Okay, okay...I am going to be honest. I didn't want to post anything all week...and not even now. I have been so busy that the last thing I wanted to do is prepare a post. :( Sorry, isn't that sad?
...But you know sometimes you know when God is speaking to your heart and nudging you to do something.
There was something He laid on my heart to share last Sunday...something beautiful.
But I have so much on my plate right now
that I kept shutting it out. :(
The kicker was when I peeked in on one of my favorite blogs
(haven't done much visiting this week...no time)
to see what she was up to.....
there it was....the "something"!
The very thing that God wanted me to share!
I am going to send you over to her blog to read this something!
I want to start by sharing a little bit of what God shared with me...
what He gave to me....
Do you ever look around you and say
"Wow, this isn't fair? Why do I have to deal with this while...(fill in the blank of someone you know and who you have witnessed delighting in a world of blissful blessings and seemingly no care in the world)."
Yeah, that's right it isn't fair, is it??
If I received what was really fair
....what I deserve
...hmmmm. what. does. that. look. like?
But I live with the generosity of
Grace which is
We have grown accustomed to His Grace being the norm...
our expectations become increasingly higher with His abundant blessings.
Blessings, though, are exactly that...undeserved gifts.
When we think life is unfair,
we need to hit the reset button
and remember we don't deserve His Grace, let alone anything else!
So you see, life isn't fair at all....but that is a very good thing!!
So, the next time I find myself, sulking and thinking it is not fair...
I will be hitting the reset button! :)
God has given me a reset button!
And, that is what I wanted to share...
and now you also must go see what Rebecca at "A Gathering of Thoughts" has for today in regards to this "something"...
Hitting the reset button with you today, my friend! :)
