Grace For "Those Days"

Some days it's easy to rejoice, to praise, to worship, to be thankful.  Some days, though, we have to choose to praise and rejoice.  And some days it just seems almost impossible.

On the days when pain won't go away, when friends get bad news, when the interruptions to our plans just seem to pile up like leaves in the fall, when kids are grumpy and mom is grumpier...on those days we have the opportunity to live grace in action as a testimony for those around us...even if it is only the people inside our homes...to see.  He gives grace to redeem those days. He gives grace to stop and pray for that redemption.  He gives grace to praise and worship and rejoice and be thankful in and through and in spite of and even because of those days.

So thankful for those days that God uses to remind me how much I need His grace!  And for the assurance that His plans are perfect, and His ways always better than mine!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. 
 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~Isaiah 55:8-9
