Like or Love or Maybe Both

You were created in God’s likeness. Everything that God created was good. Don’t demote yourself with bad feelings or negative thought. I believe that there is goodness in all of us. Think and say good things about yourself. Open up your mouth and give it a try. Even if other people don’t see it, what matters is what God see. Don’t live to prove yourself to other people. Put away the notion that you are not supposed to have big and the best. God is good! He created you to enjoy his goodness and there is not a specific time you have to wait and do it and there’s not a specific age either. Goodness is in your heart. Joy is in your spirit. You can enjoy both at anytime. It’s a good thing to enjoy the goodness of God because that’s what he wants for you. Even in chaos seek out God’s goodness. And no matter how you see it or anyone else may see it, what he created in you Was Already first loved and liked by him. No matter how many likes or loves you get. Lol. Be blessed my friends.

What Limit?

Man chooses to limit man but God chose to give you freedom. There is no limit with how you can be blessed or be a blessing to someone else in words or deed. With your spiritual gifts don’t choose to hold people back make the good choice as we are to follow our good shepherd and help one another.

Do it yourself: A Fall Wreath Exploration

I was ever so inspired by my winter citrus Christmas cards this year to create my very own orange berry fall-like wreath. Now I get to enjoy both pleasures of orange citrus in the fall and winter season! I normally have a traditional pumpkin-leave autumn wreath each year but was all too happy to follow in the footsteps of my all-inspired charm of an idea. If you enjoy florals like me, do-it-yourself crafts or even just desire to make your own unique masterpiece, like say, a wreath. You will enjoy this video.

With this green thistle berry wreath pinned with a combination of autumn sorts and vague hues of fall, I can already tell this will be one of my favorites, maybe yours to.

Join me if you please. Grab your wreath and accessories and take a momentary walk with me as I embark on creating a fall orange berry wreath. You can do it now or anytime!

The Courage to Wait

Be of good courage.

Psalms 27:14


Change.

I can always depend on nature to do just what it’s expected to do. Change. Soon everything will grow quiet. It will become still but only for a little while. Only for enough time to hear the next set of directions. Do you know which way you are going? Nature seems to become silent as though their’s an expectation to receive the next set of orders. Even the wind has an order in the direction that it blows. Leaves, in our eyes, they rest everywhere but for something or for some creature they land exactly where they are meant to be. They rustle over to a little corner of space, gathering and piling higher. At any rate, we all have our instructions. Do you choose to abide by them?

Abide.

You may be asking yourself, “what are our instructions?” The instructions are to abide in Christ. You can do that with W.A.T. Worship. Allegiance (submission). Thankfulness.

It’s a year later that I now see why the Lord spoke to me and told me to wait, to be still. I am reaping the benefits of that obedience. I didn’t abide in him the first time but the next chance I received, I did. Abiding in God is not a one time thing. I learned that it is a constant practice. I worshipped in my wait. I submitted myself to his will in my wait. I gave thanks in my wait and not just for myself but for others. Do you find yourself always thinking of others by expressing a kindness toward them? It may not seem rewarding for you but just as you act on what’s in your heart, you are also placed in God’s heart for him not to forget about you. Don’t feel used for always thinking of others and feel as though it’s not reciprocated. Your needs will still be met just because you chose to stay faithful with giving.

Submitting yourself to the will of God will cause you to want to change to make improvements to yourself. Sometimes that can take a little sorting out. You need to figure yourself out and that it completely okay.

When you recognize that you need to make a correction in your life, are you humbled enough to make the change? Humility has a lot to do with abiding in God. His words say Abide in me as I also abide in you. God cannot abide in ego. He wants your full attention, allegiance, and praise. He wants it all in his name. He deserves it all and it’s less than we can give.

Strength

Humility comes at a price. Sometimes that price is falling so that you can rise back up again stronger, healthier, and wiser. Are you courageous enough to accept defeat so that you can truly become a conquerer? You’ll find that in your climb from the valley to the mountain top you’ve always had what you needed. The key to your strength is to be able to surrender to “I am”.

Have the courage to stand strong and wait. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he will strengthen your heart. What expectation do you have for God to fulfill in your life? W.A.T. are you going to do about it? Here’s a clue. Worship. Show Allegiance (submission). (give) Thanks.
