Z is for…

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts….

If we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit.
~ Galatians 5:25 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Congratulations, we made it to complete the A to Z Challenge. Job well done!

Z is for….Zest
Eagerness
Ardor
Life

To be honest, I struggled with the letter Z. I had nothing, nada, zilch until ten minutes ago!

Thank you for the championship and encouragement during the challenge. (smile)

I met a lot of talented writers.

Abundant blessings my friends.

Y is for…

If you fill your heart with regrets, of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
~ Unknown Author ~

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 3:13-14 ~

I may not be there yet but I am closer than I was yesterday.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Yesterdays.  Keeping the faith, is a spiritual lifeline, to yielding inner yearnings, not yet manifested.

Thoughts, of yesterday, can move or stop progression, for tomorrow.

Yesterday’s memories teach or change something.

Yielding
Everything
Serves
Toward
Enlightening
Recognizing
Discovering
Awaiting
Yearnings

Being thankful for yesterday. Praise The Lord.

Blessings for keeping the faith, for yesterday’s yearning, could be today’s manifestation.

Enjoy your day as we approach surviving the A to Z challenge.

W is for…

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
~ Unknown Author ~

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
~ Proverbs 21:23 ~

Trusting God is wisdom, knowing God is peace, loving God is strength, faith in God is courage.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Wahoo, a faithful week of new and wonderful possibilities–like completing the A to Z challenge. (grin)

Praise The Lord, the finish line is near. (smile)

The experience has been wonderful to meet and see other writers creative writing style on alphabetical topics.

Which brings me to W is for….

The power of words spoken, to ourself or about ourself, promotes self esteem and will renew the mind.

A renewed mind changes a mindset. A changed mindset brings freedom let things go.

Spiritual and emotional wholeness, along with self worth, are powerful attributes; when we know who we are in Christ. Praise The Lord.

It comes down to speaking better choices. Praying the solution, by faith, versus the problem.

We are God’s children, blessed, fearfully and wonderfully made, and highly favoured.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and wisdom to know who we are in Christ.

Enjoy your day and the X to Z challenge! (smile) Wahoo, something to do!

Feel free to share your thoughts.

U is for…

One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.
~ Unknown Author ~

He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. ~ Proverbs 17:27 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Celebrate the blessing that we made it, to the end, of the week.  Praise The Lord.

Celebrate God’s unconditional love and amazing grace.

Celebrate understanding friends, whose voice or presence, bring a warmth and uplifting smile within us.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and celebrate the small things.

Enjoy your day and the V to Z challenge! (smile)

T is for…

As you start and end your day, say ‘thank you’ for every little thing in your life. And you will come to realize how blessed you truly are.
~ Unknown Author ~

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.
~ Romans8:28~

Hello friends. (smile) Today, was kids day at the circus. Stayed home and enjoyed a noise free day. Praise The Lord. All is well in my world. Am a little distracted and just keeping the faith to finish the A to Z challenge.

Thank you for supporting my blogging effort. This is the longest stretch of posting since last year. Again, Praise The Lord.

Having a thankful attitude helps to see how really blessed we are, as well as, knowing how God works all things out.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and enjoy the U to Z challenge! (smile)

S is for…

In silence lies the ability to listen; to listen to ourselves, to others and to God. Listening is a lost art. Without it we cannot communicate, we cannot relate to each other and so we cannot live life meaningfully.

We need to learn to listen. Sitting in silence allows us to listen to ourselves and to understand. This silence can heal. The worries, the pain can be healed when we listen. Spiritual medicine is ever-present in the soul. Whenever we need it, to whatever extent we need it, we can find it within.
~ Author Unknown ~

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9 ~

To master life, control the mind. To control the mind, guard your speech.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) My schedule was off today. I made posting before midnight. (wink) Hope you had a super blessed day.

Spiritual strength. Spiritual growth. Self awareness. Seasons. God sustains.

Being spirit led helps the flesh man stay in check. Practice the pause before speaking.

Listening and silence are powerful during challenging moments.

Speak positive words by faith. We remember everything we say to ourself.

Speaking, Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, is powerful when thoughts of cannot whispers psst.

There is security knowing the grace of God is available daily, even when we stumble.

A smile can brighten a moment. A sense of humor keeps life balanced.

Nothing is more satisfying than letting go of coulda, shoulda, woulda. No second guessing, sometimes, it is, what it is, until it was.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and enjoy the T to Z challenge! (smile)
