Growing up

I went for two training programs today and came back buzzing itching to tell someone about them but alas, there was no one to share my excitement with. Took a bit of fizz out of me but then I have to remember that I am growing up and I am weaning myself off external attention.
Have managed to do some chores and will be heading up to bed soon.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

Blogging again

It has been a long time since I had access to the Internet at home. Too complicated a tale to tell. In the meantime I have discovered Tess Gerritsen, whose writing reminds so much of Sandra Brown's writing. She is also very good and very versatile as these American writers with professional backgrounds tend to be.

I have also been attending a weekly writing course which has inspired me much and hope I will be able to build up the momentum. I have to achieve some continual discipline in one area or the other. My finances are another big area where I need to learn some discipline as well so there are quite a lot of areas to work on. And the exercise bit too which hopefully should start again tomorrow. A day at a time, Nana. Just do your best daily and let God be God in your life. He cares for you very much and you have to wait on Him and ask for the daily solutions to the issues and challenges in your life.

Thank You, Lord for today and thank You for answered prayers, Amen!

Lord, help me hear

It has been a difficult week emotionally since I feel like everything is frozen and I feel like I have made no progress at all from the previous week. I also feel a bit neglected and abandoned by the few people I am close to and I feel like no one cares about me; not in a self-pitying way per se but in an eye-opening way. I especially feel like I am not hearing from the Lord and there is this silence. What can I do to change that or what is blocking my ears, I should ask?

Lord, I continue to ask for Your mercy on me and help me walk out my destiny in Jesus's Name, Amen.

Help me completely wean myself off people too, Amen.

In Your Hands, Lord, in Your Hands

I am finally feeling much better today and more like myself. So many disappointments on so many fronts but today I felt very optimistic at my writing class; only to come home this evening to hear a bit of criticism from family. Not hurt about it but feeling like will I ever break through and garner respect in one form or the other? He who puts his trust in You will never be put to shame.

Lord, into Your Hands I commit all of my affairs. Help me to be disciplined and alert to Your leading and to Your touch, Amen.

Still pressing on and looking for healing

Really feeling run down today; went to the dentist as well to have some more work done on my gums. Not very nice but not as painful as with the first visit. What to do? I am doing my best to eat well, pray, and do what needs doing to get completely healed of this cold.
Lord, grant wisdom as to exactly what is wrong with me and grant me the answers, please.
Thank You that I am enjoying my work in school very much. Thank You for Your mercy always, Lord, Amen.

Back again

I haven't been here to write in a while because of technical problems and it has not been very helpful to the momentum I was trying to generate. Ah, well, what to do? I am doing my best to turn myself completely on and take the initiative in all areas of my life.
I probably need to read A Woman of Substance once again to pep me up and help me stay focused despite the many distractions and barriers.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer.
Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

I believe

I had to go out today to sort out a bill with the kids and picked up a few things for myself. It is interesting how things are so very expensive or rather how much money one has to pay for everything and it all mounts up. I know money is not the be all and end all but it ranks very highly on the list of needs and can be a source of great concern and worry. I have been trying not to worry about it and indeed I am trying very hard indeed.

The question though is how does one increase income and is it a wrong question to ask as a believer? For I do believe that indeed the Lord is able to make me prosper in the land of the living even in times of recession.

Lord, how do I make it to that next level of income? In Your wisdom, please hear me and answer me, Amen.

Thank You for another day, Amen.

Just made it through

After yesterday's writing in the morning, this evening's post is being dragged out of me. I am feeling so tired; had to do my hair, cook, clean, drop my friend at home, sort the boys out for their first day of school tomorrow and I feel very tired indeed.
I think having to discipline the boys constantly has also added to the lassitude. Great is the peace of my children for they are taught of the Lord.
Lord, thank You for obedient children by faith. Thank You for another day, Amen.
