Go to God + new blog soon

"God is there. Once your mind is truly filled with that thought, when you experience difficulties it will be as easy as breathing for you to remember, 'My heavenly Father knows all about this!' Before you formed this concept of divine control so powerfully in your mind, you used to go from person to person seeking help, but now you go to God about it. God is my Father, He loves me, and I will never think of anything that He will forget, so why should I worry? Prayer is not only asking, but is an attitude of the mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural." --Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest.

I am loving My Utmost for His Highest, it's such a good devotional. Convicting, challenging, encouraging... This was a good reminder to me that I need to go to Him more, not to people. He really does want to be involved in every detail of our lives. And yep, He knows all about this .. about that: and He's got a plan. With Him holding our future we've got nothing to fear.

I'm wanting a fresh start. I'm thinking of starting a whole new blog, blog name, design, style, and new goals. So, stay tuned while I'm working on making that happen. I'll keep you updated.

In the meantime: your thoughts please! What kinds of posts do you enjoy the most? Tips on making my posts better? Whatever comes to your mind, tell me!

Can't believe it's December already. Hopefully the new blog will be up and running for the new year, 2016.
