"IF YOU FALTER IN TIMES OF TROUBLE, HOW SMALL IS YOUR STRENGTH" - PROVERBS 24:10
Wow. What a hit to the heart! And to think that I was strong and mighty! This is part of what I read for my morning devotional (Proverbs 24). I am going through the book of Proverbs. If you haven't done it...I definately recommend it! Proverbs is full of so much WISDOM and ADVICE! Just in the last couple of days I've been reading it...mind blowing. I couldn't hold all of this in...so I'm blogging it - for anyone and everyone to see! :D
WHAT THIS VERSE SAID TO ME:
It said that even though the scale may not show success right away, I am being successful. I don't need to go and whine about it. I need to have the faith that as long as I'm exercising and eating right, I will eventually see results.
WHAT THIS VERSE SAID TO ME: Everday life
It said that (short terms) when something bad (or quote "bad") happens to me, don't fly off the hinge! God is in control and even if I don't know what He's doing...just chill! What makes me think that I have the right to know everything that God knows! He's the Boss! Would I question my boss when they did something? NO! Why? Because I know that my boss has his/her agenda and is probably doing what is best for the company(etc) in making that decision. THE WORLD DOESN'T REVOLVE AROUND ME! NOT EVERY SINGLE DECISION PEOPLE MAKE HAS TO BENEFIT ME!!! Whooh!
I need to be strong and realize that when I may think that the world is crumbling around me (which in a way...it is) my God is in control! Be strong in that fact!!
