Tests, Trials & Miracles...

This past week has been a whirlwind of emotions. A dear friend of mine has been through a total ringer/trauma of a lifetime. Her sweet husband was hit by a Super-Duty truck going 60+ MPH. She witnessed it.

If I had written this post last week, it would have been bleak, to say the least. It was a minute by minute change in status. He had numerous internal wounds, and was prayed back to health & safety. Yesterday he was out of bed WALKING! Honestly. I am amazed.

Learning the lessons the Lord has in mind for us, are not easy, nor is it comfortable. We are pushed, shoved and sometimes PUMMELED into submission, to become what He wants us to be.

I am making it a personal goal to be humble and submissive to the Lords will. I do not want to be compelled to be humble. humility is not my strong suit. I have an independent streak a mile wide. I like to do it on my own, on my terms and in my schedule.

Not always conducive to be a servant in His hands, to be able to grasp towards the goal that He has in mind for me. I know this of myself. I know that I am too often that fool hanging from a thread, and begging for help, and in the successful outcome, I pat myself on the back rather than give credit to Him.

I will try harder. I am setting a goal to turn over a new leaf, to be a better help-meet, a better nurturer, and a better servant.

I love the Lord, and I want to do His will. I will try harder.
