Happy Monday Lovely Ladies!
Today as been a typical Monday with many trials, obstacles and hurdles. Isn't it so ironic how we can have such a wonderful relaxing weekend and the second we step into the office, we are faced with so much overload, stress and nasty attitudes.
On days like these I find myself reminding myself of James 1:2-4, "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." Basically, In the mist of terrible things we need to be thankful and shout out praises to God, seriously does that make sense to you! haha This is one of the hardest things to do ever! I love that God's Holy Word goes against Man's Wisdom. When the world faces trouble, it complains, asks for pity parties, and harbors bad attitudes. We are called to do the opposite, we are called to rejoice and shout praise!
Verses like these make me fall in love with Christ our Savior. Think about it ladies, for example, your boyfriend/husband has had an extremely terrible day at work, when he sees you all you are doing is complaining and being a nag about who knows what because its that time of the month. Instead of him acting out in anger and frustration, he approaches you, smiles and gently kisses you on the forehead and sincerely says, "Baby, I am so thankful for you." Ahh, could you just imagine! How amazing would that make you feel?!
So, ladies, if you had a not-so-perfect day today, spend some extra time on your knees shouting praises to Our Lord and Savior, for HE is good and we are undeserving of His love.
