Katie Hornor's newest devotional book, In Spite of Myself, touched my heart right where I am. I spent the first week of this devotional in tears. Katie has a loving way to share the difficulties she's been through that God has turned into beautiful testimony. I choose praise in spite of myself through all the hard things. It's hard. I often fail and complain first. I rant and rave at the injustices. Then God wraps His arms around me and reminds me that it is all in His control. No matter what criticism, slander, rejection, isolation or betrayal I'm going through, and believe me I've gone through some terrible mudslinging, God knows. Yeshua (Jesus) received it even more undeservedly. He knows.
"Maybe you've been trying to find a song of praise in the midst of criticism, slander, rejection, isolation or betrayal? Friend, God is there. And he is standing by with his promises of peace in the storm and healing to come."

"For the Lord God is a sun and shield: The Lord will give grace and glory: No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts,
We need to be regularly reminded that God is our provision. He is our protection. He loves us and keeps His promises, always. The best way to make sure you get the reminders you need is to keep reading the Bible. God tucked promises and love notes throughout His Word. If you want to thrive instead of just survive, you can't live by bread alone, but must have the Word of God to help you and guide you.
