way, including any hurts and fears from the past. You can trust Him to defend and protect you, so that you no longer have to live wary of relationships, new circumstances, and always on the defensive.

Follow the directives in His Word, (they’re there to help us), and listen out everyday for His gentle whisper, so that just like Tahnee and I, you’ll be able to ride along with Him into all that you were created to be and do.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.God cares for us.” (Isaiah 41:10)

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27 NIV)

Prayer: Lord thank you that you have my life in your capable hands. Please help me to stop living on the defensive and to trust you more to guide and protect me from harm. I choose to trust you today so I can really enjoy the ride. In Jesus name amen.

29 April – Seize the day

seize the day.png

Rather than having New Year’s resolutions, which often by this time of the year have dropped by the wayside, perhaps a better mindset would be to have a resolution to seize the day and to make that our life resolution and not just our New Year’s resolution.

To seize the day means we know what our life is about so we can then go out into each day taking hold of the opportunities God puts before us, making the most of every moment of every day.

When we live with this perspective and focus to seize the day, it motivates us and at times even catapults us into being who God has called us to be. God doesn’t want us to live lives that are hesitant, fearful, or full of doubt and unbelief. God wants us to soar like eagles, to stand on the heights, to do mighty exploits for Him and to live our lives in such a way that people look and say, “they are the ones that the Lord has blessed.” It does us no good to shrink back or become less than who we were created to be, and it doesn’t help or encourage anyone else either.

Seizing the day is living with purpose, focus and a hope for the future. The consequence of living like that is we are far more likely to remain on the path God has set for us and to not get distracted, allow ourselves to be burdened with attitudes, sin, and negative habits which can hamper or lead us astray.  It is those people with no vision and reason to seize the day that most often wander aimlessly through life, not the one’s who know what and who they are in God.

Today I encourage you to seek and enquire of God what your life resolution is. If you have a heartbeat God has a plan and purpose for your life, and amazing things for you to experience in Him. Don’t sit back being lazy, fearful or complacent with the life you have been given, but instead seize the day and endeavour to run your race well. Run into all that God has called you to be and do, seizing hold of God’s gift of each and every day.

“So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” (Ephesians 5:15-16)

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1)

Prayer: Lord thankyou for this day and for the life you have planned for me. Please help me to seize the day and every opportunity you place before me. I ask that you help me to run with the vision and dreams you have placed in my heart today. In Jesus name Amen.

28 April – Overcoming

I-Can-Do-All-Things-Thru-God3

Many say that more words have been written about Abraham Lincoln than any other person in history except Jesus Christ. Yet interestingly Abraham Lincoln was almost totally a self-educated man. He was born in a one-room log cabin in Kentucky and his family struggled with hardship and poverty for most of his childhood. It is reported that he attended formal schooling for less than twelve months of his life. However Lincoln continued to learn on his own from life experiences, reading and reciting what he had read or heard from others. As a young man he was often seen walking to and from work with an open book, barely looking where he was going. Increasingly law books filled his reading list and by 1836, entirely through self-study, Lincoln passed the bar exam allowing him to practice law in Illinois.

In 1832 at 23 years of age Lincoln began his career in politics, which culminated in him being elected president of the United States in1860.

However as a man and politician Abraham Lincoln had his fair share of flaws. He held political beliefs, which perhaps many  would struggle with today; he battled with depression, and never felt comfortable in the company of woman. “Yet most historians recognise that Lincoln, as a man did not fail because of his flaws. Lincoln as a man raised himself from a dirt-floor cabin to the White House and was responsible for guiding his country through one of its most difficult periods in it’s history, as he led the country and its citizens to the abolition of slavery.” (David P Press)

When life looks difficult and the road ahead seems unclear its people like Abraham Lincoln that can encourage and inspire us to keep going. He was born into disadvantage, suffered loss and tragedy and did not have the benefit of an education that many today take for granted. Yet regardless of these difficulties he chose to always be learning, exploring, discovering, listening and asking questions to better himself and to change his lot in life.

