Weird

Weird is the next book on my list. I seriously love Craig Groeschel’s books! He has a way of grabbing your attention just like Kyle Idleman does in his books. I know, I know. I’ve compared Groeschel to Idleman already but I can’t help it. lol. Anyway, here is a synopsis of the book:

“Normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are, at best, strained and, in most cases, just surviving. Even though we live in one of the most prosperous places on earth, normal is still living paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead. In our oversexed world, lust, premarital sex, guilt, and shame are far more common than purity, virginity, and a healthy married sex life. And when it comes to God, the majority believe in him, but the teachings of scripture rarely make it into their everyday lives.Simply put, normal isn’t working. Groeschel’s WEIRD views will help you break free from the norm to lead a radically abnormal (and endlessly more fulfilling) life.”

I want to be “weird!” (alright, I already AM weird in a lot of ways, haha but I definitely want to have these “weird views!”)


On another note: Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! How crazy fast has this year gone by? 2017 is almost gone.  I turn 35 in 2018. 35! What is even happening? Time is flying by!

I need to start thinking of goals I want to accomplish in this next year. Maybe I’ll make that a blog post for another time. 🙂

 

Verse of the day:

“Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14

Merry Christmas you guys! And Happy New Year!

Our Battles…..

 

I know it can be frustrating when life seems to hand us trial after trial. Just when we come through one trial, another one seems to be on its tail.  But if we remain faithful to God, if we give all our cares to Him, He WILL take care of us! We only need to “be still.” Being still can be hard, I know. But just give it to God. Nothing is impossible for Him. 🙂
