Psalm 147:1

"Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!"

"He tends his flock like a shepherd: 
He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; 
he gently leads those that have young."

-Isaiah 40:11

I am so grateful for the Lord's leading. 
I fail so often on my own. 
I plan.
I re-plan.
I think I've got it all figured out....
then I am grossly made aware that I don't have it all figured out.
That my life is truly selfish.
That for all the good things I do,
I am still a sinful, selfish, undeserving person
who needs the redeeming love of my Savior! 
That taking up my cross and following Him
is a DAILY task. 
One that is not dependent on mood or circumstance,
sun or rain.
Yesterday was a day filled with "willing" myself to remain
positive even though I wanted to cry.
Even though, because of a decision I had made,
my day wasn't going so well.
After a few words with the Lord and some time laying quietly, 
I was reminded that peace comes from the Lord but that we must 
"rest in it". 
Help me Lord to not allow my emotions to dictate my mood.....
Thank you!
