Abundant Blessings

Wow, let me just say again, Wow!  It is amazing what is happening these days. The Lord is rocking our world let me tell you.  Prayers are being answered, prophecies are being fulfilled, true spiritual growth is happening among my family and church.

For me in particular - the Lord is showing me how to put into action all these things that He has put on my heart.  I am learning how to get organized, focused and actually accomplish the tasks at hand.  How is this happening, you ask? Obedience, simple and pure obedience.  I am in the Word everyday, whether I feel like it or not.  I am fasting one morning a week, whether I feel like it or not.  I am praying throughout the day and praising Him continually. Why - Philippians 4:6-7 that's why!

He told me to make a schedule so I made a schedule and I am sticking to it.  It is amazing the peace you feel when you realize that you don't have to accomplish everything in the moment that it comes to your mind.  I tell myself - "I will take care of that at the appointed time." and I am released from feeling like I am overwhelmed.

He wants me to embrace what He is giving me, not be overwhelmed by it.  And by being obedient, He is answering prayers and revealing His intentions.

Commitments update

Well, considering it has been over 2 months since I last posted, I would have to say that the commitment of posting every week has in fact - FAILED.

As far as all the other ones, I think I am still going strong.  But then again how would you know since I haven't posted anything in over two months - oh well :)

The last several weeks have consisted of remodeling projects that must be finished before our vacation in a couple of weeks because by the time we return we will be hitting monsoon season.  We have been redoing our decks.  I have never been so tired in all my life, well maybe after giving birth.  But since then I have not worked so hard.  I am bruised and battered but the job is finally finished.

I also have wrapped up co-teaching a Bible Study with my dad - the Preacher Man.  That was really cool and I really learned a lot.  Not just about that particular Bible study but also about my capability in teaching.  I am really gaining confidence in this area.  I also preached for the 3rd time and I am really happy with how that went as well.  I finished up the Peacemakers study with the Sunday school kids and we are now preparing for them to "Preach" one Sunday this month and teach the adults what they have learned.

So as you can see I do have some good reasons for not posting for awhile - I will try to do better. Umm well actually the rest of this month may be challenging but starting in July - I promise (maybe)...
