When you let God in your life, the home you started to build will become a palace of wonderful love through Jesus Christ.
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
Life is precious and short. How can we live each day to the fullest to maximize our impact on the world and glorify God? We start on our knees in prayer and from there God will walk you step-by-step through your day. With each step you take you have a choice to listen to Gods direction or take your own directional step. He gave us free will to follow him or to follow nothing. If you choose your way that is exactly what you will have; nothing. Even the richest of men and women have nothing without the Lord because they feel empty inside.
Proverbs 28:6 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse.
What will you do with your day today? Will you live for God or live for you? Write down the things you want to do today with honesty and then pray about them all. God will show you what you need to do.

Today, I awoke with the sense of more changes are coming. I was reading in Jeremiah about the battle of Babylon and the destruction of the city because of their sin. God’s wrath has been raised and he says its time to change their ways. The wicked will be destroyed and the city walls will be burned down; no man will be left standing in the city for his sin has run his life into the grave.
Change is not always good but it can be great. God takes the bad of the changes in our lives and uses them for the greater good. That is why we are to thank him for all things good and bad, tears and joy.
The best thing about change is that you rarely know when it is coming. I may feel like more change is coming but I do not know exactly what it is. I have been working hard to balance my life and my budget but boy oh boy do I get the hiccups. What do you do when you know it’s time for a change?
When I need an environment change but can’t always leave town I clean and declutter which is great when your mad or sad too. You really clean by moving furniture into new spots of the rooms if possible so that when you go to sit or lay down you get a whole new perspective as you enjoy the cleanliness and newness of your hard work. Try it!
