progress with purpose
Well, first things first…..Hi (whew). This has certainly been a learning experience. I knew the vision the Lord had given me but I didn’t know where to begin. I know you know this, but I have to say it GOD IS FAITHFUL. He spoke to me “research it like you research everything else”, and that’s just what I begin to do.
Hours and hours of research, little by little, baby steps it began to make sense to me. Truly God became Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord Our Peace) Judges 6:24. For sure I needed it, researching + peace; learning, trying, evaluating + peace; undoing, redoing, trying, failing + peace; questioning myself, going back in prayer asking Lord did you tell me to do this + peace. You guessed it He continues to fortify and surround me with peace all the while making it possible to move forward.
In 2015 I had the privilege to attend a play which my oldest daughter wrote, produced and directed. The actors were people from her church, truly in character. The graphics, voice overs, sounds (thunder, lighting, hospital sounds, machines etc) were all done by her husband, my son in law. It was here I first hear the song Intentional by Travis Green. Immediately I knew that was going to be my go to word for 2016 intentional-doing things with purpose on purpose.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the bible study tab please do so. We are studying Genesis 1:1-4. Our focus point for the upcoming week is simply “In the beginning God”. Stay tune, each day there will be a post of the day’s events as I look at each “whatever comes” from a place of God first. I know right, because sometimes we just do things with our time, energy and money. We get in our emotions, we promise things without seeking and without asking Him what he wants. Just thinking God told me that once concerning my son “I’m trying to do a work in him and you keep getting in the way”.
Well, thanks for hanging out with me. It’s back to research, reading etc…… See ya tomorrow 🙂
