Taking time to reflect…

Recently, I celebrated another birthday. The older that I become, I take a moment to reflect on the past year. Several thoughts came to my mind. I had some sad times, where I experienced the lost of some loved ones. I also had some good times, where some of my dreams and goals were accomplished. I did a self inventory of myself. I thought about my strengths and weaknesses and what I could do to become a better person and inspire others to do the same. As I continue on this journey called life, I pause a minute, to thank God for all of his blessings that he bestows upon us daily. The best is yet to come and I’m looking forward to the future. May God bless you all.

Believe

I have a small porcelain rock that is shaped like a heart and it has the word believe written on it. I had a child see it and ask me, what is this? I told them it’s a heart and it has the word believe on it. The child asked, what do you have it for? I replied, “sometimes if I am feeling down or if I have a bad day, I can look at it as a reminder to believe that a better day is coming and not get caught up in my current circumstances because they are temporary. So the thought for today is keep believing, have faith and no matter what, always remember Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ…”.

Feeling thankful….

“To God be the glory”

Ephesians 3:20

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

I woke up this morning and I was thinking back over my life. I am thankful that God has blessed me and others and I know He is there with me regardless of the circumstance or situation. I have to keep the faith and trust Him because He has never failed me yet. He keeps proving Himself through the Word and others have shared their testimonies. God is awesome!

No matter what, keep doing good…

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

I pray God gives you strength on today and always. So many things can happen in life. If we look at all of the negative, it is easy to loose focus. Keep doing good, studying the bible and praying to God for strength. Stay focused on Him and He will direct your path and in God’s timing, not ours, you will be rewarded.
