Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

Every survival kit should include a sense of humor.

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 strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:11-13 ~ 

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 18 of the A to Z Challenge. I’m using okay as a metaphor for being content. These are my thoughts.

As we grow and mature spiritually, understanding that okay is a beautiful place to be until God manifest _______________ (fill in the blank).

I believe ebbs and flows, in any season, strengthens and deepens faith in him because he walked us through before. (smile)

There are times, we give too much power to stuff that is not worth the angst. The power of speaking, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”, uplifts our spirit to be okay.

Be okay until………

The upside to okay:
  
Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy your day.

I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
