Joy vs. Selfishness

Jut to give u a Spiritual check with my life I am gonna be perfectly honest. I have yelled at God more than I have praised Him lately. Not because He hasn't been good to us but because I havent been paying attention. I have been to caught up with things that are "going wrong": our cars breaks went. I havent made any real friends yet. Dan works all the time, I cant find a Job. I feel inadequite and like a failure at everything I try to accomplish. 
Did u notice how many times the word "I" was mentioned? The thing is guys is that when trials come (which if they havent already they are about to) you have a couple choices. you can be like me and sit there and yell at God for "not being fair" or you can brace yourself in the hope that you are about to be blown away with Gods blessing and His favor. You can be Selfish OR you can have Joy! (choose Joy)
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the fl…

Hey, sorry I havent posted for a while life has been a little crazy lately. I have been working on my "new years resolutins" for those of you who dont know I do mine on my birthday. I  look over my life and look at who I am and who I am striving to be and make goals for myself to get closer to being that person.
This year I got to add a new category to my goals (YAY ME!) so now not only will I be making goals for my spiritual and physical lives but also as a wifey. I already know what my goals are. I am just working on getting ready to acheve them. Spiritually- I want to be in prayer more. For those of you who know me you know that I can pray for like 45 minutes at a time but I have been slacking really bad as a woman in ministry it is my job to constantly be in prayer for my friends and family especially my husband as God is guiding him. and in this day in age where evil is so prevelant I believe that as Christians we should be on our knees daily for our world.

Leaning

Proverbs 3:5-6Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy waysacknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
When I was a little girl my parents took me to a swimming pool nearby our house. I had no idea how to swim or even tread water so I had these cute little "floaty" things I had 2 wear...... I had a lot of fun chillin in the kiddey pool with my floaties while my mom and dad went and swam in the deep end. At certan times the life guards would blow their whistles and that meant it was time for "Adult swim". Adult swim meant that kids could only stay if an adult was holding them..... So, instead of being bored waiting for an hour for adult swim to be over I went over to where my daddy was swimming and asked if he would swim with ME. then he backed up farther into the water told me to take off my floaties and....... jump. Now I was little, not stupid. I knew full well that if he didnt catch me I wo…

God Isnt a fan of being #2......

So for those of you readers who dont know, I am preparing for the most exciting day of my life! The day that I get to look into the eyes of the man I love with all my heart. and tell the world that I am going to love, honor and cherish him and only him for the rest of my life!

How can I be a good and godly wife to him if God isnt #1 in my life. heres the story...
There was this guy (Jesus/God) I loved more than anything on the planet! I grew up with Him and hung out with Him on a regular basis. He was my one and only friend. He was there through everything.. He was there when I was little and felt beautiful! and He was there years later holding my hair back while I purged myself because I hated the body He loved.... He was my prince when I felt lik…
