Have you ever been somewhere and realized that you have stayed to long? Got that awkward feeling that you just did not belong in that space anymore? It’s a weird space to be in and when you feel that way, when you have overstayed your welcome, you have to to figure out the best way to move on….
2015 by and large has been a great year, but it can’t hold a candle to what I know 2016 is gonna be! Sometimes you just have to P.U.S.H. your way through and that is just what I plan to do!
We are just a sum of our experiences and how we perceive them. At some point in each of our lives we need to be poured into, but we also should be pouring. Take the time time give someone a chance you needed by building relationship, and here is why.
2016 is a little over two weeks away. If you haven’t started planning for it now you can with a FREE tool to help you! Click the link to see how setting goals worked for me in 2015 and why I will be doing it again.
Life will have you feeling like you are in the middle of your own personal hell week, being hazed by the devil. It is in these times that you need encouragement the most, so here is a little for you.
What if we each as individuals think about our actions and the effects of them on others? What if we started to change them accordingly? …..how much of a movement could be had by it? We have to do something and maybe we need to work on some “in-house” business before we can see some change outside the house. I’m just asking, what if?
Today, the hubs and I are celebrating four years of marriage. We are not perfect (or even trying to be), we are not taking the good days for granted, and we are not believing that we are doing any of this through our own strength and abilities. What we are doing, consciously everyday, is choosing our marriage.
I heard things like, “don’t tell him, you can just handle it” and “you better fix it” and even “you’re just gonna be another statistic”. It was never a thing on my agenda, it was never a desire of mine,I never actually wanted to be a parent. But God has called me to this, to raise these kids and allow him to get the glory when this is all said and done.
I had the honor and blessing of sitting down with one of my blogger beau’s for lunch the other day. It was so random, but so …. Special. Yet another God orchestrated situation. We sat and talked like we knew each other all our lives; real life stuff; matters of the heart; struggles in our universes; stuff you don’t just lay out on the table, yet it was our first time meeting. Everything that my friend shared with me on that day, I took to the altar and prayed a sincere prayer for her. What good are we to each other if we can’t intercede in prayer for each other when we don’t know how or what to pray for ourselves.
Last year, I did the word of the year exercise and was feeling really good about it. I did the worksheet, picked my word and then….forgot about it! But much to my surprise, I actually made great strides with my word when I was reminded to go back and take a look at it. I think its a great tool and here’s why.
Many friends I know have heard of the saying, “God always turns something bad into good” which you can find within the Bible story of Joseph and his brothers. In this post is a reflection of how God would turn the ugliness of my past, the bad things in my life into something good.
