Jill told me about the Blog-tember Challenge from BraveLove; and it went in one ear and out the other. But really, I must admit that writing on this blog scares me more than I care to admit. What if people hate what I say? What if I say something that is a poor reflection on people of faith? What if I just don’t make any sense? My list goes on and on but rather than get lost in it like I do in my head; I am going to just jump in. I pray that my words resonate with those that need them; once again – To JESUS!
So Sunday’s challenge was about books. (Hey, just a few days behind!)
What am I reading right now?
1. My Bible – I pray that I get better at reading it every day. There is such a big difference in my ability to handle life when I am reading it daily.
2. Listening for the Voice of God: Growing in Faith Every Day – bought this at the local membership store for $5.48 because it spoke to the question I have had for a long time. How do you know when it’s God? I am always wondering if the nagging sensations or thoughts are my own desires or if they are really that still small voice. I started this before going back to teaching last month and am only to page 9. Mostly because life has dealt a few hiccups and sad times for my family and friends. I struggle with focus when I am sad and even though I truly find peace in God’s love for me; I am better at praying than I am at reading!
3. A Wife After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George. I just bought this Nook book today because I want to strengthen my marriage and know that I am the one who needs to work. God led me to the most amazing man; and I take him for granted. Yes, I struggle with gratitude because I think about all the stuff I am doing to keep my home running, my classroom working, and myself organized (LOL – more on that some other time). Truth is – I really want a marriage where my husband knows without a doubt that he is God’s gift to me and our children and that I long to please him and make him happy – not nag at him or make him crazy.
So that’s it. Those are my books right now. I will keep you updated on how the wife thing is going – that’s my personal challenge – being that wife – the one he can’t live without. 🙂
