Peter denied the one he was so eager to protect. And Jesus was rejected by someone He was about to suffer and die for. Someone He loved. It reminds me of the times Jesus has had to watch me make poor decisions after He has already warned me. But even when we waver, God's love for us does not.
Multiple times this year, I've found myself in moments and situations when something I'd planned and worked so hard for, just didn't quite work out. It seemed like no matter how hard I prayed or prepared, God allowed doors to remain closed. I embraced the simple truth that no matter how hard you knock, God will not open a door you are not supposed to walk through.
When I first heard of green smoothies, I thought they looked a little weird. And I was reluctant to try them. But after finally tasting one, I found they were actually pretty good. I've experimented quite a bit, but this has been my staple green smoothie recipe for the past 3 years.
I can't believe it's already August! This year has flown by so fast... with the exception of January, which felt like 3 months. And it feels like summer only lasted 20 minutes. However, I'm excited about what the month of August holds, including my blog tour! Yes, I'm on tour.
Don't worry, I'm not here to share 24 things I've learned in the past year 🙂 However, I am appreciative of God's blessings and this year I wanted to celebrate in a different way.
