blogging break

i'm going to be taking a little blogging break probably until after june 1st. there is just a lot going on with the house and moving and i don't have enough energy or brain power to do everything. and as much as i love blogging, it's just something that has to go for a little bit. 

i wanted to share a devotional i got this morning. it really made me stop and think about how i act in my life and my attitude. 

What If…By Roy Lessin

What if we gave thanks in everything …would not our spirits be free of ungratefulness?
What if we rejoiced evermore…would not the sounds of grumbling and complaining be silenced?
What if we count it all joy…would we not have more pleasant dispositions?
What if we drank of the fullness of His Spirit…would not our cups run over?
What if we sought first His kingdom and His righteousness…would we not have changes in our priorities?
What if we cast all our cares upon Him…would we not be free of our burdens?
What if everything was by prayer…would we not be released from our anxieties?
What if we let the Lord fight our battles…would we not walk in victory?
What if we let not our hearts be troubled…would we not live free of fear?
What if we delighted ourselves in the Lord…would not our hearts be satisfied?
What if we let Christ be our life…would we not be fulfilled and completed?
What if our minds were stayed upon Him and our hearts trusted Him fully…would we not walk in the peace that passes understanding?
What if we took His yoke upon us…would we not find His rest?
What if we said “yes” to what He is asking of us in this moment…would we not know the joys of pleasing Him?
What if we did it now?
Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 NLT

 I've definitely not been very full of His spirit or grateful lately. I've let the not so great things going on take over. And I can't do that, because even though things aren't going how *I* want them to doesn't give me the right to grumble and complain all the time. So I'm going to try and work on being more thankful and happier and letting God fill my spirit and cup with his joy despite what I see as setbacks. Hopefully I will see you after June 1st and I will have a new house to tell you all about. But, either way I WILL be Joyful.
