One Word 2015-My Word is "Rest"

     I have seen several who have chose "one word" for the new year.  I have done this hit or miss but this year I felt led to choose one and my one word for 2015 is "REST".  I have felt so overwhelmed especially lately and I feel God has led me to this word and to rest in Him.

 I chose REST because I must remember God is with me. He hasn’t left me and I must stop worrying over things I cannot control. "We need rest not just to practice the presence of God internally, but to guard against the negativity of the enemy and the negativity of other people.

Psalms 37:7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

I can't be the Wife, Moma, Mamaw, Teacher, Leader, Friend, nothing if I don't have rest. Not just physical rest but also spiritual rest, resting in the Lord.  This is my word and my goal for 2015.

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.

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…
