Oh happy day!!


I am happy today, and it makes no sense. There are things not right in my little corner of the world at the moment.  Actually there are some things that are really quite wrong in ways.  Yet, I am truly happy.  If I look at those things that are there, I can become quite stressed and uncomfortable.  I can say, “I wish this…” or, “if only that…”, or “but why…”.  If I do that, I am rather miserable.  But I don’t feel miserable.  I’m happy because I know God loves me with an immense, immeasurable love.  I’m happy because He will provide all that’s necessary in my life and the lives of my loved ones.  I trust Him implicitly with myself, and with those that I love…because He loves all of us even more.

I’m in a waiting period for some things, and meanwhile other things that I’ve been praying about for a rather long time are miraculously coming together in the most amazing ways.  Why should I doubt that the rest of it will be okay too? 🙂

Ephesians 3:20-21

New International Version (NIV)

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Look at that in verse 20…”…immeasurably more than all I could ask or imagine!!”  Why should I worry about anything? 🙂

Love and blessings,

Anne

    happy by having the grace of god………………..is the best reason for being happy. we don’t need gifts, or attention. we need to know we are loved by the almighty

    Great posting… when we see the Lord’s blessings in our lives it should be an encouragement for us to keep trusting Him in the areas where He appears to be silent. Much needed reminder. Thanks Anne! Lord bless you.
