Cool, Mama!

September 28, 2015

I met someone recently, Mom of a friend, and she looks at life through a slightly different lens than I. Happily, we had a brief private talk and I was so blessed and it comes to me upon reflection that we, none of us, are entirely like any other – yet in our own insecurity we tend to demand unattainable sameness.. I am glad -blessed actually- that this is the case! How else would we grow? – Martha L Shaw

Sing Anyway!

cross and crown of thorns

Ephesians 5:19-20

speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This quote is one I cannot read often enough.  It’s so easy to be thankful when things in my life are just as I wish them to be, but when my plans don’t work out, or my prayers aren’t answered in the way I wish they’d been, I don’t always think to say “praise the Lord anyway” and I KNOW I should.  The quote both reminds and convicts me because God’s plan is always best and when He blesses me by not giving me what I want, what I receive ultimately turns out to be more than I can ever desire or pray for, just as the Bible repeatedly tells us.  So, join me in saying “thanks” even when the answer is “no.”  Thank you Lord for always knowing what’s best for me and especially for your patience!
