I'm on journey.
We all are.
As a child of God, I'm on His journey, not mine.
Every once in a while, I get side tracked, knocked off course. I lose my way.
More than anything in the world, I want to be the woman God created me to be.
I became a Christian in 2004. I was almost 27 years old. I was a wife and a mom of a two year old. My life changed...it wasn't over night, but slowly, I started seeing the world differently, with the eyes of Christ.
Now, I'm not perfect.....NO! Not by any means, and I will NEVER claim to be. I've got a long way to go before I am truly the woman God created me to be.
I have a bad temper. I don't beat my kids or cuss my husband or anything. I just yell. And ya'll, there's so many days where I just haven't liked myself because I yelled at my kids. I reacted instead of responded. Yes, there's a difference.
I have a time management problem. I like blogging and Facebook and Pinterest and Etsy, and....well, you get the idea. Before I know it, I can lose track of time and that causes the laundry and dishes to stack up, the school work not to get done, or the Sunday school lesson to get prepared an hour before church.
And there's this four letter F word that I have a problem with.....food. I like to eat. Bread, Snicker's bars, scrambled eggs, watermelon, cantaloupe, macaroni and cheese, Big Macs, onion rings.......see. I like food and coffee, and Dr. Pepper. Needless to say, I don't always make the healthiest choices.
I've also been know to get into gossip. I wouldn't call myself the town gossip. There's so many things I am totally out of the loop about, and sometimes, well, ignorance is bliss. There are times, however, I have gotten into conversations I was not proud to be in. Either I said some things that I wasn't proud of, I didn't stand up to someone for the things she said.
My friend, the list could go on. Although I proudly call myself a Christian, I admit, I am sinner. That's why I need Christ in my life.
So, I am on a journey. I want to be the woman God has called me to be. It isn't always easy, but I must make the effort.
And that brings me to this....
What journey are you on?
What is that you struggle with? Is there a relationship that needs healing? Is there a habit that needs breaking? Is there a lifestyle change in order?
I would love for you to work with me in getting back on track. Let's join together in strengthening our relationship with Christ to become the women He has called us to be.
The first thing you can do is click HERE. This is a simple, short survey that will show me the needs that women have, the areas in which they feel they can/want grow.
At the end of the survey, you have the opportunity to help me write my first book. Yes! I have decided to write my first book, but I can't do it alone. If you would like to help (and you may remain anonymous, there will be an opportunity for you to do so.
Secondly, if you have decided to join in this journey, I will contact you with the specifics.
God has given us a life worth living. This is our time to get back to basics and get back to our calling as Christian women.
I look forward to hearing from you. Also, if you know someone who would like to join in or may appreciate this post, please share it with them.
