you can't give away what you don't have...

i say it alot
i believe it

this morning i got nuthin to give away save for a neediness.....so coming to Him and praying as you grow up......you go to Him with all your needs and wants.

so i read 1 Samuel 13 and 2 Corinthians 12

Saul...oh Saul vs 9-13 tells of him getting tired of waiting for Samuel and doing what he thought was right, what he did sounded good and right but he was told to wait for Samuel. I don't know about you guys but i can get so tired of waiting. i can start convincing myself of things that God doesn't want from me when He's told me to wait. He put your parents over you for a reason, to look out for you, for your own good.......remember to wait, no matter how hard the waiting is. i hope you will be able to discern when you get older when He says 'wait'.....i pray for you all of a morning...Emma, Gabe, Millie, Nehemiah and this new one not yet born....that your relationships w/God through Christ be full of wonder and risk and joy.

and you parents...lynz and paul, dara and juno, jared and allison...i read this quote yesterday and i pray it stirs you up just as it stirred me....
Eric Haynes ...Is my primary goal as a parent focused on helping my kids discover a deep, personal relationship with Christ, or just controlling behaviors?

love you all Gigi
