WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY: Mercy Wins
“If I should speak then let it be of the grace that is greater than all my sin; of when justice was served and mercy wins; of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in; to tell you my story is to tell of Him.”
I’m exhausted for some reason at the moment but blogging doesn’t stop for anyone ;).
Today’s a what I ate day, and it was a bit of a weird one.
After prayer and time in the word, I made a late breakfast of banana “ice cream,” which is just 3 bananas blended up with mango, cacao powder, and topped with blueberries, dates, and peanut butter. Krystal and I watched a few episodes of grey’s anatomy– I finished the show long ago, but she’s at my favourite part of it which is the end of season 5, so I couldn’t help it.
We spent time dancing together for a while and stretching. Afterwards, I had a lunch of 2 sweet potatoes with saver dates, and some celery on the side. We hung out with Kaitlyn for a bit, which was great, and in the afternoon I had a banana and some blueberries for a snack.
I was supposed to have my contacts appointment today, but we got a call late in the day that my eye doc was very ill and rescheduled it to Friday. I used the bit of extra team to clean, did a study in Mark, spent some time with my sisters, and some updates on the blog. For dinner, I was so hungry, and just made a big bowl of oatmeal with a banana and peanut butter.
Maddie, Bethany and Michele from my Christian Studies program are comin over for a girls’ night and hopefully some prayer about next steps under Jesus’ direction.
Sometimes our day doesn’t go as we might hope, there’s a spot of down that we have to just give to God, and we feel lost or maybe sad. All that can be said for that is Jesus’ forever victory. Being in Him and residing in His love, therefore the Holy Spirit dwelling within me and, I pray, less and less of my”SELF,”– receiving the deed He’s already done to save us means that all of those “down spots” from the enemy mean NOTHING– no matter how great he makes the content seem.
