one of his last sermons
this world is not our home
Our town is really shooken up over this tragedy ~ we need to remember daily that our lives are a gift from God and train up our children in the way they should go and to love one another each and every day. Keep your eyes on what really matters and not get caught up in battles that matter least.
Many of our distracts are meant to lure you from your destiny ~ God bless Pastor Wheaton for following his destiny and not getting side tracked from his purpose and calling and sharing it with others. Lord Help me to live my destiny daily not to get side tracked with things that don't matter in my day and miss teaching my children about you and others through my example that they can see you in me> One of my life purposes is to train up my kids in the way they shall go and to love my neighbor as myself. I believe the reason for our being is to love one another as you have loved us. May I not get side tracked in complaining, or judge or trivial things that matter least. May I do what matters most each and everyday may I live a life of no regrets and may I make I raise peoples vibrations and not lower them.
We are not at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we are not at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.
One thing I struggle with is love. My first marriage failed because my husband cheated on me with several women over our 13 year marriage and feeling good enough is another area I struggle with I am trying a new career and don't feel good enough there. I am enjoying it but sometimes I feel like I don't measure up and also I long to be somewhere else and not always happy where I am. I worry and fear but am getting ahold on this. Lord help me to be content whatever my circumstances and to truly enjoy my days and not miss the gifts in them wanting to be in the future or past because today is what is given to me.
At church yesterday we had a sermon on unpacking your suitcase that we belong. We belong to god. We belong to the church ~ there is not question about it it is a given. I signed a families at our best poster a month ago as a comittment to my family to live for God and encourage my family. I belong to my family and we bought shirts yesterday that said Families at their best I Belong. This is something that I need to remember I am enough and I belong to God, my Church and My family.
Father today I choose to refocus on you I choose to overlook offenses and focus on you. I will run this race with focus on you and set my eyes on you. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. I will run the church 5km play race with my son and I will ask someone to come with me to the Mother's day brunch with me. I will love the husband you gave to me 100% unconditionally as well as my mother sisters and god given friends and those you draw into my life for a reason.
Have you heard that it is good to gain this day? I also say it is good to fall, battles are lost in the same spirit that they are won.
Lord help me to be thankful in whatever circumstance I am in help me to remember it is a matter of perspective.
