Time and giveaway

15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Ephesians 5:15-21

Am I making the most out of the time I have for the kingdom of God?

Well this weeks sermon was based on Eph 5:1-21. Our pastor challenged us to reexamine our schedules to see if and how we are honoring God with the time he's given us. He gave us a chart to fill out our schedule so we could evaluate our week. Do I honor him in my relationships? Do I spend time seeking to know Him. Where am I wasting time. Are there things in my schedule that are unnessesary. Am I taking care of my body because my body is the temple. That makes me think twice about the next piece of something sweet I take:-)

The message made me think and I know one way I honor God with my time is when I share His love with my blogging friends.. Or when I do something nice for one of them. I'm going to make a list of each person who follows my blog and start to daily pray for you. If you have a request or just need a friends caring ear I am here:-) I'm going yo pray for 60 days specifically for you to come to know Gods love ...for you to feel Christ's love thru me . If you don't have him in your life I'm going to pray you will want him in your life and understand how very much he loves you. I want to be a good friend and hope to gain your friendship as well as I stitch and share my love of crafts. And I'm going to ask you to pray for me too.

Oh..and guess what..its my birthday. So I will be offering a special giveaway of goodies. It will be a surprise so no pictures...but you will love it. You Dont have to be a follower to win. The only requirement is this.

  7. Happy Birthday! I'll say 29, but I won't say how many times you've hit your 29th bday. :) I'm currently praying that I get to keep my job and get approved for my upcoming interview, so if you'd like to add your voice that would be wonderful. Many blessings to you.

  8. I'm horrible at guessing ages bit my family does need some prayers. My husband and I have both been unemployed since June and we would really like one of us to get a decent job (because the other will be a stay at home parent).
