Blog Title

I just changed my blog title from "Journal Keeping" to "A Heart Assessment." It just seems to better state my purpose. I must confess that I was tempted to steal a title from a blogger I've come to love. It is Surviving Motherhood or Irritable Mother. I was drawn to her just because of her title.
Titles are funny though because it's just a title.
What I do in this space though is not really keeping a journal as much as it evaluating where I am. What are my motives? This is all a Heart Assessment. So, I don't know if I messed anything up by making that change, but I just had to do it.

Today, I had to question where my heart was. The first free moment that I had from the kiddos (meaning they were quiet in front of the T.V), I wanted to kill time doing stupid stuff instead of fill my time with reading the Word. It wasn't the first thing I did this morning and I try to keep a rule in my head to "get in the Word before the world!" That means for me to not even turn my computer on until that time has been spent with the Lord.

So, after reading in 1 Corinthians I can face the day because I have something new from God's Word to chew on! Today I am thinking about the transformation that will happen in our bodies when "Death is swallowed up in victory."

1 Corinthians 15:58 "So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless."

I have read through most of your blog prompted by the encouraging of your precious mom. You are very good at putting words to print. I pray I can only begin to do the same.

Hey Rachel,

It was lovely to get a visit from you today on my blog. So I thought I'd come visit you and I loved it.

I hope we will continue to drop in on each other from time to time. I know what you mean about that thing of time with God first then the world. I need to remind myself of that often!
Take care

I like your new title! It's great! Thanks for the reminder to open my Bible before I open my computer! Ouch! I've been wrestling with that one a lot lately!
Hope you are well!
