God Knew...Imagine That!

I know that in hard times our true character is revealed. Going through the illness and death of a parent qualifies as a hard time. But being personally attacked by friends over memorial decisions was even harder for me.

God chose for me three verses to focus on this year. Psalm 55:22b, "Cast your cares upon the LORD for He cares for you." I didn't do that. In my hurt and pain, I whined to humans. I didn't take it to God.

I spoke unkindly about those who hurt me, totally ignoring the second verse God gave me, 1 Timothy 3:11b, "...be a woman worthy of respect, not a malicious talker, but temperate and trustworthy in everything."

My third verse from God is 1 Timothy 4:7b, "...train yourself to be godly." Imagine that! God knew exactly what I needed to do to overcome these sins, faults and character flaws.

Thank you Lord for revealing to me how desperately I need to memorize the verses that You gave to me this year, and cling to them in hard times rather than choose a path of sin when I am weak. Please help me be faithful to memorize them and apply them in order to walk in godliness.
