Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

Happy New Year

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. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
~ Romans 8:28-29 ~

A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.
~ David Brinkley ~

Happy New Year, my friends. (smile) This is my fifth time participating in BlogHer’s National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo).

I have yet to complete a whole month. (shock face) That changes today. (smile)

The Lord renewed my confidence and courage, to come here and write, by reminding me that I can do all things through Christ that strengtheneth me. Thank you, Lord.

So I share this same blessing with you. Be you, because you can do all things through Christ…. and only you can tell your story.

The theme for January’s NaBloPoMo is Habit. Oh the fun we can have with habits. (wink)

Stay tuned, it going to be interesting and encouraging!

I stopped making New Years resolutions years ago. It caused too much angst when I failed.

Here are some things I learned about failures:

Sometimes God has something better.

Sometimes, failure launches us toward our destiny.

Sometimes, failure is God’s will for that season because our motive is wrong.

Sometimes failure brings maturity and spiritual growth.

Sometimes, failure makes us humble.

Sometimes, faith is born out of failure.

Life is about sharing to help and encourage one another. It’s what The Lord leads me to do.

I’m just a humble vessel giving glory to my Lord and Saviour through obedience. Thank you Lord.

So friends, let’s have faith that 2015 is the year that God will bless us abundantly using all things to get us where we need to be! Praise The Lord. (smile)

As always, feel free to share your thoughts. (smile)
