Hello sweet friends,
I’ve done two different blogs today but I wasn’t happy with either one. I’ll give it more time this week and post one of them next week. But my new mantra given to me by the Lord this very day is “Peace before productivity.”
God showed me when I start to get anxious or impatient, I am losing peace at the expense of productivity. My body tells me it is time to reprioritize and put first things first.
You know this year has been one in which I wanted to walk with the Lord more closely. My verse for 2011 is “And so I walk in the Lord’s Presence as I live here on earth.” (Psalm 116:9).
One of the first fruits that walking closer with God ought to produce is peace, not frustration, aggravation, or impatience. So friends, pray for me. Pray that I learn to let go of my agenda and live more peacefully in the moment, even if it requires that I do less.
Now it’s your turn. I’ve been curious about who you are, why you stop by, and what you’d like help with? What are your biggest needs or deepest hurts in your closest relationships? Where do you get stuck or hindered from living the life you want to live? Like me getting stuck in busyness, anxiety and impatience, what holds your heart (body and mind) in that unchanged place?
That’s all for today I’m off to pay Uncle Sam! Hope you got a refund.
Take a moment to respond. I’d love to hear from you.
I was away this weekend, writing and relaxing. The beach is a perfect place to do both. I’m going to do something a little different. Instead of answering a question, I’m going to ask you a few. I want to share something one of my friends wrote that I thought fit in perfectly with what...
Morning friend, I am in Dallas, TX this week for the American Association of Christian Counselors conference. I’d appreciate your prayers as I am speaking several times around some tough topics. Pray I can stay focused and honor God in all I say. Question: I do not normally do this, but I am lost and…
Morning friends, I hope you have been finding the weekly video’s that I’ve been posting on my home page helpful as you navigate through emotionally destructive marriages. This week I’m talking about misunderstandings on headship and submission that can lead to a mindset of entitlement and excusing abuse. I would appreciate your prayers as I…
