In All Seriousness ...

Is it okay if I get serious--and personal--for today?

Not long ago I wrote that I've been going through a rough time, not feeling like myself. While I can't say that everything is completely resolved, I'm feeling much better than I was. Even though it's not Gratituesday or Thankful Thursday, I feel led to share the incredible way that God has worked ... is still working ... in this situation.

And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. (1 Cor 10:13b, NIV)

God is indeed faithful! At the darkest times, when I felt as though there was no hope at all, the Lord sustained me. He also provided a way out--through people who cared enough to listen, to pray with me and for me, to advise, and to comfort me.

I am simply and continually amazed at the goodness of God, who hears me when I cry out and who loves me so much that He provides everything I need!

I might have posted this video another time, but I think it's worth repeating! I believe this song was made famous by Rich Mullins, but I really like the Big Daddy Weave recording. This song blesses me every time I hear it, and I hope it's a blessing to you, too.

This didn't start out as a meme post, but I decided to link it to Amanda's 27 Days of Thankful. Click through to see what others are thankful for, or to link up your own post about thankfulness or Thanksgiving.


  1. Love that song. :) Thank you for your honesty. It's REALLY hard for me to not worry, to give my troubles to Him...I depend on myself too often, and that rarely works out. :) Thanks for sharing what is on your heart.

  2. Praise the Lord for His goodness!! So glad you did share that! Hope you have a blessed day!

  3. You are always in my thoughts and prayers...
    Glad you are feeling better...
    Every day is a journey...
    we just have to try and make the best out of it!

  4. That is good that you are feeling better. I saw your post before regarding Back to Basics. Family is important:) Last year I blog all the time around the holidays. This time around probably not so much. My blogging addiction isn't so bad now. Last year I was constantly on the computer. My kids would be like, "Oh, she is blogging:("

  5. Thankful that you are feeling better. I couldn't agree more with your post, faith, and the need to post it. I have been slammed in the office for the last two weeks... by the meanest, most self serving person we have ever done business with. I was so upset by his behavior(and I'm not easily shaken) that I atually cried! What makes it worse, we have been doing business with this guy for five years. The bulk of our work comes from his contracts now that things are so slow. Hubby and I prayed and talked and prayed some more. We went around the world, we would agree then disagree. One this we knew for sure, Jesus is the boss. I got through phase one of the project with no further mishaps. I allowed God to give me the words, let him be in control as I dealt with this guy today. With continued faith we will get through phase two and move on to collecting what is due. For that, we will need "the full amour" I'm sure! Happy your feeling better and hope things continue improving.
