One Word

    
        As I was thinking ahead to 2014 I started thinking about what God would have me to do and where He would have me to go in all areas of my life.  I have several friends who choose a word or a verse to focus on for the new year.  I prayed and wondered what my word would be. I chose a word and was sure it was the one.  I have felt though that maybe I chose the word and not God and today I have been led to my word for 2014.  
     The word I will focus on for 2014 will be believe.  I know that God is my savior and that I am truly saved.  I have complete hope of spending eternity in heaven. One of the last things my Moma said to me before she got her wings was, "I believe".  I think she was letting me know she knew where she was going and that she was ready.  I have felt like God has been questioning me about my belief.  As I said not in my belief of salvation or in Him but COMPLETE belief.
     I stress way too much, I worry and wonder.  I know some of that may be natural.  However I want my belief and trust to be stronger in all areas of my life.  In Matthew 21:25b it says "Why did ye not believe him?" I don't want God to be questioning if I believe or not.  I want to trust in Him and know in everything;to believe.
     The verses I will be focusing on in 2014 are:
      Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 
      Mark 9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
     Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
     This is where I will be focusing in 2014.  What about you, do you choose a word, verse(s) or make goals, resolutions or anything?  Where do you want your life to go in 2014?  I would love to hear from ya'll if you do choose.
I am linking this up with The Time Warp Wife at her Titus 2sdays
 



God bless and prayers for 2014,
Pat

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,
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…
