Motivation For Monday

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

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

Monday’s are tough for me. Ever need motivation on Monday’s, I sure do.

Motivation is different for everyone. Motivation becomes interesting when viewed from another perspective.

For me, the ten most powerful and motivating words are: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Especially when negative thoughts remind of past Monday’s.

Motivation builds a better attitude when Monday’s come.

What motivates you? By faith, let’s have a great Monday. (wink)

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

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

IWSG July 5th – One Valuable Lesson Learned


Whatever may be our natural talents, the art of writing is not acquired all at once.
~Jean-Jacques Rousseau ~

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

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink) Yay, its the first Wednesday of the month where we share…

Welcome Alex and July IWSG Co-hosts: Tamara Narayan, Pat Hatt, Patricia Lynne, Juneta Key and Doreen McGettigan.

IWSG Day Question:  What is one valuable lesson you’ve learned since you started writing?

I love the quote above. Writing has been an ebb and flow learning experience. I believe we learn by repetition. I believe encouragement is the greatest blessing we can give one another.

I’ve learned many things the last four years as a writer.  Still struggle with the rules.  Bygones.

I’m blessed to be a part of two awesome and established writer groups.  Both groups have published authors.  

I’ve grown in my creative writing ability. (wink) Praise The Lord.

The one valuable lesson I’ve learned is confidence in my own writing style. I stumbled into finding my writer’s voice.

Thank you, friends, for the encouragement, it kept me from the “q” word. Bygones. (wink)

So the plan is to keep writing and moving forward until my book is finished because I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith. Enjoy the rest of your week.

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 Encouragement


A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
~ Unknown Author ~

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

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome IWSG March co-hosts. Encouragement is a powerful motivator. Encouragement to others, as well as, to ourself is a beautiful thing.

Keeping the faith while speaking I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me motivates, moves mountains and brings inner strength to try and try again.

Keep writing, keep working toward that dream, because, say it out loud, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Praise The Lord.

Blessings my friends, be encouraged and keep the faith!

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts as we’re blessed with another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well in your world. (wink)

This week I celebrate all the ways to have faith to believe I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Praise The Lord.

Whether we crawl or walk through challenges, faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, becomes powerful when we realize faith endures because challenges are temporary.

Like the seasons of life, challenges teach, challenges change and most of all, challenges display inner strength.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

It’s a spiritual thing.
It’s the power of the tongue.
It’s belief in ability.
It’s a choice.

Faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me knows a relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ gives life. A beacon of light that He lives within.

Faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me understands the power of daily grace, even when we stumble.

Faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, speaks to individual testimonies of His unconditional love.

Faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, _____________________, (fill in the blank).

Faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me, brings victory and contentment because life can change in an instant.

Blessings my friends, as we remember and keep the faith in I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Something To Do



The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.
~ Anonymous ~

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

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to my seventh time participating in BlogHer’s National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo).

I have yet to complete a whole month. (shock face) Close, but no cigar.

By faith, victory is this month. (smile) Thank you Lord.

So buckle up friends, as I have fun, using Monday through Friday writing prompts. Psst, some may be modified. (grin) Saturday and Sunday are open topics.

Wahoo, something to do. (wink)

The theme this month is Know. Thank God, I know stuff. (smile)

Need cheerleaders, on the side, as I write this race and cross the finish line. Wahoo, something to do.

Blessings friends to enjoy your weekend and the beautiful weather.

Your thoughts are welcome. (smile)
