Day 8

Todays is all about finding a bible verse to help you with a situation you are facing.reading about loving god with our whole heart, soul and mind is easier said then done. But it starts with reading , read his word , do what it says and watch your life change.Mine i picked is for strength because im struggling to find more hours at work since my mother in law is living with her sister in Dayton area now. Sometimes i wonder if I can get thru it and found this verse today.
Don’t fear, because I am with you;
   don’t be afraid, for I am your God.
   I will strengthen you,
   I will surely help you;
   I will hold you
   with my righteous strong hand

Day 7 I am Loved

Back to day 6 i liked one thing the book says . I finally got it.  His word is your map for living a gps, a navigational system, most of all a plan for life.  Which leads me to day 7 . His love never fails , his love is patient, his love is forgiving and eternal he will never stop loving me. Me -- he choose to die on the cross to prove his love for me and for you.
New International Version (©1984)
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let Israel say: "His love endures forever."
Let the house of Aaron say: "His love endures forever." Let those who fear the LORD say: "His love endures forever." Psalm 118:1-4 Today daily step is to say out loud I am loved by my father in heaven with a love that is beyond compare and he will never ever stop loving me.  So thanks god for sending son as a sacrifice ( Romans 5:8

Day 6 -The Missing Times

Day 6  Bible Reading,

Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and Useful one way or another - showing us the truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way.  Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks god has for us.  2 Timothy 3:16-17
  Today I will start with the date in the book that is stated..  It suggest reading Luke 1-3. I challenge you to read this and post your comments of what you feel was said.

Even when the world seems to be falling apart i know God gave me a wonderful husband who cares for me . I can always turn to god but i can always turn to my husband. Some times we just stop and pray. We hold hands and pray because we know god is always with us.   So today lord i lift my hands and pray and thank you lord because i know without you i wouldnt have such an wonderful husband .

patience lord day 2

patience lord day 2

Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray.  Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.  Before you know it a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.  Its wonderful when what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.   Philippians 4:6-7 The Message 

Daily Step :
 On a sheet of paper, write down something you are worrying about.  Now take that paper and hold it up as if you are offering it to God, and say something like this" I let go of this worry, Father, trusting that You will take care of it"  Now throw that piece of paper in the trash.  And don't take it out!!! You have given your worry to your Father and he is more than capable of handling it.
I did this! But you know im still stressing worried im not gonna get this job lord. I thought the interview went well lord and you know lord I love my clients but its just not the job for me ! I know Lord to trust you and wait ( patience) .I need to work on it.  Never been too good on  patience!! So Lord please be with me as I go thru this step and not only trust you to help me do it but to be more patient and wait on you lord.

90 days of fun and learning how to be closer to god

So one of my friends , Christy Hughes Kerley on Facebook is doing this and she was very happy when I told her i wanted to join . You can too just look for the Journey 90 Daily steps for a real Woman or aka a God Chick.  The book is written by Holly Wagner and you can find it at go check it out . I found alot of them eBay and  

Day 1.......Tell God your Biggest Fear and your Biggest Dream

God , My biggest fear is that I wont be recongnized for the good deeds I do. I know Im not a perfect christian lord but im a Trying christian .  I try to read the bible and encourage others.  I dont always listen to christian music or read bible each day which im working on but I do help others. Wether on the job or off  I try to do things that pleases you.  I helped my mother in law to get hearing aid ( which she never wears) and teeth (which she never wears) but she has them.  I try to help family whenever i can but think that I can never do enough for you and sometimes feel like im not doing enough because Im not doing things with church and not getting involved.
God , My biggest dream is that I can make you happy. Read your word each day and apply it each day to my needs. I hope I can quote the bible like other Christians do and be able to get active in bible studies as well as a great church.
In the book the passage they recite from the Bible is Psalm 5:1-3  O Lord, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning;  listen to my cry for help, my king and my God.  For I will never pray to anyone but you.  Listen to my voice in the morning,  Lord.  Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly. 
So I challenge the rest of you as I go thru this journey join me .  Learn more about yourself and god and pray this scripture because God sent his only son to die on the cross for US ( U and me ). I hope he can change your heart for the better and with me we get closer to God .
