March 8, 2010
Outside my window…
Blue sky, sunny, cold, and calm
I am thinking…
Of all the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon me!
He has been so good to me, particularly lately.
When I see how loving He is to me,
I feel so unworthy and repentant for the sin that He forgives me of.
I am thankful…
For the Lord's wonderful provision of a job for me!
He has provided me employment at the place
that my assistant pastor is the manager of,
as I save for college.
I am wearing...
A peach button-up skirt and green collared shirt.
I am reading…
The Holy Bible:Proverbs, Matthew, 1 Corinthians;
The Apocrypha: Wisdom of Solomon
"Fascinating Truths" by James Knox
"The Lost Cause Series" by James Knox
"Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris
I am creating…
A book that I've been praying for 5 years about writing
(Falling In Love With Jesus).
One of my favorite things…
Brownies awaiting to be finished off :)
I made some mocha truffle brownies the other day
and there's just enough for 1 more piece per person!
For education this week…
Studying and preparing hard for the ACT test.
Also going to watch work related videos this Tuesday,
and hopefully begin working on Wednesday.
A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
I think I'm going to try to eat a little healthier.
A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
That the Lord answers prayer and fully provides!!
All we need to do is ask Him to lead us, being willing to follow, and He will!
A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Staying in prayer and more Bible studying.
Scripture I am memorizing…
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against her mother,
and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it:
and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."
I'm praying for…
The Lord's guidance through my life;
For wisdom about this upcoming move;
For His provision for college;
Also praying that He sends more missionaries to
the much needed country of Greece and the rest of the world.
For the rest of the week…
Possibly getting a new family car today;
getting some new shoes for work;
starting my job on Wednesday or Thursday;
finish filling out all the application for college;
continuing work on "The Revolutionary" (by Chopin);
writing and studying more for my book;
responding to some letters, comments, and emails;
spend extra time with my wonderful Savior;
and whatever else the Lord sees fit to send my way.
A picture I'm sharing...
An amazing thought from Scripture...
"How precious are thy thoughts unto me, O God!
how great is the sum of them! If I should count them,
they are more in number than the sand:
when I awake, I am still with thee." Psalms 139:17-18
Have a great week!
