Glorify God

Man did I fail at this today. Got into an argument with someone. They are having trouble in their lives, and I've been encouraging turning to God. Their response was "he isn't going to pay my bills, he isn't going to give me money."

My response was - apparently you have all the answers and don't need God.

That's the old me coming through nice and loud, and I am not proud. I instantly responded with an apology and my sincere hope that they changed their mind.

I'm definitely down with the concept of glorifying God in everything I do. Boy is that a challenge. I wasn't looking to God when I was talking to them and it shows. Had I considered His will and tried to follow it I'm sure the conversation would've gone better, and possibly even helped them out. Now I've alienated this person for the moment, and possibly don't some harm where I could have done good.

I do keep creating posts that don't make it past the cutting room floor. I never got feedback from my questions before so have no idea how many people are actually reading this. I'm not giving up yet, but I must admit I am discouraged.

Thank you Lord - for a beautiful world, a wonderful job, great friends and family, your son, and your word.


drafts vs posts

I now have 13 draft posts on here, and 17 published (excluding this which makes it 13/18). I find myself thinking a ton about everything related to God and only thinking a bit is post worthy. If you are reading this, please contact me somehow to let me know if you are enjoying this, finding it useful, or have any other feedback. What would you like to see? What would you like to see less of?

I have to share once again how wonderful God is. I LOVE reading his word - I'm doing it daily on my own and daily sharing it with Casey. I LOVE going to church and engaging people - I wish I could do that all the time. I implore all my readers to pick up the bible more often. This is a gift from God! Thank you Lord for everything you have done, are doing, and will do for us. Thank you for your love, patience, and forgiveness.

I find it easier and easier to follow what the bible teaches. I'm finding it easier to lean on and ask God for guidance in my life. I find living more enjoyable and full of goodness. I am truly being transformed by Christ and I'm loving every minute of it!

Don't have a bible? Contact me and I will get you one!
