This morning as I walked by Daphnes room I heard her yelling mommy... I walked in and said what do you want baby. She said "kiss me". I said "I'm not leaving yet". She said "I don't care kiss me anyway!" Melted my heart! She also is using the word Imaginary. She said it means stuff that is not really real. I want to remember all the little things about her when she is little. She is growing so fast!!!!
What a change of life to fully immerse yourself in the word daily and to allow God to speak to you through his scripture. When you are struggling Jesus is a friend. When life is charmed Jesus is to get all Glory, and when life isn't going your way remember God has an ultimate plan.
This year hasn't been very easy and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier, but with constant prayer and devotions and wonderful support systems I am more alive than I have ever felt. When I want to wallow in my misery I remember this isn't about me, it's about what I can do for someone else and how God can use me. Beyond ordinary images was a way for me to earn a few extra dollars while my husband is in between jobs, but it has turned into a stress relief of typing out scriptures and living them out in my real life. I am following several blogs including Proverbs 31 and Daughters of the King that have truly given me the words I needed to hear at the right time and have inspired me to write. God gives us an audience and we can choose to use it for good or bad. I know there are many women who have posted thoughts and scriptures that have truly touched my heart so when I post my thoughts or bible verses that is my reason behind it.
I chose to share this dream and scripture that it led me to today and I am sharing it again on the blog. I truly believe this was a God thing. Exactly what I needed to hear.
I usually forget my dreams. But I woke up this morning and I remembered something about Galatians in my dream. I knew when I woke up I would read from Galatians and this is the scripture I found.
My hope and prayer is that this will reach someone who needs to hear it.
Doing Good to All- Galations
This is my prayer today.
May I be able to bear my own burdens and fulfill the law of Christ by lifting up others who are caught in transgressions before judging. Help me to deal with my current situation and to remember that in good time we shall reap if we do not grow weary and do not give up. Help me to remember that you are a faithful God and that you will provide always. I pray for others today who may need to hear this same word and I praise you for sending me this scripture and quieting my heart. In your name I pray
Every day you wake up you choose to be ordinary or more than that. I have decided to make a conscience choice to be Beyond Ordinary. So when deciding on a name for my Etsy shop I began asking friends and thinking of names that would fit. When searching the internet I came across an image that read " God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling." #beyonoordinary And then I decided that was perfect meant to be, literally and answer from God.
