IWSG Baby Steps


Even though they don’t have anything in common, doubt can be in a very big conflict with faith.

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 ~

Hello friends (smile) Wahoo, it’s the first Wednesday of the month where IWSG members are blessed to share our thoughts and support other writers.

I extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to Alex and our November co-hosts:

Tyrean Martinson http://tyreanswritingspot.blogspot.com/

I usually write encouragement about keeping the faith walking or crawling through things and stuff or those Y moments.

I have an insecurity this month that makes me smile because its self imposed.

There are times I put too much pressure on myself to write.

There are times I doubt my ability to complete a month of continuous writing.

Still a no-go to complete NaBloPoMo for a whole month.

Yay, I did complete the 30 day A to Z Challenge, by the grace of God. (smile)

There are times I unplug to have peace of mind from writing.

Baby steps. Baby steps as my faith is tested is another way to keep moving forward.

I’m learning to baby step my way to write shorter posts some days.

I’m learning to baby step my way to a better writing plan. (wink)

It is, what it is, until it’s not.

Keeping the faith and baby steps help to calm my angst and breathe easier. (smile)

Blessings and enjoy your day!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Faith to Practice The Pause

Don’t let people drive you crazy when you know it’s in walking distance.
~Author Unknown~

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I require lots of faith, lots of deep breathing and God’s mercy and grace for Mondays. (shock face)

Praise The Lord, Monday’s are easier to bear. Just not my favorite day.

Faith to practice the pause.

So faith to practice the pause is appropriate today. Wahoo, something to do! (ha)

Breaking the day into moments work wonders at the circus.

Having faith in increments allow breathing to stay steady state. Grace is needed when hungry.

When the little darlings start pushing buttons, breathe and practice the pause.

When unscheduled meetings pop up, breathe and practice the pause.

When _________________(fill in the blank) breathe and practice the pause.

There are times, laughter helps. (grin)

Blessings friends, as we have faith and fun, to breathe and practice the pause today. (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts on practice the pause. (smile)

IWSG Faith


The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I hope all is well in your world. (wink)  Its been wacky times at the circus and my last week in my poetry class. 

I extend a warm welcome to the IWSG July co-hosts:

I have faith that someday I’ll write full time. (grin) Until then, I write when I can because my day job provides food to microwave and the ability to pay bills.  (grin)  

Faith has been strength to survive the busy times at the circus. Thank you Lord.

Wahoo, something to do. (laughing)

Faith keeps “all is well” in my world.

Faith grows when we believe in our abilities.

Faith gets stronger when we realize there will always be critics. God bless em!

Faith builds courage to be different.

Faith believes one step closer to that masterpiece, that mate, that job, that retirement or fill in the blank___________.

Sometimes, faith smiles and says “get ready”.

Blessing friends, as we walk by faith and enjoy our day! (smile)

Have faith to share your thoughts.

Appreciate 

Appreciate the Unexpected. ~ Anonymous ~

Hello friends.  (smile)  Today, let’s appreciate and praise God for the blessings in life.   Thank you Lord. 



Let’s have faith and appreciate the blessings to come.  Praise The Lord.

To God be the glory! 

Abundant blessings, by faith, my friends. (smile)

Faith

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.  ~Galatians 5:22-23 ~

Constant kindness can accomplish much.  As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstandings, mistrust and hostility to evaporate. ~ Albert Schweitzer ~

Hello friends.  (smile)  Hope all is well in your world. 

Praise The Lord that I see light at the end of the tunnel with the projects I’ve been working.  

Praise The Lord that things and stuff and Y moments are easier at the circus.  (wink)

Praise The Lord for answered prayers. 



Faith builds every time we stay focused on Him and remember who we are in Christ.

Faith builds every time we remember that nothing is too hard for Him when we release and cast our struggles to Him. 

Faith builds every time we are kind to those not kind to us.

Faith builds every time we recognize walking through without complaining becomes powerful within our spirit. 

Faith builds every time we choose to let things go.  

Faith builds every time we stand and allow God to move on our behalf.

Faith builds every time, we remember God always provides what we need.  Yesterday. Today,  and each day we are blessed to see another day.

Faith builds every time we understand the wisdom of God working all things out for our good. 

Blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith!  (smile)
