Goal #1

     There are several areas of my life I want to work on this year. I hope to share each area in the coming weeks.  I hope by writing them here and sharing them that it will help me keep accountable to them.
     The first goal is to have a closer walk with God.  I do lots of stuff in my church and am always busy. But something God brought to my attention recently is no where in the bible does He say be busy but He does say "be still".  I want to work on being still-spending more time reading my bible, in prayer for me, the ones I love and others.
     I have 3 specific goals under this goal and they are:
          1} Read my bible through this year
          2} Pass out 7 tracts a week (or more)
          3} Spend more time in prayer for me and my walk, for my family, my friends and others.
                         Bro. Bob has a prayer list of people that he prays for faithfully and I will be making a   
                         prayer list for me.  I know other prayer requests will come up but these will be the ones
                         I pray for continuously.
     I with Gods help will reach these goals this year. Do you have goals for 2014?  I hope you will come back as I continue this series on goals and to see how I do on reaching them.  I would love to hear yours too.

God bless,
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…
