january, the month that needs a bit of tweaking!


december is a month filled with hope, endless possibilities and good will towards others ... 

then january arrives ... 

reality looks bleak, life seems routine and if you live in middle canada - the weather is bitterly cold!  that is when we need to walk by faith, not by sight ... and ignore any discontent or ikkiness inside us and offer to God the sacrifice of praise ... 

it is not always easy to be grateful (even when we should be) or to give Jesus praise (even tho' HE is worthy) ... on those days the fragrance of a thankful word may be all that much sweeter to a God who is always attentive to us ... offer to Him the sacrifice of praise ...  this is what proclaims our allgiance to the only ONE worthy of that praise ...

There's that glass half full that I love! LOL!
Isn't it just wonderful what praising the Lord returns back to us?

Ignore the ikkiness. That's it. We all need to ignore the ikkiness. For by concentrating on the good, much good will come!
(Philippians 4:8).

Hi Saija, Love the content of your post...it is filled with mental 'meat' =).....my devotions in Peter brought out the point of discipling my thinking....doesn't that dovetail with your thoughts very much. I like it...and prayed to be aware of doing that or even of not. January is bleak alright. Pretty beautiful though...at times and why not? Look who created it...=) You can tell I don't have to drive in it for sure! Yesterday was a day of medical tests for me and the Lord helped me through it all....Praise Him, Praise HIm, tell of his excellent glory! R is doing up the breakfast dishes...what a great guy! (drives in snow too ) =) Hope your day is a good one. And your husband has a good day also. *sending you a hug* k.
