My Mom has always said that. I think she got it from this old country music song.
Listen to it as you read.
It came to my mind this morning when I woke up on the “Stoney” side of attitude.
I had a sweet conversation yesterday with a ministry sister who was having a very BAD week, and it was only Tuesday.
A few weeks ago, she was walking the streets of New York, enjoying twinkling lights and cozy moments. Over the next few weeks, she would be wined and dined and treated like royalty at the grand opening of a 5 Star Hotel.
This week, she is holding sick kids, working on broken down cars, dealing with LIFE.
I can relate. Some weeks/days/hours make us feel like we are on top of the world.
Last week, I was being treated like a Queen in Alaska. Seeing God everywhere. A true spiritual high!
This week, I have run head on into the trap of “blah-blah-blah”. You know a BAD-Grouchy MOOD!
Don’t act like you don’t ever do that!!
The kind where you feel like you can’t get anything right. You can’t get NO respect (or maybe that’s SATISFACTION) (at least I still have songs on my mind 🙂 Life is just not going your way??
Before openning my Bible this morning, I poured it all out to God. I just told Him the truth. He knew it anyway. He always cares. He cares when we feel good and when we feel bad. He just cares. Then, He speaks. He leads. He teaches. He corrects.
My journaling through the Bible had me at Genesis 39-41 The story of Joseph–Pit to Palace to Prison back to Palace.
I was reminded again….
While Joseph was in the Pit—God was there.
While Joseph was in the Palace–God was there.
While Joseph was in the Prison–God was there.
The Word says “God gave him success in whatever he did”.
Just a few days ago, life sparkled like diamonds, today , I woke up in the pit. Wuz up wit dat??
It is true, “Some Days are Diamonds–Some Days are Stones”.
The good new is….God had His grip on both.
Lord, I want to bloom where I am planted–in the pit or in the palace, in the diamonds and in the stones.
Let my REFLECTION—always be focused you.
Let my RESPONSE–always be focused you.
Let my RESULT–always be focused on you.
How about YOU??? Is TODAY a Diamond or a Stone?
