Sharing My Life
Galatians 6:14 "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."
As a writer, I tend to share my life's stories with my friends and family. I am an open book, you might say! However, I felt God telling me to be careful with what I say and how I say it. Of course I can share my joys, my accomplishments, and my family's accomplishments. Nothing wrong with being happy for someone else or even in what God has done through me. At the same time, though, I don't need to constantly tell the world my husband is great, my kids are great, and my life is great. Some people have expressed jealousy toward me and don't want to speak to me anymore. How can I lead these people to Christ if I have driven them away by my bragging? I have to think about what other people are experiencing. Not everyone has a good marriage or wonderful kids or a nice home. I can credit my blessings to God, but in a more humble way. I don't need to shout out my "perfect" life all the time. I have never claimed to have a perfect life, but the way I express my joys and blessings can give that impression. So, from now on, I will humble myself and only boast in Christ.

“We have not because we ask(pray) not”
The goals and dreams in your heart come from God. You may not be ready, but don’t quit praying. God will get you ready. Your dreams and goals will come. Never give up. He put them there for a reason. Believe
