My blog had been removed, lost.
Imagined shocked silence as I stare at the message, "This blog has been removed."
Deep intake of breath, then
First, I thank God that He gave me peace in this situation.
Second, I thank God that He helped me to pray, "Thy will be done", and mean it.
Third, I thank God that it was a Blogger glitch of some sort. They called me with a code, I put the code in, hit continue, and my blog was found!
This tested me. I passed the test and did well. Thank you for changing me, Lord.
Guess what I'm going to learn to do this week?
Yep, I'm going to learn to back up my blog!
If you read this, I do wish you'd leave me a comment.
Relieved and Blessed
I wrote that early Saturday morning. As I hit publish, the blog disappeared again! I got to practice what I preached to myself. My husband worked and worked and worked on it. Nothing worked. I prayed. I asked God to restore it. I also asked God to help me to accept it and go on even though it was going to cause some trouble with reviews. In spite of prayer, I felt a deep sense of loss, almost a mourning. What I didn't do is give into anxiety. I actually gave it all to Jesus. Thank you God. So, I did pass the test, even if I didn't get an A+. ~smile~
Thank God He doesn't require us to make an A+. He only requires us to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in Him to be saved. Saved from Hell, yes, but saved from our own sinful nature as well. Be sure you know Him so that you, too can weather the disappointments and trials of life.
God bless you!
