Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Risk

Wahoo, TGIF, my friends (smile) This quote spoke to me! It represents taking chances or another way, to look at this, would be faith. Life happens, regardless of our status in life. (shock face)

I will mention it again, we all bring something to the table. Welcome to my table (smile)

Today, I’m serving up faith and encouragement. It takes courage to be different. It takes courage not to follow the crowd. It takes courage to come here everyday and share parts of life, sometimes with no feedback. It takes courage to ignore less than kind remarks. My friends, that’s faith, doing it anyway, day after day. (smile)

Many search the internet for various things and stuff. Keep writing, keep posting. Our words will always be there. God gives free will to choose. When ready, eyes are open to the very message needed to be seen! (smile)

It’s a beautiful thing when we get our “aha” moments. To truly understand living life, is when we’re comfortable and free to be ourself. We learn to adapt and adjust to surroundings and others. Sometimes, it is what, it is. Roll with it! (smile)

Life is too short to stay on the sidelines afraid to live life or worst, having a life of woulda, coulda, shoulda! (shock face) Have faith and choose to believe it is possible. It is different for each of us. Speak positive things to it. Have the courage to prepare for it because it will come, when we’re ready! (smile)

Here’s the thing, the past does not determine who we are today. If we must look back, look for reference only–not validation for today. There will always be something or someone trying to push a button to make us react.

Practice the pause, breathe, smile and say nothing. This is a tough one to do, it does require spiritual fruit–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control) and practice.

Remember, this is one where my retest is in the double digits! There is a mountain that has my foots print all over it! (shock face) Thank God for mercy and grace! Friends, we must keep our sense of humor to stay balanced. (grin)

I have faith that someday, I will pass the retest! (smile)

Let us always remember God can use all things, as stated in Romans 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Be blessed, by faith, and have a marvelous day! (a wink and smile)

I welcome your thoughts.

Great post! Taking that leap of faith is hard, but I’m doing it. I don’t want my life to be one of those woulda/coulda/shoulda’s. Thanks and God bless!
