personal journey

This was a journal of my progress through the book "The Purpose Driven Life"...after having read the book, I know that I've only begun to learn about God's plan for my life.

Romans 12:19

My heart breaks for the people who have suffered through the devastation that is Katrina. People on the streets, walking past dead bodies, just as though it were a war zone. How awful.

Is it a coincidence that this happens to us and our nation mere days after the last of the Jews were evicted from Isreal, while we [as a nation] did nothing?

I wonder.

Walk with Christ

No one ever said that this was going to be easy. There are so many distractions that I must overcome.

There are so many things that I intend to do in order to be a better Christian...but Satan knows me well enough to place things in my that I forget, or run out of time, or just put it off until later.

So here is confession time...I have never read my Bible. I've skimmed through it, but doctrinally, I am no good. I rely on my husband for that knowledge, and that isn't right or fair.

I always intend to read my Bible...but other things get in the way. How can I walk with Him if I don't even know what He is saying?

Another area of weakness is my inability to really talk to people about Jesus. I can spout all sorts of good news about the other parts of my life...but Jesus, the best news of all, I have a difficult time expressing.


That's really what it is. I'm still at that point where I feel bringing Jesus up in conversation [except to other Christians] may categorize me negatively.

I'm so weak.

Father God in Heaven, please use me. Guide me for Your purpose, and save me from the distractions of the world. Let my path be the one You choose, let the words I speak convey Your love. Give me strength to push aside my selfish desires. Let me learn love, and not practice vengeance.

In Jesus' name I pray...
