The ABC’s of Faith

There’s a distinction between a spiritual and a worldly existence. Faith. Many things drive and contribute to life challenges. Victory comes when we realize ebbs and flows are temporary and it is, what it is. So count it all joy. (smile)

Ah, the blessing of a personal relationship with God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, and his daily mercy and grace, gives the ability to walk, crawl or baby step through seasons with the ABC’s of faith to count it all joy.
~ Ann V Friend ~

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
~ James 1:2-8 ~


Hello friends. (smile) As I say goodbye to 2015, I thank God for my faith in Him.  Throughout 2015, my faith was tested and retested.  Praise The Lord, faith and grace, to crawl and baby step my way through.

The ABC’s of faith is quite liberating to count it all joy, regardless of things and stuff or Y moments.

The ABCs of faith produce and sustain patience to run the race, while counting it all joy across temporary seasons of challenges.

Wisdom is faith in God that can make all things possible.

Keeping the faith speaks I can, I have and I will. Can I get a witness? (wink)

Abundant blessings my friends as we say adieu to 2015 and welcome to 2016. Happy New Year!

Feel free to share your 2015 comments or thoughts.

IWSG Misdirection

Hello friends. (smile) A belated welcome to our June IWSG Host and Co-hosts.

Misdirection is irrelevant things and stuff or Y’s wanting something that’s really nothing but takes up all your time.

Sometimes misdirection is what if drills.
Sometimes misdirection interrupts our ability to run the race.
Sometimes misdirection can take up the whole day.
Sometimes misdirection is a test.
Sometimes misdirection can drive someone nuts!

Misdirection is prevalent at the circus.

Working full time and trying to write toward the end of a work day is challenging.  Just keep the faith to run the race.

Keep the faith walking through misdirection because at the end, of the day, sleep comes easy and ah what a blessing! Praise The Lord.

Your thoughts are always welcome.

Faith to Run The Race

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.”
~ Amy Gatliff ~

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
~ Hebrews 11:1-3 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m off schedule and late posting again today. Whoops.

I see run the race with many possibilities. At least 28 days, of possibilities, will finish the month. (wink)

Praise The Lord for giving me vigor to keep writing. Wahoo, something to do. (smile)Here is where my creativity and imagination met. (grin)

The possibilities, to run the race, will be a used as a metaphor–the way I use the circus. Oooh, the possibilities. (wink)

Facing a day, by faith, to run the race, while walking through can really be a blessings.

Blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith to run the race. (smile)

Ready, Set, Go

There is no safest place in this world than that peaceful world you created with your imagination. There is no safest relationship in this life than your own relationship with yourself.
~ Unknown Author ~

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
~ 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m walking on the wild side again. Wahoo, something to do. (wink)

Discipline

Roll with it.
~ AF~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m walking on the wild side, by participating, once again in the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) hosted by BlogHer.

I’m going to have faith that I’ll finish the month this time. (smile) Keeping the faith and building my courage up for the big writing challenge coming in November. (shock face)

The theme for September’s NaBloPoMo is healing. The neat thing about participating is that they provide writing prompts or we can write about anything; as long as we post daily. (wink)

Discipline. Participating will help discipline my time for writing and meet other bloggers. I have found that I do better when I have a challenge with a timeframe. (wink)

I may have to reduce myself to one game I can play a day. (shock face) Withdrawals to one game with no baby steps. Ugh!

How about you, any discipline challenges?

Faith. I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. Praise The Lord. (smile)

Blessings, my friends, as you enjoy Labor Day festivities or just relax doing something fun. (smile)
