A good "ouch"... :)

Ecclesiastes 5:2
King James Version (KJV)

Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.

I make it a point to ask God/the Lord to keep me humble and yes, graciously he follows through and graciously I must receive, lol...but this one hurts pretty good, lol.

Ya...good one, Lord! Isn't awesome that just what we need, at the moment we need it; the only one we can truly count on always comes through! And like this time, it's not always what we want but if we're patient (and honest with ourselves) we're able to appreciate it, even when it stings. So yes, thank you Lord!

Whew! :)

Much love to you all in Christ, God bless you!!!

  1. Another thing I struggle with...(eeee, this is gonna hurt) - I often make promises I can't keep. I hate this and I think this is something appropriate to hate because it's not good. But, it's out there now so pray for me, lol. I so often want to good that I just can't do right now...the truth is, for the many ways God has had to humble Ryan and's been good but the truth is, we really don't lack at all. I am in my office right now and frustrated because I can't find places to put all my "stuff". *rolls eyes at self* - not that I don't think I won't use it but...that's beside the point. Anyhow, we have enough money coming in but there is always someone to give money to and then I promise money to them and low and behold, something happens. I get ink or marker on a good piece of clothing or something happens to an appliance - y'all know how that goes.

    Proverbs 16:9
    King James Version (KJV)
    A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

    Why can't I get this through my head, lol! :/ More frustrated at myself than anyone else but I think Kristi *really* needs to memorize these two verses. Ya think, dear?! Someone say it for me, lol.

    Much love to you all in Christ, God bless you!!!
