I am commiting to read my Bible, pray more, and to keep a journal. Not to be so quick to wrath, holding my tongue. To be content.
I read my Bible everyday already, I wanted to add more time to what I am already doing. I have a small Bible that stays open on my desk at work so I can read it at any given moment, and when I see it not only do I think about reading it but I also think about God and say a prayer. I know it is only eleven days into the new year but I have kept up wiht my journal. I read the book of James every week to my kids, (Elizabeth, Samantha, Victoria, Quincy, and Joshua), we have been doing this for about three years now. We pick a verse to meditate on for the day. I have been reading a chapter of Proverbs every morning when I get up. I have subscriptions to a few daily devotionals, Spurgeon, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Pocket Testimonies to name a few. I also have been listening to podcasts and Christian Music every day. I need constant reminders. I get distracted quite easily. I have been reminding my children too. I have been fasting too. I am fasting today. Right now I feel kind of dizzy, and I hope I don't get a head ache or get aggravated. We have church tonight and I teach 3year olds through kindergarteners, then I have praise and worship practice after. I play the piano for church. I am going to keep surrounding myself with God. I want these good new habits to stick and to be rid of the old bad ones. It would be so much easier to make a change if we didn't have to be in the world. If we could be locked away from ungodliness, but I just pray for God to build a Holy Spirit wall around my kids and I. I am a widow. I knwo the Bible speaks on widows and the fatherless. I want to learn more about what the Bible says about that. Thank you Ameerah for praying for me.
