Recently, I have found myself lacking daily in joy and contentment. I've been on edge and restless. Contentious, even. I sure didn't like myself very much during this dry, dark, deserted period.
I am always looking outside of myself for answers to my thoughts and questions, but they never satisfy. But I found the One who can!
I realized I had been allowing the cares of this world to steal away my quiet time with God. When I try to do everything my way, nothing ever works out. How many times have I been around this mountain already? Can I get an Amen!
After Alfred leaves for work I now read my Bible and pray. Then I watch Joyce Meyer's teaching for the day. I like to take notes as I watch to help me remember important scriptures and principles. This has to be first so I am then free to focus on caring for the family and home God has blessed me with. There is simply no other way around it...God must be in first place!
Hopefully I have finally learned my lesson because it sure gets tiring walking around the same old mountain! I'm ready to pass this test and move on up!
