- Am I letting the mess define me or refine me?
If they are defining me - I will feel helpless....
If they are refining me - I will feel hopeful....
There it was my "Ahha moment" Why am I allowing these things to define me instead of refining me? I know God allows things to happen in our lives to bring us to Him to be REFINED... why haven't I been letting Him? I have been consumed with the mess instead of what God is teaching me through the mess. Ok, I read it, hear it, and now I am going to try to apply it...
Here's to turning North (up)!
Continuing in my multitudes of blessings for the year:
#45... a yellow rose plant that appeared at my office door from an unknown friend
#46... arms from a nine year old boy that find their way to my face to have me look him in the eyes while he tells me I am his best friend and he loves me most
#47... the thirteen year old young man who is so very protective of this mom and her feelings
#48... broken relationships (yup I said broken) allowing God to fix it in his time, not mine
#49... tanning beds :) here's to sunshine, quiet, and 15 minutes to myself in a locked room!
#50... for the first time that I can remember NOT turning to food to fix my messes
#51... Whipped Cream ;)
