Lately I've been reading "The Shack" and really have started to see things in a way I haven't seen them before. I know the writer isn't God himself, but I've still learned a lot more about my Creator and my relationship with Him. Because of this book I'm going to dig deeper into God, rely on Him for everything, kill my independent spirit and replace with one living on relationships- especially with my Savior. Making progress isn't always a forward motion, sometimes you have to turn back to get results. I know I can't do any of this alone so I'll need to first work on embracing the TEAM effort and focus on living life wit the knowledge that I'm an insanely loved child of God.

This week I'm really trying to apply Matthew 6:33 in my life. God calls us to seek first the kingdom of heaven. He doesn't say second, third, when you have time, or later in life. He specificall says seek, in the present tense so that we can know that God and His kingdom should continually come first in our lives. This verse really hits home because I often find myself putting other things before the Most High Creator and by doing this I spend more time with the products of the Creator rather than the Creates Himself. This week and for the rest of my life i pray that God will give me the strength and longing to "walk out" Matthew 6:33.
