My mom and I were talking this morning and she reminded me of this verse:
God is not the one to only gives good. He uses adversity to teach us many different things.
I’ve been struggling as you know with this roach situation. Now it’s starting to affect the calm of my autistic child. It’s literally killing me. But I have to learn to accept this and commit it to God.
I need to learn to be grateful that this is not a major infestation. I need to learn to focus only on the goodness of God and his daily mercies.
Cause of course there’s going to be bad times. Of course. But that doesn’t change how God is continuously protecting us and changing and blessing our lives.
Lord forgive me for losing sight of you. Please forgive me for my anxious thoughts, forgive me for my fears and doubts. I praise you Lord for your goodness. I praise you Lord for always being there when I needed you. I thank you Lord this is not worse. I thank you Lord that you are granting the peace and grace needed to wait for the exterminator. I ask you that you would grant the exterminator wisdom, grace and understanding. That he would be diligent, determined, an experienced expert who’s so efficient and effective that these critters will never come back. Lord I also ask that you would help us find a good house to move to and that we would sell the house in Maryland so we can afford to move. I commit this house, our old house and every situation to you. Cause I know you are the only one to handle this. I praise you in this long storm we have been in for you are good.
