Just 6 more hours of work this week . . .
I think I'm on the anvil.
It will get better. It will get better. It will get better.

I've think I've found one of the ways God prunes me. Whenever things begin to go really well, I tend to get cocky. "I'm doing what I'm supposed to, and this is my reward." I really wish I'd quit doing that. Because every time that happens, something happens to put a mirror to my face and show me just how ugly and sinful I can be. I don't know (and it doesn't matter) whether God does this himself or allows Satan to do this (gleefully, I'm sure), but I learn my lesson . . . for a little while. LOL--I can remember wondering (maybe a little pridefully, I'll admit) how the Israelites could possibly keep falling away from God and worshipping idols after God would deliver them from slavery, pestilence, and other choice situations. Guess God wanted me to have a little pity on them. ; )

Tomorrow's gonna be a great day!

Several times I have read things in the Bible thinking those people just don't get it--then God shows me I am behaving just like they did--I do feel pruned--OUCH!

Hope you have a great weekend!!!
I was hit in the head this morning with a sermon I've needed for years. Amazing how God chooses to work in our lives.

Your blog is truly inspiring!
