The women at church have been going through the book of Acts and it has been an amazing study for me...I am continually amazed at the Faith and Obedience of Paul...and am shocked always that God could take a terrible man with a history of severe wrongs (Saul becomes Paul) and He could transform this man into a beautiful man of God and use him mightily in His kingdom. I want to be transformed in such an incredible way just as Saul was and become a women who loves her Lord and Savior so much that she would stand on the steps of an angry mob and BOLDLY proclaim the name of Jesus even if it were to cost me my life!

We have also just started a new Tuesday morning study "Pleasing God" by Kay Smith and it is really is a very personal study and it points you right back to the word of God and how incredible it is to see that Jesus had such consuming fire and desire to do only what was pleasing to His father! Man...I want to burn like that..I want to not have to ever ask again is this right or wrong what I am about to do but to ask "Is this pleasing to me God" and how much simple my life would be if it were based on simply pleasing God in all that I do, say, act, respond!

Not only that...could you imagine if I were a women who had Faith and Obedience of Paul and a heart that's only desire was to PLEASE wouldn't that be a Women, Wife, Mother that would be worth following after and wouldn't she bring praise to her husband and set an example to her children that would spread generations!!!!

Thank you Jesus...for the continual reminder of how great Life in you is!!!

Here is a song I heard on the radio this morning!!! ( I have added it to my music box below click on it and you can listen to it)It is powerful...God has been really speaking to me about what people will say about me when I am no longer here on earth...and my desire is to be remembered as a women who love her God so much that it was evident in all things!

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me And I enjoy an accolade like the rest And you could take my picture and hang it in a gallery Of all the Who's Who's and So-and-So's That used to be the best at such and such It wouldn't matter muchI won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights We all need an "Atta boy" or "Atta girl"But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides The temporary trappings of this world I want to leave a legacy How will they remember me?Did I choose to love?Did I point to You enough?To make a mark on things I want to leave an offering A child of mercy and grace Who blessed Your name unapologetically And leave that kind of legacy Don't have to look too far or too long awhile To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy Not well-traveled, not well-read Not well-to-do, or well-bred Just want to hear instead Well done, good and faithful one I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
