By Faith, I Declare



God bless us, by faith, that we’re blessed and highly favored! Thy will be done.

Repeat After Me, I Am…

Repeat after me, I am a masterpiece.  The power of words that we speak about ourself, by faith, will build confidence, as we renew our mind, by continuing to replace negative thoughts will keep us moving forward.  😜

Remember, it’s a process. As we move forward, we must find balance. We must be able to smile or laugh at ourself during those times when things or stuff pop up. 😁 There will be times frustration creeps in, refuse to entertain the negativity. Refuse to give up! Faith, keep the faith!

Celebrate the small victories and praise The Lord for his mercy and his grace and keep moving forward! 😄

God bless us, by faith, as we choose to speak positive and uplifting words to ourselves, as our mind is renewed and we continue to grow in Christ. Let thy will be done.

Comments and thoughts are welcome. 😄

God Doesn’t Care

Showing love to our neighbor! 😜 God bless you!

Free, Fun or Interesting

This post is in response to an article here, part of a project titled ‘Project O’, which is all about people’s opinions on opinions, and whether culture dictates what we feel or how we express it.  Only the first four paragraphs are actually in response to the article, the rest just grew into some gargantuan speech I didn’t expect.

I know that not everyone believes in God, and if not, that is between you and your own heart.  Personally, I do.  Not with the ‘God’/Religion I was raised in, or at least, not in the same way that I was raised to practice, but I do believe in God, and I do believe that Jesus Christ was His issue, sent here to show us the true path.

I also happen to believe that the ‘path’ has been horrendously distorted by mankind.

This post is mainly a rambling…

Stand Outside

Thank God, it’s Friday! 😀 Sometimes, we must lighten up. Smile, laugh, and recognize, there is more to life than things and stuff! 😨 If we must, sing a song, play a game, watch a movie, roll with it! 😜


God bless us, by faith, as we’re outstanding and enjoying today by casting our cares to you. Let thy will be done.

Smile, it looks good on ya! 😜

Challenge Yourself

By faith, let us challenge ourselves to spend the next 24 hours without any complaints, criticism or speaking of the past. 😁 We have been renewing our mind, by faith! Right? 😉 Praise The Lord!


Remember, life is a process. There will always be things and stuff. As we grow, things and stuff get easier to handle. 😰 Let us consider this fun challenge as our practice for the test! 😜 Wahoo, something to do! Ain’t life grand! 😜 Thank God for his mercy and his grace! 😀

God bless us, by faith, as we exercise our spiritual fruit long suffering (patience) and temperance (self control) while meditating on: Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. Philemon 1: 6 – That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus; and James 3:10 – Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

Let thy will be done.

Thoughts? Anyone? Anyone? 😀

Faith It and Roll With It Wednesday

Happy faith it and roll with it Wednesday! 😜 God has already equipped us, by faith, for things and stuff today! 😁 His grace is sufficient for this day! Roll with it!


Smile, we’re blessed! 😜 It takes courage to be ourselves! Roll with it! If God be for us, who can be against us? 😀 All together now, roll with it! Right. 😉 Praise The Lord!

Things and stuff has no power unless we yield to it! Let it go. Faith it and roll with it! 😀 God is in charge!

God bless us, as we faith it and roll with it, by meditating, on John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Let thy will be done.

Repeat After Me, I Am…

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:13 ~

Hello friends (smile) Today, let’s replace negative thoughts, about ourself, one thought at a time. (shock face)

Renewing the mind is serious business to keep moving forward. Look back at the past, as a gauge, not to dwell or give up. (nervous smile)

Replacing thoughts is another part, in the process, of growing and maturing. Thus, renewing the mind. (gritted teeth smile) Old habits die hard!

Sometimes, singing or praising Jesus can stop thoughts that can overwhelm us. (smile) Finding something that works is the key.

We have to choose and refuse to entertain negative self thoughts. (smile) Faith, we must do it by faith! (wink and a smile)

As we grow, mature, our mind is renewed, it becomes easier to roll with things and stuff, no matter, who slings it! (cheesy smile) In time, that button won’t work anymore! Smile and keep the faith!

Be blessed today, by faith, as we continue to renew our mind and meditate on Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Smile, it looks good on you!
