Felt like Spring Today!

What a beautiful day today turned out to be!  It was really a spring like day around here in Green Country.  It was one of those kinds of days that make you feel like you can accomplish anything and want to get busy spring cleaning.  I have found several things that I am donating to the sale the church I am now attending will be having soon.  So there will be less clutter in the cutest rent house ever.  I am so ready to get everything put away now that all the furniture is in place.  Everything needs a home or it needs to be out the door!  I definitely have the new mantra- something new in something old out! 

That was the decision I had been struggling with a few weeks ago.  I know I had been called to the church I had been previously attending. I have however felt for several months that my time there was done.  I am being called now to The Glory Refuge Church.  I believe I am supposed to share the things God has taught me to the girls that this church ministers to in their prison ministry.  I have a lot of lessons that I needed to learn before God would show me that way out of the valley.  My issue with food is one of them as well as the fact that God loves us unconditionally is another.  There are other issues I had to learn about as well such as handling money and taking care of myself, forgiveness.  These girls are dealing with a lot of different issues that put them where they are.  Several of them that come for the teaching this ministry offers have accepted Christ as their Savior and are turning their lives around.  It is the coolest thing ever.  God loves us all and once we confess our sins and truly repent he completely forgets about it.  These girls once they have completed the time the courts have applied for them are truly getting a new fresh start!  I just love that and hope to be a good role model.  So, needless to say I am spending a great deal of time in prayer getting ready to share what God wants me to. 

It is important when you are deciding what church you attend that you are going where God would have you to go. Don’t get fed up and leave in a huff – that is not a good way in my opinion. And if you know that God is sending you to another place be sure to let your Pastor know.  I did do that. I sent an email to the Pastor and explained why I was leaving the church.  Now I am looking forward to starting a new church and know that God will help me to soar once again! 

I am getting much closer to having my own Etsy store.  I have been given the verse that has the name in it I am meditating over it to have the name bubble up.  The verse is: 

James 1:17 KJV

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 

I love that verse – if you read any commentary about this verse the majority say that the word gift used here means both the act of giving as well as the thing given. I believe this applies to my store in that some of the profits will go to a ministry to help support God’s glory in this world.  So I am listening for that small still voice to tell me the name of the store. Meanwhile I am researching how it works and what all it will entail to keep it up and running! I am very excited about this too! 

Tomorrow morning I am back to Weight Watchers and am facing the scale- accepting what it says and am starting over.  I am not discouraged – I know what I do now to sabotage myself.  That does not mean that it is any easier – just means I am still walking it out!  

I am praying for you!
