Journey Through Life



I wrote about this "Journey Through Life" this morning.  I thought I would share here in case it spoke to anyone as it spoke to me in my quiet time this morning. 

 I was looking though facebook this morning and I saw the picture above.  I just kept looking at it.  I knew God was trying to speak to me through this picture.  I started having my quiet time and this is sort of what came from it. 

  I have been struggling with some stuff for a while and I keep thinking one day I will wake up and it will all be fixed and better. I realized in quiet time this morning though that is not going to happen. Some days will be better and some days people will say and do things that really hurt. That doesn't mean I failed though, I am me and they are them. Even if I fail or they hurt me or I have a really good day, we are all on a journey of life.

   Life is like a road with twists and turns and bumps and beautiful spots like in this picture. We just have to walk our journey as best we can holding Jesus hand.God said to me that,  I am walking on a journey every day and I need to just hold His hand as I walk like I held my Daddy's hands when I was a little girl  He will protect me if I let Him.  So I am going to try really hard to hold Jesus hand and keep  trusting Him more and people less and seeing where this road leads me. Yes there will be bumps, twists and turns but sometimes there will be those quiet beautiful moments but through them all Jesus has my hand on my whole Journey of Life.

Until next time,
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…
