“My reading this morning was out of 2 Corinthians 5.  Reminds us to be compelled by the love of Christ.  May we love someone today that we don’t even like.”  Beth Moore

Simple enough…right?

Blessings.

Sunday Thought

“Joshua said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the LORD will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.”  Joshua 10:25 NIV

I have been discouraged with myself this past week.  So much so that people actually see that something is wrong, that I am upset.  I am not dealing well with things at work.  Not that my work has changed, but the work I am doing.  I am the type of person who wants my work to be perfect.  It has to done perfectly.  I fight with myself on this constantly.

Logically,  I know that I am not perfect, nor the work I do is perfect.  I know this, but it doesn’t change the fact that I want it to be.  My enemies are my inside voices.  Those that tell me I am not good enough.  That I can’t do it all.  (Again, I know that I can’t but some days are worse than others.)  My self worth has been low lately.

I over commit to things in January.  I am overwhelmed, although not busy.  I am anxious with silly things.  I want to be calm in spirit, to encourage and support those around me.  One evening this past week, I came home and just cried.  I tell others that when they do that it is a release.  Your body can’t hold in everything anymore and needs to let things go.  I feel week, and uncertain when it happens to me.

So…

“I am with you and for you.  You face nothing alone–nothing! when you feel anxious, know that you are focusing on the visible world and leaving Me out of the picture.  The remedy is simple:  Fix your eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen.  Verbalize your trust in Me, the Living One who sees you always.  I will get you safely through this day and all your days.  But you can find Me only in the present.  Each day is a precious gift from My Father.  How ridiculous to grasp for future gifts when today’s is set before you! Receive today’s gift gratefully, unwrapping it tenderly and delving into its depths.  As you savor this gift, you find Me.” – Romans 8:31; 2 Corinthians 4:18; Genesis 16:13-14 AMP —Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young

Again, making some changes.  Letting go.  Forgiving myself and knowing that I don’t have to do everything.

I am enough.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

“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.

This was being shared on Facebook, so I decided to share it as well.

Some comments that have been made are:

We are all sinners.

This is so true.

Showing love to all is difficult especially if you have been hurt or wronged by someone.

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no commandment greater than these.”  -Mark 12:29-31

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

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?

Blessings.

I have always been a believer in karma, or what goes around comes around mentality.  You reap what you sow.  Be kind, show love.  It’s pretty easy when you think about it.

“If we learn how to give of ourselves, to forgive others, and to live with thanksgiving, we need not seek happiness–it will seek us.” -unknown

Feeling extremely thankful for my family and friends today.

Blessings.
