Self Forgiveness

So one of the devotionals I keep forever in my binder is on forgiveness.

Not on forgiveness of others, but forgiveness of myself.

I know, I know...we are supposed to forgive others.  That isn't something I struggle with quite as bad.  What my big issue is, is forgiving ME.

I find myself saying "How is it that Jesus truly can forgive me, when what I have done is something I can't stop beating myself up over?"

But here is the beauty of that....

He isn't keeping score!!

Hallelujah!!




In Jeremiah 31:34 it says "I WILL REMEMBER YOUR SIN NO MORE"

When we ask for God’s forgiveness based upon Christ having already paid for our sins and  having trusted in Him as Savior and Lord, He forgives us. It is as simple as that. I fall short and he just keeps forgiving me and loving me. 

How wonderful is that? 

I guess I just need to remind myself a little more.  The sooner I let go of the things I have done, the sooner I can embrace all that He is doing in my life. <3. 

 And Knowing I have a Savior that is so great and so awesome to accept me as I am and forgive me just raws me even closer to Him day after day! 



So yep, this page is staying in my binder:)

Comment below if you have a page that you keep in your binders or if you have any thoughts on things that stay in your journals.  Would love to hear from ya.

God Isn't Finished With Them Yet

Winnie the pooh famously said “If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear”

When Moses spoke to his people in the Bible they didn’t listen because their spirits were broken. But God called for compassion on them.  

So what do you do when someone just won’t listen?  Winnie’s wise words say “be patient”. God’s wiser words say “Love is patient, Love is kind”. Love is willing to wait. 

So if you are frustrated with someone today because they won’t listen to your advice...or hurt by someone that won’t change their ways...be patient and pray. God will open their ears and heart in His time. God isn’t finished with them yetšŸ„°

Faith Journaling Walk Through

I AM NEW TO FAITH JOURNALING.

I felt so scattered in my prayer life.  I felt like I was having trouble finding time to pray or I was forgetting to pray for people.  How did people do it?  How did they manage to do a daily devotional and always pray for everyone and everything?  I wanted to be THAT person!  I was organized in all other areas of my life so I just needed a way to organize my walk with God.  So.... I got online and started researching.

What did I find?
War binder
Prayer Journal
Faith Binder

Anyway...After a whole bunch of videos, pins, articles and stuff.. this is what the end result was.

I COULD WRITE A BIG OLD LONG POST BUT I BABBLE ON ENOUGH IN THE VIDEO BELOW:)

SO HERE IS MY WALK THROUGH.
