Hello World

Well, here I go.  Sharing myself with the world.  Giving my ideas, telling of my struggles, sharing my beliefs.  My prayer is that all who find me, will be blessed.  Blessed in their business.  Blessed by their thoughts and awarenesses being challenged and changed. Blessed by connecting with others who want to live a life that is honoring and pleasing to Jesus.

So, this brings me to my first thing to share: Is it possible that we might be pleasing to God?  After all, we are sinners.  We are living in this degraded world with all sorts of things to distract us from the very thing that we were created for; which is to contain and express Christ.  I know just trying to get thru the day sometimes is a struggle: paying bills, dealing with my kid, working, caring for my husband and household, trying to find time for friends and family, not to mention "me" time.  So it is no wonder that  I can feel disconnected, stressed or question why  Jesus would want individuals like me to serve Him. 

Well, the bible says that He came to heal the broken hearted, set the captives free and to give sight to the blind.  That describes me.  Does it describe you?  If it does, He came for us.  He died for us.  He loved us.  So, we can now love Him! If we love Him, desire to be more like Him, are willing to have Him fill us and live out of us --  then we are pleasing to Him.   Nuff said.
