This post will be much shorter than my normal weekend posts - much more like one of the shorter weekday posts. What hit me this week is very simple - and similar to something I posted near the beginning of my New Year's Resolution focus.
I have done SO much better this week as I have dealt with our little twinkie and her siblings. This month's resolution has been on my mind all week (really all month), and it is making a difference. It hit me again how much the Lord can, wants to and will help us when we focus on becoming like Him - that the simple act of focusing our will and our very thoughts on what He has asked of us opens a link to power and perspective that doesn't come in any other way.
I knew that prior to this week; I have felt it many times in my life in many ways; it is sweet, however, to rediscover things that have been discovered previously - to have reinforced what has been strengthened in other ways in the past. What struck me this week particularly is that He will help us not ONLY with our weak things but also with our strengths. That is a cool thing to know.
He really does see and understand our hearts, and He really does stand with arms outstretched still. All we need to do is place our faith and hope and trust in Him and what He was commanded.
