Finally got around to watching Frozen with a sick little monkey today.
It's my new favorite... So many life lessons can be taken out of this
cute little movie!
1- Sometimes we keep our hearts hidden from others because we are afraid to let them in.
And sometimes that means we have a hard heart.
Nothing good comes from that. I encourage you to start letting others in...to see the real you.
We all have messy lives and all have messes in our hearts....so let's start being real with each other.
We've all got our own battles we are fighting....it's time we fight alongside each other instead of against each other!
Stop judging...start "melting" all the coldness away. It's only in soft hearts that new can grow.
It's only when we are transparent with others that relationships grow deeper and stronger.
2- This world needs more WARM HUGS. Start giving away more happy hugs!!
3-Some people are worth melting for! Find those people in your life that build you up, encourage you, and love you for who you are. If they only make you feel more depressed, negative, and feed your fears.....then it's time to find a new circle of friends.
4- LOVE is an open door....I can tell you...from alot of hard life experiences...that love is always the answer. Having a heart full of anger, bitterness, jealousy, and unforgiveness will be poison to your body and soul. Love is actually the most powerful force....use more of that...and watch beauty happen all around you. I can promise you that doors of oppurtunity in your life will begin to open like never before!
5- Go be an "Olaf" to someone today!.....seriously.....we all need a guy like that in our lives :)

 These are some short prayers to say and acknowledge God in the many aspects of who He is. I know I NEED to remember this IN THE SITUATION I'M FACING..not just afterwards!

Father God, You are my Deliverer. You set me free from anything that keeps me from the life You have for me (Psalm 70:5).

Legends of the Faith

How did Josiah transform a nation?
- He was teachable/coachable
- He overcame his past
- He built the house of God
- He identified with the word

We need revival and it starts in the HEARTS of each of US

2Ki 23:25 Neither before nor after Josiah was there a king like him who turned to the LORD as he did--with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength, in accordance with all the Law of Moses.

Pro 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.

Pro 27:6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
