I believe that learning how to be intentionally grateful in good times helps us better prepare for the rocky waters of life when they come.
I suspect that we might be so focused on the rules in one area of our lives, that we’re missing out on something greater being done.
God is graciously pointing out to me that trusting him is the posture that I should live in.
I was nominated for an award last year and I did nothing with it, so, I wanted to be sure that I responded to this one and followed through… but then I did nothing, yet again. I got caught up with life and let this post sit as a draft for almost 2 months. So, here we go! Better late than never, right?
When things seem bad or you begin to revert back to old behaviors, know that you can make a different choice. Make the decision to change your mind and continue to pursue God.
If you see something in someone else, even if it is buried deep within them, I encourage you to call it out today.
There’s a time for giving advice.
There’s also a time for being present.
And it’s our job to know what time it is and respond accordingly.
No matter what you’re seeking, searching after, or longing for know that God is seeking you. You’re the one that he leaves the ninety-nine for.
Do the next right thing. No matter how deep you are in any hole, problem, or circumstance, make a move today.
I think in mainstream society we’ve gotten it wrong. While I will always love those characters who struggle to express themselves, I think we need more people on the big screen, in books, and in our lives who are willing to be truly strong.
