Dear Blog.....yep that's how I blog. There are sooo many awesome (& not so awesome) blogs out there & I'm not here to compete. This blog is for ME. Now, if you happen across it, I pray that you will be inspired, encouraged & enlightened! See, this is my creative way of holding myself accountable...as I continue to learn & grow in God, raise 4 happy kids with my hubby & strive to bring some lasting organization to our chaotic house!

The Lifter of my Head...

I've been trying out my DS's new ipod touch & wanted to see what it would be like as an ereader. On the handy Bible.Is app this morning I read Ps 3.
vs 1 -4 says: O Lord, how many are my foes! Many are rising against me: many are saying there is no salvation for him in God. But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the Lord and He aswered me from His holy hill.
I thought & marveled about that for a bit & then had an aha moment & reread it to be:
O Lord, how many are my slip ups, bad habits, hassels, obstacles! Many thoughts are rising against me: many thoughts are saying there is no salvation for him her in God, you will fail, no one appreciates you, its not worth the effort. But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head, my joy & my strength. I cried aloud to the Lord and He aswered me from His holy hill, He revealed His truth, love & grace to ME.
What a truly awesome & lovely God I serve!

 So yesterday I mentioned my mile-long list for 2012. It's not a list that is written down or anything official but rather a mess of expectations that swim before my eyes whenever I think of all the things I started & never finished in 2011 + what I WISH I had accomplished by this stage in my life! While it's healthy & motivating to have a list a realistic goals etc, that is certainly not what my list is! Sooo, I do declare that my 1st 2012 goal is to write a realistic "what I want to accomplish & where I want to be by the end of 2012" list. Not too long, not too short, not overly detailed but having a clear flexible plan. Today is Friday Jan 6 so I'm giving myself until Jan 12 to have it finished & posted! TTFN
