Let God be the Guardrail of your life!

1 Corinthians 13:6-8 (New International Version)

6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Psalm 40:10-12 (New International Version)

10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
I speak of your faithfulness and salvation.
I do not conceal your love and your truth
from the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD;
may your love and your truth always protect me.

12 For troubles without number surround me;
my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
They are more than the hairs of my head,
and my heart fails within me.

To know that God is the Guardrail of my life as long as I ALLOW Him to be just amazes me. No matter what I've done to Him. No matter of the sins I've committed, He will still protect me. Never forget that, never get to the point to where you think that you have been overtaken by sin, so much, that He will not allow you back on His path. I know many times people think they aren't worthy due to the sins they have committed against Him. And that is what sends them on the continued spiral downward!

Just remember, all you have to do is to ask Him for forgiveness and Allow Him to be the Guardrail of your life once again. Set limits and go to Him to help you stick to those limits. Whether it be for love, friendship, family or whatever, set limits and do not lower yourself or go past the limits you have set. You are worthy!

Today I'm grateful for:

Being spoken to by Him. This may not make sense to anyone but me, but it was spoken to me and I feel it's my duty to share. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me. Allow Him to be the guardrail of your life. This does not mean that your life will be without blemishes but it does mean that life even with the blemishes will go a lot smoother and you will come out of the trials stronger than if you had went in alone.

Being encouraged. Seeing others being courageous and going through what they do, gives me strength. Some don't even know how much their words mean to me. How encouraging they are. I just hope to be an encouragement to those around me. To withstand my trials and show wisdom and strength so that they too will gain something from it. It makes it all seem worth it, if what you go through touches someones life, that is my goal! To allow my life to touch someone else's. I know that I withstood my trials for a reason, God has kept me here for a reason, so it is up to me to make sure that I fulfill His reason for keeping me here!

Dreams only being dreams. I am changing and I know this. Yet the devil tries in every way possible to get me back down. I saw the old me in a dream last night and woke up with the fears that I once had. But instead of allowing the devil in, I spoke against him. I know I'm doing better than I was and I am not going to allow him to sink me back down to that person.

Rainy days. Finally, maybe the mugginess will disappear after today. I can stand the heat but the humidity just about kills ya. Instead of letting the rain get me in a bad mood as it usually does, I came against it. I got out there in it at 720 am, Huge Umbrella in hand, carting the girls to the car! I came in and was smiling. I shocked myself. Thank God for HUGE umbrellas.

Patience. Last night, as I was just about to doze off, I hear "MOOOOOOMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYY" being yelled in that "I don't feel so well voice". I had heard some noise about 10 minutes prior and thought someone was throwing up, but then it was silent, so I thought they were just dreaming. Uhm, yeah. My first intuition was correct. Caity had puked all in her bed and fell back asleep. It was very odd. No fever or anything. She felt fine. And instead of me getting ill as normal, I got her in the bathroom, cleaned her up. She brushed her teeth and I started laundry-which means I had to fold a load full out of the dryer at midnight. Then I came back and scrubbed her bed. Disinfected the bathroom and got her settled.

All without getting overwhelmed and yelling like the old me would have done. I was gentle and patient, I think I'm getting the hang of this. Usually when I'm overwhelmed, I freak, spazz out.......Not this time and hopefully not in the future. Instead I breathe, step back and take on whatever life wants to through at me.

I'm with Beth: "I got this".......She inspires me!

So no matter what life throws at you allow God to be your Guardrail aka Godrail and don't get overwhelmed, he will control it all IF you have the faith in Him and ALLOW him to take over!

Hope you all have a Great Monday and week! Take whatever is thrown at you head on and smile and throw it back!

Love You All!!!
