Friday, Oh Friday!

It is Friday, and I am home! Whew! This week is over! Can you hear me say, “I am blessed to be finished for the week?” No, well, let me say it louder: I AM SO BLESSED TO BE FINISHED FOR THE WEEK!  Yes, this has been a tough week, and even though nothing major happened to set me off or cause me difficulty, it just seemed like this week was a massive pain in the behind, if you get my drift? I worked my little proverbial backside off, and frankly, I am bushed, beat, and barely making it. The good news is that I am home (yay!), and that I’ve got my feet up and I am resting. Sweet praises — I am resting — and it feels so, so good! In truth, God is good to me. He is so very good to me.

It’s Been a Good Day

Today has been a good day overall. I mean, I finished my week strong (praise be to God), and I completed all the tasks and assignments set before me. I really didn’t do the work, you know…He did. He did this work through me, and as such, I give Him all the praise, the honor, and the glory. He showed up today, BIG TIME, and He made a way for me to overcome all the challenge, all the trials, and all the difficulty I was facing. He did it in such a way that I had to stand in awe of His mighty power, authority, and incredible rule over me. Yes, He did this good thing, and I am so thankful for His help. I am absolutely thankful for His amazing help.

I am ready for the weekend, and I am ready to prepped for my Monday morning conference call. I’ve got my ducks in a row, and praise be to God, I will do this defense, and it will go well for me. I feel it. I feel it in my bones as the saying goes. I absolutely feel that I will do well come Monday. Until then, however, I have a lot to do. I have work, work, work. I am ready for it. I cannot really explain it other than to say that somehow the Lord has come over me, and in that way, I am empowered to do work. I just am ready. I feel so powerful right now, and with that I mean, I feel in control, dynamic, and ready to tackle whatever comes my way.

I cannot really explain the change from this morning, though. I was beat down, worn out, and oh so very tired. Then on my way to school, I just starting to pray — and I mean — really pray, and wham! I felt the Lord’s presence, and then He just did what needed to be done. I let Him lead me through my classes, teach and reach students, and then I drove home and all the while, I was praising His name. He just showed up. I am in awe of Him, and I still feel sort of giddy, just giddy. I am always amazed when He does this for me. I don’t deserve this goodness or grace, yet, He does this anyway. He is so good to me, so very good to me.

As I close out this very short post, I simply give up a sacrifice of praise today. I thank the Lord for His goodness and His grace, and I rest now in His utter and complete sufficiency. He is good, so very good to me! Selah!
