Feedback Friday

This is Feedback Friday where it is your turn to tell me whats going on. How is God working in your life?

As of right now I only have an audience of two, but hopefully that will change shortly as I practice becoming more consistent.

I am a big fan of aliteration hence the themes for each day. If Feedback Friday doesn't pan out the way that I had hoped I will work on thinking up a new word for this day, but right now I will hold out hope.

So what's new with you?

THOTful Thursday

THOTful Thursday is inspired by a childhood tradition of reading Our Daily Bread devotionals. My parents would read and when they got to the end to read the bolded thought at the bottom, they always said "Thot, T-H-O-T without the T-H-O-T." I thought nothing of it, but carried on the tradition. It wasn't until recently my parents explained why they said that. When the devotionals were originally printed it said THOT at the bottom along with the thought for the day. Then soon after the THOT was dropped from the devotions, therefore explaining the phrase my parents said without fail as they read each devotion. It's kind of funny looking back, and when I happen to read the THOT for the day, I sometimes mumble that phrase just because.

Well, what better place to start than Our Daily Bread for today's THOT, T-H-O-T without the
T-H-O-T. You can find the Our Daily Bread devotionals online at Todays devotional is entitled Emergency Kit and the THOT for the day is God provides the armour, but we must put it on. Wow, what a true and profound statement. God gives us many resources and protective barriers from the enemy, but he also gives us the choice to use them. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation are ours for the taking. God gives us his plan through His Word and through prayer. Help us to think clearly, especially in times of need and to come prepared for the fight we are in against principalities and powers.

Wow Wednesday!

Wow, it has been awhile. I decided to stop blogging this year because I started to notice a trend. All I blogged about was time and how I didn't have any. I took a break but am back. My original intent for this blog was to be a ministering tool about a topic near and dear to my heart, purity. I have witnessed over the years a lack of training and a more accepting view of impure lifestyles.

I have declared my desire to be pure and to "be found." I have struggled with the latter issue in the last few years. I don't want to trust God for my future mate even though that is what He wants of me.

Long story short, I have changed and been influenced over the year in different areas and would like to share them in a carefree, thematic way. KLOVE has been one of my biggest inspirations this year so the format of the blog will be my direct influence. My main passion is purity and a godly sense of beauty which will most likely be evidenced in posts to come, but the new format will look something like this:
MAD (Make a Difference) Monday
Tuesday Thankfuls
WOW, God Wednesdays
THOTful Thursdays
Feedback Friday

I want to challenge myself to post everyday for the next month. For me, this is a tall order. I give up way too quickly. I hope to complete this well and grow closer to my beloved.
