Wow...I just checked on http://knit1kids4.wordpress.com/ because she is always up to date on which day of the year it is for photos...And I soon found out how behind I am....If your posting a picture a day for the year, today is day 213! Clearly, I need to catch up....I'm getting there, though...I'll be posting a few more pictures after this post, well, prayerfully!
Here are my sweet boys and manly husband...They had just returned from an overnight backpacking trip! I have to admit I had a little anxiety...All I pictured all day and night was something happening to my husband and my boys being alone...Then, it was my Mikey wondering off and loosing my husband and being alone...And then of course, thoughts of Matthew being alone....
As I went about my day these thoughts from SATAN!! kept coming and going...BUT, my LORD was right there assuring me that HE is in control, not satan...HE told me I love them more than I ever could imagine, and to trust HIM...Oh, thank you JESUS, I do trust you, I'd say! I prayed throughout the day for the LORD to give me Peace, and HE did...Because reality is, HE'S in control...And if HE wanted to allow something to happen to them, it's for HIS glory and HIS purposes and I NEED to trust in HIM...I would much rather trust and worship the KING of the universe, than anyone or anything else in this world!
It's funny how much I love JESUS, how I live my life trying to please HIM, how my life decisions & choices are centered around HIS Word, and yet I still allow the thoughts of satan to go to and fro in my mind...Gosh, I don't know how people do it without the joy and peace of the HOLY SPIRIT...I guess they can think "positive" and change their thought process...That isn't enough for me-I NEED, WANT and DESIRE my LORD JESUS' presence dwelling in my heart...What if tragedy really hits? Will "positive" thoughts help them then? I've seen the outcome of tragedy through believer's and unbeliever's...Oh how I pray they would come to know the LORD, HIS Love and HIS Perfect Peace!!!
So all the world from east to west will know there is no other God. I am the Lord, and there is no other. I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things. Isaiah 45:6-7
