Learning to Live , Again, On Purpose.

The solution for Procrastination…a devotion from God.


I realize its been over a week since I’ve posted. I’ve been writing and procrastinating about working on my teaching for the upcoming Women’s Encounter with God weekend. I’m teaching Prodigal Son again and have had on my heart for months that we are women, not men. I know that the gender terms are of no consequence, that God simply see us as His children.

 However I am certain when it comes to the prodigal in us, the women go into the world seeking an entirely different experience. We do not prodigal for wealth and power. We do not prodigal to be independent of our families and the rules of our “father’s” home. Women seek a “father’s rule and protection”, rather than losing our inheritance financially, we lose our inheritance of innocence and self worth! So I procrastinate on because, I’m having issue finding appropriate information on the Prodigal daughter.  

As, I sit reading emails and devotionals therein, God speaks, AMEN!

Psalm 138:8
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

The Lord brings me along day by day,according to His timing and plan. Regardless, of what I am experiencing or feeling, I am on the correct path. I am blessed with the knowledge that whatever is going on in my life, God is working on perfecting the things that concern Me! He is causing it to good manifest, or He is removing the contrary from my life. He is finishing Me.

This scripture is a Promise to us all, awesome and liberating. He is handling everything, freeing me from worry and concern.

You see…in Psalm 27:13 it says,

I would have dispaired unless I believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

I know that I will see and receive the goodness of God in my life. And so will you.

So I’m off to writing again, God will deliver the message He plans for me to teach for Him, in His timing. Of this I am certain.

That is a positive thought for me. Hope it blesses you.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
