Last Year Versus This Year

January 17, 2009

There have been some things that I have been thinking about lately. What makes this year so different from last year?

  1. Older….
  2. Wiser…
  3. Stronger…
  4. Better…
  5. Determined…
  6. Prayerful…
  7. Busier…
  8. Helpful…
  9. Stressed…
  10. Blessed…

I wrote the above as they came to my mind. Now…what do I need to focus on?

  1. Be Prayerful
  2. Be Walking In The Spirit
  3. Be Prepared both in season and out of season
  4. Be Proactive
  5. Be Gracious
  6. Be Prayerful
  7. Be who Jesus Wants Me To Be…Like Him
  8. Be always with Praise in My Mouth
  9. Be Helpful
  10. Be Prayerful

I can’t help but think about being prayerful. David prayed at least three times a day…morning, noon and night. Daniel prayed at least three times a day. Jesus prayed always…but you will notice in scripture that he prays often early in the morning. You see Jesus didn’t do anything during the day unless he had spoken with the Father. Jesus was given his direction, or some would say his marching orders, for the day. I believe that if Jesus had not done this every day he could not been in complete alignment with God’s plan. I know that Jesus was the Son of God and part of the triune, yet…you know that he was like us, yet without sin.

How many times have I missed an opportunity to pray with someone or for someone when I have been too busy with whatever I was doing. I know that God has been working on me to pray without ceasing. That means if it is a quick, “Guide me Father.” I am praying. So many times lately God has been placing people in my path to pray for. They often ask me to pray for them. I find myself when they say this doing it right away. I know this is what God wants me to do. Many times you hear someone say to someone else…pray for me. Well….do we? Let me always LORD to do it RIGHT AWAY!

I would ask that each of you pray for me as I continue to do God’s will for my life. That I be sensitive to what he has for me THAT day. Not for the upcoming days..but THAT day. I know he gives us glimpses into the future so that we can prepare and anticipate what is coming next. But I find myself needing strength for that particular day as my call is expanded and enlarged to something greater than what it is right now. I ask for wisdom and discernment into how to orchestrate administratively those things that are happening. I need God’s help in learning to trust people and to let go of those things that so easily beset me. I need to learn to press DELETE. I need to have God direct me and not me direct me.

Much love to all of you.

Common Sense & Discernment

Daybreak

November 21, 2007

Gotta post this clip. The song is in the middle of some other hits of Barry Manilow’s, but I remember the song Daybreak specifically. When I was a teenager, this particular song was played every morning, all week long during church camp. I mean, I loved the song, but I didn’t get it. Now that I am wiser (thank you Jesus), I truly get the lyrics!Β  WOW! BTW, you are probably saying…this girl has some wide variety of music!Β  πŸ™‚

DAYBREAK

I’m singin’ to the world
Its time we let the spirit come in
Let it come on in
I’m singin to the world
Everybodys caught in the spin
Look at where we’ve been
We’ve been runnin around
Year after year blinded with pride
Blinded with fear

But its daybreak if you wanna believe
It can be daybreak, ain’t no time to grieve
Said it’s daybreak, if you’ll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world

Singin’ to the world
What’s the point in puttin it down?
There’s so much love to share
I’m singin to the world
Don’t you see it all comes around
The feelings everywhere
We’ve been closin’ our eyes
Day after day, covered in clouds
Losin’ our way

Hey, but it’s daybreak if you wanna believe
It can be daybreak, ain’t no time to grieve
Said its daybreak, if you’ll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine
All around the world

I Need Wisdom

November 17, 2007

If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do – ask Him, and He will gladly tell you. But when you ask Him, be sure that you really expect Him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
James 1:5-6
