Good morn sisters
Yesterday was a good quiet day. Church, and then preparing the garage to be painted. It was nice because even my ds helped out I'm anxious for it to be finished because then we can work on making my laundry room and making my play room bigger for the fall.
Church was good yesterday and this is what I retained:
We need to get back to the roots of our spiritual life. Trials are there to test us. When we read we receive truth of the word we are strengthened. Jesus was tempted in the desert with only part of the word but he didn't fall for it. He responded: it is also written… It is so important to know the word and be balanced and not set all on beliefs on any one particular verse.
Goodness and severity of God...go together. God covered Adam and Eve after the fall but also expelled them from the garden never allowing them to return.
God gives us balanced truth... Must be taken together.
There was a particular anecdote that stuck with me:
Trials are like boiling things in water:
When you boil a carrot it goes soft, when you boil an egg it goes hard, but when you put coffee in hot water it is transformed into something wonderful…the message for us: trials can leave us broken and soft like the carrot, they can harden us like the egg…or they can transform us like the coffee
Have a wonderful Monday sisters! Enjoy the 'coffee' God is trying to make with us
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
