IWSG Encouraged That I Can


Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.
~ Henry Ford ~

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:13 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Alex and March co-hosts to the first Wednesday of the month where we share….

Hope all is well in your world. (wink)

Thank God, my eyes adjusted to my two-in-one prescription glasses. Ugh, it’s been hoot! I’m thinking about getting a t-shirt that says objects are closer than I can gauge. (smile)

I was encouraged to keep wearing the glasses. I told myself, yes, I can do this.

It’s a beautiful and powerful attribute to encourage ourself, and one another.

Many times, it’s our self-talk that stops us. Life ebbs and flows and what we speak is enough to appreciate self-encouragement and encouragement to and from others.

I believe the ability to encourage ourself is empowering. It builds self-confidence when surrounded by negativity.

The ability to encourage “I can” and “you can” to someone can change anything.

Encouraged that I can write.
Encouraged that I can heal.
Encouraged that I can hope.

Encouraged that I can ___________ (fill in the blank).

Encouraged that I can keep the faith.

Encouraged that I can has unlimited possibilities.

Believe it, by faith, until you know, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Praise The Lord.

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

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

IWSG Attitude

“Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.” ~ Unknown Author~

Hello friends (smile) Have an attitude of faith to believe that we can accomplish anything. Those of us, who write, perceive deep within us, that there is a masterpiece in the making. Here’s the catch, we must believe in our abilities first! In time, the manifestation comes! (smile)

Like everything else in life, good things come to those that wait. (smile) Reminds me of my favorite spiritual fruits–patience and long-suffering. (shock face)

Let’s not forget, regardless of critics, having an attitude of faith, to believe, in ourself reinforces our belief in our talents to do what we do and not get discouraged. (smile) Think positive thoughts!

Many times, we put pressure on ourself…

Sometimes, it is what, it is. Roll with it! (smile) Bottom line, up front, by faith, we can and we will__________________ (fill in the blank)!

Blessings my friends, until we meet here next month. (smile)

IWSG Have Faith and Believe in Yourself

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” – Henry Ford –

Last month, I closed with encouraging words of faith, that someday, we’ll all write a masterpiece. (smile) This month, my encouragement goes one level deeper to say have faith and believe in yourself. That masterpiece will come. (smile)

It’s a beautiful thing to believe in yourself. Flaws and all. Embrace that. Like everything else in life, it starts with each of us. It comes from within. (smile)

Want love, love yourself first. Want respect, respect yourself first. Want to believe in something, believe in yourself first. Sow positive to reap positive.

Want to write. Write for you. Write from within your heart. Write what you know. Write about your (filled in the blank)_______________. If you like, we’ll love it. If you love it, we’ll like it. Words flow best in a peaceful and positive mood.

God made you unique. There is no other you. Have courage to do your thing….well. (a wink and a smile)

There will always be someone saying something thats really about nothing. (shock face) It’s only an opinion. No idle words. No negative thoughts. No doubts. And most of all, no fear! (gritted teeth smile) Roll with it!

Stay positive. Keep writing and believing draft to draft or post to post. That masterpiece will manifest in the proper season. (smile)

Timing is everything. Sometimes, we want (filled in the blank)______________ but the timing is not right. Have faith and believe it will come when we’re ready. But I’m ready now, someone is thinking (smile) it comes when we stop stressing and focusing on it. (shock face)

So keep the faith and believe in yourself and that masterpiece becomes closer to manifestation than you realized. (smile) Can I get a witness? (smile)

Stay blessed my friends and remember to have fun and keep your sense of humor because writers write! (cheesy smile)

As always your thoughts or comments are welcome. (smile)
