Colossians 1:10 became my life verse about 5 years ago. Although most days it is an uphill battle and I have to get down on my knees and make that daily surrender it is well worth it. Knowing Jesus is worth any sacrifice we will ever have to make here on this earth.I love to write and share what the Lord is revealing to me and that is how I ended up here to share with you the everyday walk with Jesus, the struggles that I go through in my daily walk in hopes that as you read my walk you will be encouraged to make that daily surrender to our King. It is a daily surrender and everyday we have to bring ourselves to the Lord and lay ourselves at His feet our control issues, our fears, our kids, our marriages, our worries of today and our worries of tomorrow.
I wish I had the perfect answer for all the why questions but I don't. I have faith. I have faith in a God that loves me for who I am not for what the world wants me to be. I have faith in the fact that He gives me breath each day and that in that day I am going to rely on Him to somehow bring Him glory. I have faith that He is going to protect me and my family from this dark world that has evil lurking around every corner and if someone chooses to do evil on one of my loved ones I choose to believe that God is enough to bring me through it! God has laid it on my heart to share what He is doing in my everyday life so that is what this website is about just the everyday walk between a woman and her God, a mom and her God, a wife and her God and a friend and her God. He is amazing! He has me standing in awe of His daily presence in my life, in my husband's life and in my kids life.
Take the time this year to at least ponder the thought of Jesus. If you don't know Him as Savior at least think about it, seek Him who created you and let Him reveal Himself to you. If you do know Him I encourage you in 2010 to dig deeper into HIs life. Get into the RED LETTERS that are written in the Word and dont let the troubles and circumstances get in the way of Jesus in your life this year!
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would be only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God's secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn't love others, I would be nothing. If I give everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it, but if I didn't love others, I would have gained nothing.
Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.
