Wow.... is it already the second month of the year? Time is flying and I'm not even having fun yet!

Today I am on my feet. This is monumental. This cold has knocked me for a loop...
I get to keep grandkids today. YEA - they are keeping me entertained.

We have had way too much snow. It has been way too cold - in the subzero temps... we STILL have snow on the ground and we have had about 5 days of temps above freezing and even a few in the 60's! Okay - ENOUGH snow already! Enough cold! I declare it to be SPRING! (maybe if I declare it long enough it will obey!)

So... what is going on in your world?

I was thinking the other day (not sure when it was because I have spent the last 4 or 5 in and out of sleep and dreams .... ) about something I heard Joe McGee say on TV. He was saying that everyday he asks the Father to teach him and each member of his family to fear God. He said that when a person fears God they will walk in wisdom, riches and favor. Then he knows that if they are all fearing God everything will be okay and good.

I started to do that. In the middle of that in-between awake and asleep point I was meditating on it and had a revelation.... If we walk in wisdom, riches and favor when we fear God, does that mean that if we are NOT walking in wisdom, riches or favor then we need to check our "fear" focus.

We must be fearing something besides God - usually, we are fearing man, or lack, or pain, or all things not of God... we could be into blame, control, or manipulation, or false expectations... None of those will bring us wisdom, riches or favor.... only bondage, pain, guilt and condemnation.

Those were just some thoughts that I had rolling around in my mind. What are you fearing? I'd say make sure it is a healthy fear of an AWESOME God!

Hope you are having a wonderfully blessed day!
