Priorities

The last couple months have been a little crazy and it seems like they have went by so fast!  I feel like mine and my husbands priorities have been a out of line.  I have been busy with school and a new job.  My husband has been busy with work, family and studying for the GMAT.  This week we had a long talk and both agreed that we need to shift our focus back to God.  We haven’t been really involved in church like we should.  We haven’t been studying the Bible as much as we should.  We have been focusing on the busyness of life too much.

We started going to a church we both love, but we haven’t stuck our foot in serving just quite yet.  We did have some reason not to jump right in.  At the last church we went to we jumped right in, but it was too soon.  We didn’t fully agree with the church 100% and it caused us to leave the church within a year.  We made many good friends, but it is not fair to a church family to jump in and then change your mind not too long after.  The past couple weeks, we have made more of an effort to get to know people more in our small group and at our church.  The past couple weeks have been a blessing.  As soon as we shift our focus on what is important, God truly opens our eyes to His possibilities.

We are going to start getting our priorities back in line.  Praying and reading the Bible together.  Taking more time for each other and having date nights.  That is what is important in life.  Sometimes you need to step back and appreciate it!

God’s Peace

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John‬ ‭14‬:‭27‬ 

God’s peace is like nothing I have ever felt in my life.  My life can be chaotic and messy, but I can sense the peace throughout it.  I have mentioned before about the importance of morning prayer. For me, I receive much inner peace throughout the day when I start my day off with God.  I love to run and do yoga, but even those things cannot calm me down like God does.  It’s such a unique feeling, its hard to explain.  I pray that everyone finds God’s peace in their life.  

Powerful Reminders of God

so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” Hebrews‬ ‭13‬:‭6‬ 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews‬ ‭13‬:‭8‬ 
Jesus is always the same.  He never changes.  People change, seasons change and society changes-but God never changes.  Jesus is the most stable thing in our lives.  We should recognize that power and be in awe of it.  Whenever you are feeling down about this life, remember God’s wonderful power and the blessings He has given to you.
