Resilient In Christ – Wisdom

Knowledge is knowing what to say. Wisdom is knowing whether or not to say.
~ Unknown Author ~

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
~ Proverbs 8:8-9 ~

Resilient in Christ perseveres by experience. Everything we hear doesn’t require a response. It’s a choice.

Sometimes, no response is wisdom.

Enjoy your day!

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Faith Through Any Season

Life works in seasons; which means you won’t be stuck where you are forever.
~ Unknown Author ~

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well as we start the new year.  Thank God, we’re blessed to see another day.

Today’s encouraging thought is faith through any season.  Timing is everything.

Change is inevitable. Change is experienced based on choices and having faith through the experience.

To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose is life experiences as illustrated in the scripture above.

Experience develops spiritual maturity.

Experience gives wholeness.

Experience shows and teaches.

Experience is showing Jesus to a hurting world.

Experience becomes a testimony to help others.

Faith through any season keeps moving forward and refuses to remain stuck.

Faith through any season trumps negativity every single time. (wink)

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Celebrate Keeping Hands Off


Experience is something you cannot learn from others, but only yourself.
~ Unknown Author ~

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
~ Romans 5:1-5 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m a little late to the party! Welcome Lexa and co-hosts to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

This week, I celebrate disappointments and keeping my hands off situations where God is working. No worries, all is well in my world.

Praise The Lord, for my experience going around the same mountain. (grin)

Experience is the best teacher.

There is something awesome about learning and knowing experience for ourselves.

There are times, the Lord leads us to sow encouragement, kindness, a word, a smile, lunch, a bus ticket, __________ (fill in the blank) to help someone.

Then there are times, someone may ask for help to circumvent something that God is doing in their life.

When God is working and need our help, he’ll let us know. Otherwise, we ‘re interfering. This is where pray is powerful and helpful.

Isn’t life grand (wink)

We live, we learn. Experience. Praise The Lord for his mercy and his grace.

There are some things we’ll never learn unless we crawl or walk through it. I like crawling through, its less energy. (smile)

Blessings my friends and enjoy the long holiday weekend!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)
