Things about me. I love reading, music and playing games on my IPHONE. (smile) God blessed me with the gift of encouragement, ways to sow His Word, a sense of humor and a beautiful smile. (cheesy smile)
I’m an introvert by preference. (shock face) I’ve learned to adapt and adjust in situations and through the storms of life, it’s how “roll with it” and “let it go” became sound bites for me. The joy of The Lord is my strength. (smile)
Like many others out there, I’ve had a difficult season to walk through. I was never alone. I love how my Lord and Saviour protects and takes care of me. (smile) I pray a lot. I pray for each of you. (smile)
I thank God for the courage to write and be different. There will always be someone who needs a kind word or courage to be their self.
I am grateful for the awesome people I’ve met through blogging. I am humbled by your words of encouragement back to me. (smile) God bless you!
I love blogging and writing, for the different writing forums, because it’s a way to sow encouragement and hope to someone who may or may not know they are not alone or the next step. I am a humble and nice person who tries to visit and support many different bloggers. (smile)
I blog from my own personal experiences in hope that someone finds comfort and gets to know God, through His Son, Jesus, like I know Him. (smile)
I sow and God waters. I’m an open vessel about my Father’s business. ( smile) I hope this gives you more insight into Ann Friend.
Be blessed! (smile) As always, your thoughts are welcome.
Romans 14:19 – Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
Everyone is dealing with something. Encouragement gives us strength to endure. Encouragement lets us know, we’re not alone. Encouragement is about believing we can get that promotion; we can relocate and start over; we don’t have to settle for less than God’s best; or fill in the blank________________.
Encouragement is making an effort to help someone see their struggle is temporary. Encouragement is keeping peace in unkind situations. They are challenges all around us, I’ve learned that we can only control ourself. Breathe, remain calm and listen. We don’t have to participate in angry ranting and raving.
It’s takes two. Most times, people just need to vent, so be a pair of ears that listen. This would be encouragement by presence, no words needed. (smile)
Encouragement is rare these days. When did we stop talking and encouraging one another? These days, it appears, it’s about what we don’t do or what we don’t have. (shock face)
The possibilities are endless to what encouragement can do for each and everyone of us. (smile)
Thoughts and comments are welcomed. (smile)
Be blessed, encouraged and enjoy your day! (smile)
🎶Happy Monday to ya🎶 😜 By faith, let the joy of The Lord be our strength today!
Everyone has a story. God knows what it takes to move us forward to grow. Until we realize change is an individual thing; 🎶🎶we’ll be going around the mountain, one more time🎶. 😩
We have to keep our sense of humor! 😜 Stuff happens, how we chose, to deal with it, shows our growth.
Here’s the thing, some stuff weights us down and should be released to God. God is the only one who can change and heal a heart! Stuff keeps us stuck. Let it go. 😰
We must learn to be ourselves! 😜 God loves you! Ain’t nobody like you! 😀
In a sense, these 7 Rules sum up Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me and Romans 8:28 – 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.
I especially like Rule #2 and #7. 😜 What are yours?
The Starfish story is a beautiful illustration to recognize the opportunities God gives us everyday to provide encouragement, hope and love to those around us. 😜
Let our words build up. Let us show love through encouraging one another. Let us be doers of the word. Let us be positive. Let us be the light. Let us pray to be the change that makes a difference somewhere. 😀
God bless us, as we make a difference remembering Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me”.
