Day 34 - June 9, 2012

Though the Lord is exalted, He takes note of the humble; but He knows the haughty from a distance. Psalm 138:6

Growing up I enjoyed being in control of myself. I cultivated a logical mindset and pushed myself hard. In college, I had to learn humility and reliance on God the hard way. At one point, I had joint pain so bad I could hardly walk and the doctors couldn't find out why. I wasn't in control any more.

Self-sufficiency will kill the Christian in more ways than one. Being our loving Father, God will do whatever it takes to slow us down and get us reliant on Him. I give Him all the glory for that. What is God using in our lives and in our church right now to slow us down and refocus us? Let's praise Him for our struggles and for His provision in the midst of them. God's love never fails. Thanks be to God!

God's peace,

Erin
