God is Greater...

Some days I just feel like I am really hearing the voice of God in my life and then other days I am deafened by the silence… I know God stays the same, so I know it is me. Do any of you have that problem?… I would think any human being does. I know that some days I seek after God more than other days… I let myself get off track by circumstances and distractions around me... people just going on about stuff that is not important in the scheme of eternity.  I am not saying that in a condemning way, just speaking real life. The great thing is God knows my heart… He knows me way better than I know myself.

I love these verses in I John 3:17-21 “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.” I have TRUTH living in me… that does not waiver from feeling to feeling… that does not change as my emotions change. I am a fairly emotional person, so I am so amazed God gave me all these emotions as a very important part of me, but He also gave me His Truth to be able to control my emotions and not act or react based on my emotions. I don’t always find that very easy to do, so on the days when I “feel” off track I just need to hang on to the Truth I have living in me.

I have a journal to share with you today... I made this for my hubby. I used embossing folders with the Cuttlebug, heat embossing, and I cut the Fleur De Li's out on my Cricut.  He seemed to really like it.
Well, that is it for today... with a grateFUL HEART, carin
