A Refreshing Shower

I was taking a shower the other day...Sunday actually...before church, and I was thinking about a conversation with a young lady at work, about Scripture. Actually, the same young lady I wrote about last. Obviously God has brought us into one another's lives for a reason. Anyway, I was thinking about it and just talking to God about it and He gave me a reminder.

'Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you, Oh Lord." Psalm 19:14

I knew immediately what it meant. I wasn't too proud or too stupid to try to pretend it was anything other than what it is. My words and meditations have not been so pleasing lately. One of the things I see in this young lady is a strong faith and while she struggles in the flesh (as we all do), she knows God has her 'back'.

I'm determined to work on my words...particularly at work...though today appears to be another dismal failure (AKA: Work in progress).

One day at a time.

Well maybe I'll have to take it one minute at a time.

We're all a work in progress, Kim. Just remember that and it makes it a whole lot easier to keep trying minute by minute.

Good encouragement for us all...

One minute at a time - good advice to yourself and to all of us!

Have a blessed Easter - come on over and get a blessing from Tony Campolo!
