Psalm 119:33-40 – HE

Praise The Lord for another day.

33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.
40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

Practice The Pause

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

It isn’t always necessary to achieve great things. Sometimes, just surviving is a great achievement.

Hello friends. (smile) How are you, doing? (wink)

I got a lot of book writing done the last few days with no stress. Praise The Lord. My chores, not so much. (wink)

For those of us returning to the circus, let’s keep the faith to practice the pause while speaking “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”.

Sing a song. Smile. Take a walk. Get a beverage. Praise The Lord until the mood changes. Anything, just keep the faith and practice the pause. (smile)

We’re too blessed to be stressed! (humor)

Blessings as we remember, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me! The rest is irrelevant and let’s put it at the foot of the cross. (smile)

Enjoy your day!

Repeat After Me, I Am…

Repeat after me, I am a masterpiece.  The power of words that we speak about ourself, by faith, will build confidence, as we renew our mind, by continuing to replace negative thoughts will keep us moving forward.  😜

Remember, it’s a process. As we move forward, we must find balance. We must be able to smile or laugh at ourself during those times when things or stuff pop up. 😁 There will be times frustration creeps in, refuse to entertain the negativity. Refuse to give up! Faith, keep the faith!

Celebrate the small victories and praise The Lord for his mercy and his grace and keep moving forward! 😄

God bless us, by faith, as we choose to speak positive and uplifting words to ourselves, as our mind is renewed and we continue to grow in Christ. Let thy will be done.

Comments and thoughts are welcome. 😄
