Learning to walk in the joy of life!
God has truly been speaking to me lately, just in small things. I think sometimes we look so hard for him in the BIG things that we miss the small things. I had asked God to help me not too long ago because I knew I was experiencing a problem with looking at other people's lives and feeling like something was missing from my own. He is teaching me that my life is mine, that he has given me, and he doesn't have someone else's life for me, he has my own, and my own is the very BEST he has for me. I would not be satisfied with someone else's! I sit here today, so satisfied, and I know sometimes it is a feeling, but I know this is not, I am so satisfied with this life, I have beautiful children, a wonderful family who loves me, an awesome church family, a more than great job, and friends galore. And those friends are not all Christians, but God is showing me that my life will affect theirs. He is in me and I am in Him, how could I not affect them. (thank you, Pastor Andy!) I am finally becoming the woman I have always wanted to be, I am happy to be home, as a matter of fact, I long to be here, cook for my family, and do some chores, I have just learned to love it here! My workplace is a place of peace also, God is working in every person there also! Just when I think it couldn't get better, with Jesus, it will! Today, I know that the little nuggets of truth I have been learning bring about this perfect peace and it makes me that much more eager to learn more of what he has for me and my family! I pray everyone could have this!!!
