Still Learning

My quiet time Scripture reading this morning was 2 Corinthians 10-13. In the first ten verses of 2 Corinthians 12, Paul talks about how he learned the lesson of the suffiency of grace. Paul learned that all he really needed in life was the grace of God.

That made me think of a couple verses I will be preaching on this coming Sunday evening:

Philippians 4:6-7 NKJ Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Then I thought of my blog laments about how frustrating this house process has become and how anxious I am to have some resolution. (It's pretty embarrassing when we sin so publically.)

I confessed. I followed the instructions in Philippians 4:6. God fulfilled his promise given in Philippians 4:7. I'm through with my anxious complaining. There will be no 'House Saga IV' blog post.

Lesson learned... for now.
