A Time for Renewal....

Sometimes, we need a housecleaning of the heart. ~ Catherine Marshall

The good Lord intends that His children lead joyous lives filled with abundance and peace. But sometimes, as we can all attest, abundance and peace seem very far away. It is then that we must turn to God for renewal, and when we do, He will restore us.

Have you "tapped in" to the power of God, or are you muddling along under your own power? If you are weary, worried, fretful, or fearful, then it is time to turn to a strength much greater than your own.

The Bible tells us that we can do all things through the power of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Our challenge, then, is clear. We must place Christ where He belongs; at the very center of our lives.

Are you tired or troubled? Turn your heart toward God in prayer. Are you weak or worried? Make the time to delve deeply into God's Holy Word. When you do, you'll discover that the Creator of the universe stands ready and able to create a new sense of wonderment and joy in you.

I don't always know what to say to your posts because of my own 'head place'. I visit you just about every day. I read everything you post. I hate to say that when it's focused around your passion, your relationship with God and JC and your journey...I don't know what to say. So I am saying, I read everything you write. I think about it. I just wanted you to know. Please don't be offended.

Pam, I'm just thrilled you come by and visit. When we visited Claire all those years ago in C.Spgs, who would have thought that her dear friend and neighbor, and her aunt, would end up blogging together and becoming friends?! I am going to email you with a little more but I did want to say that I am so glad you come by everyday...whether or not you comment!! :)
