Something in the air yesterday.....

So....yesterday started with a bang, one of those days where it's 9am and you would like to just go back to bed just so the day will be over. God teaches us to have grace, patience, to be kind, think well of others....
I have to say I think I failed yesterday with flying colors. I'm so glad my salvation isn't based on one day....or the worst day we can have and how we react to it. I was on FB a couple of times yesterday and it seemed I wasn't the only one feeling attacked. There were a handfull of people posting about feeling attacked. Interesting. I don't know where all of you stand, but I believe in demons and spiritual warfare. Yesterday was one of those days I was imagining being able to see em all, cuz I swear they were wreaking havoc.
I am so glad that I am more than a conquerer in Christ. I'm so glad there is power in the name of Jesus. And I'm so glad that whatever life throws at me and my family, that we have the power and choice to rise above it, to think on the positive and know that as bad as it get's, God always has the best in mind.
                           He always has us in mind.
He can take a mess and make it beautiful. I've seen it happen so many times.  They are like little testimonies to myself, so when things get bad I can look back and remind myself of how bad things have gotten before and I made it through then....and that I can make it through this time too. :-)
Time to learn what I needed to learn from yesterday's experience and move on.....

Sometimes I hate this quote, but it's so good. "God is more concerned about our character than our comfort"....oh and, "Just because something is hard, doesn't mean it's bad~ Just because something is easy doesn't mean it's good"
I believe God brings us through things to help us grow. I want to grow. :)
