2013 Goals and Verses

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
Walt Disney
     New Years resolutions just do not happen.  I make them and I break them.  This year I decided to search my life, pray, and set some goals.  I am not sure if I will reach them or not but I know if I do not try then I am already a failure. I made goals in 4 separate areas and a bible verse for each.  So here is my list of goals.....
Mark 1:35 And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
     My first goal is to read my bible through in 2013.  This is a resolution that I have made many times and never kept.  A friend of mine offered to send anybody who emailed her a copy of the bible reading schedule she uses and so I got one and hope it will help me to meet this goal.  If I succeed in this I will also reach another goal which is to have a daily quiet time with God. 
Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
     I want to spend more time with my family.  Life goes quickly and you never know when something could happen.  I want my family to know they are my treasure.  My goal this year is people over things.
Philippians 2:3-4
3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
     I am doing a giveaway of sorts on my blogpage on facebook each month..... 
where I will be honoring a lady or young lady that deserves to be honored.  They will receive a little something to let them know someone has noticed them, cares and wants to let them know how special they are. I believe when you bless others God will bless you.  I want to be a blessing to others this year.
4) Health and Self---  
I Corinthians 6:19-20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
     I am not setting a goal to lose a certain amount of weight or to exercise for a certain amount of time though I hope these will happen.  I just want to be healthier this year.  I am so tired of being sick and I know if I took better care of myself then I would.  I want to work on things that will make me stronger and better.  I know if I reach this goal that it will help me with all of my other goals and areas of life.
      Now will I reach these goals?  Again, I don't know but I do know I am praying that God will give me grace and strength to do my best to.

God bless,
Jeremiah 29:11

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
