Just a thought

Let's not judge one another, let God do the judging.

Giving it up



With missions weighing heavily on my heart these last weeks or so, I'm reminding myself to pray diligently as to what I can give up to help me reach my goal of helping with the missions I have on my heart. 

Now don't let the photo confuse you, I don't plan on giving up all of those and to be honest there are quite a few on there that I don't even partake in.  It's a good photo though, right? It's not mine, but I liked it.  It fit. 

I know this isn't all educational and even very interesting, I'm sorry for that. It wouldn't be a blog of mine if it didn't contain some of my ramblings from time to time.
 Be blessed yall.

what a beautiful name it is


I don't have much to add tonight. 

Praising Jesus for another beautiful day in this life.  

I stumbled upon a song that's definitaly laid on my heart.  

"What a beautiful name it is"


He's been so good to me, and every word of this is true. His name is Holy and beautiful and no one can compare to Him.

Oh Lord, lead me

Good afternoon friends

I'm here permanently for some time, only the Lord can lead me as to how long. 

I've recently picked up the incentives to post daily about my life and my daily going ons. I've made the decision to abandon the old MB indefinitely.  
Again, it's where the Lord shall lead me.

I'm praying for strength and the words to keep this going for some time.  I'm back at taking my online courses for Biblical Studies, last night was my first night singing in our church choir. No one threw tomatoes at me either.  Today my goal was to work on this as well as my daily writings that I've fallen behind on, but my computer is so slow right now due to irregular use I assume. I pray it gets better, there isn't anything more frustrating than trying to access multiple sites as well as compose papers and projects on a machine that simply isn't up for the challenge.
  
I'm still the head of the nursery at church, currently we still have quite a few small children to take care of . The twins are two now!  Eastley is 5.  He's doing wonderfully in our children's programs as well, the children's ministry is really wonderful right now.  The new couple is really doing great things with it.  
My next steps are to get into the missions team at church.  Missions has been on my heart for some time now and while I know deep down that I probably can't go to Africa, I secretly wish the Lord would send me and that my family would go with me too.  They look at me like I have 6 heads when I jokingly (seriously secretly) mention it to them.  
Seriously, how do you want and desire something like that and feel it within your heart that you want to do something like that and your family not be on board.  The struggle is real.  The missionary at church said something last night that really stuck with me. He said to start where you are NOW!  Do something where you are.  I really liked that and I really want to do something NOW. I'm going to start with the missions team at my own church.  I'm not telling you this for any reason other than to just talk right now.  I'm going on and on and I should stop and save some thoughts for another day, but they're flowing right now so I'm rolling with it.
Thanks for hanging in this far... 
We really are blessed, where we are at.  I'm hoping and praying to become the person I'm meant to be. I want a calling, I want to find my calling. I want to be all that I can be, for Jesus Christ. 
  
So, it's with this I will leave you for today.  Again, prayers for you all and please pray for me as well.  Thank you  and God bless. 

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through 
the redemption that is in Jesus Christ:"
Romans 3:23-24

Thoughts and Renewed thinking



On a personal note: 
It's been so long since I've posted here, been so long since I've opened it up. 

This is one that's been bothering me lately, I feel I can share. 

One of the bad sides of being a regular church goer is when you start to feel like no one really notices you are there anymore, even more it seems like no one really notices when you aren't there anymore.
Perhaps this is my reminder that I too should be better at noticing when people aren't there and checking in with them to see that they are well or not in need of something or another.  

Perhaps this means I should be doing more, like I just said. 

I don't know. 
It just aches my heart a little. 
I know it's the devil, but he has a way of getting to you sometimes. 

"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me" 
Psalm 51:10

Feeling discouraged



"Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord."

purpose






"For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and tho knoweth whether tho art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14 KJV

At church we've started a 40 day series where we attempt to learn our purpose in this thing called life through Gods word. Pray that I'm able to find mine during this time.
It's weird feeling lost sometimes. 

What's your purpose.

Matthew 7:7





" Ask, and  it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
Matthew 7:7 KJV

On October 4, 2015 I prayed and it was given to me.
