Romans 8:31 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?
Romans 8:32 If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?
I woke up at 1:50 am this fine Tuesday and had this overwhelming feeling about God. Poor God, I can’t believe what I put him through yesterday. Monday somehow got blown up over my having expectations which when not meet turned into disappointments. I had my crew’s lined out but little did I know that the state of Okla was about to reach out and touch a couple of them over child support. I ended up with 1 out of 3 workers. After the inner rage in my “black and white,” being tossed over board I went back to God and ended up giving them a raise and hired one of their wives.
My truck was finished so they wanted the van back Monday. Great that took 3 hours out of my schedule. The brother in Christ who does sheetrock is to busy to do a bid so he calls and bows out. Finally mid evening my other sheet rock contact calls me and gives me a bid. Then my 1 man crew can’t lift the window so it didn’t get framed in and that held my Dallas stucco expert on the bubble as to when he can repair the stucco. This house has 1949 almost perfect stucco still in tack. We are determine to restore the few cracks and paint it again.
I had to have my blood drawn (every Monday forever) and we made it back from Carrollton with ten minutes to spare. The front door of Lab Corp isn’t wheelchair accessible without additional help; struggle, struggle.
On the way home I told Rhonda I will not be shaken and started searching in my mind for Psalms 16:8 ~ I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Nobody gets through life without disappointments. Not everyone who plays the game wins. Not all who strive for success achieve it. Not all marry and live happily ever after.
The greater our expectations and desires, the greater our disappointment when they are not fulfilled.
This much I know; I thankful for a God who goes through me on a “bad day.” I feel bad for God having to put up with me when I’m edgy but the Bible says he delights in my presence.
God’s not mad at me. God is right here right now and has forgiven me of yesterday’s sins. He also has forgiven me of today and tommow’s. Why; because he is faithful and just. Yoke to heavy give it to him.
Love you God.
