My Walk With God

        I have recently thinking about my walk with God.  Now, I am not talking about me and God going out and taking a walk together.  I am talking about my relationship with God.
      I know I am saved but I seem to have gotten away from that close walk with God.  I started thinking what had changed,where was God?  God is right there where He always has been and always will be.  I am the one who has walked away.  I have changed.  I am tired, I am busy, I have so much to do.  My prayers are sent towards heaven even as I am headed in another direction.  I read my bible but it is usually as I am teaching school or hoping I don't fall asleep before I get done.  I have walked away.  
     This is the view down my street.  As I go out each day I have a choice if I go left or right and the direction I choose will determine where I end up.  As we walk through life we have choices about direction too.  We can go right and follow God or go wrong and not be where we need to be.  When we are not walking in the direction of God, what can we do to change directions?

   I know for me it is to prioritize and slow down.  I commit to too much, make excuses, and let myself get overwhelmed and I get off on the wrong turns and path.  The things I know that have helped me in the past to have a better walk is this:
  1. Pray before I get out of bed
  2.  Read my bible every day, make it a priority, not rushed and not how much but how read
  3.  Pray all throughout the day
  4. Pray when I go to bed
  5.  Be still long enough to hear the Voice of God and where He would have me walk.
    Where are you walking and are you satisfied with your walk?  If not, it might be time for changes.  I will be checking back in from time to time to let ya'll know where I am on my walk.  I would love to hear where you are too.

Until next time,

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…
