New Year

The New Year is coming and I am evaluating and hoping to have some things changing.  I am ready for a fresh start, thank you Lord that you help me get up and start again when I feel I have fallen down too many times to have a chance to try again.

In many areas of my life I need to just reorganize and refresh.  Just wanted to write a quick note and share what I was thinking.  It has been a busy week with Christmas and the kids and just getting things done and enjoying the time as best as I could.

I was encouraged in this after reading a blog post on a blog that I frequent and am always encouraged in the Lord by.  It is Women Living Well.  This post she wrote about the new year has helped me desire God's best and for Him to clear out things in my life in all areas that are not His best and that He doesn't want there.  That will be such a great, great thing and so that is something I will be doing over the next week or so.

Waiting on the Lord

I haven't had much to write about lately other than I am seeking God, asking Him for revelations and to help me to listen to Him because I have not been very well at doing that lately. 

I am waiting on Him, when really He is just waiting on me, I am so so glad that He is so patient with me, thank you Lord.  I am so stubborn and drag my feet at times. 

I ask myself, why?  Why would I want to keep myself from God's best for me...that is just making me more miserable.  Does not make sense to me...and quite honestly I think I have been trying to dig myself out of it or figure out why I am doing this.  When really He just wants me to seek His face and be still and listen, thats it.  He will do the work through me if I will allow Him and stop flopping around like a fish out of water.

So no condemnation, but seeking His face even though I am falling down a LOT lately.

Joshua 1:9 (NIV)  9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Thank you for any prayers.
