verse and prayers for Monday Aug 12

KRISTINEFREDRIKA - 10:50AM UTC, Aug 12th 2013


Good morning sisters:

Colossians 2:6
New International Version (NIV)
Spiritual Fullness in Christ
6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces[a] of this world rather than on Chris

This was the passage the pastor taught from yesterday. I was so excited because it was a visiting pastor who actually preached in ENGLISH! I really liked the sermon too. He talked about the importance of being 1) rooted in God but also 2) deciding to build upon that foundation by being a part of the body, reading our bible etcÂ…really good, solid sermon. Felt great afterwards.

Erika: I loved this:thanks...the thought that there are ladies praying for me really helps!
Girls, we can get through all the mess and problems of this world. We have GOD behind us, and GOD within us, and GOd in front of us in ALL THINGS. We are not of this world. We are made and bound for better, FOR HEAVEN!

Annette: hoping for a better day for you. Yesterday was good for me...another day ahead. One down, means 5 kiddies. two-three weeks left with my two oldest, most difficult kids...I remember saying I had 9 months left with them. I can do two weeks. Thank You Lord!

Steph: how was the weekend?

have a great one sisters:queen::kiss::heart1: ****************

Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Well, the kids got a lot of reading done today...I finally took my son to the library as he has been requesting for days.....and, the kids have told me that they prefer waking up to my soft gentle voice over the annoying vacuum....they want me to wake them up at 8am, it's all about getting back into's getting dark earlier:(

Good morning:),

I have started this post over too many times this morning....I lost the book I write when my iPad died....I have wasted too much time today, whew!

Ps. 27:3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.

I don't know if I chose the best verse for me today, but it feels like an upward battle for me to meet my goal of reading a book this summer and getting my daughter's to read this summer, my son is plugging youngest daughter was not thrilled with me last night when I told her that I am refusing to pay her way to the amusement park this summer. I have told her all summer that I want her to finish the summer reading program ths summer, which gives you a free pass. I am just tired of the arguing, ignoring me, staying up's time to vacuum again, my son got up a couple of hours ago to me vacuuming.....and, yes, I get yelled at by my daughters for not waking them up early...I am pretty fed is 11:54am:bigeyes3:

It's got to get better, but it feels like a battle:(, very sad about it.

Have a great day everyone:)

Steph, glad that reading over the weekend posts/prayers was uplifting. I so often feel the same way.
Remember God allows things in our life that we will never understand but you are who you are in part b/c of what he allowed you to go through. Don't get down about the past, just be thankful for where He has brought you!!!! You have come so far!! Isn't God amazing?

Annnette-- hope no Headache today!

Kris- yes, you can do 2 weeks. yes you can!!!!!! How old will the new babies be???

Good Morning,

We ended up having a really good time at the reunion. Today though, I felt so bad I actually called in to work but by the time I got to Indy I felt better. I think I might have had my first hot flash...or I broke my fever not real sure but I am feeling better now. I ended up drinking too much at the reunion and felt terrible yesterday. I felt ashamed all day yesterday and hung over. I have prayed for forgiveness I just need to forgive myself. Wallowing is just not productive.

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." (NLT)

I have come so far...I cherish the day that we get to leave this sinful world behind. Thankful that Jesus died so that our sins can be forgiven. Seeing my ex took it's toll on me also. I am so thankful that I don't have to have anything to do with him. God knows I do not know what I ever seen in him. I am ashamed of ever being with him and all the years that I lost.

Let go...Let go and let God Amen

Catching up reading the post from you ladies this weekend really has helped lift me up.

Today is the day the lord has made. I hope you ladies have a wonderful day.
