For everything God does…

The enemy of your lives wants to discourage you in your firm walk—your journey with HIM. On Friday evening when I arrived home from work…I discovered the home computer, which had just been taken to the “shop” for a repair, was stolen from our vehicle from a parking lot at the Vanity Fair Lee Jeans outlet. YUP. You read right. Small towns are not exempt from crime. From the enemy. The computer was not the big issue—it was the baby pictures that made me cry so long.

I didn’t sleep well on Friday night and went to the laundry room to pray and just “whine” about it to God. I have been His daughter long enough that I know that He can do ANYTHING. While I have no idea if His anything will involve enough remorse for the thief to return it…but what I do know—it did not catch God by surprise.

In the everyday of our lives, we are caught off guard by circumstances and situations continually, but God is not. As our days dawn and begin to unfold as a flower in the sunlight, our lives do as well—each taking on the fragrance of Him—when we live to serve Him.

As I told the ladies on Thursday night, Jesus said in John 16:33 that “in this world we will have troubles, but take heart—I have overcome the world.”—-so the troubles need not to surprise us…my Father knows all things we have need of.

Thank you all again for praying for me!
