December 7

The flesh is alive and well! I got a little vindictive when things didn’t go my way, and turned on a little southern girl justice. I guess I can be a spoiled little brat and revert back to my childhood by holding my breath in anger. Our God in His goodness, decided that I didn’t need a spanking for my poor behavior, and let me off the hook. We have such a loving Father; even though what I meant to do was to hurt someone’s feelings, He turned it into a positive thing. I still didn’t get my way, but because of God’s goodness, and because He didn’t want anyone seeing my bad side, that person didn’t even notice my mischievous behavior. What’s more, I had asked Him to handle the situation, and when He did what was best for me, I got mad! The point of this is, God works all things out for the good of those who love Him. Just know that He’s got your back, and you don’t need to get your cockles up and lash out in a tizzy! You’re covered! Thank goodness that we don’t always get the punishment we deserve.

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."  Romans 8:28
