Spring Cleaning Ahead!

     Everywhere I turn I see a reminder that time springs forward this weekend.  Springing the clock forward makes spring seem even closer.  Now I am not sure the weather agrees since I am still seeing ice outside but spring is coming.  Officially on March 20th and I guess honestly when the Lord decides.  
     When I think of spring, I think of spring cleaning. I think of cleaning, decluttering, getting rid of unwanted things, fresh and sunny.  Now, I  was thinking house cleaning but as I was thinking on this I thought maybe we need to spring clean our lives too.

     So, now if you were going to spring clean your life, where could we start?  Maybe the same place we would start with our homes.  

     We might need to declutter some things-what kind of things have we let in our lives we need to get rid of?  Maybe it is a habit that needs to be broken?  Do we let things come before our family?  Do we let things or even others come before God and our quiet time with Him?

     We might need somethings fresh-like starting a new devotion or reading our bible daily.  Maybe we  can get outside in nature and try prayer walking or having our quiet time outside with the birds singing and the sun shining.

     One of my favorite verses is:Psalm 51:10
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    So as spring approaches have you thought about what areas of your heart and life needs to be cleaned?  I am praying now that God will show me the areas in my life that might need cleaning or decluttering.  So who will join me?

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,

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…
