It's been a discouraging kind of day. It's one that I'll be glad to leave behind me. Nothing, and I mean nothing, seemed to go right today. Through it all I've been asking the Lord what he wants to teach me. I want to learn this lesson quickly and right so I don't have to go through it again. I've been challenged at my response to setbacks. How am I handeling things? What's my attitude? How can I grow through this? I'm trying to learn these lessons in the big things and the small things. And how am I handeling the stress of everyday life? The whining, the crying, the upset routine, the falling through of commitments? I guess there is so much that the Lord wants to refine in me and teach me. May I only be a thirsty vessel for him to fill up. Here's to closing the books on today.
And not only that, but we aslo glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character, and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
- Romans 5:3-5 -
