Am I cursed or blessed?

Pin It Now! The Lord's curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.
Proverbs 3:33

I'm so glad scripture is here to remind me that God truly wants to bless me. Not because of my own righteousness of course, but because He sees His Son when he looks at me.

Blinded by all of my trials and tribulations, I tend to think God has either forgotten me or put me on His naughty list and is out to get me. Blinded by the message that I deserve and should have all the comforts and pleasures this world has to offer, I forget that God cares more about making me holy than making me happy.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:2-4

Blessings aren't necessarily material as my heart often desires for them to be. In fact they are a curse to many. I am sure if I had all of the worldly pleasures my heart desires, I'd be as wicked, selfish, and snobby as

Draco Malfoy!!

I just love that name. If I had a dog I'd name it Malfoy. Only problem is I don't want anymore messes around the house right now. Don't want to potty train a mutt and a toddler at the same time. The dog would probably get it down a whole heck of a lot faster than my toddler, though!!
