JOURNEY WITH ME…

Hey friends, how are you doing today? How was your week? I do pray you enjoyed a good week, walking with the Lord, first and foremost.  This relationship with the Lord does set the tone for other relationships with others.  We learn to love and enjoy each other more, when the Lord is first is our lives.  We learn to put the needs of others before our own, especially when they don’t deserve it.  Say…what?!   I can assure you, ‘me first’ needs no practice; that comes naturally.  After a while, people can wear us out, if Christ does not sit on the throne of our hearts.  Impatience, anger, bitterness, revenge are attributes, we do not which to indulge in, especially when there is a congregation of too many family members.   D01C50AA-5557-42DA-8FA3-7C2EB9B01955The girls are here for Thanksgiving Break, a blessing for which I do thank the Lord.  It makes my heart glad, when my girls are sleeping under our roof.  I know… I know… they belong to the Lord; He is the best Caregiver and Protector.  They are in good hands, when they are in the Lord’s loving hands.  Praise the Lord for more mercy and more grace.  We enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving Day Dinner with our church family and friends.  There’s always laughter and ‘catching up’ and encouragement and spurring each other on, in our walk with the Lord. I thank the Lord for church folks. heb 10 25I am deliberately taking the time to slow down, as we approach the end of the year.  November is almost at a close and ready or not, December will be here.  ‘How do I want to end 2018?’ is a question I’ve recently asked myself.  How do I want to begin 2019, if the Lord spares my life? What are some changes to my schedule, do I need to make? How do I want to manage my time? Who am I becoming? Are there habits in my life, I need to break or cement?  Matt 9 38Let’s go on the journey of answering these questions, before the year comes to an end.  Let’s begin to make the necessary changes now, instead of waiting for a new year.  Let’s invite the Lord into the changes and ask for His blessing.  Let’s trust Him more, starting now.   Let’s decide now to acquaint ourselves with the Lord of the Harvest by immersing ourselves in His Word and by talking with Him.  Let us be intentional about obeying His Word; He really wants only the best for us.  Let us choose to be examples to our family, friends and to the world.  They need to know there is hope and joy and peace in our Lord.  What are some reflections we need to focus on, as the year comes to an end? Share with us your reflections of 2018 so far…closing1brenda
