A New Beginning

I know, I know, I've said it before "I'm going to be better about blogging".
But, this time I feel it's all about discipline, bringing glory to God and encouraging the family of God.
I had been thinking along the lines of the later, but then my pastor encouraged it on Sunday, and then to top it off my husband gave me a shove in the right direction.
Ladies, marry a man who encourages the best in you, especially the things you may not think are your best.
When I was a kid I used to want to be an author. I thought I might have a bit of a knack for writing, but never pursued it.
My husband told me last night that I should do this. He then told me that my writing was one thing that attracted him to me. Go figure.
God has also been giving me grace in the area of disciplines of late.
He's been helping me to wake up earlier to spend time with Him before I begin my day at work.
He now giving me grace in working on my eating habits and exercise.
And now it's time to get back to blogging.

I used to be consist, back when it was the thing to use Xanga.
I know I can do it, despite business. It's all about priorities. Using my time wisely and in a way that will bring glory to Himself.

So here is the start of something new.
I hope to encourage with insights from the Lord through things He's showing me and teaching me.
I'm sure I'll mention my jewelery, coffee and other things that I obsess over :).
My prayer is that I may be a blessing, encouragement, and that God may get the glory through His workings in our lives.

"Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen." 1 Timothy 1:17

Words, it's all in how we use them. May you continue to use them to glorify Him and encourage those around you.
(and you know, write about coffee and beads too...seeing as it is part of how God made you!)

Great, Kim! This was really encouraging to read. I hope that my blog is also encouraging to those who read it.
