Celebrate Faith Through It


When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is!
~ Author Unknown ~

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
~ 1 Peter 5:10-11 ~

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.

Hope all is well in your world. (wink) Nothing gets attention more than health challenges, plus accepting the fact that reading cheaters no longer work.

Celebrate faith through it.

Reality forces change. A realization that stress is cumulative.

To everything, there is a season. Faith through it.

The valleys and the mountains.

It’s been hectic and drama filled days at the circus. Challenging conversations. My little maladies stabilizing while adjusting to changes beyond my control. Sticking to a routine, of proper rest, helped to balance energy level.

The blessings.

The power of praying comforts and releases everything to God, who can change seasons. I’ve been praying and releasing everything to God. Thank you Lord.

By the grace of God, today, I can smile because all is well in my world again. Praise The Lord. (wink)

There is something powerful about seeing good after a bad season.

There is something powerful about letting go.

There is something powerful about knowing who we are in Christ.

Too many times, energy is wasted on the why of it. It is, what it is.

Faith through it, whatever it is. I love the quote above because without the valleys, we wouldn’t recognize the blessings of the mountains. Praise The Lord.

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

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
