Yesterday something happened that shook me greatly. For awhile I had a pity party for myself and kept asking God why, oh why Lord? I was shocked, hurt and felt like I was a failure. Then I remembered the story of Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah in 2 Chronicles 20. I have always loved that story and yesterday it brought me back to my senses. I realized that complaining and having a pity party was not going to get me anywhere. When trouble came to Jehoshaphat and his people in the form of 3 armies that were surrounding them preparing to attack, although he was afraid the first thing He did was to "...set his face to seek the Lord", he did not call upon his friends to help him attack his enemies neither did he moan, complain and question God - he chose to seek Him. If you read the story you will read about how God responded to the call of Jehoshaphat and his people - it is a beautiful story, one which I am taking some lessons from in my "time of trouble".
For those of you who can spare a minute or two please pray for me, I would really appreciate that. I have made up my mind to run into the strong tower of the name of the Lord were I know I am safe (Proverbs 18:10) and I am assured that all things will work together for my good (Romans 8:28).
Have a blessed Easter everyone.
