Times are NOT hard really.....a few days ago, in my devotional reading, I read about good-day, bad-day mentality....basically how we can fall into the trap of thinking that we have good and bad days based on our "feelings" or experiences. That has really resonated with me. I fall into that trap. Deciding that today was good or bad based on how I perceive the day to have gone. Really, though, every day that God gives me on this earth is and should be a g00d day! I am struggling right now. I am sure that it is anxiety, and tiredness.....I am emotional and not thinking rationally. I am having to take every thought captive and think on what is true. Not what I think is true but what is truly true. It takes work! It is hard. But by Gods grace, I am able to do that. Nothing earth shattering either, just silly stuff that if left unchecked can be harmful....so very thankful though that I serve a God who hears and knows and understands me because He made me. Fearfully and wonderfully!!! I have much much much to be thankful for and much to look forward to. So, for now, I will try to rest in HIM.....and whatever is true, noble,lovely, excellent,worthy of praise, I will think on these things!
