Prayer

So Monday night I decided I wanted to stat a prayer journal. And I told the hubs he should start one too. So Tuesday on my way to Bible study I stopped at target and bought some cute little notebooks, I got to Bible study and this week was on prayer. I figure that's God's way of telling me, yes your prayer life needs help and a prayer journal sounds like a great way to start. It was good to hear about how other people pray and other people's struggles with prayer. It helps to know that I'm not the only one who hates praying out loud, I'm not the only one who has a hard time focusing during prayer and I'm not the only one who struggles with what I can and can't or should and shouldn't pray for.

Last night I took the time to write out a few praises and a handful of requests, gather my thoughts and then prayed. It was a lot more focused using the journal, I didn't start thinking about today or what had happened earlier yesterday or anything. it definitely helped.

Today I'm trying to breath and not let annoying things at work distract me from being nice and patient. Then after work I need to get my mom a birthday gift and maybe a new outfit to wear to dinner tomorrow night for her birthday.

I am still reading through the materials to take some certification tests to be able to teach preschool again. So I hope that is what I am supposed to be doing right now because I feel like I have no direction in life at the moment. I'm just kind of wandering around hoping that God's plan will fall out of the sky for me.
