Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight

God has been dealing with me about several things and Sunday p. Jim and every preacher I turned to on tv said pretty much the same things. One of the biggest areas that are screaming at me right now is the phrase out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks....... I have been very emotional and angry ask me why I don't know why and seems to come in like a flood and overtake me to the point i have to go by myself and cool off. I have been taken inventory of my day to day activities, what i listen to what i watch who i talk to even. I find myself feeling weak in my walk and then condemnation sets in. I have even been having my only personal pity party. Here are the ridiculous thoughts that have come over me, i am too fat to do anything, I should find another church cuz no one really wants me there and i am one those that everyone just tolerates anyway, I am not wanted or needed, I have failed as a mom because of somes behavior issues, my marriage will never be like those of my church members, crazy right............ after week or so of all that i was reminded that if i do not take my thoughts captive this is the result. If we live in negativity then guess we will be negative speak negative and every situation will be negative and hopeless. We need to live in an intentional positive and hopeful way then everything we endeavor will be happy positive and hopeful. This is why it is important to put God in every aspect of your life....
I posted my new years resolution earlier but it was the result in the above.
James 1:19 19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
Psalm 139:23 23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Proverbs 3:3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
Then he taught me, and he said to me, “Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live.

I just saw this posted facebook and it touched my heart. I have several loved ones who are expecting and i think of those out there that are faced with a decision. If you read this or see this elsewhere please know that God loves you and life is so precious.
Here is they caption that was posted by the picture:
the Year,"...... or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact,
unless you obtained a copy of the U.S. paper which published it, you
probably would never have seen it.
The picture is that of a
21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being
operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with
spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb.
Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta.
She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at
Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these
special operations while the baby is still in the womb.
the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a
small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the
surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed
hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr.
Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was
the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during
the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.
photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors
titled the picture, "Hand of Hope." The text explaining the picture
begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas
emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph
Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life."
Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when they saw the picture. She
said, "The photo reminds us pregnancy isn't about disability or an
illness, it's about a little person" Samuel was born in perfect health,
the operation 100 percent successful. Now see the actual picture, and it
is awesome...incredible....and hey, pass it on! The world needs to see
this one See More time.......
