Wondering Wednesday #10

Welcome to Wondering Wednesday, hosted by Jessica at A Baker’s Perspective.

When you visit your favorite book blogs you learn a lot about books, but you don’t really learn that much about the bloggers who work tirelessly to get you that book info. The goal for Wondering Wednesday is to give you insight and a new perspective on the people behind the blogs you love.

We hope you enjoy learning about us bloggers. If you have a specific question for us, please click HERE. Make sure to join us each Wednesday as we respond to your questions.

This week’s question is:

What is one non-reading goal you’ve set for 2020?

I’m not a goal setter. I’m a to-do-list maker. So this question is a little difficult for me to answer. Suffice to say, I do have one spiritual goal that I have been working on since I was a little girl — to not be fearful.

I’m a scaredy cat. I have been since I was a child. I also have OCD and dreadful, fearful, fatalistic thoughts are a symptom of my OCD. Yay for me! I have to work VERY hard every day NOT to succumb to fear, and I am only successful when I spend time with God. Every single day I make sure to spend quality time with Jesus. Missing a day is not an option for me. If I miss time with Jesus I feel weak and vulnerable and open to the fear. But when I read my Bible and pray, I feel God’s peace and power to make it through another day. God truly is my shield.

What about you? What’s one non-reading goal you have?

  1. To try and get some crafting projects finished. I did one today! I had a quilted wall hanging that needed to haveca finished border put on it and I Did it!.
    We were looking for a house on line ( 51 years married and NEVER owned a house.) …. well we looked at three houses on Monday morning and picked one! God sure works fast! They accepted our offer by 5:00 p.m.! It was built by the developer of a subdivision for his mother and has had approximately 3 owners. The last owners had to sell because the wife has cancer. Please pray for them.
    We have the inspection on Thursday and close Aug 3! I thought I would never never have a house of my own! Miracles do exist! Praise God!

    1. Oh my goodness! Congratulations, Paula. This is such great news. God is good. I hope you have the best time decorating your new home. I’m sorry to hear about the former owners. Cancer is AWFUL! I hate it. And, yay for getting your crafting project finished. I bet it looks great!


  2. Yes. I totally understand your thoughts and where you are coming from!! I hate that we still have fleshly thoughts and fears. But one day we won’t!! Amen for that 🙂

  3. Time and time again I have lerned that God is with us, all we have to do is ask- then we need fear no evil. I set 20 goals at the start of 2020- 19 were non reading- some have had to be dropped because of Covid 19- a strange year for sure.
