I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.(Psalms 3:5)

I read that today, and was reminded that each day that we wake up is another gift from God. No matter what life is throwing at you, God is there to get you through that! My life is in God's hands and not mine, he controls that and I love him for it. Really I do, I just can't seem to be content with everything that He has given me. How can I be so ungrateful?


  1. I wonder the same for myself. I spent four years grumbling about being in Nothingnowhere, Arkansas. Now I wish I were back there, in spite of all the things I see and learn here.

    What should we do, Courtney?

  2. I feel ya girl. I was reading a book by Leslie Ludy this week...and it said "Am I Enough." That hit me like a ton of bricks...because my honest answer was "No!" I want my family and my friends and my grades and my security...I want it all. That's something I'm having to work on right now. God is good, isn't he? He never stops loving us, even when we are ungrateful. I love you girl...and I'm praying for you. Thank you for your constant encouragement in my life. I am forever grateful.
