Life is a fascinating roller coaster ride. It is full of ups and downs, excitement and fear, laughter, tears, joy and pleasure. If we continue to ride that same roller coaster over and over and over again we eventually grow weary of it. It is not as exciting or pleasurable as it us to be.... we don't fear it anymore and have become discontent so begin to search for a new ride. Thus begins our journey in search for something new, more exciting. To go somewhere or do something so we don't feel so bored or sad. We become stale and like unmoving water are stagnant.... a sign of being out of sync with God. Maybe we have put something before our relationship with God. All the wonders and riches of this world can suffocate what the Lord may be trying to show us. This morning why not start fresh by renewing our relationship with Him! He is waiting and ready to accept us, wanting to lavish His gracious love and gifts upon us. As Christians our purpose in life is to put Him first and foremost in our heart, soul and mind. To yearn for more of Him..... to serve Him....to wait, always leaving room for Him to work in our life. This should show through our thoughts and actions. There have been many ups and downs lately in my life.... it has been a tough year. Am I putting Him first, leaving room and inviting Him to do what He wishes with my life? I found myself asking these questions. Take no thought for your life Matthew 6:25 & Luke 12:22. Christ shouldn't have to compete with the world for my time. I need to be faithful and be secure in knowing He will care for me no matter what. Even when I become discontent with my circumstances and my soul grows weary, He is my refuge and will strengthen me so I may leave the enticements of this world and turn my eyes upon Christ. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Psalm 119:8 Oh what a privilege he has chosen me to walk with Him. What a gift to know without a doubt I am His....forever.

Fabrics lined on the shelf just waiting to become a dress or top. I have a little addiction to fabric ;)
I hope you have a wonderful week full of blessings. Remember to put God first each morning in your life. Remember He loves you dearly and when all else fails He doesn't.
