Lessons. (March 3rd)

Today's theme is: your favorite motivational quote..

However, we are going to switch it up a little bit.

I got this nifty little Bible from Amazon (LINK HERE) and I absolutely love it! It has a lot of space to take notes and underline scriptures-- which is perfect when you want to remember that little nugget that God takes the time to reveal to you from time to time! And not only does it have room to take notes, it breaks down the scriptures for you. I understand every thing I read-- which is beneficial because it is not only just 'reading the Bible' but it is actually studying the Bible (just by reading it.) I feel like it fills my soul more than our other Bibles, I can't explain it.

We started reading Proverbs about 2 weeks ago which of course means-- tons of notes and tons of stuff to soak in! One thing I felt God speaking about was LESSONS.

In the Book of Proverbs, the author states, "These are the wise sayings of Solomon, David's son, Israel's king- …

Parents (March 2nd)

The March 2nd blog topic was: What are some tips you learned from your parents that you want to share with others?

I would say the number one thing I learned from my parents is the power of prayer and the power of scripture - and that is definitely something I want to pass on to the most important people in my life: my family.

Listening to Momma pray and seeing Dad's Bible sitting on the kitchen table was just something you expected when you were growing up.

I remember waking up for school, getting ready, walking down the hallway, and hearing my Mom praying over everyone while she was getting ready for work. She would pray for protection, for us to make good choices, for our other family members. And let me tell you something- even at 30, I can still tell you that my Mom's prayers are powerful. When I need a Word from God.. when I need His hand in a part of our lives-- I text or call her and ask her to pray. I know God hears her- even when I feel like He can't hear me. 

And no…

WAIT (March 1st)

What do you do when God says 'wait?' When God says, 'not now?' When God says, 'Hold on?'

We often think we are being punished. We must have done something awful to keep getting denied- to keep feeling like we are praying and talking to a brick wall.

I have found myself yelling at God (yes, we have that kind of relationship)

DO YOU EVEN CARE?
WHAT DID I DO SO WRONG IN MY LIFE??
ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING???????
WHERE ARE YOU??
YOU PROMISED YOU WOULD NEVER LEAVE US NOR FORSAKE US, RIGHT?

Who else has been there?

You're feeling abandoned.
You're feeling hopeless.
You're feeling helpless.
You're feeling lost.
You're feeling forsaken.

And you're so confused.

Why wouldn't He want to help me?
Why wouldn't He want to take care of me?
Why wouldn't He want to hear me?

We all have those days. Those days where we lose sight of who God is. The days where we get so lost in our troubles that we can't even see the purpose of the waiting seas…

365 Day Blog Challenge = 365DBC

Have you ever wanted to start a blog, but just wasn't sure where to start? Have you started a blog, but you get lost on what to discuss? Do you have the passion to write, but you're scared of what others will say?
If you fall in to any of those categories (or if you simply just want to give it a try!), lets do this together.
Would you like to join me in a 365-Day Blog Challenge. From March 1st, 2018 to March 1st, 2019?
I know personally, I want to see how life evolves over the course of a year. And I thought with a group effort, there would be accountability, push, and time to share our individual blogs to bring in readers. You can blog about anything. Your day. Your thoughts about your day. Something that stopped you in your tracks that day. A thought you have been having a lately. A motivational quote. I'll try and develop a 'topic sheet' for each month in case nothing is jumping out at you..... but chances are, you'll have something that day you want to remembe…
