Have you ever had your whole day planned out and it all just falls apart? It’s not anything you did. It could be sickness, something breaking, another family member or even a stranger that causes it. I used to come unglued and occasionally I still do but the more I’ve matured I’ve come to see it as Gods plan for my day. Proverbs 16:9 reads “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Now I try to take a deep breath and thank God for changing my plans because I know as long as I trust in His ways, He will always protect and keep me safe in His plan.

I was talking to my Daddy yesterday and he asked me a question. “How do you pray?” By the way he is a Pastor so I was a little hesitant to answer. He said “you should be praising God more than asking from God.” He also said “God wants a relationship with you and wants you treat him like your earthy Father. The more I thought about it. I do ask for more than I praise Him and I sometimes I don’t see God as my Daddy, I see him as this mighty God with bigger things to do than listen to me. You know what though, my Daddy is right! So today that’s what I did. I’ve talked to Him about my day and thanked Him for all He does. I told him how much I love and need Him in my life. How about you, how do you pray? Thanks for reading!
Over two thousand years ago after feeling all hope was gone. The disciples and followers woke to a day the earth had never seen. The day our Savior had risen from death and sin to a new world where we no longer have to pay for our sins. He paid the price for us. He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed! Happy Easter Everyone! Thanks for reading!
Today I’ve been thinking about how the disciples and followers must have felt the day after they saw Jesus crucified. I know they believed He would come back but they were human and we as humans still have this thing called doubt. I’m sure they must have felt all their hope was gone. It was their darkest day. One thing they had to hold on to, was that Jesus always spoke truth and tomorrow was coming! Thanks for reading!
We spent today pulling up railroad ties from the pasture and using them to make a raised bed garden. We spent all day working but my mind kept going back to what today truly means. It’s the day my sweet Jesus suffered for me. I can’t even think about it without crying. He loved me so much that He hung on the cross for me. He hung there for you too. He paid the price so we can spend eternity with Him. He loved us enough to die for us. This is how love wins! Thanks for reading!
