Thursday Thoughts


What an amazing week I've had!!! 

I won't go into complete detail....but God has really spoke to me this week about some things....not all of them pleasant, mind you....but at least He showed me some things that I need to change....because He wasn't getting the glory in some of my thoughts and actions....and words!!!  

And....HE also spoke to me thru a sweet friend....even though I didn't like what I heard....at first....I took her words to heart....and prayed about it....and realized that her words were from the Lord!!!   
So....this morning....I decided to "turn over a new leaf"....and what I found under it....was pure JOY!!

I have to say....that I honestly am getting to the point in my life....that God's reprimand....feels good!!!  Reminds me of when Jess was little....and she would be so mean.....such a little rascal....wouldn't mind....and it was almost like she was begging to be corrected.  So...being the good Momma that I was....she got a spanking....and it always amazed me at the difference it made in her.  I think sometimes my rebellion is just my way of asking God to HELP....to step in and take over because I'm really messing things up....and He "spanks" me in His own way.....and oh, what a difference it makes in me!!!

So....are any of you rebelling....wanting things your way?  
Why not ask God to shine His Light into your heart....and see if there are some things in there that might not be true....and honest?

Job 5:17 (NLT)
"But consider the joy of those corrected by God!
Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin."

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. I try not to do things the way I want but my human nature takes over instead of waiting for God. Just like teaching Tabitha to drive a stick shift for that is what her car is but she wants to drive it yesterday. Boy she can drive one now. She didn't have patience but she did have persistance and we just have to keep pursuing God when we need Him most and put our human nature in the back seat.

  4. Thanks for the post. I've been moping around the last few weeks after dealing with the loss of a precious little one, and I've been taking it out on my poor hubby. I know God would want me to grieve, but not at the expense of my loved ones. Thanks for the reminder to speak and act in a way that glorifies him.

    Be blessed.

  5. God's way is the only way. We all have a hard time with this, but when we let HIM be in charge, life is a joy!

    Have a blessed day!
