Recently joined booksneeze, the name made me smile! Seriously, I love to read and study, but my funds are limited. With Booksneeze books are free, and I am committed to write a review on my blog. Awesome!
Thinking lots about how to incorporate my interest, to free up sometime. How are you keeping up these days? Have you incorporated things or eliminated them? And how to choose?
We have been going through massive changes in my family. Our daily schedule is gone, and eventually a new one will become the norm. I still have my work schedule, but my Hubs is only home three days and nights a week. The other four are still being worked out. My children have been great in helping and being awesome in just about everything (they are still kids).
We are no longer able to attend a church together on Sundays, and that has been a huge thing for me. So I follow the LORD believing that HE knows what HE is doing. We have been attending a different church on Saturday nights, as our church does not have a Saturday service. Its important to me that my family goes to church together.
The new church and the things I have been studying have been complimenting each other, and I wonder if that is God’s plan? I am thinking so. The topic is “Ineed2change” . Interesting, the Pastor said this weekend, there is so much emphasis on the new believer to change, that the new believer is more focused on the change than in learning to walk with the Spirit. I would have to agree, and even go as far as a lot of believers who have been doing this for many years, have shifted the focus.
In my studies, I am studying the Holy Spirit. Seems to me, we know much about Jesus, and some about God, and next to nothing about the Spirit. Holy Trinity, all one, yet all seperate, each with a job or function. We are to walk by the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, and ultimately changed by HIM. HE is closer than a brother, living with in.
I think its not only time to get to know HIM that lives with in, but to allow HIM to make some changes. Ineed2change..how about you?

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 (I believe this is God’s word and it is truth.)
These verses have caused question in my mind so often before the Lord. I sometimes find myself in business, to the point that my time with HIM suffers. Although I seem to be about the Lord’s work, it is still too heavy for me. I have been quoted scripture that HIS grace is sufficient for me, and it always is…but not all things of GOD are for me or you to do. HE must be part of the decision making process, and we are required to spend time with HIM. HE is never the corner we cut to make ends meet. Our time with HIM is vital to how the rest of the day will come together.
Key to this scripture is to take HIS yoke and learn from HIM…do we know that HE is gentle and humble in heart? This requires relationship, and relationships take time to grow, spending time with the other. Just my thinking that this is why the yoke is so heavy at times..those times the relationship is lacking.
While visiting http://PracticalBibleTeaching.wordpress.com I came across a post. In the spiritual realm, the only thing the enemy wants from a believer as he cannot take your salvation, is to damage your testimony, and to keep you from spending time with the Father. so that your relationship does not grow, and leaves you powerless against him. Why the latter? How strong is our testimony if not spending time with HIM. Dale Hill has given me permission to post this. However I could not get it to transfer…LOL yes its that good!
So go here to read SATANS MEETING..(READ EVEN IF YOUR BUSY) satan called a worldwide convention with demons. This post will jerk your mind, cause you to take another look and get back to where we are to be in Christ. Its imperative to the abundant life you have been called to. No relationship, no power…we need to stop living in defeat…
