I just signed up for an online Bible Study through Proverbs 31, and I am so excited about it! I have always felt that I had a food addiction, or at least an extreme affinity for food...and I have had the the book, Made to Crave on my Kindle for a long time, and even borrowed the paperback before that from a friend...but honestly...I don't think I wanted to face what God wanted me to learn from it, so I have put off reading it. So...I am going to try and start reading it...and hopefully turn my heart in the direction that God has for me...to crave Him...instead of the things of this earth.
There is even an opportunity for a weekly blog hop, so I am going to try and link up to that each week! We'll see how I do!
The first topic was to tell about your favorite scripture...and I have so many, but I wanted to share again about the scripture that my blog is based upon. When I started this blog in 2005, and had only one sweet child, I never dreamed that God would eventually bless us with two more children...just no idea! We had tried and tried to have more babies, and miscarried a baby in October 2004. By 2006, I had given up on having more, and had that long conversation with God about acceptance...and contentment. In 2008 I delivered our sweet boy, Asher, and then in 2011 our little Claire was born...God did immeasurably more than I could have asked for or imagined...and I am so thankful...that is why Ephesians 3:20-21 is such a special passage to me!
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen!" Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
