At times I am such a simpleton---truly slow and hard-headed. I have been going through a very difficult time with a family member in the last year, and the last two months have been particularly trying. On most days I find myself treading water, barely keeping my head above the deluge that constantly washes over me. I have begun to claim as my mantra, "Walk by faith, not by sight." How easy it is to say. It's more difficult to do.
This morning I was on one of my regular blogs and saw this posting from the owner: "In what ways am I slow of heart and foolish?
1. Letting discouragement bring me down
2. Listening to doubts instead of truth
4. Letting my mind wander instead of focusing on Jesus."
I messaged this sweet lady that I believe God meant that for me. It truly resonated with me. I should probably have it tattooed onto my brain or forehead.
