BE THANKFUL FOR THE TROUBLES YOU DON’T HAVE

“Trouble follows me where ever I go.” “If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all.” “It’s like a dark cloud follows me wherever I go.” Have you ever made any of the above statements? I have and yes “trouble follows me where ever I am.” Not really, just joking. But I have had my […]

CHILDLIKE WONDER

I love life. I enjoy looking at God’s wonderful and beautiful handiwork. I like walking by oceans, lakes, and rivers – enjoying the beauty of Jehovah’s creation. I gaze in amazement and wonder at the works of His hands – how the ocean’s waves stop at a certain point; how the billows seem to have […]

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE FOR THE SOUL

Have you ever laughed so hard tears paraded down your cheeks? Or worse, You cackled so vigorously you lost slight control of your bladder? How did you feel after that hearty, belly laugh? I bet you’re smiling now when you think of the times you let your inhibitions go and just laughed with family or […]

EXHALE AND TAKE A BREAK

A spirit of frustration attacked me this morning. I attempted to sign onto my blog site and kept getting a message that ‘cookies’ needed to be allowed in order for me to access the site. I messed around for over an hour on google chrome and the web site trying to rectify the problem. I’d […]

LET GO AND LET GOD…

Thinking about surrendering this morning. I surrender all. I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all. It’s easy to sing these verses but more difficult to do what I sing. Our mind and spirit wants to surrender all but this flesh fights all the way. It is contrary, selfish, self-willed, greedy, and stubborn; just to name […]

YES, GOD SETS BOUNDARIES

“Should you not fear me?” declares the Lord. “Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.”……………………………………………………………….Jeremiah 5:22 (NIV) I was astounded at a face book post that showed the […]

YOU ARE REDEEMED

Do you wake up some mornings with thoughts filled with regrets? You attempt to pray. You try to focus on other things. You engage in reading, cleaning, meditating, but the thoughts keep creeping into your consciousness – you should have done better with your children; you could have been a better wife; you should be […]

ROSES AND CHOCOLATES

When I was dating, many years ago, I’d get upset when my boyfriend forgot to buy me chocolates or flowers on Valentines’ day or Sweetest day. My friends bragged about the jewelry, candy, and flowers they got on those holidays which led me to have a lengthy discussion with my man. Most of you will […]

USING EVERY SECOND TO THE FULLEST

“Teach us to number our days; that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  __________________________Psalm 90:12 (NIV) You take a personal day or a mental health day off. You sleep in until 11:00 a.m. You pray, read the Bible, stretch, and finally get out of bed, shower, brush teeth, and eat breakfast – by now […]

BUT I DON’T WANT TO DO IT…

Last week I made a statement to my work associate not realizing the intercom was on. It wasn’t anything ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ but was supposed to be a dialogue between me and my colleague. I said, “They need to…” as I hung up the phone. My associate rushed back into the office, breathing fast, “They […]
