Today...

Today was a day with active, energetic, fun boys.
But it was also a day of strong wills, a few tantrums, attitudes, gigantic messes, spilled milk & so much cleaning I should go into business
(*note: last statement was sarcasm)
As I dealt with each issue with the grace & poise of Supernanny(NOT), I found myself feeling like God was dealing with me!
Every day, He is faced with my strong will, tantrums & my stinkin, rotten attitude!
He teaches me about patience, love & mercy!
Though I am undeserving, His grace is ready & available with endless supply.
I am so far from perfection, that sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get it right,
but Jesus' love never fails me!
He has taught me that behind every strong will there is a leader that needs to be taught how to lead. Behind every tantrum there is a heart that needs to come under the rulership of Christ. Behind every attitude there is a life that needs to live inside the Fathers arms. Because then the attitude is turned into godly character.

So I will look back on the events of today with gratitude. Because, in the midst of life's happenings, God loved me enough to take the time to teach me about my own heart & His faithfullness.

Psalm 113:9

He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the LORD!
Lord, I trust that you know perfectly your plan for my life! I put my life in your hands. I don't understand what you are doing in me, but I know that you are faithful to complete it. My heart has questions, but I know you will answer! My mind can't comprehend why you take me through what you do, but I know you are the God of the mountains AND the God of the valley!!
So, even though i can't see, I will hold tightly to your hand, for you promise you will NEVER let me go! You promise to give me a future & a hope. You promise that if I delight in You, then You will give me the desires of my heart!
Thank you for your giving me all that I need.
