This Week

Okay so I want us to do something new...one of the main ideas of this blog was to help us with our accountability and to help us grow in all aspects of our lives. So I want us to all ask questions and others opinions(you don't have to just comment...you can do posts of your own even if they are short or 5 pages long...please feel free to post!)...if you don't understand something then ask! or if you just want to know if anyone else struggles with something...ask!!!! So this week I want to ask "what is your hard thing this week?" what do you want to overcome this week?
remember that no one is going to judge you on your questions or answers to questions!!!
This week, my hard thing is working as hard at home as I do at work...this is an area I daily struggle with...so what is your do hard thing just for this week???

This is a very good idea. This week, my 'hard thing' is being diligent with school. My weeks until summer break are dwindling down and I'm finding it harder and harder to stay concentrated on school. I'll be praying for your week, Chelsey...."For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

For me, to stop procrastinating. I've got a bunch of school to do, and with the amount of work hours I'm putting in, it's easy to come home and just want to relax for the rest of the day.

my hard thing is being more patient with my siblings. Its really hard doing school in a house with 7 other kids and i dont do too well with being patient so i really need to work on that. I also need to work on being diligent with school too. Sometimes I just get fed up with all the noise and stuff and want to just take a break which turns out to be a really long break and then i have to do stuff at night and then i dont get enough sleep. So have a lot of stuff to work on but this week i will try to focus on patience!

I understand what both of you are struggling with. I'll be praying for you two, also, this week!

Mark said...

Should any of this be put in the Prayer Requests?

Melly Rose said...

I think that's a great idea, Mark. Then when we each time we go on the blog we'll be reminded to pray for each other.
My hard thing is to work diligently in those little things like chores that don't take much time, but because I don't want to do them, I put them off.

Melly Rose said...

I also think that we should be accountable with each other and update how we are growing in the areas we want to work on. Staying accountable would motivate me to pursue growth harder.
What do you all think?

Mark said...

Absolutely, Melly Rose. I think that at the end of this week, everyone can tell everyone else how their week went, and if they were able to do their "hard thing".

Emily E. said...

That sounds good to me!

For me, this next week and a half I have so many hard things to do with CP finals coming up and several quizzes to take before then, and still keeping up with my other responsibilities that I think the two hardest things for me would be 1-to stay focused on what I need to at the moment and not worry about all the other things that need to get done or don't need to get done, and 2-to constantly remind myself to put my trust fully in God and lean on him for my strength and not myself. I've realized that the last couple of days I've been leaning on my own strength and have consequently been extremely worried. If this could be put in the prayer requests that I would trust in God and that I would also do well in my final exams, that'd be great.

Doing hard things for me is trusting God. Right now there are several things that I am trying to organize and do that are not working out very well right now. My tendency in these kind of situations is just to try harder, and to rely on my own strength. I can approach sin this way as well.
These next two weeks, my parents are leaving the country (for Europe), leaving me in charge. My tendency would be to worry about this and be anxious, so pray for me.

Melly Rose said...

I'll be praying for you, Charlie. And also for your siblings.

Emily E. said...

Oh, Charlie I will be praying for you. I know your hands will be full, but the Lord will be with you as you care and watch over your family!
