One day at a time

Hello blog readers. Sadly today's post is not a happy one.

First off I want to apologize to Hannie and Stacy for not wrapping up the RAK on Monday. Since there are only two of you that commented, I'll send both of you something. I'll contact you later when I'm ready to deal with this. I hope you'll be patient with me. Oh and thanks for the book share. I'll check that out.

Anyways, this week my spirit took a real hard blow. I'm having a very difficult time pushing the sadness away and being strong despite of things. I feel like the Lord is throwing me some hard challenges lately and even though I want to think that they're all for my own growth, it's very tough for me to get through them with a smile and a brave heart. That's all I'm going to say about that right now.

But I do want to leave you with this passage today...
"Our job is to try to be good enough, to stretch toward perfection. We know we won't reach it; we knew that before we even came here. Our Father's plan- the plan we accepted in the premortal life- was predicted on the knowledge that we would fall short. The safety net is in place. All we have to do is step out along the tight rope of obedience and take it a day at a time. No matter how many times we miss our step and fall, we can keep the resolution and the courage to climb back up again. God has promised he will stay with us, as long as we hold the faith that He is there and as long as we keep trying- really trying- to be what he has asked us to be. Even though we may not be able to see him, we can still hear His voice in the silence of our own thoughts. As long as we believe, He will sustain us."
-A day at a time, Beppie Harrison

and believe me, I'm trying really hard to BELIEVE in the positive.

that's it.

I don't know what you are dealing with, but let God help you through it. "God will never give you more than you can handle." Period. My favorite verse that helped me get through a rough pregnancy by myself: Jeremiah 29:11. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to help you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."
Sending special prayers your way.
Big hugs from Oklahoma,

No worry Grace about the RAK.
Just remember when there is a test, there is always a "get-out" plan. ;
