Monday - I love my Bible, God's Word and I am so thankful that so much of it is memorized within my heart, a living force when days are tough. Monday we were challenged to live out the gratefulness message we had preached on Sunday. Our van broke down, the transmission is done and we had $18 in the bank. I took the bus home from work and Jeremiah spent two hours taking the bus to the bank and back to deposit a check. I was emotional, the kids were trying and crying. Yet, throughout it all, scriptures kept comforting my heart.
"Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?" Matthew 6:26
"Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. 19The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places." Habakkuk 3:17-19
