Over the course of this week, I have been going over my small group study materials daily and it has been about temptations. Then my verse for today pretty much snapped this into perspective to me. 1 Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man."
My Scripture for today is 1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. A few things occurred to me after reading this. The first thing that went through my mind was why would anyone turn down the gift of eternity just to have a moment of pleasure? Eternal perfection versus one moment that only seems perfect.
Wow, I am so happy that I am feeling better today. Thank God for His healing hands on my body today! I slept in because I did not sleep well last night, so everything in my day was pushed back. This made me a very busy girl. I seem to thrive when I am busy though, which is great!
Today has been an amazing day. Bible Study in the morning, Overcomer course in the evening, and then coffee with my Aunt and Uncle who are in town. What an amazing day! I am really looking forward to Wednesdays. The only downfall is that each one of these groups has assigned daily homework. This is both good and bad. I have a lot on my plate, however I believe I can still do all of this. God will give me the strength to do everything He has called me to do.
I did my devotions right when I woke up. It was profound and there were several things that were upsetting me and making me frustrated and I kept going back to the verse. It is so great that God always gives us what we need when we need it.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
