Thou Shalt..

Week two of the Ten Commandments of Family at MBC left me feeling like

Here is the second commandment:
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Or in Simpler terms: NO Other Idols

Before I complete this post I must tell you what I read THIS morning in my time with the Lord and how grateful I am that He is ALWAYS right on time: 1 Samuel 10:6 "The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person." You will need to read this in context to fully understand and I am not one to pick out a scripture and say that "the Lord spoke to me" BUT what a wonderful reminder that when we give our lives over to the Lord we are changed ! Forgiven! Free!! NEW!!

Can I get an AMEN!!?!

Anyway :) I have been searching my soul and here are the things that I put before God and I am confessing them to You in hopes that He gets all the glory for changing me! I am a work in progress and don't need your approval. I just might could use some grace.

1) Approval (ha..see last sentence) I make myself SICK over what others will think when I make a decision. I really do put people in a place to tell me what I should do when the only one I am to be controlled by is Jesus. His word.
2) Success/Winning. I don't think that success is a bad thing. In fact overcoming and achieving are things that can be found over and over again in scripture but I would say that 80% of my day is planning, striving, and chasing after success. Success in relationships. Success with money. Success with a healthy workout/nutrition plan. Success in work. I must give up control.
3) Facebook, Iphone, Internet: All of these things have been chosen over spending time with the Lord at one time or another.

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

Wordy Wednesday

Sundays sermon at MBC has me thinking..still..and its Wednesday night!! I learned so much about putting God F.I.R.S.T., was heavily convicted about how I spend my time (mostly on facebook and blogging sadly), and shoved right into my Bible. I heard a fabulous song not long after leaving church and I had the privilege of hearing this song live at the ewomans conference last month. I hope this song speaks to you like it has to me this week. I pray that I don't "go through the motions" I pray that I "don't waste a single day"

This might hurt, it's not safe
But I know that I've gotta make a change
I don't care if I break,
At least I'll be feeling something
'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
"What if I had given everything,
instead of going through the motions?"

No regrets, not this time
I'm gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love make me whole
I think I'm finally feeling something
'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of this life

'Cause I don't wanna go through the motions
I don't wanna go one more day
without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don't wanna spend my whole life asking,
"What if I had given everything,
instead of going through the motions?"

take me all the way (take me all the way)
take me all the way ('cause I don't wanna go through the motions)
take me all the way (I know I'm finally feeling something real)
take me all the way

Bare Buns

Well, first I should apologize for my absence from the blogging world. It seems that achieving a 90 day goal will just flat wipe a girl (and her husband) out. We have been enjoying some much needed down time! Next month I begin work on a four month goal to running in my second ever marathon. May 1 the training begins so there is still time for you to volunteer to be my running partner and run the October 23rd marathon in New Braunfels with me.

If you don't think you are up for a marathon Kyle found this article and emailed it to me. He double dog dared me (HA) to do this...its not my style but I wanted to post it so that you know what your options are!

Shed your clothes for Bare Buns 5K

Felt a little encumbered in the Capitol 10,000 last weekend? Peel off your clothes and join the Bare Buns 5K this Saturday at Star Ranch, a nudist camp 20 miles east of Austin.

Yes, the runners are nude, for the most part. Some women wear jog bras.

It’s part of a series of runs at nudist clubs in the southwest region of the United States. The Star Ranch is a family-oriented mobile home park and residential community.

“Ours is always the first of the season,” says David Phillips, who is helping to organize the event.

“Having worn my own rut in the glorious path around Memorial Park in Houston for several years back in my running days, I can tell you that our run is no walk in the park,” Phillips says. “The terrain here is uneven, and our soil is mostly beach sand. If there has been no rain for a couple of weeks before a run, that sand affords no real traction.

For you runners who want a challenge but don't care for a marathon you should looking into the ARC Sprint Series. It's a series of 4 races. 2 10k's and 2 5k's. I am signing up for the first race tonight! Join me!!

Move it or Lose it

Just a quick post since I have been MIA from the blogging world this past week.

"Move it or Lose it sister", says Lloyd Christmas in the 1994 comedy (which just happens to be one of my all time favorite movies). This week I feel like saying. "move it AND lose it" 'cause I just can't find anything! On Saturday night we spent the night in our new home. We aren't home owners yet but the wonderful builder was gracious enough to put us on a lease purchase program since we are self employed and need one more year of 10-99s (fun). We love it! Our home is 3 bedroom 2.5 baths and about 800 square feet bigger than we are used to :) I can't wait to have family here this weekend but I can't find anything in the disarray of boxes in my garage.

What are your Easter plans?
