I wasn’t going to…but here it is – 2012 Goals!

I wasn’t going to join the Goal club, but I in the end, couldn’t resist writing out a few of my 2012 goals.

In no particular order:

1. Blog/write more frequently

2. Be more active and become fit

3. Organize our home so that everything has a place

4. Make, follow and stick to a budget

5. Work on loving Christs way, starting at home with my family

6. Study my Bible daily

7. Make a dent in our debt

8. Making my Scentsy business pay for itself and then some

9. Keep up on Jeremiah’s scrapbook

10. Make great memories!

Some of those are frivolous, some are not. Every list should have some fun, frivolous type ‘To Dos’ on it!!!

What is on your list?!

In His Hands,

Peggy

PS. I thought of a few more!

Take more photographs

Take my camera with me everywhere

Make something from my pinterest weekly!

Things I’ve learned from 2011

The things I’ve learned from 2011, could also be said to have been learned from 2010. So here goes:

God is in control

I can handle a lot more than I thought…only because God is my strength

Family and true friends are priceless

Be thankful, even in grief

Sometimes, when confronted with a mirror, I’m surprised at what/who I’ve become

Having faith is an action, not a lofty thought

Life is way too short to hold grudges

Life is also too short to not forgive our ‘enemies’

All our best plans, pale in comparison to Gods perfect ones

Learning to let go takes more faith than holding on

What are somethings you’ve learned in 2011?! I’d love to know.

In His Hands,

Peggy

Trusting God?

Growing up in the church atmosphere, I didn’t give much thought to God, or searching the scriptures for myself really. I was blessed enough to have a Mom who taught me and gave me a firm foundation, even though I didn’t know it at the time.  It wasn’t until we lost Michael that I saw how firm that foundation had grown.

In the days and months after, I grew to knew this Lord and Master I believed in. Even knowing that somethings wouldn’t be answered, and something would be really difficult to accept, I loved Him to more I knew of Him. I pressed into Him more in that time than I even had before. But I needed the pressing in. We all need the pressing in.

The more I learn and talk to others, the more thankful I am for the trials in life. Those trials have given me Christ. Shown to me the character of God. Given me peace that my hope isn’t misplaced or unfounded.

How do I trust God?

By learning who He is. Searching the scriptures for His own words about Himself. Watching and waiting for His character to reveal itself.  Asking Him to show me the who, how and what of Himself.

Then the next hardest step…accepting that He IS just who He says He is. Just who I find in the scriptures. Accepting is where faith steps in.

 

 

Can you trust and accept? What’s holding you back from believing? Is it because you don’t know what He says about Himself? If so, I urge you to pour over the Word of Life. Seeking Him honestly, asking Him to show your heart and mind the truth of Him. Praying to replace the lies and unknowns with perfect knowledge and wisdom in Him. He will meet you there, right there in that moment.

 

In His Hands,
