Something I am working on...

For Christmas, I received a book - God's Promises for Your Every Need. I love it. When I have a few extra minutes or longer sometimes, I read it. The book is broken up into 9 different sections, most having numerous sub-sections. One (two actually) verse that I have read a few times now that I believe would help me in many aspects of my life is:
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:31, 32

These verses, this concept has really been speaking to my heart lately, and I just felt like sharing it with you! In all aspects of life, with all relationships this is great instruction.
I always feel better when my relationships are pleasant and courteous, but there are times when arguments and bitterness occur. God is working on my heart to change my thought processes and I am seeing myself becoming more of what He wants me to be. I pray that it is a continuous change and that I stay open to the will of the Lord.

This is not a New Year's "Resolution" but I am making changes this year, and I look forward to sharing the journey with all of you! Please feel free to leave any thoughts, suggestions, advice or your own journey with me!
I hope that you have a very blessed day!

  1. I wrote that book down for future reference. Is it something you think I would enjoy? And, that's a great resolution, regardless if it is New Year's or just a determination.
