Stay Cool! God Bless











{April 3, 2007}   Chapter 1

I first want to apologize for the delay in posting my response for Chapter 1.  I had mid-terms last week.  Yuck.  God pulled me through though.

As I read chapter one, it brought back some memories I have worked hard at forgetting.  Not only did my mom say similiar things, but my dad too.  I have also thought of hopelessness when it comes to money due to the way I was raised.  All my life money has came and went.  What I mean is that I have been at the top of the ladder with success and the money and down at the bottom again.  I also realized that my spiritual walk also went up and down like a roller coaster ride.  I believe that when my spiritual life is stable and I am constantly seeking after HIM, then all else will smooth out.  It will not be perfect, but it will be better to the point that we (my boys and myself) don’t worry about the lttle things.

As the scripture the author used Deuteronomy 28:8 "The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you."

That scripture may mean something different to you, and it may have meant something different to the author.  To me it means that God does not want us to live in our struggles.  If we allow Him, He will bring us out of them making us stronger.  As children our knowledge is limited, and we tend to fumble and fall.  An infant who is attempting to crawl and falls down, we as mothers lift the infant up back on his knees and help the infant to crawl.  That is basically what God does with us in our life when he pulls us out of our struggles.

Today, I no longer worry about the piles of unopened bills on my counter.  I only hope God will deliver me in time before all is lost.  After reading this chapter, I realize that all I have is because God has provided it and His timing is always perfect.  As the gentleman in the book goes to help rescue a small church, a door of opportunity is opening and will present itself for me in time.  As it will for all of you.
