January 20, 2011

It is 01.20.2011. I think it is about that time for me to start blogging again. For me, I get so easily intimidated. I have so many things to say or discuss and yet, I do not blog. It is because I see so many of my friend's amazing blogs that I think are such brilliantly, intimately, and intricately woven masterpieces. I aspire to be more like them in so many ways...and hope that I can entertain myself as well as others along that courageous journey. Thank you to all those inspirational bloggers...without whom I would have longer sleepless nights and less of an imagination!

Welcome Back...

I'm happy to be back in the blogging world once more. I have had a lot going on these past couple months and am glad to have finally found some time to blog! I feel like my life has been crazy! Well here is to another go at this blogging thing...

So I recently came across a quote and it instantly made me think more deeply about the most recent happenings in my life. It said, "We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." Looking back on the past couple months, I can say with most certainty that feeling pain is a very important part of growing up. You never learn anything from doing everything the right way! It is in the mistakes we make in which we learn the most about ourselves and life in general. As cliche as it may sound, life is a journey. Good and bad things will happen, but it is how we choose to deal with these things that map out our journey. I am happy to say that I am excited for the journey to come...I need a little adventure in my life! BRING IT ON.

Thank you Beth Moore

I think I have already told you that I have been studying Beth Moore's "Living Free" in my small group. Well this amazing woman of God has opened my heart and mind into seeing God in a completely new way, therefore, teaching me how to grow in my personal walk with Him. One of the main things I have been learning is how to use scripture as prayer. In one of our exercises we were to pick a verse and then pray that verse for however long. While looking at the different verses she had given us to choose from, I just so happened to come across Psalms 26. I felt like this passage went straight through me and tugged on my heart. This will be my prayer for the next week. I hope you find as much strength in it as I do.

Psalms 26
Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity,
And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
Examine me, O LORD, and try me;
Test my mind and my heart.
For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have walked in Your truth.
I do not sit with deceitful men,
Nor will I go with pretenders.
I hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.
I shall wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about Your altar, O LORD,
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
And declare all Your wonders.
O LORD, I love the habitation of Your house
And the place where Your glory dwells.
Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with men of bloodshed,
In whose hands is a wicked scheme,
And whose right hand is full of bribes.
But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
Redeem me, and be gracious to me.
My foot stands on a level place;
In the congregations I shall bless the LORD.

Thank You, Lord, for Your Lovingkindness!
