"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7 (ESV)

So, recently I've been getting back on track with God and growing closer to him and stronger in him.

This path hasn't been so easy. The main thing God is leading me to charge is one of my fav past times...gossip! Ladies this is a BIG one for me! How I'm working on it is everything time I think something negetive about another person I pause and force myself to say one positive thing about that person. Sometimes thats WAAAAY easier said then done. But I'm doing it.

As, part of my spiritual growth I decided that I would dedicate part of my drive to spending time with him. For me this means that any time I'm driving to a place (school, home, the mall, no matter how far or close it is) I listen to either one of my Reliant K CDs or I put on my local Christian station. Since I'm all about balance on the way back I listen to whatever I feel like it. I've been doing this for a little over a month now and I have to say it has really made a difference. I'm not going to lie there have been days where I def didn't want to do it but in the end I always glad I gave God some of my day.

Today was a perfect example of this, I heard this song and I felt God saying "listen these are the words I want to say to you." After that I left really strongly that he wanted me to share it with my readers too. I really encorage all of you to take part of you day and give it up to God. If you don't believe in him then give up part of your day to meditate and just be still.

God really does have some awesome things planned for all of us. And I for one want to make sure I stay on his path so I get the best! I want more then 2nd best which is where only listening to our plans gets us.

I'm trying to live everyday being the happy, fun, kind, and godly woman God wants me to be. To me Kristin Chenoweth embodies all those things so whenever I'm feeling a little lost I just think how would Kristin respond. Now, I'm not saying God wants us all to be the same but personally, those characteristics are what feels right for me.

Sooo pretty and such an amazing woman!

I pray that all of you figure out and become the great woman God wants you to be!
