Yesterday, my sweet hearted husband felt terrible because he didn’t say “happy birthday” until later in the afternoon. His co-workers were giving him grief about how bad things were going to be when he got home.
Did the thought cross my mind that he had forgot my birthday? Yes. Over and over it did, and each time I decided to think about something else. Each time I decided to think about how much my husband loves me, how much fun we have together each day, and how blessed I am to be married to such an amazing guy. Because I’m amazing like that? No! Because I’ve spent the past year digging in God’s Word and finding my worth in him. Because I knew that giving away my joy to something so small and allowing my day to be ruined was just silly. It wasn't worth it.
He came home with this colorful cookie cake and I smiled, “Um?”
He shook his head and said, “I know. Apparently it’s just not my day. I even told the lady how to spell it and she still added an ‘h’. I didn’t have the heart to correct here after she held it up and told me that it was her best job yet.”
Why am I sharing all this? Because life doesn’t always go the way we plan. Sometimes you get a rogue ‘h’ that crosses your path. That ‘h’ can cause a whole lot of destruction if your life is not grounded on the solid rock (God). God doesn’t say everything is going to go well, always. In fact, Jesus said over and over that there would be bad times.
We shouldn't sit down and feel sorry for ourselves because someone forgot to say something to us. We've got to find our worth in God. What is He saying about us?
Throwing away you joy over a little 'h' is SO not worth it. Find your worth in God so when those 'h's present themselves you can smile, swipe it off, lick it, and move on!
