Keep The Faith

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Count It All Joy When…

Appreciate the Unexpected. ~ Anonymous ~

And we know that all things together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28 ~

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
~ James 1:2-3 ~

Hello friends. (smile) It’s a beautiful thing when The Lord gives understanding, to us, through His Word. It’s a beautiful thing to understand the power of specific prayers.

I’ll be the first to admit, once upon a time, I struggled in my Christian walk. I struggled in my faith. I struggled in developing a personal relationship with God, through His son, Jesus.

Let’s just say, I struggled until I got tired of going around the same mountain and surrendered. Praise The Lord, I’ve come a long way.

I’ve learn to appreciate and count it all joy as I keep moving forward, by faith, as God puts more patience in my life.

Count it all joy, when we pray and God answers.

Count it all joy, when we have wisdom to understand life is sowing and reaping. Life is realizing we can’t give what we don’t have. It comes from with. Life is sharing and helping one another.

It’s a beautiful thing to share “once upon a time” testimonies. It’s truly tough when we don’t know what we don’t know.

Count it all joy, when things in life can feel surreal.

Count it all joy, when somethings are forgotten and somethings linger, just enough to dwell on day in and day out.

Count it all joy, when trials and tribulations (things and stuff) help us grow and builds patience.

Count it all joy, when X, Y and Z moments challenge us.

Count it all joy, when we take responsibility for wrong choices.

Count it all joy, when God removes anything or anyone keeping us stuck.

Count it all joy, when we realize the past can’t keep us prisoners or stop our future blessings.

Count it all joy, when we understand nothing nor anyone is perfect, except Jesus.

Count it all joy, when it is, what it is. Let it go.

Count it all joy, when we know who we are and what we bring to the table.

Count it all joy, when the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Count it all joy, when we know, if God is for us, who can be against us.

Count it all joy that God loves us even when we stumble.

Count it all joy, that there will always be naysayers.

Once upon a time, we were naysayers. Let’s bless them and live our life thanking God that we’re not where we use to be.

Blessings, my friends, as we count it all joy!

Patience and Silence

Patience and silence are two powerful energies. Patience makes you mentally strong. Silence makes you emotionally strong.
~ Author Unknown ~

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
~ Romans 5:3-5 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Sometimes, life throws challenges, tests or fill in the blank____________.

Sometimes, we can forget about the retesting of a previous victory. (shock face) Sometimes, we participate in nonsense.

IMG_0719.JPG
I had to reset for a few days because I failed a retesting twice. Ugh. Two different days and it was still a no go on both tests.

Praise The Lord for His mercy and grace. (smile) Praise The Lord when we don’t beat ourself up for losing our cool and failing the test.

Remember Romans 8:28. All things.

I’m learning that patience and silence builds spiritual strength and produces spiritual fruit to endure things and stuff during Y moments. I’m understanding that life does go on even when I fail the test. (smile)

I believe patience has the most retesting. So I’m walking through retesting by faith. Do it by faith.

There are some things designed to help us grow. Walk through with patience and silence. Remember, everyone has an opinion. We don’t have to participate in every idle comment.

Patience and silence becomes easier when we choose to let stuff go!

Patience and silence becomes easier, when you know who you are.

Patience and silence disarms our button when being pushed.

Patience and silence can bring a smile when we know God is always in charge. Praise The Lord.

Blessings as we learn to choose better while walking through testing with patience and silence. (smile)
