Faithful Friday

Happy Friday ya'll!!

Paul wrote, "Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus." Phil 3:13 - 14

The thought for the day in my devotion is "If we ask and listen, God will lead us to what is most important for us" Laurie Juliana

It seems to be the theme for me this week. Contentment with what I have, not looking behind, looking to God for what is important to Him and His will for me.

Is it His will for me to become pregnant? No. Although since I am medically altered, I made that choice many years ago....lol No looking back.

Is it possibly His will to adopt again?... well since adoption IS His will...maybe so. Have to get the rest of the family on board with me. ;o) God can take care of that one. Pressing Forward.

Now it's time to ask and listen. Listen.... Listen...hhhmmm for some reason I think this is my biggest hurdle. Anyone else?

So today on Faithful Friday... I am shutting up and listening. I am going to allow God to speak to me.

Tonight we will have dinner with our couples group. It's been a while. I will ask for their prayers for my heart's desire for a baby. Either to give me peace about not moving forward or to work in D's heart. ;o)

Tomorrow is RACE DAY!!! The real thing baby. oh my goodness! Gives me butterflies just thinking about it. I found stuff for my costume and have arranged to meet my partner ...my "wingman" at 7am. UGH I am so not a morning person so running that early will be a challenge in and of itself...lol It's supposed to be cloudy and 80 degrees... phew, can you say sweaty? Good thing when I post pics there won't be smell-o-vision.

The boys are WAY excited for Halloween. E-man is going to be a race car driver and N is going to be Bumblebee from Transformers. We are going to the church for the Fall Festival. Can't wait to show you pictures.

My boys were having a bit of a spot this morning remembering to enjoy what they had...lol E's school is having a party and N is way jealous. It was tough to explain the differences to them, while making each sound good...but not too good ...to the other. ;o)

So, I am off to listen. I pray you all have a blessed Friday and glorious weekend, hope it's Better than Good!

Praying for you and your precious family dear sister. I'm sure the race will be awesome!

Thanks for sharing with us and you know in that version of the Scripture you shared the words, "straining forward" just leaped out at me.

Love you much. Have a blessed weekend in the LORD.
