Whew! Thank goodness it is Friday! This week went fast and drug all at the same time! So much stuff, so little time. Seems to be the story of my life anymore! This weekend is packed again as usual. Tonight, my hubby and son are going to a b-day party for a little boy at church. My daughter and I have a bridal shower for my sister. I am excited and sad at the same time. It is so exciting to see her getting all this stuff and to see her so happy but am so sad she is moving clear across the
! Hopefully we will be able to go visit in the spring or summer next year to break it up, otherwise it will be a very long year L Tomorrow we are having a surprise b-day party for my mother-in-law. Shhhh!!!!! It should be lots of fun but there is a lot of preparing and decorating that will need to be done! Very thankful for a wonderful sister-in-law! You have helped out and done tons!!!! Sunday we will have church in the morning and then I am making ham, cheesy potatoes, dinner rolls, veggie or salad and a yummy pumpkin dessert! My sis, brother-in-law and niece are coming up for dinner! I am so excited, don’t even remember the last time we had Sunday dinner company! I grew up with it being the norm, at least 1 or 2X a month. So I am really looking forward to it! Then, my week starts all over again! US
In my studying and reading this week, the thing that is sticking out the most (maybe something God is trying to tell me) is that we must put our thoughts, feelings, desires and wants aside. When I repented of my sins, was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ and filled with the Holy Ghost, I died out to this old carnal man. Romans 8:7; I Corinthians 15:31. I put on a new name, the Name of Jesus Christ. Therefore, it isn’t about me or what I think or want. It is about fulfilling God’s will and doing my part in His Perfect Plan. It is about making Heaven my home, staying on the straight and narrow and leading others that are lost to Him along the way. Matthew 7:13-14 I can’t listen to my “hurt” feelings, my “bright” ideas or any other of “my” thoughts that pop up here and there. If I listen to this flesh, it will lead me straight to a devils Hell. Yes, Hell is real, it is hot, it is horrible and tormenting and it is for ETERNITY!!!!! So when things have popped up here and there, I have tried to think about that and question my feelings. Is it the Holy Ghost speaking to me or is it this flesh that is trying to trip me up? Remember, it is the little foxes that spoil the vine! Song of Solomon 2:15. Happy Friday!
