"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

About three or four years ago I made a very good life decision! It was simple! I just changed my radio station from 104.7 to 89.7! At first I would channel surf between the two stations! Then Caroline was born and I decided that it was best for my family to be constantly listening to positive Christian radio! Don't get me wrong a lot of radio stations offer encouragement, but I really found 89.7 to be our family friendly radio station! We love it! Both cars have the first radio key set to 89.7!
Every morning I listen to an excerpt on 89.7 from Lysa Terkeurst from Proverbs 31. Lysa always shares simple stories that will leave you thinking about your own life!
This morning's radio ministry message really spoke to me and I'm going to include it here (It's from the Proverbs 31 website). Today's title: "Your Purse". So, what kind of purse would you be?  Read to find out!

Your Purse

Boy do I love purses, but mine isn’t always organized! Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Recently a friend watched as I fumbled through my bag trying to find my keys and all kind of things started to spill out. We laughed about how much I’d been carrying around.
Then we started talking about the similarities between women and purses. Some of us are like a pretty purse, beautiful on the outside but hiding an ugly mess inside. Or maybe we’re like a small purse that only has room for a few things; God wants to invite us outside our comfort zone, but we’ve decided to stay safe. Or we could be like a big purse, trying to carry all kinds of things, involved in so many activities that we end up flustered!
I know we’re not handbags, but if we were what kind of purse would you be?
