holy week

Sorry for the long delay in blogging.  Last week was a rough week – I caught the cold my kids had, we had TV taping & I had a few other plates I was trying to spin (I dropped a few plates). 

Here’s something interesting God spoke to me last week & perhaps you’ll find it helpful:  “don’t reject or diminish God’s provision because it doesn’t meet your expectations”. 

rejectedI’ve really mused on this idea, especially in light of the events of Jesus’ life leading up to His crucifixion.  Humanity rejected God’s provision of Jesus because He didn’t meet their expectations (along w many other reasons).  I see myself doing this as well.  For example, God will give me strength to go through a situation but not rescue me from it.  So because He doesn’t “rescue” me, I get bent out of shape w Him rather than being grateful for His strength.  How about the times when I’m not really happy w Reece (my husband) for whatever reason?  Or what about when my job isn’t going quite like I want it to? 

Please understand, I’m not saying that we should just bury our head in the sand & pretend that everything is always sunny w no rain.  However, I think that we can often be a gripey bunch of humans when we don’t get our way.  If things aren’t going as you’d wanted or planned, then look around for God because He’s probably doing things off the plot – praise Him!  Whew!
