Dear Mean Girl,
What do you think is at the heart of your meanness? Maybe fear?
I understand. More than that, God understands and He wants to heal your heart and help you learn to trust Him in all those hard places.
But, you must spend time with Him.....Maybe you already knew that, it doesn't change the fact that, that is exactly what you need.....
Curl up on God's lap and let Him heal you.

"God daily loads us with benefits." Psalm 68:19
My brain knows this intellectually, but I still fail to acknowledge them as blessings and instead reason out why a particular thing has happened.
I dismantle them and search for the meaning and make small the precious gifts I have been given, and even wonder if it was from God.
In short, I listen to my own thoughts more than I rely on God's.
This week, I will receive God's blessings and acknowledge they are from my Father in heaven, Abba, my Savior, my Redeemer, my Rock and Hiding Place.

so many things go through the mind at Mothers Day......
Wednesday evening we took a look at the Book of Ruth. Naomi, Ruth's mother-in-law had to face some very tough situations. Her husband and sons died, one of her daughter-in-laws returned to her former gods..... Coming back into Bethlehem Judah, the people couldn't even recognize her. Life had been harsh and hard.
Many times, I think we feel like Naomi. Life just hurts so much and we are no longer the carefree youth we once were. We want to sit down and sulk in our hardships.
But listen, He was not finished with Naomi, and He isn't finished with you.
Everyday is a chance to be a difference maker for someone. Someone to nurture,
Someone to encourage, someone listen, someone to be there.
Mothers Day is a great reminder of the responsibilities we have as Mothers.
Not just for your children, but to nurture those around us.
14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.
15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.
you've got this,

Reading Genesis 4:6, "And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?"
So many times going through my day, I have an idea or expectation of how it's going to go. And then absolutely nothing turns out as planned.....imagine that!
Notice my words "My idea, my expectations", it is so easy to get discouraged and focused on how things should have gone, and how much better it all would have been if only it was done the way I had planned. And then, my response shows all over my face, my body language, my attitude, my heart!
Cain too, had an idea. It wasn't the one God had in mind.......and instead of just changing his expectation of what he thought a sacrifice should be, he eliminated the competition. He killed his brother. God noticed......all of it. The bad attitude, the degusted look on his face, the dark heart.
Listen, I understand our intention isn't usually to kill someone😏, but a bad response can kill a lot of things. It can break a spirit in a child, it can cause a husband to feel disrespected, and I feel like a heel
.........and on, and on......
Genesis 4:7, says "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?"
And so what is the answer?......easy peasy, take your eyes off yourself and chill out.👀😄
