By Faith, I Declare

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
~ Ephesians 3:17-20 ~

Hello friends (smile)  Life is a process. Good and bad. Ebbs and flows. Somedays are better than others. Choosing to stay positive, in spite of things and stuff, and X, Y and Z, requires faith and trust in God. No doubts. No worries. No fears.  Faith.  Trust.  Spirit led.

Negativity is draining and gains nothing! (shock face) What’s that old saying about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. (gritted teeth smile)

Sometimes, we just need to breathe before speaking or smile and say nothing! (wink and a smile) Roll with it!

Spell it with us– C H A N G E. Change how we react to things and stuff! (shock face) As we grow and renew our mind, it becomes easier to keep our focus, which helps, when things and stuff, just keeps on coming! (shock face)

During challenging times, we can thank God for his mercy and his grace. No need to beat ourselves up when we stumble. Grace. (smile)

We always have a choice on how we react. Choose. Repel or draw. Negative or positive.

Blessings, as we have faith to enjoy this day! (smile)

By Faith, I Declare

Faith, spiritual fruit and the Word of God brings a renewal of our mind, as well as, growth and maturity–all from within us! (smile) It’s a continuing process as long as we crawl, walk and run on this earth. (smile) Praise The Lord!

The Holy Spirit and obedience are required for faith, spiritual fruit and knowing the Word to keep moving forward in our Christian walk. (smile)
