I hope everyone is as geared up for the new year as I am! To me, a new year means a fresh start. This year was full of wonderful things, but next year is going to be amazing! God has blessed me with a ministry and given me the "green light" to move forward in it. That's exciting! He's cleared numerous obstacles. He's showed me the way to get my book finished. I felt like a little kid waiting for the UPS truck to deliver my books. There's such a great testimony behind this book. I'll be giving you more details about it in the near future. The title is "Life Lessons from Proverbs: Foundational Wisdom for Sons."
With all my heart, I pray God's choice blessings on you for the new year. I pray that you grow in wisdom and knowledge. I pray that we all grow to a deeper relationship with our Savior and do those things that He has called us to do. I've adopted that song that Sheri Jones-Moffett sings, "Not Too Late to Dream," as my theme.
It's not too late to dream. It's not too late to achieve. Move forward IN CHRIST. Watch God make it happen.
"So it’s not too late to dream,
Watch the video below first.
Determined to exercise!
The local community centers are closed.
The YMCA is about to close.
Hubby just came home.
I am determined to exercise!
Don't want to leave since Hubby is home.
Determined to exercise!
I turn on the radio and listen to the Bible teachers.
Turn up the volume.
Set the timer.
Strap on the ankle weights.
Grab the hand weights.
Making good use of my open floor plan.
Round and round I walk.
Again and again and again.
Up the stairs. Down the stairs.
Then I jump in place.
Determined to exercise!
And I did it!
How blessed I am to have a Savior. How determined I am to please Him.
Each day is a fresh start. Each day is another chance. Each day is worth living - in Christ.
It's all about Him.
To Him I owe my life.
To Him I give my praise.
Because of Him I am what I am.
Because of Him I will be even better, one day.
To Him I give all the glory and honor.
Without Him, I could do nothing.
Where could I go without Him and why would I want to be there anyway?
Without Him there is no me.
Without Him there is no purpose to my life.
To Him belongs everything that is worth anything.
I long for Him. I thirst after Him.
My husband (him) is super, but, one day, God will call him Home.
My children (hims) are the best, but they will, one day, all leave the nest to start their own nests.
Only my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Him), can be my everything - for He will be with me forever and ever. Amen.
Everyone has a something with which they struggle. Your "something" might be easy to me and a struggle to you. My something might be easy to you and a struggle to me. But everyone has a something. One thing for certain, our struggles, whether great or small, are all easy for God to handle. He makes certain that we aren't carrying any more than what we can handle. He NEVER sets us up to fail.
For God, all our struggles are easy for Him. So, why not let Him carry the load. He's willing AND able.
There's no something to great. There's no something too small. My Lord can carry them all.
Mind what you confess. Your words DO matter. I can’t say that I completely understand this, but I’m learning that our words do have a profound impact. I use to say that I was tired and old. That was my response to nearly everything. It wasn't long before I began to internalize it. I can't, truthfully, say that I'm young and energetic, but what good does it do to drill it in my head that I'm tired and old? Is it of any help to me? Does it encourage or inspire me to do better? No, it makes me want to give up and call it a day.
My new confessions:
I am anointed to speak
I am called to speak.
I am fully committed to God.
I am surrendered to God.
I am consumed by the Holy Spirit.
I am saturated with the Word of God.
I am full of wisdom.
I am unstoppable when God directs my path and when God says it’s time to move out on HIS Word.
So, what words do you want to speak over your life?
Inspiration that puts joy in your journey! That's what this blog is all about. Share your thoughts. Happy posting!
