A Good Reminder of Who Is in Control

    O God, be not far from me;
        O my God, make haste to help me!...
       But I will hope continually
        and will praise you yet more and more.
    My mouth will tell of your righteous acts,
        of your deeds of salvation all the day,
        for their number is past my knowledge.
    With the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD I will come;
        I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.
Psalm 71:12,14-16 

A sweet friend sent me this, and it was such a good picture of the "righteous acts" that our Father does for us every day, that I thought that perhaps you would enjoy reading it, as well.  

Me: God, can I ask you something?
GOD: Sure.
Me: Promise you won't get mad?
GOD: I promise.
Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
GOD: What do you mean?
Me: Well I woke up late,
GOD: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
GOD: Okay....
Me: At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait
GOD: Hmmmm..
Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call
GOD: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak  my feet in my foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work. Nothing went  right today! Why did you do that?
GOD: Well let me see..... the death angel was at your bed this morning and  I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you  sleep through that.

Me (humbled): Oh...
GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your  route that might have hit you if you were on the road
Me (ashamed): ............
GOD: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn't  want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work
Me (embarrassed): Oh.....
GOD: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to  give a false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let  you talk to them so you would be covered
Me (softly): I see God
GOD: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage  that was going to throw  out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in  the dark.
Me: I'm sorry God.
GOD: Just learn to trust me, all things, the  good and the bad
Me: I WILL trust you God
GOD: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your  plan
Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything  today.
GOD: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I  love looking after my children.

As we "hope continually and praise Him more and more!"


Cranberry Morning

Boy, that is excellent!!! No kidding, I so often think of 'what else might be going on' with God and His watch care over me. What an amazing God. I am sorry I whined to God yesterday. I don't do that often, but it was one of those days! I needed to read this. Thanks, Gloria.♥


After my post about whining today, this is pretty humbling... Why don't we think of things like this???


powerful post. love it. good reminder to not doubt His ways of handling things.
