HumbledBeing transparent, this morning I have not been in a good mood. Why doesn’t matter. It is enough that for the last few hours I have not had a good attitude. Then as I was checking my website and blog, I noticed a post someone read from 2010 I didn’t remember. So I clicked the link and read this…

Consider what is written in Psalm 73:21-26…

When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart, 22 I was brutish and ignorant; I was like a beast toward you. 23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. 24 You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. 25  Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 26  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I stopped… reflected again… and God encouraged me

Nevertheless… “Even though,” “In spite of,” “Even after…” mistakes, failures, and blunders are committed… the person in Christ is STILL in Christ. HE holds the believer’s hand through every difficult day… every hard time… every storm of adversity… even when they have a bad attitude. As Jesus said, “No one can pluck them out of My Father’s hand!”

Then I realized I had encouraged myself. God had me read something I wrote three years ago… that I had forgotten… to be encouraged by Him.
