Today was a GREAT day! Two of my girlfriends and I went spring clothes shopping. It was such a nice time. God truly is adding to my life. After a long 4 months of not hanging out with many friends, staying in pretty much every night, and truly only having God to turn to, He has placed two amazing women in my life to help encourage me through this journey, to be a testimony to them, and to finally get out and live my life!!! I just had another friend invite me to a cookout this weekend! I'm so glad that I'm finally getting out of the house to share this WONDERFUL love with others!
I do believe that I put a lot of margin in my life for God. He is with me always. He is my best friend. I speak with Him constantly. The best time that I added margin in my life is in the morning. In my last post I explained where I added my margin, but my favorite time of the day is the morning! I love waking up every morning, praising God and thanking Him for the day, reading my dare, reading the Bible, and praying. He keeps waking me up earlier than I want to wake up, but I take that as an opportunity to spend more time with Him. I believe that if God opens up time in your life, that you should take advantage of it!
I believe that I have gotten rid of most of my wrong motivations. I continue to pray and ask God to reveal these to me if I have more.
Sounds like you are doing good. Just be cautious. Sometimes it is very easy to depend on God and turn to Him when life is beating us up and we have no one else. It is great that you have good friends in your life. Just be careful not to limit your time with God when He is blessing you. Keep it up, I have been greatly encouraged by reading your posts.
Thanks for the reminder Leslie! I am telling myself this all the time as well. I need Christ everyday, all the time, not just when I'm hurting.
Remember, if prayer is not on your lips, praise should be!