Too often it seems we can make excuses for failing to rise above our circumstances, shortcomings, flaws and failings. Perhaps therefore the questions we must ask ourselves are, “are these things an excuse for not being all that God has created us to be? Are these flaws and struggles a reason to give up and to settle for less than we should in life? Or should we not take what we have already, honour and thank God for it, and then push onwards and upwards?

God is no respecter of persons; what He helps and encourages one man or woman to do, He will do for another. For what it is that God takes notice of is faith and belief. He knows when we activate these things in our lives our limits come off and all things become possible. (Acts 10:34)

Let’s take a leaf out of Abraham Lincoln’s book and make a decision to get up and move forward; to determine to continue to learn and discover about those things we don’t know; to be curious, to ask questions and continually be listening and growing. If others can rise and succeed in the face of adversity, then why can’t we? Especially when we know that God is with us and desires for us to prosper in all that we do. (Deuteronomy 30:9)

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”(Romans 8:28)

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1)

Prayer: Lord please help me to recognise that I am far more capable than I often realise, and that with your help I can do all things. Help me to remember that what once may have been a barrier, will with you by my side be something I can overcome. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

27 April – Lifes tests

stand steadfast.jpg

Whether we like it or not we all face tests in life. Tests of how much we know, tests of our character and whether we will hold to our convictions or not, tests of whether we will be trustworthy, people of our word and faithful with what we have been given.

Testing is however something we often shy away from because perhaps we don’t like to be held accountable, think we may fail or are not disciplined enough to run the course we have had set before us.

God knows that life is going to test us but He says in His Word, “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. “(1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV)

Take for example the story of the talents and whether the three different servants would be good stewards of what they had been given. The fearful servant who lacked foresight and faith buried his talent and did nothing to increase or use it and was on the master’s return reprimanded for his cowardly attitude. Whereas the faithful servant who increased and used what they had been given were rewarded with more. A test that one man failed while the others passed. (Matthew 25:14-30)

All through the bible you will find the accounts of people and their tests of whether they will trust, obey God’s commands, and if they will follow God and His ways even when they do not know what is going to happen. We vividly see the consequences of their decisions. David who faced temptation as to whether he would be honest about his shortcomings and sin, and whether he would change his womanising ways or lose out on what God wanted to do through his life. Esther was tested in her courage as she faced the death of herself and her people. Moses was tested in his obedience and trust over and over again as he led the Israelites through the desert.

Sometimes they failed dismally as with David and his sin with Bathsheba, or Moses who struck the rock instead of obeying instructions and speaking to it to bring forth water. Their test was obedience and whether they would follow God’s ways or give in to temptation.

God wants the best for us and He is so gracious when we fall. However there are consequences and we can miss God’s best if we constantly follow our sinful desires over His Word and perfect will. David lost his son and Moses missed out on entering the promised land, yet God’s grace towards them was that He still kept relationship with them and restored their hearts as they turned to Him in repentance.

Today choose God. Life will test you, sometimes you will put yourself in situations you shouldn’t and other times the enemy will try to cause you to stumble. However God is faithful and the quicker we are to turn to Him the sooner we will experience His grace and strength to keep walking into our destiny.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (James 1:2-4 ESV)

“Prove me, O Lord, and try me; test my heart and my mind”. (Psalm 26:2 ESV)

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness”. (2 Timothy 3:16 ESV)

Prayer: Lord please help me to be honest with the situations I am facing and whether or not I have put myself in relationships or places which, just like David I have no business being in and which if left unchecked in my life, will cause me to stumble. Please give me the wisdom and grace to follow your ways and to not fail life’s tests, so that I can fully become all that you have made and purposed me to be. In Jesus Name Amen.

 

 

 

 

26 April – Don’t underestimate God

trust me

To underestimate someone is to underrate, think less of, misread and be wrong about. We can underestimate ourselves, other people, situations and we can underestimate God.

