...still learning...

Happy Halloween everyone! =P I've been trying to blog for the past couple weeks, but nothing I've wrote in that time seemed to be right. God has been doing so much in my life lately that I've been having a hard time trying to figure out how to put it all into words. I don't think I will ever be able to sum it all up in a single blog, but today I'm here to say this...

I am ready to stop fighting. Fighting God, fighting people, fighting life. It's time let go of control.

~I'm learning to surrender my life to God.
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." Proverbs 19:21

~I'm learning to be a better friend.
"If one falls down, his friend can help him out. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!"
Ecclesiastes 4:10

~I'm learning to love even when its hard.
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."  1 John 4:18

~I'm learning to rejoice always.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice." Philippians 4::8

~I'm learning to always forgive.
"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times." Matthew 18:21-22

~I'm learning to laugh more.
"A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones." Proverbs 17:22

~I'm learning to trust God...for real.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

~I'm learning to put others needs before my own.
"...Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than this..." Mark 12:31

These are only a few of the many things I'm learning. Present tense---learning. It's a daily process, but I'm trying and God has been faithful so far and I know He always will be!

God bless. =)
