words for me today
i received this timely devotional in my email this morning and it really touched my heart for where I stand currently with all of the Mom issues going on. you can read it for yourself in it's entirety (click on link above) but here is the snippet that really encouraged me: (thank you Marilyn Shipe)
God knows exactly what He’s doing. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did pre-destinate to be conformed to the image of his Son… God uses disappointment as a process of conforming us into the image of His Son, who is holy. He wants us to be like Jesus here on earth as much as we can. They are genuinely for our good and His glory.
Yes, i really needed to hear this today. And my heavenly Father knows that. Thank you Jesus for just the right words at just the right time.
