Why Me Lord?!

Have you EVER asked yourself this question - Why me Lord?  Do you ever have one of those days where it seems as though everything you touch or come into contact with turns to mush?  Maybe it is a day where the kids are screaming and the only word in their vocabulary that day is 'mom' and it is being repeated every two seconds.  Or is it a day where you can't find your keys or cell phone.  Perhaps it is a day when your spouse has said something that hurt your feelings and instead of talking about it with them, you allow yourself to sulk all day and become more miserable by the minute.  Possibly, it is a day where the balance in your checkbook will never cover the bills that are due?  Do you ever have these kind of days?

God doesn't waste anything!  God uses this kind of stuff to grow us if we have willing hearts and attitudes.  He turns our 'Mess' into our 'Message'.  This may be the stuff that drives us crazy but this is the stuff that He uses to get our attention in our daily lives.  Francesca Battistelli has a song that ministers to so many and it is one of my absolute favorites!  On the days when I want to throw my hands and give up, I can always find encouragement from this song.  Watch, listen, enjoy, and be encouraged if you are having one of those days! 

James 1: 2-7   2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

Too Blessed to be Stressed!
