This week has been difficult for me and my family, so I am glad it is over. How about you? Did you have a good week or a week that you are glad is over as well?
Reading the scriptures today, I ran across a verse in the Message translation that I just love.
Psalm 73: 1-3, ” No doubt about it!! God is good- good to good people, good to the good-hearted. But I nearly missed it, missed seeing his goodness. I was looking the other way, looking up to the people at the top, envying the wicked who have it made, who have nothing to worry about, not a care in the whole wide world. ”
Living in today’s world is not easy at times but I am thankful that He loves me and is good to good people, even when we feel that the evil and wicked are moving ahead in life. This verse gives me comfort in knowing that God will vindicate me and my family even when it seems as though the “evil” are prospering. God is bigger than the enemy and even when the world has blinded those we love to the pain and hurt they have inflicted, God will stand beside us and bring us to the ultimate victory.
Pain and hurt have been such a part of my life that I really just get overwhelmed and want to give up. But I know that my God has brought me out of such a dark place in the past and once again He can move mountains if I seek His face and call out to Him in my times of need. Maybe today it will not be resolved but even though I do not understand what is going on within my extended family, I know that my God will RESTORE in HIS TIME… God gave me the word for 2013 of RESTORE, so that is what I am holding onto at this time.
My defintion of restore may not be the same as what God sees for the word RESTORE in my life. I am praying for HIS will; not my will be done.
My prayer for restore:
Restore family relationships
Restore health and healing
Restore peace and prosperity for Mike, Angie and Chance
Restore God’s plan for me and my life
Restore Angie to who she has been called to be.
Restore ….. I am praying for God to be good to good-hearted people, even when those who are evil and wicked have it made.. That is ME, LORD.. I want you to be good to this good-hearted follower and for my son and husband as well.
Today, be brave. Be bold. Be YOU… Love and hugs to you all..
