Training vs Trying which one is right for Christians?

I am not sure I ever consciously thought I am not good at this Christian thing I am just going to walk away.  But I did walk away.  I think because of several things, one is not knowing that this is a process and if I keep doing this in my strength I will not be able to do it.  But if I train with the Holy Spirit all things are possible.    Think about it when you are trying something new how much easier is it with a guide, a mentor, a helper, a comforter?   That is what the Holy Spirit is for us.  He comes alongside us and shows so much.

Improve Your Year by Understanding Your Assignments.

Written 1-23-18 January with its snow and chill is almost over and I wanted to just share something that has been very thought-provoking for me.  One of the things my hubby, awesome man that he is, got me was a three pack of Mandisa CDs for Christmas.   I could not wait for everyone to get out of the house and have a private praise/dance party.  When it happened I had a blast and thought to myself why did I ever stop doing this?   So I decided that one of my goals is to have myself a praise party at least 2 times a month.  I am not one to have my goals (I do goals not resolutions) ready on January...
