Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. (NLT)

Ephesians 4:23

I have been stuck in my own thoughts lately. I’m struggling to be a more patient person. It isn’t easy. God won’t just hand over patients, He gives us opportunities to BE patient.
I find myself holding grudges and harboring negative feelings. Trying to justify my anger.

Instead of feeling this way I am handing my thoughts and feelings over to God, to let him help me and guide me.

I needed to see this today ❤

Serving God by Serving Others

I have recently felt a calling to serve others.
Luke 6:38 it is said “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
I have had a pull on my heart to help the homeless. What better way to give to God than by giving to those in need? I’m currently proposing ideas to my church to get involved in these organizations while researching to see what I can do in the name of the LORD. By serving people I feel that I can spread the word of God, helping them in their situations but also introducing them to our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. There isn’t a greater joy than to praise Him, and to tell all of His love and boundless mercy.
Mathew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven”
Hebrews 13:16 “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
1 John 3:17-18 “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”

I have always believed in God, I haven’t always followed Him.

I have always believed in God, I haven’t always followed Him.

I went to church as a young teenager, ran into “teenager drama” and decided that Church wasn’t for me. I didn’t stop loving God, I just stopped trying to fit into a place
I felt I didn’t actually fit, I couldn’t have been more wrong.

So I left the Church, my home, my friends, my family. I decided that I needed adventure. I moved to FL got pregnant, moved to AZ had my daughter, moved to CA, got married (and divorced) and finally I went home..

It wasn’t until years later, very recently actually, that I felt compelled to return to Church. I have a bunch of tattoos and I was pierced, most of which I removed. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be accepted.

But I was, the Church showed me God’s amazing love. I am a very blessed woman.

I have been striving (to say daily would be false) to be the kind of woman, wife and mother that God intends for me to be.
