Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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 ~

Celebrate Victory Does Come


The great advantage of being in a rut is that when one is in a rut, one knows exactly where one is.
~ Arnold Bennett ~

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
~ 1 Corinthians 15:57-58~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

This week, I celebrate no longer in a rut. Victory does come. Praise The Lord.

When faith is tested; challenging moments just keep on coming; and praying becomes a hour by hour survival; we can find ourselves in rut.

A rut experience can be positive and negative.

I pretty much stop talking about stuff and started castings my cares.

Hashtag # careless. (wink)

I slowly became okay with a sense of tranquility because it is, what it is. Keep moving forward.

I love the quote above because it helped me understand, yup, I’m in a rut, no pretending I’m not, and in time, victory does come.

Being in a rut can give clarity to a situation, by knowing it’s temporary, and evidently victory does come. (whew)

Being in a rut teaches something and is quite humbling.

Keep the faith and run your race.

Victory does come. Praise The Lord, my rut season is over.

Abundant blessings, my friends, keep the faith and enjoy your weekend.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Glad you’re out of the rut! I like that saying as well. A rut is lukewarm at best and we know God doesn’t want that.
