Late Night Ramblings

I feel so restless I just want to break out and really do something. When I say I really want to do something, I mean something for the Lord, something that builds His kingdom and glorifies Him. What do I do? Where do I begin? I need to pray about it, of course, and ask for guidance in where He wants me to go and what He wants me to do. I need to stop being lazy and start taking care of my house and the day to day stuff so that I don't feel overwhelmed and like I can't possibly leave the house and do something else when I've got so much to do at home. Isn't it funny how we sabotage ourselves? I've got to spend SO MUCH LESS time on this computer and more time doing things that are spending good quality time with my boys while they are all home for the Summer and doing projects with them that help them to see how important it is to help and serve others. I am going to do this! I am stronger than the nagging voice that tells me to sit on my butt with a cup of coffee and the laptop for hours on end. I am stronger than the whispered lie that the kids are having fun doing what they are doing and don't care if I'm sitting in my own little world and not interacting with them. I am tired of being a victim of the laziness and lies and am ready to make a change. A change for me, a change for my kids, a change for my husband and ultimately...a change for God. Now that it's all right out there for everyone to see, I am accountable to anyone and everyone who reads this. I am going to make these changes and they start first thing in the morning. I am a new creation, darn it, and it's time I start acting like one!

Your prayers are welcome and appreciated. ;-)

I'm sending positive thoughts and prayers your way's always a tough journey but keep on talking to God for help along the way. It seems to help me along the way when I feel like I'm going the wrong way or need a little direction.
