Commitment Day 2
Committed to Being a Child of God

I have thought about this post all day, but work and life in general has kept me from being able to sit down and write the words. I’ve also been a little hung up on how to share what is on my heart.
In reality it is so simple, but I battle with the simplicity. Why? Because it is the most amazing, awe-inspiring, unbelievable but believable thing…
I am a child of God.

Since we’re going to spend this month focused on commitment, I have to share with you who I am. I encourage you to think about who you are. Did you get to read the post from yesterday?
So, I am a daughter of the Living King. I have a worth greater than all earthly things.  Worth far more than rubies. Proverbs 31:10.
“For everyone born of God overcomes the world.” 1 John 5:4
Did you read that verse?! Every one of us who has been born again has the power to overcome the world!

The worth I have because I belong to Christ is amazing, really at times it is ungraspable, but it doesn’t end there. As a child of God, the very Spirit of Christ dwells in me. (Romans 8:10-11)
“If you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:13-14 There is so much in these verses…. Perhaps another day we can discuss them in more detail.

Today I just want to share these verses with you. Perhaps you’re unsure of who you are or of who you are committed to being. (I encourage you again to visit yesterday’s post.) 
More importantly I pray you’ll visit scripture and see what scripture has to say about who Christ intended you to be.
I belong to Christ. I am committed to being who He made me and calls me to be. I am His child “and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ if indeed we suffer with Him that we may also be glorious together” Romans 8:17

Are you a child of God? What are you suffering with? You do not have to suffer alone. Give yourself to Christ. Live as He has called you to live. Then, you will not suffer alone but with Christ.

Thanks for visiting Commitment Day 2. What are you committing to this month?

Tired - Competition

That was it. I was tired.
Not the tired where I will sleep well because my rest was well earned. Not the tired where you’re groggy and just need extra sleep. The restless tired. The dangerous tired. The ‘I am done with this!’ tired. Why? I was tired of competing with multiple screens: a TV, an ipad, 2 phones. Tired of competing with every professional and college sport broadcast – with the exception of women’s sports because we don’t get those on our TV. Tired of competing with presidential news and daily “to do” list that have more weight than US (as a couple). Tired of there always being one more chore before that project I want to get to can be started. Tired of the same ol' same.
In the end I was just tired.
Tired of a world where we have to compete for a loved one’s attention. Tired of competing with society’s mandates. Tired of being a slave to fashion and trends. Tired of competing with society’s warp version of pretty. Tired of competing with a supermodel’s body image.
Mostly, I am tired …

Lines in the Sand

We draw these imaginary lines in the sand… Then, the tide comes and we wonder why we must start again… We build our castle of sand and hope it stands… Then, the tide comes and we are displeased we must build again… We make our own plans as we dream on the shore, Then, the sun sets and we wish for more.
We wish for more time to enjoy the day. We wish our lines in the sand would stay. We wish our castles could be bigger and stronger. We wish our plans would happen now and not take any longer.
We draw these imaginary lines in the sand… Then, the tide comes and we wonder why we must start again… We build our castle of sand again… Then, the tide comes and we are displeased we must build again… We make our own plans as we dream on the shore Then, the sun sets and we wish for more.
We rise the next day and do all of this again.
We work to maintain, a new way we never entertain. We start each day as a new beginning. Always wishing for a new ending.
Yet, we continue to draw our lines in the sand. We build our temp…
