A Manual For Living

Proverbs 1

God asks for very few things of me.  Listen, Obey, and Love.  So few, but so difficult.  You could assume that surrendering is so easy, but because of our nature we want to think that we have control over everything.  There's plenty that we are all struggling with and to simply put our hands up could mean different things; 1. You don't care or 2. You care so much about the Lord's plan that you know He will take care of it.  I struggle with this daily.  Because we are in the Lord, are we really IN HIM and ALL FOR HIM?  Being seasoned in Christ could be a super tough.  

Then I come to read Proverbs 1 (MSG).  
"There’s something here also for seasoned men and women,
    still a thing or two for the experienced to learn—
Fresh wisdom to probe and penetrate,
    the rhymes and reasons of wise men and women."
God has a message for everyone in a way that is unique to you.  He knows that you will understand what He's trying to say to you through different types of messages; whether it's through the people around you, what you read, the shows you watch....what matters most is what we are doing with that information and really listening to what He is saying.  Life can get so noisy...God does not yell.  So we have to really be in tune with how He speaks to us.  I struggle with this, but learning slowly how He is trying to deliver His messages.

I have no idea what will come with it, but I know it's a platform to display my work, blog, and social media.  So if anyone would like some pictures taken - let me know!

The wedding is less than 3 months away and it doesn't feel real.  It feels like there is so much more to get done, but it's really not.  Lots of little tiny details....blah blah blah.