Moses a famous leader in history and the bible was responsible for leading several million people out of captivity in Egypt to the land God had promised them. The Israelites story is known because God did the impossible to fulfil his promises to them.

However they are also known for their repeated complaining and underestimation of God. Even when God parted the waters of the Red sea so that they could all walk through on dry land, brought water forth from the rock to quench their thirst in the desert, provided manna from heaven to feed them, and caused their clothes to not wear out, they still underrated and thought less of God’s love and supernatural ability to care for them than they should have. When the people grew tired of eating the bread like manna God had provided for them in the middle of the desert, they started complaining and started to talk about how much better it was back in Egypt because they wanted to eat some meat.

So Moses began to try and figure out how he was going to feed all the people. He asked God, “Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to provide enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered for them to provide enough for them?” (Numbers 11:22) Moses believed it could not be done. Even though he had seen God do amazing awe inspiring things He did not believe it could be done. Yet God replied “ I will give you meat and you shall eat it..for a whole month you shall eat it.” For has the Lord’s arm been shortened? Now you shall see whether what I say will happen or not.” (Numbers 11:20;23) The result of God’s provision for meat was flocks of Quail flying into the camp in the middle of nowhere to provide their meat for 30 days. So much meat in fact that the Israelites grew tired of eating it.

The message God sent was,” Stop underestimating me and what I can do”, and He still says it to us today.  Far too often when we have a need in our life or a desire in our heart, we try to figure out how we can make it happen. We reason just like Moses with our own mind and intellect how it is going to happen or how God is going to get something to us. However in doing so we often underestimate God. However God is not limited by our reasoning, nor is He  dependant on anything or anyone to fulfil His word and His promises. What He says, He will do and He can do things anyway He wants!

Whatever your need is today, God wants to be your source and supplier. You don’t have to figure out in your natural mind how God is going to get it to you. All you have to do is put your faith into gear, believe that what God says in His word is true, and position yourself to receive. The rest is up to God!

Today let’s stop reasoning and underestimating God and instead choose to believe that God is able to do what He says He can and then get ready for Him to receive.

“My God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

“Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and) do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams), according to His power that is at work within us.” (Ephesians 3:20 AMP)

Prayer: Lord please forgive me when I underestimate and underrate you, and help me to remember that you have more power in your whisper than all the power in the universe. Help me to lift my expectation, to know and receive the promises in Your Word and to position myself everyday to receive. In Jesus name Amen.

25 April – Today is a gift

today is a gift.jpg

One of the things I’ve come to realise is much of our life is routine, meaning that anything can become stagnant if we allow it to.

You can have an exciting job, but it can become boring or tiresome at times. You may be married or in a relationship with a loving, amazing person but if you don’t nourish that relationship and put something into it, then over time it’s likely to become stagnant.

The bible talks about stirring ourselves up everyday and fanning into flame the gifts that God has given us, so that what we have been blessed or gifted with does not become stale or taken for granted.

2 Tim 1:6 – “ Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Paul was saying “Timothy, don’t let your fire go out. Stay passionate about your life and purpose. Stay enthusiastic about your dreams, and watch how you are thinking and expecting.

Today there will be a spark within you, no matter how small, because you are still alive. Therefore you can do your part and fan that spark into flame.

Charles Capps felt the Lord say to him one day “My people say what they have, rather than having what they say.” Meaning talking about the bad stuff all the time just reinforces it’s negative power in our life. Instead we can start talking like Jesus talks. The devil doesn’t need our help “talking up”  all the evil in the world. There’s enough people doing that already. God wants us to speak and to expect good things like He does, bringing heaven to earth.

Today I encourage you to stop looking at what may be wrong in your life and the world and start being grateful for what’s right!

To have an attitude of: “My dreams may not have come to pass yet; I may have had some obstacles in my path, but I know God is still in control. I know He’s got great things in store for me, so I’m going to get up each day and enjoy and be excited about my life.”

You may not have a perfect job, house, relationships, situation etc, but you can have an attitude of gratitude today, instead of an attitude of obligation.

