VBS Day 1 - Remember...sometimes you've got to say...Oh well!

Well I've got no photos...no scripture popping in my head...
not much of anything...
just life happening...

VBS started today and it was awesome.  The enemy tried to derail me using his the best from his arsenal...and I was just about the board THAT train when a very "wise" women told me to just say...

Oh well!

Now that's hilarious...because I've been trying to teach one of my sons the same thing.  Things will happen in life that you don't plan and all you can say is...

Oh well!

When she told me that...I knew it was God letting me know...
last time I checked...
"I'm God and you're Lorrie.."
"Bring glory to me."

Well the children learned today that Peter did more in the way of fishing when he followed the instructions of Christ.  

We have God's word right in front of us...but we don't always seem to follow it for our own lives.  We struggle through events, people, and family trying to do things our own way, often getting derailed by not staying on track. (oh boy...I'm taking the train thing just too far!  Woo woo!)

Jesus is simply saying...

"put your nets on the other side of the boat..." Put your faith in me...
not what you've done previously.
but in me.

Let's be believers that follow Christ...

in 

word.

deed..

and attitude...

and when things don't go as planned...and we haven't brought in the big fish...yet...

remember to just say...

"Oh well! God's got better plans!"

Blessings.

Oh yes girlfriend! It can be a hard road sometimes, but when we finally see what he intended we often realize it was a better plan. I think of my adoption vs getting pregnant....His plan for adoption was a blessing!

So true!

I pray the Holy Spirit continues to give wisdom and strength each day! And like Peter, may we follow His instruction.

Love!
