Do you ever sit and ask your self the following question: "What is it that the Lord is asking of me or what is it that he is wanting me to do?"
I am sure I am not the only person that asks themselves this same question. I often find myself wondering just what it is that he has planned for my life or what it is that I am to be doing for him. Well last tonight the following verses hit me and hit my heart hard.
Jesus answered, " The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." John 6:29
I love this! We satisfy God when we believe, not by what we do, but by truly believing in Jesus. Does this just not make your heart feel so joyful.
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never hunger, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35
Yes we need bread physically to fuel our bodies but it is the Lord our true bread and water that fills our souls and spirits. We need him spiritually to truly be satisfied and to fill full.
Following him and truly believing in him is the Only way. Our God is so awesome that he sent us his Son to fill us up Spiritually!
So I find myself a little more at ease with the above question.....not that I still don't ask myself that question, But I can honestly say now that with Time God will show me just what it is that I am to be doing for him. For now I will continue to believe and put all my hope in Jesus and allow God to direct my path of life!

Beauty & Glory
So the other night (Tuesday night..I am a little behind) was the summer session of women's bible study at church, the theme is "Beautiful You!". It was a great lesson and very uplifting. It was just what was needed after a long stressful day......to go and let it all go to the Lord and be lifted up!
It is amazing how God leads us to things, places or events to be able to communicate to us or get through to us. Like that night I believe God was giving me more signs, for example on the online bible study I am doing the memory verse for the week is: " So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31 and on Tuesday night we spoke about things for the glory of God and God's glory. I was so awesome how the two groups tied together for me and it gave me a moment of "Wow God is speaking to me". So it made me realize no matter what is happening in my life or around me, I must continue to be living my life in a way that glorifies God, I want to be doing things that do it all for the glory of God.
The other thing we spoke about Tuesday night was beauty......God's Beauty. It is funny how we (or I should say I) am always wondering if I am pretty enough, do I look beautiful.....but I realized I don't need to sit and worry over these things, I am Beautiful.....I am one of God's Creations and he thinks I am beautiful. We are all unique & God created us all differently but we are his creations and his creations are Beautiful!!!
So I am going to live my life for God, I am going to do it all in glory, righteousness, Grace and Love! And I am also going to remember and remind others that we are Beautiful ~ We are his!!
So I will end it with one of the Bible study verses from Tuesday night:
"Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a women who fears the Lord, she shall be praised." ~ Proverbs 31:30
