Join me...Week 1

Join me....For a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or what ever you like. Sit back, relax and join me every Sunday as I look deeper into God's plan for us.

After this last weeks events with our son, I need this now more then ever! This last Friday we were forced to pause everything in our life and get re-centered on what is really important. It has been a tough week trying to get back on track and our son still not feeling well so I hope this helps me and you get through this crazy thing we call...life.

God has worked so many miracles in my life that I can not deny Him. I love Him and want to know Him on a deeper level. Right now, in my life, I kind of feel like one of the first followers of Jesus. Just blindly following Him, trusting Him with my life, and watching the miracles happen. But like them, I too, stumble. I don't ALWAYS trust. I don't ALWAYS give everything. I don't ALWAYS serve others. I question Him. I wonder why he has done bad things to me and my family. I can not see the reason behind situations even though I so badly want to.
This is why I want to know Him on a deeper level. There are so many people in my life that already do and I want to be more like them. I want to read the Bible, and know what it is saying and what it means. My knowledge and understanding of the book are so basic that I find myself reading children bible stories to my kids and liking them better. Easy to read, short stories, with pictures! I laugh at myself because this is what I like, but I know I want more. I want to go deeper.
That's why I have decided to read a verse or story from an adult version of the Bible and share my thoughts with you. I hope you come along on this journey with me. Get to know Him on a deeper level with me. (Or help me by sharing your thoughts) I really would like this to be interactive so please share your thoughts, favorite stories or verses, and what is in your mug while you read.
Join me next week as we dive into our first verse.

  1. Hi! I'm Angela. I'm fairly new to this whole blogging thing and am pretty much in the same place as you spiritually. I've been a believer my whole life, but never really cared until recently. I believe that there's a wonderful unfolding of Jesus and God's ultimate purpose if we are patient and seek Him.

    Looking forward to your thoughts!

  2. I am glad you are joining me. Living a life like Jesus is hard when you truly try. Be nice to everyone...all the time! Know that your pain is for a reason? Take up a cross and follow Him into death? Easier said then done. I can't wait to hear your thoughts too
