I'm not gonna be a Debbie Downer!!!

I had a post all written up and already scheduled for today.
I walked away....and God said "NO"!!!
So....without even re-reading it....I simply hit "delete"!!!

It was quite therapeutic for me to write it!!
Got a lot off my chest!!!
Even tried to justify by inserting a sentence that said something about maybe others needed to hear it so it could help them.

But, who was I fooling?
Myself?
Maybe.
But certainly not God!!!

Instead....I'm sharing this sign.

Because....it describes everything I need!!!

Psalm 62:5
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
    for my hope is in him.



Have a great Monday, Sweet Reader!!!


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

  2. Oh, how many times have I had to "delete" b/c the LORD said, Nay my daughter Nay...delete that !!!!! Have a blessed day my friend ...and may the God of Peace be our companion today...as I was studying last night in my bible institute studies,"The Fourfold Minstry of the Holy Ghost"..the author of the book, stated, "We need to pray every morning and evening, God give me a fresh new Unction from the Holy Ghost"....I think sometimes I get caloused over and don't feel the Unction...thus I find myself in situations that could have been avoided...if only....HAVE A MARVELOUS MONDAY

  3. I have a stack of posts like you described saved in "draft"! I think I may have just received the message to "DELETE THEM"!

    Enjoy all the blessings and satisfaction of obeying the Holy Spirit today, Deb.

  4. You're not playing fair...I feel like a Debbie Downer today (only my name isn't Debbie...lol) It's one of those lovely hormonal days where I'm glad the kids are at school and CL is at work so they don't have to hear me grip, grip, grip! I was really enjoying my misery. But after reading your post I guess I'm going to have to follow your lead...

  5. Yes writing it down is therapeutic, it gets it off our chest and out of the way. Life can be hard and unjust also..People hurt us, sometimes on purpose and sometimes unawares...and we do the same thing.. But thank God, He is always there.. I pray He is your strength today. Much love from Ozzie land.
