So glad I am weak... He can show His strength. I did not have a good week at all. To some it wouldn't be a big deal, but to me it was a major devastation to be emotionally. I complained to God, I cried, whined and had a pity party. I was telling God that it wasn't fair and wondering why He's been silent for the past two years.

I'm reading Crazy Love again and chapter two came just in time for me this week.
I Corinthians 10:31 says "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." My part is to bring Him glory! I failed to do that this week.

In Crazy Love, Francis Chan says that God allows hard things to happen in life so you can show the world that your God is great and that knowing Him brings peace and joy, even when life is hard. The point of your life is to point to Him.

I don't always have the best attitude when trials or not so great circumstances come along and that is something I struggle with. I want to be able to reach a point that when something difficult comes along I can say "that's ok, God has a reason and He is still good"

I was mad at God this week, can you beleive that?!!! Mad at my Creator! The One who forgives me again and again, and I am so grateful for His loving-kindness and grace and mercy.

Lamentations 3:22-24 (English Standard Version)

22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
23they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 "The LORD is my portion," says my soul,
"therefore I will hope in him."

Love this verse, and I just have to keep holding on to it and claim it!

Its SO easy to blame God. I fall into that trap time and time again with the whole "pity party" thing.

I always forget that He doesnt put me through things for HIS sake, He does it for ME.

I hope everything you are going through gets so much better SOON
