Tired of Faking it Til I make it and What I am learning Along the Way!


This may be good for some people and in some situations but I have reached a point in my life that this is no longer working or where I want to be.  I don't want to whine or complain or have pity parties but I can't and won't fake it anymore.

I am not trying to have a pity party, I just want joy, I want people who encourage not people who are just looking for something to talk about, people who smile at you and then talk about you.  I also want to be that for others.

I have taken a few steps back and am searching for answers.  I am reading my bible more and I mean really reading.  I am not doing the "I read 12 chapters today" and yet got nothing.  I may read 1 verse or 20 chapters but I really read and seek to see what God is saying to me.  I am writing scriptures in a scripture writing plan too.  Jenny and I are sharing our writings and our thoughts to keep each other accountable and to encourage each other.  I am seeking sometimes also to just sit, to be still and listen for God and what He is saying to me.

I am also learning as we encourage others we ourselves are encouraged.  So many people are hurting and looking for a friend.  Ask God to show you someone who needs a friend and you may just find you are the answer to both of your prayers.

Lord, I need you in my heart, my life, my everything.  I also want to be used by you to tell others, to help others and to encourage others.  Lord, we all need you and please help me and use me.

Listen to this song!  

If you would like to write the scripture with us, let me know and I pray for anyone reading this.

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…
