Think About it Thusday

I am thinkin'...

that many times I define myself by my problems instead of my joys...thinking not how full my life is ... but rather how empty my checkbook maybe at the moment.
I say God is so big...but I think my problems are so big God can't handle them.
I struggle to admit I need help while rushing to help others...
I am thinking of one of my favorite scriptures...

And we know that in all things God works together for the good of those who love him,who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

I do the very same thing! Sometimes it is so hard to give it up to God and just be thankful for what we do have. I may not have the house decorated exactly as I would like, but I have a home. My kids might be driving me nuts today, but they are healthy and happy!
Thanks for reminding me to be thankful the haves and not the havenots!

It's amazing! I often think those same thoughts especially when it feels as if your world is crumbling around you. Then you sit and say you need to turn it over to God and you always feel better.

It's soooooo easy to get sucked up into the now, and lose sight of how much is good.

I certainly don't think any of our problems are too big for God to deal with, just sometimes we don;t see how he's solving them, wecan't see the 'plan'.

I know through our struggles to have children I often thought He'd forgotten me, was punishing me, or sometimes wasn't even there....but there was a plan.

The mad thing is, once you trust in Him again, you do actually start to feel better!

Ahh yes. The have more faith thing. It is hard to trust God with everything, isn't it? This is where I struggle too.
