NO EXCUSES. Boss in the middle. Day 8 prayer challenge.

IMG_0448For those of you keeping score, yes, I missed day 7.  I certainly talked to God during the day, it just wasn’t the first thing in the morning.  I’m not going to beat myself up and I’m not going to give any excuses.  I’m back at it today, which is the most important part of failing.  Getting back to it.  I have a lot of reasons I could use to justify missing my time with God, but basically, I need to plan better.  I need to start incorporating extra time into my mornings.  It all starts the night before.

Anyway, today’s prayer time was good.  It was nice and quiet.  The only thing I have to note during my silent time today, is that I feel God’s presence and I believe He will be with me.

I truly have a sense of calm that has been giving me courage in situations where I normally would have fear and anxiety.  It’s like I am constantly living in the reality of God’s power.  A rediscovered persepective.

The issues of this world are so small when compared to the size of God.

It’s an awesome feeling.  I’ll check back in tonight.

Also, I’m getting a lot of cool supporting words of encouragement from some of you, so thank you!

Start your own prayer challenge and let me know how it goes in the comment section of any of my posts.

For some reason, there are people that don’t like me and I believe it is because I am a Christian. Along with being a Christian comes certain stereotypes. Among them are we all hate gay people, we’re hypocrites and we believe in a fairy tales. We are irrational and judgmental. These are just a few off the top of my head and they are far from the truth.
When people believe stereotypes about a certain group or culture, it dictates their interactions with that group. This isn’t fair, but that’s life. So what do we do?

Things I need to tell myself.

img_0352There are things I’ve learned about myself which can only be described as character defects.  Flaws that at times, can make my life more painful than necessary.  As a result, I have made up a lot of sayings, quips, analogies and acronyms to remember who I am and my purpose.  I’ll share some of these things with you.
