“Show courage. People need to see what it looks like. Show it. Then feel it.” – Beth Moore
“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)
I need to be more aware of this. I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did. Can I see if I showed courage? Not really. Did others see it in me? I hope so. I pray so.
I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis. That is my goal. No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.
Blessings and love.
Well…I voted. Are you happy with the results?
Yesterday afternoon I became deflated. I am 95 percent of the time a happy, encouraging person. I try to be that way with others, looking to the glass half full, to be positive. God has a plan, and I work that plan. I might not always agree with that plan, but I hang in there whatever the case might be.
And, I believe that He does have a plan. I just feel flat. That everything that I have worked for means nothing without a degree (work). Of course, where I work is a state college, and that degree matters, and I so know that! Don’t get me wrong. It takes courage to say this –I am sad.
I have a technical degree from (an accredited school) thirty years ago that won’t transfer. Again, that is okay. My past brought me here, and I am thankful of my path for it has made me who I am. But I am feeling worthless today.
I will be fine. I will get through this. There are much worse things out there, and we are fine!! I am not stating any of this for pity, or attention. I am stating this for reality. Because not everyday is bright and shiny. I treasure every moment, and love my struggles (even algebra). Oh, and I am still taking classes. I will get that degree – it may take me a while – but I will get it.
So, no pity. Just needed to vent. And this too shall pass.
