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

Celebrate Still Standing

Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
~ Anonymous ~

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) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well. (smile) Still standing is my metaphor for Y moments that test us. This week, I celebrate still standing through challenging Y moments. (wink) Praise The Lord.

Still standing is experiencing and getting victory over yesterday’s unnecessary stress; dysfunctional relationships; toxic circus environments; object of bullies, manipulators and gossipers; betrayals; health issues; or _______________(fill in the blank).

Still standing is the most powerful self encouragement because I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Still standing remembers the faithfulness of God.

Still standing believes in who we are in Christ.

Still standing puts on the whole armour.

Still standing forgives.

Still standing knows the love of God.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend.
