God is just what we need

I was in California recently at CCEA and Bob made the comment "We need to get our eyes on Jesus and ourselves at his feet" it seemed so simple and a no brainer but why don't I always do that? He also talked about how deeply God feels our pain. Then the tough question "Why do we make our problems bigger than what they are and God smaller than who he is?" WOW! that was a painful one for me I don't mean to do that but it hit me in the heart and I realized how much I do do that. My prayer for myself is to get my eyes on Jesus, myself at his feet, never minimize how big he is and to listen more and speak less. God I am so sorry the simple things I have know my whole life I so easily forget. Thank you Lord for the gentle reminders.

I am blessed

Today as I watched the news about the two helicopters that crashed I began to pray for their family and friends that God would give them comfort during such a difficult time. I began thinking of my family & friends and how I would feel if it was any of them, it made me realize how truly blessed I am. I have an amazing family and great friends. I feel so blessed and just hope they realize what a blessing they all are to me. Thank you Lord for my many blessings.