You don’t HAVE to do anything, you GET to do it. God is the one who has given you breath so why not change it up today and appreciate the fact:

“You don’t have to go work – you get to go to work.

“You don’t have to take care of these kids, they’re a blessing; you get to take care of them”.

“You don’t have to study, you get to study and gain an education”.

“You don’t have to exercise and look after your health; you get to exercise and make good choices.”

“You don’t have to give; you get to give.”

Count your blessings today. Your heart is still beating, you still have breath and you get to be alive today. So stir yourself up; go for a walk or run, hug someone, call a friend for a catch up, do something that makes you glad you are alive today and thank God you get to do any of it!

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance for you serve the Lord Christ.” (Col 3:23)

Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.” (Rom 12:11)

“Also, let Christ’s peace control you. God has called you into this peace by bringing you into one body. Be thankful. Let Christ’s word with all its wisdom and richness live in you. Use psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to teach and instruct yourselves about God’s kindness. Sing to God in your hearts“. (Colossians 3:15-17 God’s Word translation)

Prayer: Thank you Lord that I am alive today. Please help me to focus on the positives in my life, and “fan into flame” my God given gifts, and passion for life. Help me to better understand that I can’t control everything, but I do get to choose to enjoy today. In Jesus Name Amen.

24 April – Feed your happy!

feedyourhappy

This is a repost but it’s a great reminder to feed our inner happy 🙂

I was chatting with our second daughter this week and she mentioned that people often comment on why she is so happy all of the time. She tells them she does still have grumpy times, but that they usually don’t last long because she chooses to “feed happiness”.  For her feeding happiness means that she purposely listens to happy uplifting music, watches happy movies and television, focuses on inspiring people, spends time with Jesus and knowing Him, and surrounds herself with relationships and pursuits that bring her joy.

Feeding happiness however is often in sharp contrast to what surrounds and encompasses most people’s lives. One look at the feeds on social media, the news, movies, entertainment and people’s conversations and you’ll soon discover that many of the world’s influences are not designed to feed happiness, but in fact despair and hopelessness.

Which is exactly why we really do need to take a good hard look at ourselves and determine what we are “feeding” on? Because why do we want to focus on the negatives when there are so many amazing, wonderful people, places and blessings that God has chosen to surround us with everyday. He says that His mercies are new every morning, that He is faithful to His promises and that He will complete that which He has started in us. He declares that with Him we have overcome the world. (Lamentations 3:22; Duet 7:9; Ps 138:8; John 16:33)

Everyday we have a choice as to whether we will look at the negatives or to “feed happiness.” Today I encourage you to “feed your happy” because when you do it will change your life. Not only will your perspective change from fear to hope but in choosing to “feed happiness” you will very quickly become a source of blessing and constant encouragement to everyone you meet.

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” (Philippians 4:8-9 The Message)

Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength! (Nehemiah 8:10)

Prayer: Lord I give you all my worries and concerns today and exchange them for your joy. Help me to feed my happy today in all I listen to, watch, and be a part of. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

23 April – Are you listening?

god speaks

Jack Deere who wrote “Surprised by the voice of God” wrote that there are three voices besides the voice of God that can speak to us. They are:

The voice of our emotions

The voice of darkness/Satan

The voice that comes through the pressure we feel from family, friends and others.

We can easily get into confusion if we listen to these “voices,” rather than seeking to hear God’s voice speaking to us. Sometimes we can even go from person to person and place to place looking for what we want to hear, rather than truly seeking God. There is always someone who will tell you what you want to hear when you look hard enough. We have to watch that our hearts are right and uncluttered with our own motives, issues, un-forgiveness or fears, so that they don’t deceive us into hearing, doing and acting outside of what is God’s best for us.

God speaks in many ways; through the bible, through miracles, supernatural means, natural means, our circumstances, through our experiences, trials, visions, dreams, trances, by impacting our mind with a part of a sentence or just a single word that we may not even understand at the time. He speaks to us by impressions, which often communicate knowledge and by preachers, teachers, prophets, and others. Gods speaking, so it’s just whether we have ears and hearts to hear Him and to listen to what He is saying.

