Praying for You!

There a so many things that we can do to fill our time… before you know it the day is over, the week is gone and the years have passed…

Time has become more precious to me with every birthday that passes. Watching our children grow up, move out of our home and begin their lives is just crazy to me. I still remember them as babies and young kiddos in school as if it was yesterday. Knowing that this is Charles senior year and hearing his plans for the future is exciting, but also bitter sweet…

The feelings that I have about time, kids growing up, family dynamics shifting, and just “change” in general makes me think about my spiritual growth, my relationship with Christ, relationships with others and most importantly am I doing what God wants me to do.

I have come a long way – but I also know I have a long way to go – truth be told, I don’t believe we ever “arrive”. We may be more knowledgeable, or able to hear God’s voice clearer, but every single day we must be intentional for the kingdom.

Every day it is a choice – we have to strengthen our relationship with God our Father so that we seek His will, learn to love what He loves and learn to love others as He loves us.

So to try and wrap this up with a pretty bow on top… I want to challenge you to be intentional daily in reading your Bible, prayer, listening to the prompting of the Holy Spirit in every part of your life – at home, at work, with family, with friends, with everyone that crosses your path. Connect with someone from HFC, your learn group, or someone that has been on your heart to call. Don’t let another day, week, or year pass…

At the end of the day, I pray that you have connected with someone in some way that shows them God love. I also pray that you feel God’s love for you and that He is able!

Praying for you!
