NOTE: This post is about Jesus! About my Savior, my LORD.
Over the past few months that I’ve started this blog, the Lord has made it more and more clear about how I should be spending my time and has definitely made it very clear that I cannot, CANNOT, serve two masters. I either serve him and his will for me or I make my own plans according to my own will and out of his. I pushed, I cringed, I looked the other way and drove forward as he was showing me that blogging, though innocent in it’s own form, is taking too much of my time that I don’t have. In today’s Sermon, Pastor Brent showed us through God’s word
For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
I’ve been putting way too much time not just blogging, but uploading to foodbuzz, driving into other food communities, and facebook..well, let’s not even go there, lol! I’ve actually gotten better at facebook but God doesn’t want just some, he wants all of me. So with a heart of contentment and a heart after Jesus, I’ve decided to quit foodbuzz, all food communities and update my own blog periodically as I have time. I won’t quit all together as I see my blog as a journal for my grandkids to come. I apolgize to all my foodie friends that I have become friends with and that leave the sweetest comments, but the Lord has commanded me to slow down and I need to obey. I need to be obedient.
I am a person that has so many interests, so many things I love to do. God, however, has given me things in a clear direction that I need to follow. First of all he has given me a husband and beautiful children. He has also given me an artistic ability and a heart to teach and has paved the way for that.
I’d like to go back to this one day…if He say’s I have time
He opened the door of freelance work through Phileo Design. He most recently opened the door for me to teach Web Design at a local community college. He threw that door wide open for me and I need to see what His plan is there. I don’t know what or where I will be in the next few years, but I do know that I want it to be according to His will. I want to live my life for Jesus and I want him to be happy with me. I want to do the best to help my family and to raise my children to have a heart for the Lord. Whether they stay or stray, I want them to alway’s know that God loves them.
So I do have a few posts waiting but since school will start here in the next couple weeks, my posts will slow down and my real life will resume in His love and in His mercy!
Before I peace out, lol, I want to share an amazing ministry based out of Uganda. Check out on Earth as it is in Heaven. Katie shares her love for Christ and her passion for children in Uganda without the hope of an education to send them to school and most importantly show them the love of Christ. Her passion, her faith is so inspiring. If you can, check out how you can support and help a child through school.
