"Whatever you walk away from, God will replace it with something better." Pastor Tim
Thursday March 29th while the kids had quiet time I sat on my bed and wondered when did my life become so busy and when did I decide that it was okay. I constantly feel like I need a break but there just isn't time for one, I need to keep going to get everything done, and keep up with everyone else. So I sat there and wondered how can I simplify my life. So I posted a Facebook status about it asking how is one way you could simplify your life and only one person answered and she basically answered exactly what I needed to hear. Way less stuff. Then she asked if I had read a book called "7" By Jen Hatmaker. Apparenetly this book could help me so she lent me the book and just from reading the introduction I knew I was given this book because it's my time to make changes in my life So Thank-You Kathy for lending me your book.
At first I figured that I would just read this book and get ideas but lets be real here, if you know me well enough, you know that I am quitter, and probably wont end up doing any of these ideas. It's so easy to be a quitter cause when you don't tell someone of your plan then when you stop no one can hold you accountable for what you are doing and push you to keep going even when you feel like you have nothing left to give. WELL not this time, Im gonna do it, Im going to make changes in my life for myself, my husband, my children and most of all for God. So like Jen in her book she has council of friends that will help her through her seven month journey, I too will have a council but instead of having a bunch of friends, Im going to choose 1 friend for each month that I believe will really encourage and push me to keep going. I even will allow this friend to yell at me (if need be) during this month but after that month it's on,haha. Now I havent chosen my council yet, but they will find out soon as I read more of the book. I have chosen my Food council person she just doesn't know yet. Hmmm I wonder who it could??? I know you all want it to be you so you can yell at me.
So this is my first post, after I talk to my first council person and they agree to be that go to person I will come back and talk about my first month. If any of you want to help me along please pray for me. Pray that I change my life, pray for my family as it's not just a change for myself but for my children, pray that through this journey I can help others, and pray that my eyes be opened.
