Last week I wrote about the BIG question - what I want for Christmas from the One & Only, God.
This week I am going to go off that, but with my personal Christmas list. Bare with me because I think this will be hard. I'll do half my list this week & the other half next week.
Me. God fix all my brokenness I may have. Fix my "moods" that each
& every woman has, but let me be able to control those. Let the
words that flow out of my mouth be pleasing to the Lord & everyone
that I am speaking to. Rid my negativity. Rid any judgmental thought
that ever crosses my mind. Let me stay crazy in love with Jesus Christ.
Don't let me fall away. Make 2013 the best year I've ever lived on this
earth. Make me a better person God.
I have 2 weeks left to fix all this. Impossible? No. Because through God ALL things are possible. Will it be hard? Absolutely. So hard I am scared, but Philippians 4:13 -- I can do EVERYTHING through Him who gives me strength.
This week I commit myself to...
1. Fix any brokenness in my life - praying that anything that is holding me back from living my life the way God has it planned for me, revealing those things of brokenness that I am unaware of. Psalm 147:3 -- He heals the brokenhearted & binds up their wounds.
2. Fix my moods - woo. This is the one that I am scared of attempting. I am afraid I will fall off the wagon with this. What? I am only human after all, not to mention a woman. A woman of many different feelings = many different moods. Jesus felt EVERYTHING we have ever felt. He walked a shameless, a sinless walk here on Earth. If He fought off temptation God gives us the power to fight it off as well, if we let Him. Hebrews 4:15 -- For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have One who has been tempted in every way, just as we are -- yet was without sin.
3. Let words of the Lord flow out of my mouth that is not only pleasing to Him but everyone else - this means biting my tongue, submitting, obeying.. Not just to humans but to GOD. Psalm 16:8-9 -- I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand & I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad & my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.
4. Rid my negativity - I'd like to think I am a fairly positive person, but I do have a negative side. Philippians 4:8 -- 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.
Please pray for me this week!! I strongly encourage you to jump on my list & try to improve yourself in these areas. I need some encouragement & I know that you will to. I am here for you!!
