Guess who's back...back again!

Ok, so that's a song from days gone by!!!! Seriously though, It has been a very long time since I visited my blog, although I try to keep up with others. I have some great ones to read!!!! So much has happened since my last blog. Some bad, some good. But either way I know God's got my back! And I am looking forward to seeing what he has in store for me!

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Yesterday was such an emotional service for me. And it wasn't just the message (it was communion, and a very powerful message (reminder to self: post video of yesterdays service when on church's site) But I actually started crying as soon as I sat down 20 min before worship even started. Had to leave to go get some tissues. But it was a good cry. My cries lately have been me crying on God's shoulders. I love knowing he is there. I exept what has happened in my life, and whatever is going to happen with my marriage. My tears now, and just sad....But with God's strength and those huge shoulders to cry on, and opened arms to be held by, and wonderful Godly women he has placed in my life I WILL BE OKAY!!!!!!

I have a few girlfrields that I confide marital issues with. Only woman that I know will truely give me Godly advice. It's awesome when one of them is just hit with scripture that backs that advice up!!!

And I Praise the Lord for putting these wonderful women in my path!

1 Peter 3
Wives and Husbands
1Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, 2when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 5For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands, 6like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

So first and most importantly is our daily time in God's Word.

Adding to that (when I have the time) I am trying to get my fill of christian books, whether they relate to a closer relationship to Christ (most important) or my part in my marriage as a wife.

Currently I am reading "I'm Not Good Enough"...and Other Lies Women Tell Themselves.

I am only on page 40 or so, but so far so good.

It goes into the lies that satan puts into our minds,
I am a loser
Nobody loves me
I don’t have time to read the Bible
I’m not good enough
I would be happier married to someone else
My family would be better off if I were dead
Without an education, I’ll always be behind

for me, it's always "if only I'd lose the baby weight...." (from 17 months ago I might add)

And then the book rebukes satans lies with Gods truth Straight from the bible!

How awesome is it it that the weapons we need for satans lies are right in front of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Praying for a new Leader

Yesterday the Lord claimed our wonderful Congressman, Congressman John P. Murtha

Matthew 5:4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

I have no clue what his religious believes were. I simply knew him to be kind, caring and always available to the public.

Our offices worked with him quite often and he is our main source of funding for our area military programs.

Congressmann Murtha has been in office since 1974. It will be hard to find someone to fill his shoes.

I pray Lord, that you will bring to us a strong man or woman that can make our town as you would want it to be in all area.

I am fighting the issue of Gossip it seems everyday! At work, on the phone, on Facebook!! It's so easy to get involved! And so WRONG!!

New International Version (©1984)
Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to. 1 Timothy 5:13

He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.Proverbs 10:18

I am making it my new goal to always pray for a person that I hear is having life troubles. How awful is it to find some kind of joy in anothers pain?

I still catch myself getting involved in gossip, but I pray to have the strength to stop myself. I am horrified when I think of some of the things I have said about others in my past.

Power of a Praying Wife

The snow is pretty, but I was worried about my husband last night. He drives quite a ways from to and from work and usually gets home around 10:30. Last night it was 11:30. Was also grateful to hear that the guys in the car pool took the hummer.

I prayed for his safety as I pray for his protection everyday. The book Power of a Praying Wife is a wonderful book of prayers for your husband.

Lord, I pray that you will show me were I need to change so that I may be the wife you want me to be and the wife my husband needs.I pray in your name that my husband keeps his life to you and to prayer so he always has wisdom to lead our family. I pray he honors You for the hedge of protection You have placed around our lives.Give his heart the desire to teach our children to love You and Your Word. I pray he creates a desire in the hearts of our children to walk in Your ways. Keep him from those things that draw him away from You, things that produce death in families."

1 Peter 3:1Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, 2when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

Godly Girlfriends!

When I first started my Christian journey (the right way!), I made careful choices in who I chose to confide in.

1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

With all the troubles we face in this world, the friends we bond to can have such an influence on how we cope.

Galatians 6:2 (New International Version)
2Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Children of God will direct you according to God's will and will be prayer warriors with you.

Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything
that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or
more are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them." -- Matthew
18: 19-20

I thank God for these friends that have helped me keep on the right path (GODS WAY) during some very dark times.
