starting 2009 with purpose

5 January 2009

Before I get into 2009 let me just tell you this. I am so determined to get my spirit my soul my life where it ought to be. I was at church towards the end of 2008 and there was a guest speaker. Sorry forgotten his name. He gave a good service. He did sly alter call. I will say sly because he did say put your hands up where you are and I will pray for you. Then came the come to alter bla bla bla. Not meaning to sound blaze' but I am trying to get this all out so I can read my book. You willl understand as you read on.

I can over analyse or over think. That may come from the fact that I am not one for surprises. Unless of course I am found pregnant with twin girls in view of the fact I have contraception. Anyway so I dutifully and willingly went to the alter and prayed and was prayed upon. We did a joint prayer committing ourselves to getting to know Jesus thus making that promise to God. I will declare now. Jesus is my saviour!!!

I was not sure when to leave the alter but took my guess when I felt like the person next to me had gone. I think it is the attention on me that makes my heart skip a beat no less. But why when through all my nerves I used to sing and recite poetry publicly. I need to loosen up. Not too much.

Anyway so I bought a few books back in October 2008. One of those books is Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. It says it is a 40 day spiritual journey that will give you an understanding of why you are on earth and God's amazing plan for you. I like the sound of that. So today is day 1. I am going to try blog my thoughts here as I read. I might not be able to do daily blogs but I will do weekly.

Have you read this book. What do you think of it. Join on my journey in faith and understanding. Let me know more about yours.

Blessings for 2009
