reminder to self.

13:5-6 – Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have.  For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”   6 So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear.  What can man do to me?”

all judgements aside..

As a woman, I can't do everything.
What I can do is daily ask God what he desires of me.
It is not about pleasing people.
They or you even reading this, may think of me as weak or any other sort of thing you like,
but ultimately my focus should be on what God thinks of me.

I am so tired of the game that is easily played of working so hard to please others.
Or being so afraid of messing up.
I am going to mess up.
I am going to let someone down on occasion.
But thankfully his grace is sufficent for me.

My prayer today is that I will know each moment what God has for me, and do it with the strength I have and sometimes his supernatural strength we I don't have it on my own.. which of course will happen.

Let this new year be about God's Direction in my life, and letting go of insecurity and fear.
Let it not be about anyone else's opinions of me.
Let it be full of grace and humility.

what is my life?

My life is a blink of an eye.
So spending my time worrying about it won't get me anywhere.
If all I do is love,
I have done it right.

Today, just remember that we are strangers here.
We belong elsewhere.
What would you do different if you knew Christ would return tomorrow?
I've been thinking about that lately, and I know what I want to be, but getting there takes bravery I don't yet posess.

What are we up to lately?
- enjoying the snow
- baby caleb is now 10 months old and growing so fast! he gets into everything! he knows how to climb, open cabinets, etc. I have my hands happily full.
- had a great date night last night :) got to go out before the snow came
- we are selling books like crazy and loving every minute of it.
- I am thankful for God's provision.
- Hopeful for the future
- suffering b/c I know this is not my forever home i long for heaven.
