Lessons God teaches

"For I know the plans I have for you...." God is in control and present in the good and the bad. Counting our blessings (the good) and leaning on Him (during the bad). There is such a balance between world standards and God standards. Do I leave God out of the day to day? All of a sudden our checkbook balance has dropped (you know, real estate taxes, license plates for vehicles, four kids, ......eating out at great places--for my birthday--but spending more than normal). There is nothing wrong with "watching pennies", but sometimes I want to be shown "money is no object" (within reason) without feeling guilty. Ahhh, the bottom line. So, God is in control. He will sustain us in times of plenty and in want. He will provide and I will do well to remember Him in day to day decisions and activities. And always I will remember that He loves me and His ways are higher than mine.
