Faith can be described many ways but to me faith is essentially believing that there is something bigger than I, Believing that just because I can not see it or taste it, It is real. It is true. It is necessary. Believing it is there and will be right,
I am putting EVERY single ounce of faith (right now) into knowing one clear and certain thing, we will call it x . If and only if it is to be His will it will happen. I believe it like I believe the sun will come up tomorrow morning, that sweet tea with lemon makes me smile. That when I prayed and prayed this was the answer I received “ask and it will be given to you; seek& you will find; knock & a door will open to you. for everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds: and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7: 7-8 Pretty powerful. Praying for Faith.

What a wonderful thursday morning at MOMS. I left feeling stronger and more confident than before. I am really trying to truly let it go and give it all to God. I am confident that by giving all the doubts and worries to him that I will indeed be a better wife, mother, friend, person.
There is so much weighing on my heart and I truly believe God led me to these women because he knew there was something that each of them would teach me.
One of todays questions was what we it take to make you feel free. Free from Financial Black hole! And 3 hrs after class it totally hit me. The biggest burden I have is taking care of everything! Home, groceries, cooking, cleaning. pool, garden, dogs, all sports, homework. I am (trying to) happy that hubs job is going so well. He provides for our family. I am just the extras. But my biggest confession is that I hate to pay bills. hate to deal with money. Hate to have to do EVERYTHING! so I made the executive decision that I am done with the bills. DONE! I have to LET IT GO!!! I know by releasing this burden I will Feel a sense of relief but, I too will worry if all is ok with it but again I have to let something go and this is my 1st step toward letting a little CONTROL go. Wish Me Luck!!

Isn’t this TRUE? I never really gave myself enough credit, I work part-time, I keep a nice home, cook regularly, am an active member in my church, volunteer at school, mercy I could go on and on; I don’t need too, but I do, I list all these things in my head, to Hubs when he returns home, to my parents when they call, to my girlfriends, I feel like I have to List everything I did that made the day count. Was I busy enough? Did I accomplish enough? Is it ever enough?
I am so thankful that I have found MOMS (Making Our Mothering Significant) a weekly bible study located at Harvest Church. Julie McGrath, the leader of MOMS is such an amazing speaker, sharer of stories, blogger, mother, lover and disciple of God. Her blog Ponder Truth is just beautiful. I go to it everyday and read it just makes me feel good.
I grew up and am Presbyterian and we didn’t grow up really talk a lot about religion and our faith but, this study is really opening me up and allowing me to feel more comfortable. I am by no means an authority on the subject, but I am learning, I am growing, I am a child of God and I plan to share my journey as I believe in my heart writing and sharing will help me grow.
