Jesus said pick up your cross and follow after me. Do you ever notice that sometimes the cross gets a little heavy? Is there ever a fear that grips you and you want to give up? You are never alone as you pick up the cross. God is always with you. It may not be easy everyday to pick it up and walk but God will be there every step..everyday.

I woke up very early today and I remembered that God said rise early and find me. So I did. I am thankful that I spent some quiet time with God and remembered just how wonderful He is. I watched a dvd called H2o. This particular story was comparing Barabas's possible life after he was released to a man on death row. Both were released...the man on death row was released and his father picked him up and waiting for him at home were every single family member and tears flowed. It is like our lives before Christ and the pardon we get to recieve when get saved. Amazing grace played and it was so very, very good.

My vacation ends in a just a matter of hours....and I am totally tired. I had so many things going my son's birthday parties, father's day and many other projects. I got everything but one task completed. I need some rest. I spent so much time with friends, family and completing the housework that I didn't really get the rest I needed. So I did spend some time writing today and I read the Purpose Driven Connection magazine I was given as a gift. I found my rest in God. It's a great feeling to know in the busy and in the quiet times God is there and working in our lives. I am excited to say that this has been an amazing month and I had a huge jump in visitors to site. God is opening so many doors right now all I can do is smile and say thank you God! Enjoy your quiet time and remember to find God in it.

Do you ever have one of those times when you feel like God is telling you to do something? You struggle with it for a while before you break down and listen. I have had quite a few lately. But I did do as I was told and no matter how nerve racking it was to do it I completed the tasks. It's hard to listen sometimes because we all think "no that's not God, it will pass." You have to find out does it line up with the Bible and pray about it.

I consider it a blessing to stay up late at night and help someone out. How many times do we have someone calling who's really going through some stuff and we are watching tv instead? Or we don't want to be bothered because we've got alot to do the next day? People are more important than things, tv shows, our own desires. If we all took the time to pray with people, listen, encourage someone everyday would our country be the way it is today? Take some time today for someone who needs a shoulder to cry on or just someone to talk to.

Do you ever have one of those backpack moments? For me it's one of those moments when you take that huge camping/hiking backpack off your shoulders and lay those burdens at the cross. It seems like all to often we pick them back up and are weighed down time and time again. It's time we start remembering that we don't need to take that with us. It's not ours and never was. Give it all over to God.
