God Stop Friday!


WOO HOO!! It's Friday!!! Are y'all as happy as I am?? This time next week, I'll be into full blown Summer mentality!
Thank you Jesus. I truly thank you for another good year of school and teachers.
I just love Patty and the fact that she causes me to stop and reflect how I've seen God this past week. I hope you have a fabulous weekend Patty. You are a treasure to all of us who call you friend!
There are many things that God and I are working through but I believe the biggest one right now....is this....
"We're moving forward, Fran."
I have felt this deep desire within my heart that He is pushing me to go into areas of ministry within my church that I normally don't go. I might dabble here and there, but there is something different brewing and I'm waiting for the glorious revelation! :)
So, in the meantime, I'm already asking Him for the strength and courage that I will need as He reveals His path.
He's also telling me it's time to step it up a notch with complete passion for Him. And, I think He's telling me to live fully in Him. I'm already passionate for Him, but in some areas of daily living and in certain relationships, it's time to step it up and QUIT LIVING IN MEDIOCRITY!!
So....I'm ready. I'm willing. I know I am able through His Holy Spirit within me!!
Have a great weekend doing whatever it is you have going on and whoever it involves! Just don't forget to take hold of Jesus in everything you do and with everyone you are around!!
Be free. Be full. Be alive!!
Hugs and blessings~
Fran

Fran,
You are so sweet and just love you so much!! I have been excited for you for some time. I cannot wait to see where God leads you!! Your love for children and women's ministry is amazing!! It sounds like we are at the same place. I have been waiting on God and I believe He is taking me to a new place in ministry. One thing God has taught me, chase after Him and not the calling. :o) I hope you have a great weekend filled with all kinds of delights!! You deserve it. Can I just say that I cannot look at cow without thinking of you. LOL!! You are a blessing from God!
Love,
Patty

Fran,

Thank you so much on the CD suggestion. Yes, I've done the tabernacle study a while back. In so many of her studies she does touch on this. I recall recently where she warns us that we can make an idol out of the whole diet thing, so, like you said, I'm trying to find the balance of living for God! I'll look up that CD. Thank you!

I can't wait to see where God is leading you in ministry. I know what you mean about living in mediocrity. God is convicting me on that as I read this!

Have a great weekend with your family!

Michelle

Fran,
I can't believe you are going to be in my neck of the woods and we can't see each other!! I would have loved it if you could have gone to church with me. Whenever you come bsck you will have to do just that!! I will be praying for your trip.
Love You,
Patty

I read..."I am moving" and I blinked cause I have an eye infection and can't see well and thought to self---oh my word, she's moving again so soon, that's insane. Then i saw the word "forward" and knew in my heart that's what I love so much about you that you continue to fall forward, move forward, and pay it forward in your life with your husband, your children, and ministry. You are one precious person!!!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
