I know your heart is breaking. I know you are tired. Please come home.
I know life is more than you can stand and that you have made decisions that the enemy uses against you to make you feel unworthy of God’s precious grace and mercy but please remember you are his and he just wants you to come home.
Do you thrive on being being busy? Do you go through life at a break-neck speed? Does the concept of ‘enough time’ seem elusive? It’s probably time to slow down and get alone with God.
Busyness is one of Satan’s favorite tools to use against us. It’s not unusual to go wide open from the time our feet hit the floor. If you’re anything like me, your first thought when you open your eyes is your to do list. Are our never ending to-do lists getting in the way of our time alone with the Lord?
Have you ever been convicted about something such as a belief or activity, or had God burden your heart to do something but the people in your sphere of influence have tried to discourage your obedience? If so, this post is for you.
“ Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God” ~ Hebrews 12:2
I’ve had enough!!!! I have noticed this very disturbing trend in Christian blogs called Let’s Beat Up the wife!!!
I am going on the record right here and right now by saying that I believe in the truth of God’s word and that us women must obey God and all that entails so don’t think I’m here to let us girls off the hook. But I am going to flip that coin over.
I see this weird thing going on in the Christian blogging circle where female bloggers have adopted this attitude that all marital problems are somehow on the wife’s shoulders and I am absolutely baffled by this!!! This is so far from the truth!!!
I watch these women just go on about how it’s really our fault because we’re not obeying enough, or we’re not submissive enough, or we’re not humble enough…blah blah blah blah blah.
I fully believe in Titus 2 and that older women should teach younger women to love their husbands but God never told us to be so dern snotty about it. I absolutely cannot believe the pride and condescension so many of these articles are written with. I am not and do not have any intention of becoming a marriage blogger but I have been stewing over this for quite a while. Read More
Warning: I don’t care to offend you.
I use words like sinner, sin, and wrong.
And I talk about it.
Now let me tell you why…
Several years ago, I lived far, far from God. I got saved when I was 8 years old but if you had of met me in my 20’s, you wouldn’t know it.
Do you ever feel like you have 47,000 thoughts running through your head at any given moment? Do you ever feel like if you don’t stop and do something right away you’ll forget it? Do you ever feel like your mind is so cluttered that your brain will explode?
|Bullet journaling is the
solution for mental clutter.
Why bullet journal?
Us women tend to pride ourselves on our ability to multi-task and get things done but having too much on the mental to-do list is super stressful and overwhelming.
Part of that comes from simply trying to keep it all straight in our heads.
- sermon notes
- diary thoughts
- prayer lists
- bible study notes
- to-do lists
Anything you want to remember, write it in your bullet journal!! You can even add planner pages to it.
Please forgive my pitiful lighting and hand writing
You can see in my table of contents kind of what I use mine for.
The New Year is often looked at as a point in time when we get to start fresh on a clean slate. The old year is behind us, the new one is before us. Blank pages of life are anxiously awaiting to be filled.
When we make New Year’s resolutions, it’s often something that we KNOW needs change. Whether it’s to lose weight, quit smoking, eat better, exercise more, or stop procrastinating, our resolutions stem from a desire to change.
