What are you meant to do?

Wherever your focus is, your vision will be as well.  What you focus your life on will be what motivates you. What is motivating you today? Is your vision clear concerning the things of God and are you paying particular attention to His word and what He is instructing you to do today and again…

When Seasons Change

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.      ~Psalm 33:20-22 We are well into March and I am ready for spring…

God’s Gift and His Call

Romans 11:29 “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable.” We all have a place and a call in God’s heart and in God’s plans. One way for me to know what God’s plans are for me is by paying attention to the gifts and talents He has blessed me with. I also think those…

A Living Prayer

Being known as a living prayer… Sara’s definition of a living prayer: “It is found in the reflection of others when they are touched by you. It would be seen in the joy that others would find contagious, and in the compassion that others would feel in your words and deeds.” Being a living prayer…

When something emotional…

The Real Story

As I prepare for Christmas, one thing that I love doing is going back to Sara’s blog and remember what she wrote…remember her perspective. God’s perspective. I do believe that Sara opened her mind and heart to God so He could teach us through her. I love this post, Sara wrote on “The Real Story.”…

Choose Gratitude…It’s good for your health!

Why is expressing gratitude so hard? Gratitude is a funny thing because many of us know we should express gratitude, but our impulses tend to be what takes over. Impulses like frustration, irritation, impatience, etc. The annoyances that happen in everyday life easily take over our intent to count our blessings. Therefore, we need to…
