Braver Saturday – Do less with more focus. Do what you must while on the way to where He is taking you. Sometimes you spend a long season cleaning up the messes from past decisions. That’s okay. It’s part of the journey, Jesus is with you. That’s the whole Purpose – that He is with us…as you faithfully take care of issues that just cannot be ignored anymore – those things that niggle at your mind like a simmering pot on the stove – whether legal, mental, emotional, spiritual, physical or financial …over time…as you handle X y z you eventually get to that place of strength and humble beginnings…where you can focus on less and accomplish more. Do less with more. So, don’t be afraid to finish what you started. Look, there really are seasons where you can’t walk away from your past because it’s facing you each morning to remind you to follow up and follow through on what was begun…keep chipping away and trust Him each step of the way. Stay filled up with His presence and His courage as He walks with you….and He will direct you – focusing one day at a time ..it WILL GET YOU THROUGH the darkness and you WILL SEE less problems and more solutions. Don’t give up!! Don’t turn back!!! It’s gonna be okay. Eventually, you will move out of what you do and it will move you from all you know into who you have become and that’s when you see it….those obstacles and those fearful decisions were all part of shaping and molding you into the courageous person you have become… Do less with more focus and over the process of time, you leave what you know to step into who you have become. #blogger #faith #church #kingdom #anxiety #anxietyquotes #mentalhealth #fitnesss #gym #life #bebraver
Fearless Friday- Why don’t you be the light in someone else’s darkness? As believers we justify walking out life alone because Jesus had friends unwilling or unable to stick with Him. We spiritualize loneliness saying our ‘need’ or someone else’s need should only be for Him. Perhaps we should heed His admonition to His disciples to remain awake? Perhaps this is an example of how we can be friends with others. Once someone begged me to be their friend. The intense need this woman had was unbearable. Over time I watched her blossom and bloom through our friendship. She never became dependent on me for her source of happiness. She just needed some light in her darkness so she could find her way out.
In the family of Christ we should be healthy & mature enough to be friends with others. We should not have to beg for relationship with one another. Is it possible we should see the need of isolation as significant as shelter, food, or water? A possible breeding ground for suicide, sickness & bitterness may be lack of relationship. So, why don’t you light up someone else’s darkness? You might gain a lifelong friend. Love, d
Tenacious Tuesday-COME TO ME!! This is the song I played for my sister over and over as she moved to heaven. Today I’m remembering life. Remembering my sister. Thinking of my sisters here on earth. Time with Him.Time with me.
Peace. Rest. Clarity.
Wisdom. Reassurance. Boldness. Love-d
Tenacious Tuesday – What will you do today? I’m pondering this myself. Though I had a plan when I went to bed last night, I awakened with the thought that perhaps….I should rethink it…rethink the whole deal. Wow. Start over? No. But revamp. Rethink. Renovate. These words and action steps come to mind. So, I encourage you today to stop. Think about it. Then, revisit your old plan and read it over with a reNEWed interest to partner with HIM instead of what you have always been doing….
It is a new day. Let’s move from the OLD into the NEW……..
And you and me equals us.
Motivated Monday- tonight I have to do something really hard. At least it is for me. I’ve been dreading it. I’m not filled with dread – I’ve just not looked forward to this day. Every day I came up with another reason to avoid it. But I realize my hesitancy is based on fear not trust and so I am changing my mind even as I write this article. I’m being vague on purpose but the reason I’ve avoided it is because the results of it may be unpleasant…not my fave…but still fear based. I’ve had to face myself. I’m either all in or not all in. In other words, I’m either trusting God with my life or I’m not… So I begin…because …I’m all in.
