I am sitting here enjoying my first feeling-good day, aka no nausea medicine day, Hallelujah!! From here on out, it is better and better everyday. And, hopefully, no more cravings for bologna and chips! LOL
I got up this morning and had a wonderful bowl of oat bran, have I mentioned how much I LOVE this stuff? I smash up a banana and put in it and sprinkle the top with some cinnamon...mmmmm, delish. Then I put in a 6 mile run, half while listening to some new tunes I downloaded and half while watching my DH dvds. After I got cleaned up, I had a second breakfast and did a load of laundry. I know, exciting, right? But the highlight of my day is easily hands-down my Bible study. I have started a new one online with Beth Moore...LOVE LOVE her! It's called Living Beyond Yourself and it's amazing. She stated last week in her opening video that this series was specifically made for each of us to view at a specific time, whether it is with the audience she did the study with back in 2003 (when it was taped) or me, for example, viewing it some 6 years later. And boy do I believe it! She said something yesterday that I have already recited to several people because it holds so much hope and promise:
God's specialty is making impossibilities possible.
Ah, Sovereign Lord, of course it is! But I had to write that one down because no matter how dire or horrible a situation may seem, God is bigger than ALL OF IT! How comforting and marvelous that we serve a living God that can handle ANYTHING?! I don't know about you, but that makes me feel so.much.better. Instantly. Talk about taking a load off! And that's what He does perfectly: He takes our burdens and bears them Himself. We waste so much time and energy working, worrying, stressing, and such when all we have to do is simply BELIEVE HIM that He can handle it.
"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
Seriously, this verse, and many others, has sustained me for the last 5 months. I have just been like a sponge, soaking it all up and rejoicing in the fact that I am His Child.
