Can we name anything that God can’t do?

God bless us, by faith, as we roll with it and meditate on Jeremiah 32:27 – Behold, I am The Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Let thy will be done!

Roll with it! 😜

There is so much stuff going on around us, we just have to roll with it!

Be positive and have faith that God is working all things out, what do we say, roll with it! Right! 😜

There is always something to be thankful for–roll with it!

And if we must, sing a song, that’s roll with it, Ann “afriendforever54” Friend style! 😜

God bless us as we walk by faith and roll with it! 😜

Roll with it, is encouragement by faith, to be who we are in Christ! Shining and loving in spite of stuff around us!

Roll with it, because God loves us unconditionally! 😜

Roll with it, because we can smile and praise God regardless of something or someone! 😜

Roll with it, because if God is for us, who can be against us!

Most of us have a favorite song. The one that speaks to our spirit, makes us wanna dance 😜

Come on, we are among friends here 😜 Some of us need our song to roll with it too!

Roll with it, keeps us balanced and gives us another way to adapt!

To be continued next Wednesday, if The Lord says the same!

God, we thank you for blessing us with ways to enjoy life as we change and keep moving forward and roll with it! 😜

Faith Talk For Today and Everyday

Happy Friday! 😜 This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad! Everyday God wakes us up is a blessing! Everyday, God loves us, regardless! His love has no conditions. 😁 Today is about building our faith and our understanding that change starts with each of us. 😰

20130705-053058.jpg

Let us meditate on Romans 10:17, that says “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. The scriptures above, by faith, can be a start to change how we think of ourself. 😰 We all bring something to the table. We all express and share our experiences differently. Let us respect each others style 😜. God gives each of us different ways to reach each other. 😀

Faith is speaking those things as if they are and being aligned with the will of God. Change and growth is part of our everyday life. Learning to adapt to change requires faith in God. 😀 Without faith, it is impossible to please him. 😨

God bless us as we keep moving forward by faith understanding that change begins with each of us; and we’re learning to love ourselves because God loves us in spite our stumbles. Thank God for his mercy and his grace! 😜

To be continued….

We welcome your thoughts 😜

It’s Roll With It Wednesday!

Praise God, it’s roll with it Wednesday and we’re blessed he woke us up today! 😜
Smile and roll with it is a choice! 😜
Smile and roll with it because sometimes, it is what it is! 😜
Smile and roll with it because the joy of The Lord is our strength! 😜

20130618-204823.jpg

Smile and roll with it because Romans 8:28 tells us “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”.

Have faith that good or bad, right or wrong, God can work it out! 😜 His will be done.

God bless us as we keep moving forward by faith knowing your mercy and grace is sufficient for today! 😀

And if we must sing a song! It does a mind and body good! 😛Bring earplugs! 😜

Speak To The Lies To Renew Our Mind (Part 2)

The renewing of our mind is a process! Each day, we speak life or death into our lives and situations. Each day, we can choose to replace a negative thought with a positive thought. But wait a minute, here is the catch–to replace our thoughts, something has to change. 😰 Change starts with each of us. Change is always hard until we are ready and willing to take responsibility for our part of whatever keeps that negative thought alive. 😰 Which brings us to conflict.

Every relationship that involves people brings stuff–theirs and ours! Let’s face it, we all have a once upon a time or back in the day, blah, blah. We made choices, right, wrong or indifferent. The challenge is owing our part of the choice and allowing God to set us free. 😰 Bad habits are hard to break. God knows what is needed to break each and everyone of us. Ouch. 😩

As we mentioned yesterday, our past and present life experiences shape our memories, thoughts, perceptions and beliefs. Until we can accept each others choices and differences; we can’t be effective witnesses for Christ. It will always come down to love.

God is love. If we say we love Jesus but hate our _________, well change is a process and it may take us longer to get where we need to be! 😨 When we stumble, we can thank God for his mercy and his grace! 😜

No one is perfect, except Jesus. Pain, hurt and guilt, to include, forgiveness can all be released to God for healing. God loves us unconditionally; even when we are not kind and loving. 😰 He just waits until we choose him and the process to change begins again.

Other things we can use to renew our mind is music or paying a good strategy game–with either, the distraction keeps those pesky thoughts away. 😜 Try it, it helps!

God bless us by faith, as we release negative thoughts of the past, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, to renew our minds and set us free to keep moving forward.
