The Holy Spirit was nudging me...you need to stop... but I was like a dog gnawing on a bone, I wasn't ready to give it up. Who doesn't like tossing and turning with sleep out of reach because your playing that stupid tape in your head over and over again, with all those imagined conversations your gonna have.
Again this morning the Holy Spirit nudged me...you need to stop reacting. What is it that you say that you believe?
Do you believe...Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him and have been called according to his purposes
Yeah that one, do you believe that?
Time to step back from the drama of the situation and begin to respond like I believe what God's word says. I prayed this morning that God would change my attitude...he has. Weeks ahead are going to be interesting and the temptation to get pulled right back into the drama is going to remain, after all the situation hasn't changed....but I am praying that when I am tempted to despair he will remind me once again that nothing comes into my life that is not filtered by him...and that he uses every situation for my good and his purposes. There is comfort in that when you really think about it.
