It's amazing to me sometimes how life is, how God moves, how things change.  I just spent 10 days with my sister and her family and if felt more like 2 days. Sooo much activity, so many changes: baby's being born (WELCOME LEVI)  baby's growing up and shipping off to the Army, baby's learning that sometimes when you think you have it all together-you realize you have completely lost your focus. (That would be me :0) ) As I try to take a moment to focus in everything happening in our lives, I was stunned to hear the Lord say REMEMBER ME?? Not quite in question form. As a matter of fact, it was more in the form of a song, I think it's even called Remember Me by Mark Schultz: Remember Me, I remember you.  A gal sang that the Sunday I was at my sisters church, and I realized not that I had "forgotten" about the Lord, but I certainly was not devoting my time, my trust, my comfort or my concerns to Him. I was bundling them all up in a not so pretty package and laid it right on my heart so that all I could feel was chaos. Then in that one phrase "remember ME, cause I remember you", I was able to take a deep breath and cry a little at my shame of what I had allowed to overtake me, and cry a little more that I have such a loving Father that he literally told me to remember Him....REMEMBER ME....FOCUS ON ME.  So, I have had to resolve, and may need some reminding from time to time, that I will focus on God my Father, Jesus my Savior, and the Holy Spirit my Comforter, THREE IN ONE. I will focus on the joy that is my life, the joy that is my family, the joy that is my friends, the joy that is my learning more and more from the Lord each and every day and most of all the joy that is Jesus.
I hope you all have a joy filled day? no, a joy filled life!!

Thanks, Andresa, for taking the time to write this. When I go to church I often leave feeling like I am the only one who doesn't have it together. Does misery love company? Maybe...or maybe my pride is in the way. Or maybe I'm just ready to hear it. Whatever the case, I appreciate your candidness. It was the hook I needed to hang my thoughts on and helped me move closer to where I need to be. It reminded me of Toby Mac's Song, "Lose My Soul" so I went and added this link from youtube. - "I Don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul."