Today I encourage you to ask God to speak to you in whatever way He wants to. He desires to be part of our every day lives and to help, guide and protect us.

Write what you are “hearing” and seeing down. I practice in the little things as well as the more important issues of life. When you choose to actively listen out for God speaking you will suddenly come to realise just how much He has been trying to communicate with you.

God calls and speaks to each one of us whether we know Him already or have never even had a conversation with Him.

The bible says, “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD”. (Jeremiah 29:12-13)

I can guarantee that if you take the time to listen and seek to hear God’s voice you will. Maybe then the question is, “What will you do when you hear Him speak”?

Prayer: Lord please grant me ears to hear and eyes to see the things you want to reveal to me. Forgive me when I have pushed you aside or have listened to other voices rather than yours. I don’t want to do that anymore, so speak Lord for I am listening. In Jesus Name. Amen.

 

22 April – Life is like a box of chocolates

Just listen, trust, and know He works things

Life is like a box of chocolates loaded with surprises. Some parts of life are delightful and some are at times downright disagreeable. The yummy parts of course are easy to swallow, but the unpleasant ones we don’t like so much and are sometimes very hard to stomach.

However it’s in the moments in life that we would rather spit out and forget about that God often uses to shape and determine our depth of character. It’s also when we get to choose to run to Him or turn away from Him. For God never promised He would lead us “around” every trial, but that He would be “with us” through every circumstance of our life, and that He would never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)

When my 24-year-old brother Shaun was killed I was faced with the choice of how that would shape my perspective and view of life. I could let his death create fear and bitterness in me or I could be reminded of how precious every single breath we take is, and that the gift of each day and what I can do and be in it shouldn’t be taken for granted.

What we do in the midst of trials and how it may change us is up to us. We can sit sucking on the bitter moments, reliving them over and over again or we can face them, pain and all, and allow God to work in us.

It’s also in that space we have the opportunity to discover and really learn that, “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28).

I made a decision shortly after my brother’s death to not allow his death to steal from me or to cause me to live in silence or fear, but to embrace every opportunity God brings my way and to make the most of my life.

My brother Shaun loved the saying, “Just do it”. Just do something and make the most of the opportunities before you. One of his favourite passages in the bible says that when we wait upon the Lord we will rise up and soar on wings like eagles and run and not grow weary, and walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

We are alive today, so shouldn’t we make the most of this day? Shouldn’t we find out what God’s plan and purpose is for our life and then go out and just do it?

Is that always easy? No. But if we walk with Jesus we will start to discover that, “He makes everything beautiful in His time”, and that He is at work perfecting everything that concerns us. (Ecclesiastes 3:11; Ps 138:8) Even if at times when we don’t understand and we just have to go to a place of trust knowing God loves us and it is going to be alright because He has a hope, plan and a future for our life, that’s okay. The key is to keep looking at Jesus and moving forward.

Where are you today in your journey? Are you enjoying the sweet taste of good times or a series of unexpected, unpleasant events? Because whatever you are going through, I want to encourage you to rely on Jesus and His love for you. He will get you through the distasteful portions of life and lead you out the other side.  He promises He will help you to make sense of any mess and create a strength in you that you didn’t have before. He will also make the sweet moments even sweeter and increase those blessings to you.

Life is like a fantastic box of chocolates. (I happen to like the Vanilla caramel ones). It’s loaded with surprises, opportunities and challenges but it is like a box of chocolates and worth unwrapping!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in yourbook before one of them came to be”. (Psalm 139:16)

“But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.” (Isaiah 40:31 AMP)

Prayer: Lord thank you that you have given me life. Help me in every season to be grateful for the sweet times and learn to trust you in the distasteful moments. Thank you that you are faithful and work all things together for my good. In Jesus Name. Amen.
