I have received word that things have been dull and boring at 'Simply My Thoughts' this week. I have been pondering some thoughts and have not known quite how to articulate. I have two posts in my drafts that I will most likely delete. As I have said before this blog is somewhat therapeutic in helping me process through what God has been working on, working out, and through me.
I have had a bummer of a week. Nothing major, nothing life altering. I have just felt really beaten down. Lots of little things that have added up to just feeling down about where I am in life. Do you ever have times in your life that you just want to throw your hands up in the air and say:
Every one wants a part of me!
If I don't do it, it won't get done!
I want a do over!
I didn't sign up for this!
That has been me this week. Yesterday as I was thinking through this week and trying to figure out why I was so discouraged, trying to put my finger on the one thing that was making me so ugly. And the Lord showed me. Satan has been kickin' my rear this week, and I let him. I am such an easy target. He is not very creative, he goes for the same attack nearly every time. And I fall for it. He gives me a lie, and I let it set there and fester. He gives me a little discouragement and I dwell on it. Really he does very little, just puts thoughts in my head and I do the rest.
But today the sun is shining. My circumstances have not changed, but my attitude has. I am thankful for a God who pulls us out of the pit. I am grateful for friends who see me in the pit and inquire and try to pull me out. I need you guys. Thanks for being true friends.
Have I mentioned that I love Jeremy Camp?
