4 For the LORD takes delight in his people;
he crowns the humble with salvation.

Psalm 149:4 NIV

6 When I felt secure, I said,
"I will never be shaken."

7 O LORD, when you favored me,
you made my mountain c]">[c] stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.

Psalm 30:6-7 NIV .

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2

Today for Psalm Saturday I wanted to talk about how God has humbled me over the last few days.

I have been experiencing difficulty with Emma at night time. This hasn't made me a very nice person to be around the last few days. I have been tired and frustrated at not being able to make her do what I want her to. I have felt bitterness, anger, and complained about my lot as a mum.

Do you ever feel like you have it all together? I did for a while there and was beginning to feel quite proud of myself as a mum! How wrong was I? In a matter of minutes these feelings crumbled around me as I quickly learnt that I am really just a sinner saved by the grace of God. My sinful nature will never go and boy has God reminded me of this recently!

I have learnt a few home truths about myself over the last few days thanks to God. The lessons He teaches us aren't always the easiest or pain free but they are for our own good. I am grateful to God that He wants to shape and mould me into the Christian He wants me to be.

My prayer today is that God continues to humble me, teach me, discipline me and in all of this I am thankful that He still loves me despite my failings.


  1. This is a beautiful as always post! No matter what we go through God teaches us something and does it for a reason. We can always count on him. What a wonderful God he is! Have a blessed Saturday

  2. Collette,
    Thank you, again, for sharing. Psalm Saturday is very important to me. I am praying for you.

  3. Praise the Lord that His mercies are new every morning. I love how the Lord will reveal things to us, but also allows us to repent. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!

  4. DOn't think that any of us ever have it all together. And just when we think we do? God shows us otherwise. Pride is replaced with humility.

    Great post today Collette!

  5. Oh girl how I sound like we had the same type of week!

  6. I knew the Scottish girls would come out of the woodwork sooner or later! No, I didn't know!

    Having children, in general, is a very humbling God-dependent thing, but ever moreso when they are not sleeping. You're doing better than I would at this point. I'd be laying on the floor crying. I need sleep, and there's no happy mothering without it.

  7. Praying that you have a wonderful week. I think God has the most luck humbling me through my children some days. I know how you are feeling and it isn't easy, but luckily tomorrow is a new day! Hope you are doing good, I have not had a lot of time to be on the computer lately.


It is always lovely to hear from my readers and I enjoy all you have to share!
