God is Good!

Today I find myself in the midst of difficulties...yet I'm smiling and saying Praise GOD!

This is not the usual for me. I will admit I've had a real hard time with the whole praising God even in the hard times thing, but lately things have been different. I see God in a whole new way. Everytime I "teach" my child something discipline wise... I think of myself compared to God and realize how sad I must make him when I make those silly choices, just like it saddens me when my children make silly choices. Even as simple as not trusting, or not obeying right away. Like I said, I see everything in a new way now between me and God. It has been amazing! I'm so glad for all the things He has provided for us, including our wonderful children. I do not know what I would do without God, or my family. :) God has been so good to provide for us and bring encouragement to us through our friends. If it were not so I would be digging a hole and going crazy. So even if you are strapped for money and you don't get your next check until the end of the month, and you just got your car back from the shop with a very hefty price tag..... Don't sweat it. God is bigger than all, and somehow He will pull you through.

I love the lyrics from this song..... Bring the Rain-Mercy Me...

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

God puts us through trails to help mold us into what he wants us to be. We can use them as reminders for what God was teaching us at that time. Praying that God will provide in a mighty way, although, it may not be in a way that you would expect.
