Oh me… Oh my…

So after long hard thought… I’ve decided to stop doing my devotional blogs. It’s hard for me to keep them up with baby and all. And I really like to blog about my Lucy – and I’ve found that my readers like reading about her more.

Its too much for me to blog about both and keep it good. I’m going to start my own personal bible study, just for me. (I’ve been doing the devotional blogs for a while now.)

I don’t get a lot of response on my devotional blogs – so if you do like them and don’t want them to end – comment below. If not, expect lots more Lucy and random stuff that happens to me from day to day.

Another reason for this: I can put all of my blogs into a book. This will create for me, a journal. A journal in which I can give to my little Lucy when she gets older. Old enough to read of course (and enjoy).

So, if you like the devotionals, let me know. Otherwise, today’s will be the last one you read for a while. If not, start enjoying more of Lucy Bea… Lucy Bea and all her funniness.

Glory

From Ruth Meyer’s 31 Days of Praise:

Thank You that I can enjoy my strengths and gifts without pride or false modesty as I give You the credit for them, praising You rather than congratulating myself. What do I have, that I did not receive from You? All that I am and all that I have comes from You; it is all sustained by You… and I want it all to glorify You! Not to me, O Lord, not to me, but to Your name be the glory.

Pride is something we all deal with to some degree. Unless you are in the category of thinking low of yourself, which is also wrong. We should care about ourselves to an extent, but not be prideful. If you hate yourself, then you aren’t doing anyone any good. If you are so depressed you can’t think right, how on earth will you be able to show someone the joy of God?

Something that helps with this: Knowing it’s got nothing to do with you.

You can’t make yourself any better, or any worse. You are who you are, God created you that way.

The only way to make you better? Is to become more like Him. That is the only way.

Everything we have, comes from God. Give Him the Glory for all that He has done for you.
