Reminder

8 mile bike ride followed by exercises from my physical therapist. In devotions I was reminded again of something I need reminding often.

When I came to the office, I heard something unusual. I traced it down and found one of our water fountains was showering water, and had created a flood. At the same moment, the carpet cleaning crew arrived, that had been scheduled, by divine coincidence and they helped clean up the mess. With help, fans and sunshine a disaster was averted. The reminder verse was:

All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil (by anxious thoughts and forebodings), but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast (regardless of circumstances). Pro. 15: 15 amp.

By grace, the flood didn't prompt me to mutter grumblings, but they were forming in my head. The scripture reminds that our days can be made evil by our anxious thoughts and forebodings, not the circumstances.

Lord, I appreciate this kind of reminders, and just in time. Forgive me for the muttering grumblings that were beginning to form, and help me and others keep a glad heart regardless of circumstances.
