Peace

We all want a little more peace in our lives.
Its hard when the world tells you to go and do and
say yes to everything. Say yes to success, say yes to
security, say yes to pleasure ect, ect.
Peace is especially hard in the morning, my mind is
programmed to always have a task at hand. It is kind
of irritating. What happened to slowly waking up, enjoying
my mornings, seeking god in the morning without the distractions
of what I have to get done? I know those days will come again.
Actually this morning was a step in the right direction. I had to
battle the anxious thoughts of things do accomplish. But I know
I can get there again, it has been done before.

We need each other

The past couple days i have been hearing that We Need people. We especially as other Christians need support. The moment we take ourselves out of support we end up having a hell of a time. I have been experiencing this time and as of this weekend I decided that I am going to get back to being connected. Even if people don't take the first step, I am going to make the first step. No more waiting, it is far to important. ("A little funny random thing"-I typed far in that last sentence and it came out spelled like "fart", I chuckled, I like when I laugh at things like that:P) Not only that, I know God wants to bless more people through me, If I look at it from a self perspective then it is entirely that, selfish. And when you are there it is so much easier to not do anything and get down. I had a chance to do things on Sunday and Monday night, it felt good to be a part of old friends and new friends again.
Spiritually I have been challenged to love God with my whole heart
and to me that means doing away with all of the loves of this world.
I get so excited to serve and love Jesus, but at the same time it is so hard
because of being used to serving and loving the world.
Lord break me free.
