The Great Provider

It's one of "those" days, y'all. You know the kind where it takes every bit of effort to just get out of bed. Now granted, things have been hectic around here to say the least with the wedding and all the company and then the trip to Kentucky this past weekend. However, some days I don't even have an excuse as to why I feel this way. Everything could be going as planned and yet, I still have these days. I have also found that certain times of the month make everyday tasks a little big more "challenging," shall we say?

It is days like these that I have to rely on the Lord more than ever. When I don't feel I have enough strength, I call on HIM to provide it for me. When I don't have a good attitude HE lovingly "nudges" me and once again I am reminded of my many blessings. When I don't feel like going out of my way to help anybody HE has a way of reminding me that it is my duty to be Christlike in my dealings with others. When I feel "grumpy" HE reminds me that a change is attitude is needed and that it can absolutely make a world of difference to how my day turns out. When I want to throw a "pity party" for myself HE doesn't want to be my invited guest, HE'D much rather me attend someone elses's!

Most importantly, through HIS everlasting love he gives me the strength to forge ahead. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I don't know what tommorrw will bring but I do most definitely know, "what a friend I have in Jesus!"
