Sorry for the double posts in one day. I started this last week and never to back to it.
Just a quick update on my life! I took a year leave of absence from teaching to give my time and full focus on my family. God has been calling me to do this for about 8 years and I am finally being obedient!! I cannot begin to tell you the many blessings I have already experienced!!!
Now that I have more time (during the time my girls are at school), I have decided to start a new faithbook. In the past my faithbook was all about recording different aspects of my faith. This time my focus is growing and strengthening my relationship with The Lord. I am really excited about this journey. I will be sharing my journey here as well!!
I have decided to use the SN@P 6x8 album. I like the flexibility in LO types I can create!! Here is my first LO about why I am doing this faithbook!
This week I am working on creating a title page for my new book. I hope you'll stop by and check it out!!
This week the focus is attitude!! I know this is definitely a struggle for me. There were multiple areas of attitude that she spoke of that I find in my own attitude. Today I am focusing on how often I get caught up in comparing myself to others. It usually leads to one of 2 things - feeling like a failure or criticizing the other person so I can feel superior. Neither of these reactions reflect the attitude of humility God calls me to have.
Their is a wonderful list of verses at the end of the chapter. Today, I felt the need to reflect on
Philippians 2:5 - "Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
I liked the Life Application Bible notes on this verse. They reminded me of several aspects of Christ's attitude
- "Jesus was humble"
- "Like Christ we should have a servant's attitude, serving others out of love for God and others..."
- "Remember, you can choose your attitude."
That last note hit hard. There are so many times I let circumstances or other people's attitudes determine. I have become a very reactive person. This week I want to really focus on choosing my attitude and having it be a reflection of Christ's humility. I know with the guidance of the Holy Spirit this change will be made!!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you week is off to a good start!
