Acrostic on Making A Difference

What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.
~ Unknown Author ~

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.  Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
~ 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. My thoughts on making a difference.

Sometimes, making a difference comes down to giving and acts of kindness.

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

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Be The Light

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sometimes we don’t say what we feel, not because we don’t want to, but because we don’t know how.
~ Unknown Author ~

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
~ Matthew 5:14-16 ~

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
~ Matthew 6:22 ~

Hello friends. Be the light to those around us. Someone needs hope. Be the light.Someone needs courage. Be the light.

Someone needs a job. Be the light.

A Renewed Mind

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

A renewed mind is good for the soul. It’s faith that matures belief, perspective, and perception. It’s being spirit led. It’s silencing the psst of yesterday. It’s the blessing of releasing challenging situations to God. It’s spiritual and emotional wholeness to live and love abundantly.
~ Ann V. Friend ~

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
~ Romans 12:2 ~

IWSG – Write

20140107-233736.jpg
Sometimes, we doubt our ability to write. More often than not, it starts from a thought or comment made that we internalize. Things, we entertain in our minds, can drive us nuts or worst, block our writing creativity.

20140107-233915.jpg

Recently, this has happened to me. My thoughts were all over the place! To be honest, it’s so easy to put pressure on ourselves to think we have do everything in one day. Sometimes, we have to ask ourself, do I have to blog everyday? Just keeping up with emails and comments can bring a challenge. Add in visiting all the blogs, we follow…thus doubting thoughts. I unplugged from all electronic devices for a few day just to get a handle on things and stuff in my life!

When my thoughts were all over the place, I got a little frustrated so I wrote down every silly thought. Then I just read them over and started revising the negative statements into positive statements. Now I had positive stuff to write from a different perspective. I encourage you to try it. (smile)

Balance, finding balance is necessary and as Alex says “have fun” (smile) At least, once a week, lighten up and laugh and have fun doing something that is not writing. (smile)

After a break, with a fresh mind, words will flow!

I have faith, someday, we’ll all write a masterpiece! (smile)

Something to Ponder 3

Those pesky thoughts. Romans 12:2 tells us “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

By faith, let us replace thoughts that keep us stuck! Replacing one thought at a time work will result in victory and a renewed mind! Praise The Lord.

God bless us, by faith today, as we meditate on Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Repeat After Me, I Am….

Replacing negative thoughts, about ourselves, with positive thoughts will require practice in the renewal of our mind! 😀

We believe what we tell ourselves. Many times, we are our own worst critic. 😰 Today, repeat after me, I am (fill in the blank)! 😀

God bless us, by faith, as we renew our mind with positive thoughts about ourself. Let thy will be done. 😀

Sometimes We Have To Dig Deep

Overwhelming thoughts are different for each of us.
