It's Friday! This has been quite a long week and last weekend was so busy for us that I feel as though I didn't even have a weekend. So I am honestly so excited for Friday night with my family. Do you have big plans this weekend or just going to relax with the family?
Well, I decided to join in once again with Five Minute Friday, so here goes.
When I first saw the word beyond, two thoughts popped into my head and I would like to share both.
First is the fact that God has taken me beyond my wildest dreams. When I started blogging only fourteen and a half months ago I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't sure who would read, what God had planned or why me. But here I am fourteen months later and God is birthing new dreams, visions and ministries in me. And it all started with with the word blog.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, "'I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord. 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans for a hope and a future.'" God knows His plans for me, I simply need to say yes. He knows the plans He has for you. Are you ready to say yes?
The second thing I thought of was my family. We have experienced some rough days lately. You know when you try are really trying to do something good Satan seems to attempt to block you at every turn? That is how it has been. I have been trying to live courageous, I have been trying to be a loving parent and serve joyfully but it seems the more I try the past couple of weeks, the harder it is. Have you been there? But when I look at my precious children, I am beyond amazed. The kids may do something that frustrates me and makes me think, "really kids?" But my love for them never fades. My love for them grows stronger each day. They are incredible. Yesterday my kids were outside playing when they began to disagree about something which let to a fight which caused this mama to become frustrated. But then a short time later I hear the sweet laughter of my boys as they are once again playing and my precious daughter comes up and recites her Bible memory work to me again. And I think God you have blessed me beyond what I can imagine and I thank You. How has God blessed you?
Have a fabulous weekend friends.
