Smack in the face
Here lately I have been hit smack in the face with quotes,verses, saying etc. As I have shared before I have a son whom I have trouble getting along with. My husband tells me all the time you can’t get along cause you two are so much alike. In his mind I’m sure he is just being a child. In my mind this precious little, big brown eyed little boy is an unthankful, little brat, who's jumping all over my last nerve.
I’ve said before and I’ll continue to say that God has ways to deal with you through your children. For me this is so true I am taught this lesson each and every day. Another way to look at it is that its Gods way of keeping us on our knees. With that being said here’s what God has been teaching me through some verses.
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Col. 4:2
“..the Lord disciplines those he loves” Heb. 12:6
“Be joyful always; pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thess. 5:16-18
"This is what the LORD Almighty says: Judge fairly and honestly, and show mercy and kindness to one another. Sec. 7:9
Wow! Did those verses touch you like they did me. Its always a good reminder to me that when I read verses like these I need to be HIS word more. Meditate on these verses and spend some time our our Lord and Jesus.
