Sometimes we get so bogged down with life, so frustrated, so irritated, so angry, so scared...
Sometimes we feel as if everything in our life is out of control and we forget...
We forget the things our Lord has done for us.
Sometimes, we forget the things He has brought us through.
So tonight I will reflect
I will remember the things my Lord has brought me through.
I will remember the time JJ and I were struggling in our marriage and the Lord spoke to me and gave me words that I have continued to hold onto when times get tough and I remember to "Just Stand."
I will remember when financially my back was against the wall in a certain situation, I cried out to God in the middle of the night, the next day I woke up and upon returning home there was a large lump sum check in my mailbox sent as part of my financial aide that I thought I had already received.
I will remember when the doctor told me I would have to deliver my son at 29 weeks...I was so scared... I prayed, I fell on my knees and asked God for His help. Buddy was born at 38 weeks gestation in perfect health.
I will remember when I delivered Jay, my first child, and I was losing too much blood, the doctor said a hysterectomy. I was 19. My dad called my Nana to have her pray...everyone prayed...bleeding stopped...I have three children now.
I will remember times when I thought death was the answer. I will remember times I was left in a drug and alcohol filled house by myself at night. I will remember the times He has seen me through even when I couldn't fathom a possible solution.
I will remember His goodness.
I will remember His grace.
I will remember His love for me.
I will remember, it's in His hands.
Then I thought, "To this I will appeal:
the years of the right hand of the Most High."
I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will meditate on all your works
and consider all your mighty deeds.
