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!
Hope you have a great weekend!!!
