Waiting for My Go

For so long posting on my blog was effortless but since August I have struggled. Part of that struggle was because I felt like I did not have freedom to post. Don't get me wrong, my head would say, "Oh that is a post!" but the Holy Spirit would say "Wait...you are not ready to post that yet."

Most of the fall, I've been waiting for God's "WAIT" to turn into "Go."

I feel in my heart that "GO" is coming in January.

I'm thrilled and excited and praying that the two of you who still stop by will join the conversation. The topic you ask?

Well...it was birthed from this post.

I shared the link to this post on my FaceBook page back in October. Under the link in the comments, one of you said that you agreed, but you were honest enough to say what I believe a LOT of us are feeling! Here is this precious friend's comment:

"thanks, exactly on my mind already last week or so, I just don't know how, you know? Seems like everything is a no, honestly I feel sort of stuck. I am praying though, anyways, thank you for sharing"

If we are honest, there are times we ALL feel like everything is a "no". This comment pinched a nerve in my heart and I have not been able to forget it.

Let's talk about it! Let's start a conversation...bounce ideas around...better than that...

Let's open up God's word and see what He says about personal holiness and purity! And HOW IN THE WORLD, do we live a holy life in this unholy world!

I'm praying you will join us, goodness knows we need each other.

January..

As we begin a new year, will you join me? Let's walk this road together and encourage each other to apply Philippians 4:8 to our everyday life.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Well, Stephanie my friend, consider me "one of the two"! I will certainly be anxious to join in this discussion with you come January!

I'm in...because obviously personal holiness and purity is a topic that is important to me. I dedicated an entire week of my Bible study..the Legacy study...to holiness. Can't wait!

Sweet friend I am in on Phil 4:8 for sure! Our fam was just talking about it being a goal that should be only the words and thoughts that we have, lining up with that! Would love to be part of the discussion. Looking forward to you in January. And I hate Facebook. I cannot figure out how to see all the people I want to see. However, I must have missed it. :(

Also, I am starting a study on Psalm 119 and it's importance for us in hiding God's word in our heart helping us not to sin. Hope you will join me too! But no matter what I miss ya! I will be here.
Love ya!
