Today was SLOW! Worked till 6:15 and still not feeling all that great…silly chest cold. Decided it wouldn’t be best to jam pack my schedule and rush to something else, so I am staying home for the night. My dgroup ended up being cancelled since our leader is sick as well. Wish I could have still met with some of the ladies, but it wouldn’t be a wise choice. (don’t like sitting things out)
My mom has a CT Scan on Friday, so if you think about us please be praying that goes well. We hope no other problem spots are found and that the cancer has not spread anywhere. The scan will also give us a base line to go back to in later checks (have something to compare to later on).
I don’t have too much to write about today, just thinking about what is needed in life. So often I start to think I need other things (money, clothes, relationship, popularity, etc.). Whatever it is that I think I need, I am reminded that all I need is Christ. I am made RICH because of Him. He makes me rich in what will last…in love, salvation, joy, peace, grace, and so much more. In Him I have righteousness and I have life. Only in Him is life found. He is what I need. He is better! I just love reflecting on that!
Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands.
Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
I keep my eyes always on the LORD.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9
I was thinking last night after posting and I thought it would be kind of cool to have some of you tell me what you would like me to talk about in some of my blog posts. It can be something you want to know about me, a topic you want my opinion on or for me to further research, or anything really. You can either post a comment with a suggestion or email me (if you didn’t want everyone to see your suggestion, you can comment and mention that you don’t want it published and I won’t approve it to be posted publicly).
