A new day. A decision to make. Am I going to continue to think about yesterday or pick myself up and focus on today? My choice is today, please. God help me.

Yesterday, I turned to God to give me some sort of comfort...because I have learned that He's the only one that will really do the trick. He gave me something from my Esther Bible study from a few days ago :

We are wise to force ourselves to keep differentiating between simple inconveniences and authentic tribulations. ~Beth Moore

When I read this for the first time last week, I thought about our current situation...Dan not having a job. It's a pretty big tribulation but it's been met with simple inconveniences along the way. They always seem to be much more than simple to me just because of the big tribulation. So, I asked myself last night, if what I am crying over is really that huge. The answer, no. It's a minor setback in God's big plan. It may feel huge for many reasons...but, not a big tribulation. I guess it just seemed like a way my flesh would finally have relief. I am crying out to God to give my soul some relief. In the meantime, while I wait, verses are jumping off of the pages at me.

“Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction.I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.” ~Psalm 119:92-93

Missed you today at bible study. You will have to get the dvd, it was pretty powerful, at least to me, but this whole thing has been hitting me straight to the heart!

Love you and praying for you! :0)
