this and that

It has been a little bit since I have done a blog but it is time to get back in the game.  I took the summer off from a few different activities and things to really pour into my family.  Let me tell you it was so worth it.  We had an amazing summer cram packed with great family time and many memories.  Disney was definitely at the top of the list.  But this past week our daughter went back to school, starting 4th grade, and so it is time to get plugged back in.  This is going to be a few random thoughts and the things I took away from them or the lessons that God showed me.  August 15th was my last day at the job that brought me to Tennessee.  It was tough to say goodbye but so exciting on the other hand.  From this experience I learned that you have the ability to set the tone for that experience.  How do you want to go out? and how do you want to be remembered?  I gave 110% right up to the time I walked out of the door.  This firmed up the times that I had a chance to share the Gospel.  My walk matched my talk.  Do everything we do to honor God!  I left honoring my God, my boss, and that company.  August 16th came next.  Brandi and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary this day.  That is a great reminder that GOD CAN.  God has not just restored that relationship but He has strengthened it, made it new, and made it something truly special today.  No matter what you are facing or going through, there is ALWAYS hope in the blood of Christ.  There is no such thing as too much, too many, or too far for the God that we serve.  Lastly, is the new job I am taking.  This is going to be such an amazing opportunity to be a part of such an incredible team.  Here is what this chapter is teaching me early on.  We never get to a point that we are above an attack or temptation.  Jesus was tempted so lets not think we are beyond it too.  The enemy will use any and all chances to whisper to us about fear, doubt, worth, etc.  Remember that those things are not from God.  My mentor reminded me “to not doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.”  When you know it is from God, move forward and never look back.  God will not leave us or forsake us.  Look back at times that God has come through and lean on them.  This is why I feel that keeping a journal is so important.  It is our historical data.

Today is the day that I will fully trust in God all areas of my life!
