? on Friday

Normally Fridays around here are for the top five highlights of my week.

Well, I gotta be honest, I don’t even know if I can come up with two highlights from this week.

It was a doozy.

I have never felt so defeated or under-appreciated at my job, but this week,  I felt both of those things each and every day. It is not a good feeling and it’s hard to not let those things spill over into my home life. I felt I was short-fused with my family when I got home and felt down on myself in other areas as well.

And that’s not fair.

Luckily, I have a Savior who I can call on in weeks like these. Weeks when I feel angry at people. When I am unhappy with decisions made. When I am disrespected. When people take advantage. When people are rude. When things just get plain ugly.

God is there, he sees me and my pain. He sees it all and he is for me. I love Kari Jobe’s song “You Are For Me” I’m not always very good at listening to song lyrics and letting them soak in but for some reason this song has always really spoken to me.

God is for me, he does not forsake me in my weakeness and He is always reminding me of who He is and what He can do.

My week was rough, but God is still good.

Also, 4 1/2 days until Christmas Break.

Amen!

“You Are For Me” Kari Jobe

So faithful
So constant
So loving and so true
So powerful in all You do

You fill me
You see me
You know my every move
You love for me to sing to You

I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never
Forsake me in my weakness

And I know that You have come now
Even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You are

So patient
So gracious
So merciful and true
So wonderful in all You do

You fill me
You see me
You know my every move
You love for me to sing to You

Lord, I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never
Forsake me in my weakness

And I know that You have come now
Even if to write upon my heart
To remind me that…

I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never
Forsake me in my weakness

And I know that You have come now
Even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You are

You remind me

I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never
Forsake me in my weakness

And I know that You have come now
Even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You are

    I’m officially jealous of your Christmas break. Ours starts like two days before Christmas. I won’t have my minions here to help clean much and we host! Love the poem though.
