My list of priorities:
- Communion with God – there is such comfort in knowing that
God is a loving caring God. That he hears the cry of our heart, as well
as the longing to be with Him. To feel His touch and hear His voice. I
have discovered a love relationship with Him . That scripture that says
"O taste and see that the Lord He is good" has such a wealth of meaning.
It took me awhile to get there but He has definitely become the Lover of
- Bible reading and Study – I love the word of God, it
satisfies my hunger and quenches my thirsty soul. It strengthens me, as
well as it sets me on the right path. Through the word I have been
comforted, soothed, loved, rebuked, and chastised. The Lord always knows
what I need.
- My husband – when I married my husband, we had made plans for
him to retire early and we were going to become full time missionaries.
Well things didn't work out that way. We are still missionaries, it’s
just not the way we thought it would be. He is the one who is able to go
on mission trips now. I get behind him and support him the best I know
how. I see to his needs, and do my best to see that he is happy.
- My Children - my miracles, they are the unexpected blessing
that God has given me.They have been a joy to my life, even though there
have been times when I have suffered much grief. It is hard to find the
words to say how much my kids mean to me.
- Myself – The following is pretty much how I take care of myself.
Although I like to watch TV every once in awhile. I love to watch CSI,
and Stargate SGI, and Atlantis. I like to watch movies mostly. Although
it’s hard to find good ones that don't embarrass me, and I have had to
turn them off.
- The Church – for so long church was a major priority. Things have
changed a lot though. I felt rather at a loss when we moved to an new
community as well as a new church. The ministry that I did at my old
church came to a screeching halt when we moved to a new church. It’s not
that I don't want to minister, it’s that there hasn't been opportunity.
But it has caused me to reach out more to new avenues.
- Playing around on my computer. (I think of my computer as a place of
ministry, as well as entertainment. I have made some wonderful friends
on the Internet. Sharon is one of them. In a world where everyone is so
busy, I have found that there are more people than you can imagine with
time on their hands. Someone said something to me the other day that
made a lot of sense. There are two kinds of people on the Internet.
There is the hunter, and the hunted. The hunter has a purpose they
"pursue" and the hunted are "pursued." Most of the time, the hunted
don't even know that they are being pursued. The pursued are caught
mostly when they are not on their guard or in moments of weakness. I'm a
hunter my purpose is to pursue, but I'm not out there to harm, I want to
be able to lift up and encourage the hurting, brokenhearted, lost souls.
It is my desire, to be a light in the midst of a world of darkness.
That's me, my heart pours out to those who are in need of encouragement.
- Time with friends and family – I would say the same thing as I said
about the computer. I want the Lord to use me, even if they just need
someone to listen, I want to be a vessel for God to use me as He sees
In His Love
