There are days I feel like I need a do-over, even though that’s not possible. Rushing out of the house, dropping the kids off at school, running errands throughout the day, back through the pick up lines, homework, dinner, baths, and bed. Geesh…I am tired just thinking about it all. I want to share with you five things that may be stopping you from moving forward.
I can remember about 5 years ago, I stopped at a store to shop and had my three children with me. At the time, they were ages 13 and my twins were 7. I was supposed to run into the store rather quickly, grab what I needed, and run back out. But, if you are a parent I’m sure you can relate when I say things don’t always go as planned.
Hey, thanks for joining me here on the blog and I am so excited to announce its my birthday tomorrow, December 1st, and I’m giving back to YOU! Ill be 42….Shhh don’t tell anyone. Actually, I’m pretty proud to say that I have lived this long and have been blessed beyond measure at this point. God is so good!
There are many things in life that we take for granted. I have to raise my hand here because I am guilty myself of taking daily situations for granted that I should be thankful for.
I wrote this blog post as a guest blogger for Lydia at believingtruthblog.com. I am honored to have the chance to write and share this post with all of you.
As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, believer of Jesus, and friend to many, I have to say that my life wasn’t always such a beautiful picture. Before I knew who Jesus was, my life was filled with disobeying, mistrust, dishonesty, partying, and truly a sinful lifestyle. I was brought up in church, however, my personal relationship with Jesus blossomed at a later age.
Today brings the end of another election year and I can honestly say that for me it has been a little less than pleasurable. I enjoy electing another leader for our country, however with all of the name calling and speculations, its been harder to remain focused on the end result.
Have you ever felt like you were supposed to be at a certain place at a certain time? You may have questioned the initial occurrence, but then it is confirmed and you know the only thing it could be is God. Ill share a little experience with you.
Have you ever thought what is my purpose in this life? Do you sometimes feel as if you would like to pursue different avenues in life but don’t know how, are scared, or worse, feel like you will fail or are not equipped?
Have you ever really struggled to trust and believe that God is who he says he is? I know I’ve been in that place several times and in the midst, found myself wondering how I got there.
So as a few of you may know, I developed a passion for running about 3 years ago. Not intentionally, actually pretty reluctantly. I can remember my very first 5K race that I believe took me almost 40 minutes. I couldn’t run a mile to save my life. Nor did I want to.
