Complaining May 19, 2008

I’m just gonna be totally real with you all: I feel like my last post was just a big ol’ complaint! God slapped me in the face this weekend when I realized how much I complain and how much He has blessed me with! We did really well at the garage sale…way better than I thought we would. I wasn’t sick the entire weekend…I haven’t taken my “happy” pills since last Thursday!! I even got to sing on Sunday for the first time in weeks! I loved being back.

I feel like I’ve also been a jerk lately to people in my life. I haven’t been myself. Needless to say I have a lot going on in my head right now. I’m still trying to adjust to being pregnant and all that comes with it. My walk with Christ is definitely not where I want it to be, which I am working on. Not that any of that excuses my behavior, but if I have offended you or been rude (anything that has been uncharacteristic of me), I am deeply sorry!


Accountability January 17, 2008

In my post about New Years’ resolutions…one of mine was to get into accountability with someone.

Well, that is one resolution I’ve kept so far in the 2 weeks of the New Year. I have this awesome friend named Sarah who just moved here from out of town and I really believe that God put both of us in each other’s lives for this very reason. We met for the 2nd time tonight and it is just awesome and challenging and I kind of feel like I’ve been punched in the stomach. What a necessity for the Christian life! I’ve always known this and I have tried to pursue it before but it never worked out either for me or for the other person. I know this is going to stick because we both need each other so badly.

So, are you in accountability with someone? If not, you need to be…you are missing out!
