I'm a little behind in my Bible reading, so I read all of Philippians today. "Interestingly", I think there was a reason I got behind and read that entire book this morning.

First of all, I felt relieved to be reminded that God isn't finished with me yet. Not only is He not finished, He WON'T finish until His work in me is complete. WHEW!

Then the convicting began. :o) God through Paul reminded me that I am to do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, that I should look not only to my own interests but to the interests of others. Ouch....I have been pretty consumed with me lately. (I'm sorry Doug and the rest of you that I have blown off somewhat because of my selfishness.)

And then another awesome reminder: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." There is this thing in my life that I think I have given to God, but I obviously haven't because it keeps BUGGING me!!

God is SO good in gently reminding us of our shortcomings and giving us a way to overcome them! THANK YOU!!!!

It's been a long time since I blogged. It's not that I haven't wanted to, it's just that the things/topics I have felt like I needed to blog about I feel are things I SHOULD'T blog about. I think I don't want people to know what I am REALLY like. They probably wouldn't like me.

On that same note, I took a personality test this week. I should be glad that I had one, but I have been fretting about it ever since I took it! I didn't like what I turned out to be. For some reason, I only saw all the negative traits of that personality type. Oddly enough, a friend told me that's part of my personality type! :o)
