The good life…

by Lisa on October 28, 2010

Life is good, these days.  I was at bible study this morning, and the prayer request sheet came to me.  (We write our prayer requests down and then our leader emails them out, so we can pray for each other, during the week.)  Well, for a while I have had nothing of true significance to list.  I think that is so great.  It seems we had struggles for so long, regarding my husbands job, where we will live, God’s plan for our family….. it is nice to have no major concerns.  Do you know what I mean?

But, in these moments of contentment, there is a chance of becoming too comfortable.  I find, during these times, I forget to keep thanking God for all that is good.  It’s easy to turn to God when things are bad.  There is lots of constant prayer.  But, when all is well – am I still leaning on God?  Am I still looking to Him to meet all my needs?

Thank you, Lord, for continuing to provide for my family, for keeping my marriage strong, for the health of my daughter,  for the Christian women you have brought into my life – in our new town, for the wonderful church you led us to, for my husbands’ employment……. the list can go on and on and on..

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.   Revelation 4:8b

You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory , and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.  Revelation 4:11

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing; “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” Revelation 5:13

Thank you, Lord.

-Amen.

My friend, Liz from Texas, is currently writing a daily post about being grateful.  Her posts made me recognize my need to write this post.  Thanks, Liz.  I hope you will go visit her blog.  She is a wonderful, godly woman.

that’s a great post!! we do often forget that God is good all the time…when things are going bad and when things are going good. Everything that happens in the life of a Christian has the stamp of God’s approval on it and that means we often have to take the bad with the good. I am just so thankful that God is faithful to us even when we aren’t to Him!!! Have a great weekend!!

Amen. I too had a realization of God’s grace ON my family. He is. Here is the link to my blog on this http://stellar107.blogspot.com/2010/11/give-praise-thanksgiving.html .I used you ‘blessed with grace’ on this post because His grace is everything we need. 🙂

Be blessed!

Oh this is so true. The times of true need keeps us leaning of Jesus. It’s easy to trust in ourselves when things are going well. Sometimes we need reminders of yours to keep us on track. Thank you for reminding me.
