God’s Protection

Sometimes all we need is some personal space and time to release, reflect, and focus on all the amazing things that we have been blessed with in life.

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.
~ Romans 8:28 ~

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.
~ Philippians 4:10-13 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world and you had a blessed Thanksgiving! (smile) All is well in my world. Praise The Lord.

I’ve been enjoying life in spite of things and stuff or Y moments. Here’s the thing, adversity and free will. We’re all different and can press each other’s buttons. (shock face)

In life, we could be the something or someone that irritates others. Sometimes, we, like others, are not ready. Ah, the cycle of life to adapt and adjust.

As spiritual fruit grows within us, it becomes easier to adapt and adjust to things and stuff or Y moments.

It’s a beautiful thing to learn contentment by renewing the mind and meditating on Psalm 91.

It’s a beautiful thing to realize faith and trust in God is all that matters; because at the end of the day, we’re still standing and life goes on. Glory to God. (smile)

It’s a beautiful thing to let it go. The “it” will be different for each of us, nonetheless, letting go brings freedom and breaks the bondage that keeps us stuck.

It’s a beautiful thing to practice the pause before answering foolishness. Silence, at times, speaks of spiritual maturity.

It’s a beautiful thing to understand choices and know that God always provides when we walk by faith and our choice is aligned with His will for our life.

It’s a beautiful thing to know that God is for us, who can be against us.

It’s a beautiful thing to behold all things. God can use all things to bring about spiritual growth, healing, maturity (wholeness) that leads to contentment of where we are today and His protection along the way.

Be blessed and content, as we keep the faith until God manifests our next step! (smile)

Letting Go Takes Love

Hello friends. (smile)
Sometimes, when we’re ready, letting go brings freedom to live life, by faith and trusting God, in all things, because love never fails. ~

We have to hurt in order to know. Fall in order to grow, lose in order to gain, because most of life’s lessons are taught through pain.

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~

Faith In God Grows Stronger

Anything is possible, my friend. Anything.
~ Author Unknown ~

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. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
~ Hebrews 11:1-3 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’ve had a great time celebrating. Here’s the thing, many times, we can become overwhelmed by circumstances. Faith in God, is the ultimate companion, along with prayer.

Sometimes, words spoken, over our situation, need to be rebuked and not received. Pray and have faith.

It’s a beautiful thing when our faith, in God, grows stronger. Praise The Lord.

Every single time, we choose faith, we are growing more spiritual fruit within us, faith grows stronger.

Every single time, we refuse to fret or have angst, about something or someone, faith grows stronger.

Every single time, we remember what He has already done, faith grows stronger.

How about that! (smile)

Faith, in God, is powerful when going through the ebbs and flow in life.

Faith, in God, is comfort when we remember we’re not alone.

Faith, in God, is peace from previous victories.

Faith, in God, grows when we know He can work all things out for our good.

Faith, in God, grows when we trust in His timing.

Faith, in God, grows when the blessing is manifested.

Faith is knowing God, through His Son, Jesus, and recognizing that anything is possible once aligned with His will.

Blessings, my friends, as our faith, in God, grows stronger today! (smile)

Wahoo! I’m Done

Hello friends. (smile) Today was my last dental appointment after 15 months of straight and serious dental work!

Wahoo, I’m done. DONE!

Praise The Lord. (smile)

I will be celebrating for a few days because there was some angst about implants. I prayed and had faith.

Today, my dentist informed me that implants are not needed, after all! Whew!

Again, Praise The Lord! (smile)

So friends, be blessed and enjoy the rest of the week. See you in a few days! (smile)

Something to Ponder

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
~ Proverbs 1:7 ~

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
~ Psalm 91:3-7 ~


There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
~ 1 John 4:18 ~

IWSG Balance

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.
– Amy Gatliff –

Hello friends and welcome to this months co-hosts, LG Keltner, Donna Hole, Lisa Buie-Collard and SL Hennessy. (smile) My message this month is short and a reminder to keep life balanced.

Balance is quite important these days. Trying to do everything without balance is exhausting.

I’m becoming content to do what I can each day. I encourage you to be content doing what you can.

Sometimes, a break from our normal routine does wonders for peace of mind.
Sometimes, just listening to music calms the nerves.
Sometimes, spending time with a friend talking and laughing warms the heart.
Sometimes, keeping our sense of humor lightens our mood.
Sometimes, quiet time promotes the best sleep.
Sometimes, ______________ (fill in the blank).

Just for fun, what is balance for you?

Blessings, as we remember to balance for the little things……

The Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness serves two ways, for us and for them. The memory loses power to sting.
~ Ann Friend ~

Hello friends. (smile) To say, I’ve been struggling with forgiveness is an understatement. I had to shut down and pray. Forgiveness kept coming to mind. 70 times 7.

I’ve been sharing my retesting failures and can honestly say there was a lacked of forgiveness on my part that was defeating me.

God opened my eyes to my lack of forgiveness. Until I forgave myself for reacting to things and stuff, that memory no longer stung. The power of forgiveness!

Got to love those aha moments. Praise The Lord.

Here is the reality, things and stuff happen and there are unkind people in life. Forgiveness 70 times 7.

When I forgive the thing, them and myself, I became content at the circus! No more angst. No more giving power to the memory. Forgiveness 70 times 7.

It’s a beautiful thing to fully understand the power of forgiveness. For ourself and for others. Glory to God.

Forgiveness like most things, in life, is a choice. Choose to forgive. Forgiveness is spiritual growth.

Forgiveness 70 times 7 is a lifetime. Aha, to forgive and let go is powerful and liberating.

Forgiveness is easier as we’re become more spiritual than fleshly.

Sometimes, we make wrong choices. Forgiveness 70 times 7.

Forgiveness, at the end of the day, stops the instant replay of shoulda.

Forgiveness stops angst and releases us to move forward by letting go.

Here’s the thing, it is painful walking through things and stuff or Y moments; forgiveness takes away the angst we internalize about the thing or the Y, by providing power to let go and move forward.

Wisdom is to forgive them and forgive ourself. We live and learn by understanding the power that forgiveness brings.

Blessings, as we understand that forgiveness is powerful!

Feel free to share your thoughts on the power of forgiveness.
