Living a Focused Life

Living a Focused Life

(Source: Printable Planner Page)

I read my Bible just about every day of the week and ask for His direction each morning. Before getting out of bed, I thank and praise Him for His goodness.

I do it because I need a relationship with Him to live the life He has for me. I do it because I’ve seen who I am without Him, but even with this I am cautious. I’m cautious not to let this daily ritual become just something I do out of habit.

I don’t want to get so caught up in the habits of my walk with Christ that I miss the relationship.

Do you know that people can read the Bible daily, say a daily prayer, go to church every Sunday and still miss God?

I don’t want to miss God by becoming a believer who does things habitually. I want my relationship with Father God to be fresh everyday.

Every time I talk to Him I want it to be new and unrehearsed.

Every time I hear his voice whisper my name I want my heart to swell with excitement and a joyful desire to respond to His call.

In want to fall in love with Him all over again every single day.

I want Him to know how much I love hearing about the plans He has for my life.

To keep my relationship with Him fresh, it has to be intentional and cultivated.

How Daily Planning Can Make You Better Wife and Mother

Why Use a Daily Planner

I’ve been a planner ever since I became a stay at home wife and mom back in 2008. My Daily Planner has changed over the years as my family dynamic has changed, but the purpose of it has always been the same. The goal of my planner is to get everyone in our home on the same page.

My planner not just for me, but for my husband and kids as well. Having a central location where everyone can see the plans for the day helps me be a better mother and wife. Having my planner out in the open keeps me from having to repeat information over and over again. Repeating myself is one of my anger triggers. Anger triggers are those things that make you frustrated and can possibly lead to communicating with your family in anger. I will write more about identifying anger triggers and how to master them, but for now, I’ll share how I master this trigger using my Daily Planner.

Top 12 Prayers to Pray for Your Children

Top 12 Prayers to Pray for Your Children

You can click on the following link to print Top 12 prayers to pray for children.

Below are 12 prayers to pray for your children this year.  If you take one point a month to pray over your them within a year you will have prayed this entire list.

 1. Pray that they will know Christ as Savior early in life.

-Psalm 63:1 O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

-2 Timothy 3:15 … and how form infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

2. Pray that they will have a hatred for sin.

-Psalm 97:10 Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for He guards the lives of His faithful ones and delivers then from the hand of the wicked.

3. That they will be caught when guilty.

-Psalm 119:71 It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn from your decrees.

4. That they will be protected from the evil one in each area of their lives: spiritual, physical, emotional, social.

– Luke 2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

-John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.

 5. That they will have a responsible attitude in all their interpersonal relationships.

-Daniel 6:3 Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.

6. That they will respect those in authority over them.

-Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.  The authorities that exist have been established by God.

 7. That they will desire the right kind of friends and be protected from the wrong friends.

-Proverbs 1:10-11 My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them.  If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for someone’s blood, let’s waylay some harmless soul…”

 8.That they will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one.

-1 Corinthians 6:14-17 By His power God raised the Lord form the dead, and He will raise us also.  Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ Himself?  Shall I then take members of Chris and unite them with a prostitute?  Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body?  For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”  But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in Spirit.

 9. That they, as well as those they marry, will be kept pure until marriage.

– 1 Corinthians 6:18-19 Flee from sexual immorality.  All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.  Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body.

 10. That they will learn to totally submit to God and actively resist Satan in all circumstances.

-James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, To God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 11. That they will be single-hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ.

-Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living scarfice, holy, and pleasing to the Lord- this is your spiritual act of worship.  Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will.

12. That they will be hedged in so they cannot find their way to wrong people or wrong places and that the wrong people cannot find their way to them.

– Hosea 2:6 Therefore I will block her path with thorn bushes; I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way.
