Family, Like Branches On A Tree, We Grow in Different Directions, Yet Our Roots Remain As One, Rooted In God And Jesus!

FAMILY - ROOTS

If we are Rooted in God and Jesus we are able to stand the strong winds, and storms of life! God never promised us a “rose garden”. He promised us that He would be there with us to comfort us and we never have to be alone again, unless we want to be. 

My family has shown me that we can go through anything with God and Jesus by our side. God has carried me through abuse, stalking, and divorce. God never left me. I left Him. Then, he gave me the “love of my life” when He thought that I was ready. I had to learn to put God number one no matter what….above my family, my husband, and my children…when I lost all and only had God…I found out that He was all that I ever needed.

Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can be.

I once allowed my very negative family members to pollute the clear beautiful sea of my life. Once I realized what they were doing and saw that they never had anything good to say and were not well adjusted people, I eliminated them from my life and ulcers left me too with that powerful decision.

You have more power than you know. Start using the mind God gave you and keep in your life only positive people who care about you and have goals and something good to say.

This is a wallpaper you can save on your smart phone by left clicking the save image to device option.

Put it on your phone as a reminder that YOU ARE WORTH only associating with good people. If you have to extricate a few sick relatives who like to argue and cause you pain and misery, so be it.

A Spiritual Renewal

There must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes.

You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness–righteous, holy, and true.

So put away all falsehood and “tell your neighbor the truth” because we belong to each other.

And “don’t sin by letting anger gain control over you.”

Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a mighty foothold to the devil.

source: Ephesians 4: 23-27 NLT

Gratitude…is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside.

~*~A.A. Thoughts For The Day~*~
^*^*^*^*^
Gratitude

Another exercise that I practice is to try for a
full inventory of my blessings and then
for a right acceptance of the many gifts that are mine –
both temporal and spiritual. . .
I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart
cannot entertain great conceits.
When brimming with gratitude,
one’s heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love,
the finest emotion that we can ever know.”

Bill. W., March 1962
c.1988 AA Grapevine, The Language of the Heart, p. 271

Thought to Consider . . .

I have learned what a heart full of gratitude feels like.

The Expert In Anything Was Once The Beginner~Someday

THE EXPERT WAS ONCE A BEGINNERSOMEDAY

Someday

I always said Someday I will be happy.

Someday I’ll be more creative.

Someday I will write my story.

Someday I will find someone to love me the way that I need to be loved.

Someday I will start painting whatever I want to on my canvas called “Life”.

Someday I will be able to pay my bills.

Someday. . .

Someday I will make lots of money. 

Someday I will sing with my Dad.

Someday I won’t want to die anymore.

Someday I will figure out what I want to be when I grow up. 

Someday. . .

Someday I will think I’m special and I do have someone unique to offer the world. 

Someday I will believe that I don’t have to be perfect.

Someday I will live life to the fullest.

Accepting life as it comes, changing what I can and accepting what I can’t.

God Loves You

Love of God

Today, Sally, we believe God wants you to know that …God loves you.

Yes, God loves you. Very much. Unconditionally.

Like a mother loves her child, unconditionally. Even as she slaps her baby’s hand to protect from being burnt by a fire, her love infuses her whole being.

So with God. God’s love for you infuses the whole Universe.

THY WILL NOT MINE LORD

Thy Will NOT Mine

“Lord, if it’s not Your will.

Let it slip through my grasp.

And give me the peace not to worry about it.” source: Unknown

I had a job interview today. 

I prayed for faith because I was afraid. I walked out in faith and made the appointment for the interview. 

I have prayed and prayed all week for God to grant me the faith and courage to do whatever I had to, in order to obtain the position, IF it were His will for me.

I have learned through years of “hard knocks” and “misery”, that God’s will was always better for me than mine. 

So, I prayed to God, even though I knew that He already knew what my needs were, for Him to let me get the job, if it were His will. And if were not His will that I would accept the fact that it was not the job for me. He knows my needs. I have been praying for my needs to be fulfilled, so that I would be able to support my family.

“Thy will not mine be done always, Lord.”

“God wants you to decide in advance, trusting him and believing that his will is the best plan for your life.” source: Rick Warren
