sufficient grace


 

This what I'm trying to do right now...remain steadfast under trial.  But I have to be honest, I'm really not doing a good job.  My attitude has not been what it should, my thoughts have not been on things above, and my words haven't always been gentle and kind.  

I'm letting things get to me that shouldn't...students with bad attitudes, Steve being gone for 2 weeks (he comes home in 3 days!! YAY!), trying to stay on top of school duties,  potty training our puppy who WILL NOT poop outside...and I'm not focusing on the blessings in my life...my hard working husband, healthy daughter, fantastic job, supportive parents, encouraging & fun sisters, amazing friends.....I could go on and on.

So today I'm taking the focus off myself.  No more self pity.  No more complaining.  No more bad attitude.  Yes, it's going to be hard.  When you're only looking in toward yourself it gets really hard to look out and UP.  But I can do this.  One day...one minute...at a time.  And the only way I'm going to be able to lose focus of myself and put it on others is by Grace.  So thankful for Grace right now.  Sufficient, never ending, all encompassing Grace.

Grace is such a blessing! I pray that you are feeling better now - especially since your man is back!
