Making an effort…

“A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump; a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.” Proverbs 11:28

Ahhhh… this life is so full of twists and turns, surprises and disappointments, but ultimately (and this is a truth I’ve recently grasped yet, again) it’s NOT ABOUT ME! I forgot this and made it about me for a while there, but thankfully, God is faithful and persistent, and I’ve been reminded. When I try to shape my life it’s often a mess… an unrecognizable, misshapen lump, but when I let God do what He does it’s always a thing of beauty. I may not always appreciate it right away, but there is always a purpose and a plan in what He lays out for us.

  2. I’m truly loving the design and layout of your site. It’s very easy on the
    eyes making it far more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

  3. I don’t make it a habit to make comments on numerous articles, yet
    this one deserves attention. I agree with the information you have written so eloquently here.
