Be a best friend. Simple, right? This is hitting home today. I feel as though I don’t have enough time to be the best friend that I should be.
Looks like this will be mindful goal for next year.
Have you been thinking about your goals, and what you need to work on for next year?
No matter what is going on…there is always hope.
Today I am thankful for the gifts of friendship. Those that God has placed in my path when I needed them the most or when they needed me.
Looking back on how God has gifted me with placement of friends, I am truly amazed at His ability to weave His love into me.
Whether they needed me at the time or I needed them…I am really not sure, but God did. He placed exactly who I needed at the right time.
How has God gifted your life? Looking back on your life, can you see His path?
I need this today, and most days.
Don’t wait for one day…enjoy every moment with those you love.
Tell them you love them.
Just because you don’t see the sun rise doesn’t mean it hasn’t.
Have a little faith…believe.
“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
“Faith is as sure as the taste of an apple, the fragrance of a rose, the sound of thunder, the sight of the sun, the feel of a loving touch. Hope is a wish, a longing for something not now possessed, but with the expectation of getting it. Faith adds surety to the expectation of hope.”
“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13 NLT
Whatever you are struggling with…there are these: faith, hope and love. Talk to someone. Be there for someone. Have faith.
Blessings today and always.
Lately I have been struggling with what others say I don’t have. Today I woke up with what I have accomplished. My positivity came back. I am staying in the direction that I feel God has led me on since the beginning. Just because I don’t like what I am hearing, or what others are saying doesn’t mean that God may lead me to stay the course instead.
College has been hard (for me with working full time). Most of the time it is too much work, that it is too hard. I want to walk away –sometimes (okay most of the time). But I come back to “I am not a quitter. I am a finisher!” I need to put blinders on and concentrate on the end goal. Just because I won’t finish college in the typical four years doesn’t mean I won’t finish. A seven-and-a-half year college plan is a goal, right? Semester after semester, just to keep plowing way, one class here, maybe two classes there. Then one day, I will wake up and realize I have a degree. But I won’t get there if I quit.
I won’t get to my weight goal if I keep thinking that eating cheese puffs and Chardonnay for dinner is healthy either. I need to put the green, leafy vegetables in my mouth, drink water, and exercise for the plan to work. Again, the goal of weight loss isn’t easy. My gastric sleeve surgery was a tool to help me lose the weight, not for me to gain it back in a year. I didn’t go through surgery to fail.
Every day is a new opportunity to succeed. I felt deflated yesterday. I cried yesterday. Self pity is not pretty, but we all go through it. Today is a new day. I am planting new seeds.
Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. — Galatians 6:9 ESV
