Nov. 25- Church this morning
Sunday, November 25, 2018
So the last couple weeks, I feel like there are a lot of things I’ve heard at church that were meant for me right now. Last Sunday, I was with my family and the lesson was about how sometimes our plans fail and sometimes God just wants us to wait for His plans. This morning at my Sunday school our lesson was about how God can use anyone, even people who have screwed up (hearing that always makes me feel better!). And I had my youth group today. We only meet every other week so two weeks ago, we started on Christmas stuff. Today we talked about Mary and Joseph and we talked for quite awhile about Mary’s reaction when she was told she was going to have a baby, which undoubtedly would’ve been hard for her to hear- “My soul magnifies the Lord”. I feel that being diagnosed with diabetes at this point- maybe God wants to be a good example. I grew up in a home where we didn’t have much but my parents hid it well. They divorced when I was ten, and for the next couple of years, I had to make a lot of adjustments. My mom had always been at home, but she had to get a job, leaving me responsible for my sister after school and unattended. So, we ate whatever we wanted after school. My dad is a nice guy but reacted to the divorce by trying to give us whatever we wanted- food, sweets, toys. Years and years later, I still struggle with what to eat and when. I want my nieces, and my sister and her husband, and my husband to have someone who can set a good example, and maybe that can be me!
