Roll With It Wednesday

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:19 ~

Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip. ~Will Rogers~

Hello friends. (smile) It’s roll with it Wednesday with a little humor. (wink) My message is short and sweet today. (smile) Roll with it!

Roll with it is similar to careless and letting it go. (smile)

Say it with me, roll with it! (smile)

Today, I have to stand and mediate on Philippians 4:19 as I roll with it. My dental work resumes this afternoon. (shock face) Bottom teeth this round.

Praise The Lord, He delivered me from fear of the dentist. I just have angst over those needles! Ugh. Roll with it!

Please join me, in prayer agreement, by faith that God will provide calmness to endure the needles. (nervous smile) I humbly thank you in advance! Praise The Lord.

Blessings my friends, by faith, as we roll with it today! (big smile)

May God Give You…

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:19 ~

Hello friends, by faith, may God give us everything we need to get through today. (smile)

What a beautiful illustration….

Faith in Him grows when we understand 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. He will use anything to produce more spiritual fruit to help us grow.

I can tell you from experience, many times, I’ve asked for double grace to help me walk through challenging situations, to include, X, Y and Z. (shock face) I say, Lord, grace, your daughter needs a bit more grace, a double portion please, and Lord, a tad bit of mercy. Praise The Lord. (smile)

Challenging times or X, Y and Z become easier when we give it to Him. At the end of the day, we’re stronger in faith as He helps us walk through.

Blessings and enjoy your day! (smile)

Grace

Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

The time change has me off schedule. (smile) It’s another Monday, let’s have faith and stand on Philippians 4:19! Be positive. Be adaptable. Be strong. Be fruitful. Be encouraged for blessings.

Maintaining our focus keeps things and stuff, and x, y and z in perspective. (smile) Life is too short to allow angst to ruin our day. Yup, I finally see how distractions all play a part toward losing focus of the bigger picture. (shock face)

It takes two. When that thing or x, y, or z, comes, choose to smile and say nothing or calmly breathe to assemble thoughts and let grace get us through it. Calmly breathe and pray to bridle the tongue, when pressed. (smile)

Smile That Button Doesn’t Work Anymore

Most of us have a button. You know, the button that gets pushed when something or somebody _________; or traffic jam, raining and walking with no umbrella, watching favorite tv show and the power goes off; somebody just has to tell you something and 30 minutes later, you’re still listening. Come on, my friends, let’s get real. (shock face) Until we surrender to the Holy Spirit, the mask we wear starts to crack thus the button. Ain’t life grand! (smile)

As we continue, to change and grow, in spiritual maturity, we start to understand how the Word of God ties to walking through life challenges.

20130529-234325.jpg

The bible is full of scriptures to apply to life challenges. For example, in Philippians 4:11-13, Paul states “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”.

By faith, we’re learning to be content. By faith, we’re learning to live with little and with much. Painful sometimes and we praise The Lord! 🙂 We’re learning, we can only do all things through Christ. We’re understanding Philippians 4:19 that states “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”.

So day to day, we can rely on God supplying what we need as we walk through life regardless of the circumstances. And depending on the many circumstances that life can throw at us, let us praise God, for the victory that would give us acquired experience with this scripture, as well as, 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.

As we grow spiritually, and increase our prayer life, our fruit becomes evident when we can smile when something or someone pushes the button and there is no reaction. We can smile because the button doesn’t work anymore! How about that.  (smile)  God bless you and keep moving forward!

As always, feel free to share your thoughts about your button. (smile)
