Goodness in Heart

Many things have been occuring in my/our live(s) these past few months that can take a root of bitterness. I have purposed in my heart that I will not allow this to happen. Bitterness can ruin you and the loved ones in your lives. Some things *I* cannot change. Some things others do not want to change. This is just how they are...as irritating as it is. Ones who claim to have goodness and have not can suck the joy out of your life if you're not careful. If this is happening to you, do not allow it! Ask the Lord to help you, sing a song, read His Word and think happy things. Don't think on things that cannot be changed but leave it in God's hands. He knows what He's doing! And one thing He might be doing is testing YOU or molding YOU to help others do the same. Be proactive instead of reactive and things will be better. Satan tries to work on you through others, out of church and in church. Who is the Victor? The Lord Jesus is who shed His BLOOD for YOU! For ME! Glory, I am free! Thank you, Jesus. God does answer prayers and I KNOW He's going to do something fabulous in our lives very soon. Thank you, Lord, in advance for all that you are going to do for us. We serve a wonderous God. God is GOOD all the time.

I needed this little reminder. Thank you Susan.

Things have been going pretty crazy around my house lately and I know that I have been struggling with becoming slightly bitter, myself. I can see how my attitude has rubbed off on my children and this saddens me. I know that everything has a season and I hope that this "struggling season" will soon pass to a new season.

Thank you so much for the encouraging words and the reminder that God is good ALL of the time.
