Allowing God to Mold Us Only Makes Us Better

Inspirations from the NIV

Oh LORD, you are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand.

Isaiah 64:8

We are God's workmanship, created in
Christ Jesus to do good works, which
God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10

May you be blessed by the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 115:15
The Lord is our Creator. Shouldn't it be fitting that we allow Him to continue to shape our lives the way He sees fit? He is the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End. Therefore, He sees us from before we were in our mothers' wombs until the day we die. He knows what our futures hold, and what is best for us. He knows us better than we know ourselves. I would think that He could do a much better job at making our decisions and running our lives than we can alone. I would like to challenge everyone that reads this post to pray about every decision you make, and give Him a chance to answer and tell you what would be the best approach to whatever your question or decision to be made. If you don't already do this, please try it for maybe just 3 days and see what happens. Then let me know how it made a difference. Not the personal things necessarily, just in general. I know your decisions will be for the better if you let God have the reins.

Good Evening to All!

First thing before I do anything else, I should confess I feel so ashamed. I totally forgot to mention a public thank you to Nessa of Ramblings of a Texas Housewife for the book I won from her Give Away. It's called Extraordinary. I haven't got to start on it yet as I have been trying to read some others which she so kindly allowed me to borrow. I do however look forward to reading it. Just from her review and the jacket, it definitely sounds like one I will enjoy. I have to say, this is great! I wish I'd known about blogging a long time ago. I belong to Crossings Book Club, and the books I usually buy from them range from 16.99 to 34.99. I have drastically cut my housekeeping clients because my hubby wants me "free" to go on trips or grocery shopping (we go to the military bases) without having to rearrange my schedule all the time. Anyway, I've gone from 9 to 3 in the last few months. Needless to say, not only were my clients decreased, so were my wages. I haven't bought a book from Crossings in quite a while as a matter of priority, so these books which I have won in the Give Aways, (I also won Sleigh Bells from Cathy at http://www.latte4me.blogspot.com/. I'm excited about receiving that one as well.

Yaya, I want you to know that I am keeping you in my prayers continually about your adoption chances. Those kids are adorable. Oh, to be 30 years old again. When I tried "way back when", we didn't measure up because "the powers that be" said because we were military we couldn't provide a stable home life for children, and well, I think I told you about the other reason. I don't wish for any couple that want children, and that would love children to be barren. As old as I am now, I still regret not being able to have children or adopt.

I got tickled when I was reading your blog about The Buzz. I remember Brandi saying that she would like to put more of herself in her blog instead of filling it up with Give Aways and so on, yet I, myself would like to be able to add some Book Reviews or Give Aways to mine. I'm always afraid the post is "too wordy" and too much to read. As you can tell, I have a tendency to go on, and on, and on...... maybe some "fillers" will help that. My husband always tells me I talk too much. The problem is, I type like I talk. LOL.

I think I will give y'all a break and close for tonight.

Good Night to All and May God Bless!

Thank you for your prayers. And regarding the post above, yes, it is heartbreaking that these babies are in such critical conditions. :(
