Celebrate Keeping Hands Off


Experience is something you cannot learn from others, but only yourself.
~ Unknown Author ~

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

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 5:1-5 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m a little late to the party! Welcome Lexa and co-hosts to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

This week, I celebrate disappointments and keeping my hands off situations where God is working. No worries, all is well in my world.

Praise The Lord, for my experience going around the same mountain. (grin)

Experience is the best teacher.

There is something awesome about learning and knowing experience for ourselves.

There are times, the Lord leads us to sow encouragement, kindness, a word, a smile, lunch, a bus ticket, __________ (fill in the blank) to help someone.

Then there are times, someone may ask for help to circumvent something that God is doing in their life.

When God is working and need our help, he’ll let us know. Otherwise, we ‘re interfering. This is where pray is powerful and helpful.

Isn’t life grand (wink)

We live, we learn. Experience. Praise The Lord for his mercy and his grace.

There are some things we’ll never learn unless we crawl or walk through it. I like crawling through, its less energy. (smile)

Blessings my friends and enjoy the long holiday weekend!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

We all experience disappointments from time to time.

Disappointments can be unsettling to the psyche. Disappointments can cause us to question why or doubt. Sometimes, its timing.

Like failures, disappointments can be a blessings. Both bring an adjustment, revamp or open door that evolves to something better.

Patience is required through most things in life.

We’re blessed when we keep the faith to try and try again.

Faith through disappointments become easier to understand when we realize how God can work all things out.

Most times, he has something better. Thank you Lord.

Blessings, as we have faith through disappointments.   It will all work out.
