Celebrate So What….It’s Liberating!


Some will, some don’t, so what!
~ American Proverb ~

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
~ Romans 8:31 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well. This week, I celebrate “so what” because it’s liberating.   “So what” helped my sense of humor remember that laughter is good for the heart.  (wink)   Praise The Lord.

The power of words and how we’re creative in using them is liberating.

“So what” is my updated metaphor of hashtag # careless, casting burdens, frustrations, everything to The Lord. (smile)

Things become too heavy for us to carry. 

“So what” is a attitude of faith that regardless of the many challenges, changes beyond our comfort level, if God be for us, who can be against us?

Whatever it is, we’re in good hands, equipped to walk through it, baby step through it, or my personal favorite–crawl through it.

“So what” when we stumble, thank God for his grace.

“So what”  we require glasses when we’re not sleeping, thank God,  we can see.

“So what” when the little darlings start strife, thank God, we can smile and walk away.

“So what” is quite liberating when we rise above anything.   Thank God, we’re more than conquerors. 

With all the things life situations can throw at us, “so what” we’re still standing, sitting or squatting strong.  (wink)

Abundant blessings, my friends to enjoy your day and weekend, because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Survived

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? ~ Romans 8:31 ~

Wahoo, TGIF friends! (smile) How was your week? This week was brutal. I thank God for His mercy and His grace that I survived. (smile)

We survive every single time when we keep the faith that God will walk us through.

We survive every single time when we choose to let go of anything weighting us down.

We survive every single time when we speak God’s Word in times of distress.

We survive every single time when we stay positive and focus on the current moment.

We survive every single time when we realize that things and stuff and/or X, Y and Z, play a part in God’s plan for our continued growth. (shock face)

We survive every single time when we roll with it because it is, what it is. (smile)

We survive every single time when we can smile to change our mood and keep our sense of humor. (cheesy smile)

We survive every single time when we keep an attitude of thankfulness.

We survive every single time when we remember the power of 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. (smile)

Blessings, my friends, we survived the week! (smile)

Self

Self – the essential person distinct from all other persons in identity. ~Merriam Webster’s Dictionary~

Self is the NaBloPoMo theme for March. This is where I share more about myself and have fun in the process. (shock face) It’s pretty much what I’ve been doing the past few months without the fun part. (smile)

I come here to encourage others to keep the faith and keep moving forward. (smile) It’s a beautiful thing when you are comfortable with yourself! When you have the courage to be you! (smile)

My courage and strength comes from above. Glory to God! When you know who you are, you don’t have to tell anyone, anything, because actions speak louder than words. (gritted teeth smile)

As displayed in the acrostic, life is knowing and being secure in yourself because Romans 8:31 says What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Be blessed and stand on Romans 8:31! Stay tuned for more self encouragement! (smile) Thoughts are always welcomed.
