I heard someone say lately that most people don't need to be taught new concepts, rather they need to be reminded of the things they already know. It sounds too simple. So simple it could not be true. But I've found it to be so true yet again.

My last blog was a vent, maybe even a rant. I was just mad. I guess I was making some pathetic attempt to be mad at God, but I know God so well now that I can't do that anymore. It's just illogical and I know it down to my core. I'm sure I was mad at myself because I did the same thing again. I put my head down and bulled forward with a "good idea" to build God's kingdom without asking for God's help. Sure I prayed some fleeting prayers for God's blessing on the 7 project, but did I make prayer the base of all that effort? Not even close.

So, I'm reminded again. When we work, we work . . . but when we pray, God works. I am again left staring in the face of my own arrogance and I feel peacefully shamed. I'm going outside on this peaceful morning to pray. I love my God and I know He loves me.
