Getting Back on Track With God's Help

How many times have we said these statements. I'll start tomorrow -- I got too many things going on in my life right now --- When I get more organized.... You know the drill. Whether it is to start exercising, eating right, reading the bible, making changes. We tend to put these things off. I know I could come up with a hundred excuses. And none of them matter.
God does not promise us a certain time on this earth. But he does give us a fresh new morning each day. And it is up to us to make the best out of each day. It is a clean slate, we do not need to dwell on past mistakes or worry about the future. We have been forgiven for our past and God holds the future. Does worry add a moment to our lives? No, but it can rob us of precious hours. God gives us a peace if we are willing to rest in him.
We have had our trials this last year and they continue. But God has given us such a peace about Wayne's healing. Wayne and I both have put our trust in God and know he has our back. He is our Guardian, our Protector, Our Healer, Our Helper. We are not alone he is with us every step of the way. I don't think we'll get an answer to our prayers for healing over night. I believe it may be a long process, and I must trust God in all the good changes as little or as small as they may be. If I can not trust Him in the small things how will I be able to trust Him in the big things.?
Jill and I are doing a Bible Study on "Made to Crave God" by Lysa Terkeurst. He made me to Crave Him, not the things in life. I would suggest you check out this book. And I would love hearing your comments. We started Faith - 101 to be an support for Women in all walks of life. We are stronger when we have support of others. So many women get missed in traditional support groups. You may be home bound. or have little children and can't afford the child care, or cannot afford the cost of the support group. What I'm lead to do is give every woman who wants or needs support a chance. Doesn't matter you age, your church, we are just a group of Christian women that want to go back to the foundation of loving and building each other up.
As I have said so many times you can build a beautiful house but if you did not fix the foundation first, it's going to fall. We must build on the strong foundation of God. Let him help us build our foundation. Most of us have the know how....but we are missing the " want to" I'm being Less Busy--- More Quiet-- So I can hear God---listen to his will. I may not have the willpower but God does. And I've got back on track with God. Would you like to join me on this journey.?
