Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

Celebrate It Is, What It Is

It is neither good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.
~ William Shakespeare ~

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) Happy New Year, Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to a new year to celebrate the small things.

This week, I praise The Lord, for his love, mercy and grace during challenging times. Patiently content was spiritually manifested when I realized I’m encouraged to celebrate it is, what it is.

The power to be content in whatever state is liberating because it is, what it is.

Forgive. Show mercy and grace through offenses. It is, what it is.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Enjoy your weekend. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Mercy and grace are always there. It’s a wonder why we work against it so hard, when it’s so freely given.

We might struggle with mercy and love, but He doesn’t.

Amen, I have learned that somethings we just can’t change and those things were designed to change us, mentally and spiritually. Not to weaken but to strengthen our ability to abide steadfast in him and through adverse and offensive seasons.
