I began a new study on the names of God.  Actually it is through church again, but before I knew that they were studying this, I had already purchased a study on this topic for myself. 

I was going through my lesson this morning and Isaiah 43 was where I ended up.  Verse 1 says, Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! Verse 7, Everyone who is called by My name and whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, even whom I have made....

What a great thing in verse one, I have been redeemed, I am His!  Sometimes I just need to be reminded of that.  Then the other verse, I have been created for His glory.   I don't know about you, but I don't always give Him glory.  Because He created me and I am His, everything that I do should bring Him glory.  Talk about convicting!  So often, I spend time trying to please the people around me, and I forget that the One that I should be pleasing is God.  My prayer is that I can keep that in the forefront of my mind and that I bring Him the glory that He deserves.

Saying Hi

Hello, I'm still here, I've just been busy.

It is finally cooling down a bit in Texas.  We are finally out the 100s!  I was just outside and the morning was perfect.  I love living out in the country where I can see the gorgeous sunrises, sunsets and the bright stars. 

Our garden flourished this summer and I have been spending lots of time freezing and canning the produce.  I had no idea that a garden would do so well in the desert but I am so grateful that it did.  We have a freezer and shelves full of produce.  I think it is slowly dying now, well, I only say that because the zucchini plants aren't producing as much. :) Now that the garden is tapering off, I may find some more time to blog.

This week, I have been contemplating on what God has done in my life.  I began a Bible study on the names of God and just looking at the list of them is overwhelming.  When I was reading through the list, I noticed how many of them I have personally experienced.  I couldn't help but feel blessed that I am His child.  He is sufficient for everything that I need and I am in want for nothing with Him as my heavenly Father.
