It Is Well

Is it “Well” with your soul? Sunday afternoon my mom called me and there was a tragic accident in Guyana that included extended family being taken from this earth far too soon! It was shocking, it was devastating and as the details poured in—it was gruesome! Later as I processed the incident, questions rolled through my mind about what those dear ones must’ve experienced or what were their thoughts or did they sense something was off that day? Did they meet previous family members in heaven? Who greeted them at the pearly gates? But what about those that are left to find peace here in on earth? What about those that are still processing trying to figure out the whys in a world that isn’t always fair?
We may never understand why things happen the way it does in this world, but one thing that we can rely on and that is God is in control! 

To all my family that I can’t give a hug to today but is grieving, questioning, needs His peace, I encourage you to trust the simple fact—God is in control! It is well! Love you💞

**********************************************

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

Overcomer

It’s Saturday! Went to bed dreaming of sleeping in and resting today—not a chance! My youngest woke up coughing and if you follow my blogs you already know when this happens somehow it can easily turn into an ordeal if it goes to her lungs. Of course we have already started the necessary precautions but my heart is always overwhelmed when any of our kids aren’t 100%! Definitely not a foreign feeling to most moms, you all know how what I’m talking about.
But whatever you are facing today—maybe it is a sick child; maybe it’s finances; your marriage; issues at work—did you realize that You are Already equipped to Overcome it? Doesn’t that alleviate the stress, the worry?

We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ! (Romans 8:37)

Whatever you are facing in this day—you already are equipped to overcome it! 💞

Rest

I needed this today! These past few weeks have been one thing or another. From one sick kid to the next, schedule adjustments, lack of sleep, being pulled in very direction possible, getting up and doing it all over again–I’m exhausted! 

Can anyone relate? 

I need rest! It’s assuring to me in this moment while I even share this with you all–there’s a way to find that rest that I do seek! ❤️

Don’t leave Him out…

Fighting too hard to reach a goal? Plans aren’t quite coming together?           You are being hit with one bad news after another?                                                        More frustrated than ever because things won’t come together just right at home or work or even in your marriage? 

Don’t leave Him out–with God all things are possible! He will always make a way where there seems to be no way! Hold on tight to whose you are and watch things shift!💜💜

Speak Life

What are you starting out your day saying to yourself? How does your inner dialogue affect your day, your choices, your spirit?

Proverbs 18:21–Death and Life are in the tongue, those that love it shall eat the fruit of it.
Speak good over you and your day today!💞

How Grateful Are You?

Let’s count our blessings? What are you most grateful for? Do you know that the more grateful you are the happier you are? Focus on the negative and it’s simple–you feel sad/tired/drained! 

So count your blessings–name them one by one! Write them down; say it outloud–and you will see how good the Lord has been to you! 

I will start–I am grateful for my family, I’m grateful for a husband that supports me and encourages me to be the very best version of me; I’m grateful for my three little girls that we were blessed with; I’m grateful for the opportunities I get to minister and encourage other people;  I am grateful that God is the center of my family’s life and He is leading our way! 

I know I can keep going on and on…but it’s really quite easy–just start small and you will see the day will get brighter as you focus on the goodness in your life! 

Now your turn…

One day at a Time

I don’t know about you BUT choosing to walk through one day at a time is enough for me! I have enough in ONE day to keep me busy–when tomorrow comes with its challenges or not–Lord give me strength for that day! 💞

His Masterpeice

We all admire the beautiful skies whether it be a sunrise that illuminates the beginning to a new day or a majestic sunset that paints the sky with hues of orange, yellow or reds! But reading this passage of scripture this morning, how many of us admires His true masterpiece? 

We are God’s masterpiece, His handiwork, created in His image and called with a purpose!

Rejoice!

So up bright and early this morning!!!

Last night, Dan and I organized “us.” I set everything out: made the girls lunches, they set out their uniforms, I knew exactly what I had to wear, book bags perfectly placed, Dan and I already planned for who was dropping off which girl, got our calendar up and organized for the month–I even had time to sit and just be! I was ready for today!!!

Then–the littlest decided to wake up and come in to our room this morning. Boom a change in the set schedule! Here we go–15 minutes before the alarm clock goes off— my feet hit the ground and it’s time to choose  how my day was going to play out. From the tears of crying about her socks, to brushing her teeth–I have to say outloud in my head today, “I will rejoice in this day!”  

It may not be exactly what we planned and our schedules definitely get out of whack sometimes but choose to rejoice! Let’s be honest guys, this morning could have definitely gone a very different way of me panicking, yelling, rushing down the road but by simply choosing to rejoice in this day and choosing peace, I even found time to write this blog to encourage others. Make it a great day friends–Rejoice!

Just Pray…

Doesn’t matter what this life throws at you just remember Who is on your side. 

“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
