“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Thoughts for 2010

Here we are 7 days into not only a new year but a new decade. I have now been married for almost a decade and have had kids for almost as long we have been in our house for a decade too. What can I see for the past decade? Marriage, home, family a lot when you think about it.
But what does this new decade hold?
Will we just continue to work, live and grow older?

So far this year God has been revealing to me that it is time for my life to count for more. I don't want to spend this decade just living for me but I want to live this year living for eternity making my time here to count for eternity for this world is passing away. How am I going to do this? I don't know and that is the beauty of it, I don't really have to do it God is going to do it through me. I am praying and studying His word and He will give the opportunity.

This new year and decade has brought a renewal to me in raising my children up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Look for more to come on this subject.

Love that! Very inspiring and exciting wondering how we will be used. Are you reading any particular scripture right now or just random?
