He Restores My Soul!

Psalm 23:He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
 
     Psalm 23 is some of the first memory verses I learned.  I have read them many, many times.  Yet, I had never had a verse leap out at me like the first part of verse 3 did this morning.  "He restoreth my soul", wow, it hit me. When we are in the midst of the chaos that we call life, God can and will restore our soul. He is waiting there to help us, waiting for us to pray, to ask and He will.  That is powerful!  
     How many times I have said, I am so overwhelmed and I don't know where to turn or what to do.  Yet Jesus is there waiting.  I am a wife, mother, Mamaw, teacher, leader, friend and more.  I have people from every area pulling at me.  I love what I do and I cannot imagine my life being any different.  At the end of the day sometimes I stop to pray, think, read my bible and just breathe, but do I ask God to restore my soul?  It says right there in the bible He will and He is waiting to do just that.
     When you feel life pulling at you and that your strength is almost gone, stop, whisper a prayer to God, ask Him to restore you, He is there waiting and He will.

God bless,

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,
Pat


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…
