Why is it that when you try to be more disciplined, everything falls apart? Why is it that when you allow God to control your life then Satan really starts attacking? We have had a really tough week or so. I’ve tried to be focused on accomplishing our New Year Goals and just about everything has gone wrong. But, things are still “better than I deserve”. Rod has listened to the Dave Ramsey show on podcast. Whenever a caller asks how he is doing, he always says, “better than I deserve”. What a great answer! We deserve death and destruction. But, God in his amazing love gives us life and a hope for the future. In the middle of a week full of temptations and attacks when everything feels like it is awful, I can remember that God is with me, that He loves me and pours out his blessings on my life. This is so much more than I deserve!
My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline
and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in.
P.S. Thanks for the encouragement special friend. I’ll try to do a Dave Ramsey post today.
