Fitness Friday: Exercise - Let God Lead

A few years ago, at God’s direction, I walked around my neighborhood first thing in the morning. God gave me awesome blog posts and spoke to me about all kinds of things. Great start to my day, and peaceful days. I also slept very well.

A Different Perspective

Yesterday, Don and I were waiting for my car to be serviced. We found a game in a magazine where you find ten differences between two pictures. They had several issues to keep us busy, so we got to work on the first one.

Never Lord!

Never, Lord! Not you, this won't happen to you.

This is the response Peter gave Jesus in Matthew 16 when Jesus told His disciples what He would suffer, and how He'd be killed and rise again in three days.

Peace vs. Relief, Part 2 (Fitness Friday)

At the end of Part 1 (read here), I sold my house at auction to get relief from the burden of owning it. I knew it was wrong and had repented to God, but had no idea how to “fix” my mistake.

But God…my two favorite words.

Peace vs. Relief, Part 1

Years ago I had a house to sell and the Lord told me to "wait." I put up a "for sale by owner" sign, did a few open houses (I drove from Raleigh to Maryland to show it on weekends), and then did nothing. As it sat for months, I had complete peace about the lack of activity. But others counseled me to get a realtor and just get it sold, if for no other reason than to stop making house payments.

As time went on and God stayed silent, I started to get restless. When I prayed, I still had peace about doing nothing. But then I allowed my logical, analytical mind to take over.
