“Good News”

Celebrating a man of great courage and wisdom today! His words of wisdom from so long ago ring truer than true today, tomorrow, and forever. Oh to have the same courage!!!!!
Every year I spend time choosing a word of the year that I feel like God has put on my heart. Areas in my life that I need to work on or pay more attention to. Then I find a verse that goes with that word and what I feel God is calling me to in the new year. For 2020 I felt God prompt me to chose the word “commit”. As I meditated on that word and read in my Bible, God led me to Proverbs 16:3. I felt the Lord telling me I needed to make sure that He was a part of everything thing in my life (as it should be anyway). If I were honest I would say I had become guilty of compartmentalizing my life. My focus this year is to commit every thing I do to the Lord……from my family and friends, to my business, to decisions whether big or small…….whatever I do! May God bless you in 2020!
When I think of the the faith that both Elizabeth and Mary had it gives me hope when I face difficult times. God knows the things I do not and he is a good, good, Father and that gives me hope.
Sometimes we make mistakes and don’t feel like we can pick ourselves back up and start over. This is true in all aspects of life. This verse is taken from the book of Ezra. The context is the Israelites had disobeyed God and Ezra was distraught because of God’s anger with them. These were word spoken to Ezra by one of the Israelites to encourage him to do what was necessary to get back in God’s favor. These are words that can encourage us as well when we feel like we don’t have the strength to pick ourselves up and get back at it. Find courage in these words. You are courageous and your are supported.
My sister posted this a few days ago and I thought to myself that this is so true. To many times we begin our day with thoughts of being tired, sad, depressed, and anxious. As you approach Thanksgiving Day this year take time when you first get up to write down 3 things your are thankful for. Let’s focus on being happy! Here’s 3 of mine!
1. I am thankful for my family and friends!
2. I am thankful for the ability to share positive messages with you!
3. I am thankful for my health.
God gives us the ability to face anything without fear. He is always with us! God bless you all and have a wonderful week!
This verse is so true and so comforting especially when you face extremely tough and frightening situations. God is faithful to listen and answer when you go to him in prayer. There is a peace that only He can give. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I send this verse out to all my friends, clients, and readers who are currently fighting Breast Cancer as well as those who have fought and are survivors. May this scripture bring you peace and comfort.
Sometimes things don’t always go as we plan. What we see as hard is sometimes God preparing us for greater things. We don’t always see the challenge as an opportunity. Change your perspective and see what God can do.

Keep Trying!

How do you look at what seems to be impossible?
As you begin your week my prayer is that you commit whatever you are aspiring to do to the Lord. May be bless you this week!
As our accountability challenge begins this week I thought I’d share a little word about being accountable. I love this thought. Being accountable allows us to take charge of our circumstances! Make today the day you start being accountable.
The Spirit of God gives us the strength, power, love, and discipline to get through each day.
Love this scripture from the Bible and the pic dailyverses.net made of it! Physical training is important but it’s not the most important. Your relationship with God is.
Remember you have God given strength and dignity. You may face challenges but with God on your side there is no reason to have fear.
Today we celebrated the life of a great man that ended way to short. The service was beautiful and was a reminder that good friendships are so important for our souls. Make sure you tell your friends how much you love them.
As you enter the week of Valentine’s Day, this is a good reminder of what love really is. It’s something to be shared with everyone.
