When you are older you will understand how precious little things, seemingly of no value in themselves, can be loved and prized above all price when they convey the love and thoughtfulness of a good heart.
~ Edwin Booth ~
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.
~ Philippians 4:8 ~
Hello friends. (smile) It’s a beautiful thing to recognize the blessings in our life. It’s a beautiful thing to wake up and realize you’re in a new season.
It’s a beautiful thing to participate in the accomplishments of others in our life. (smile)
Promotion. Retirement. Birth of a child. New job. New relationship. Fill in the blank_________________. It’s the little things that touch the heart.
Accomplishments bring a new season. A new season of possibilities. A season of more faith.
At the end of a hectic week, I realized that I am walking into a new season. Praise The Lord!
Spending time thanking God for all that He has done, is doing and will do in our life draws Him closer and is heartfelt praise.
Friends, I have come full circle in my faith and trust in God. I share this because there were times, I struggled to keep the faith. (shock face) Sometimes, we need to keep our hopes and dreams between ourself and God. (nervous smile)
Sometimes, we have to keep the faith, in spite of others speaking against the very thing that we are standing on faith for God to manifest. I believe, they mean well and speak from their own lack of faith experiences.
I encourage you to put anything not of faith at the foot of the cross. I encourage you to build your faith and trust in God.
To walk by faith, there is no doubt. To walk by faith, there is no what if. To walk by faith, is to trust God, believing our faith is aligned with His will for our life.
Walking through new seasons can be daunting, when we give thoughts to doubt and unbelief. This is where renewing the mind, and thinking on Philippians 4:8, helps to know that there is nothing negative about good things from above and remind us of all the other blessings God walked us through. (smile) He is worthy to be praised.
Blessings as we keep the faith and walk through our new season, trusting God to lead us step by step and to think on the positive aspects of our life. Glory to God! (smile)
