Have you ever asked yourself this question? I have. On more than one occasion and in more than several scenarios. My life has been far from easy and I’ve been faced with many times I knew I would fail. Why? Because I believe that I was in a season of wanting to do things my way and not Gods.
I have to say that connection with the outside world is becoming more and more overwhelming. Children are learning how to build their knowledge of social media at an alarming rate. Who can agree with me on this? It seems as though we all go off to our corners every day, school, work, life, and as soon as we come back together everyone’s still distracted by their electronics. I am guilty of using my phone during dinner to check email, or sending a text during a family movie. It all really needs to stop and we have had many family talks regarding this topic. Here’s a few things we’ve implemented in our home to help bring the family closer together when the world is pushing us apart.
As I remember back to when I was about 20, I would dream of being married, creating fine details in my mind. Everything from the white fence surrounding the house, to the front porch with rocking chairs you could watch the sunsets, the number of kids I would have, the type of dog, and the places we would travel together.
I remember back to middle school, and I was beginning a new school right smack dab in the middle of the year. As I walked in I could feel stares from others as I walked through the halls to the main office. I wasn’t sure what people were thinking, but their expression didn’t speak of anything good.
Has there ever been a season in your life that you wondered why you’re here? What is it exactly that God would have you do with your life? Each day brings a new challenge filled with frustration and you just can’t catch a break? I’m raising both hands here.
Well, first of all let me tell you that you do. Even before I start talking about a topic that I recently discussed with some friends, you do. What am I talking about? Join me for a little discussion.
Positive words have a powerful effect on the way you live your life. Daily affirmations will propel you forward in the direction of your dreams and goals. Let me tell you a story.
One day I was feeling quite tired and really overwhelmed. The house needed cleaning, laundry was piling up, and there were dished in the sink from last nights dinner.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year, and for many of you I’m sure there’s a long list of things that you want to accomplish. New years goals are a great way to start of the new year, however sometime they can have you feeling defeated before you even get started.
As we close out 2016, there is one thing that I would like you to know…
So, here we are at the end of another year. Looking back I would say that 2016 has been a year full of blessings, opportunities, accomplished dreams, but there is plenty ahead in sight I would love to begin.
