Words of Wisdom ……

A quality decision is not one you make at the height of emotion. It’s easy to start a diet when you’re full.

Your mind is the battlefield; set your mind and keep it set. Once you make your mind up, you can do anything God tells you to do.

You can choose your thinking but you need to choose carefully. What you think is what you will become.

Fear can’t be wished away or hoped away. It must be confronted and dealt with through God’s Word.

It’s amazing what happens when you just won’t give up!

You can find joy in the middle of your mess—you just have to decide to. It’s up to you to determine what you will enjoy.

Do what’s right! Don’t worry about what everybody else is doing

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” –Matthew 11:28

Keep your mind going in the right direction, and your life will catch up with it.

Complication produces frustration, which produces anger, which ultimately produces a loss of joy.

In God, there is always a place of new beginnings. It is never too late to begin again!

Listen to your heart and be bold enough to follow it instead of doing what other people want you to do. -Joyce

Knowing who you are in Christ leads you to peace, and peace always produces joy in your life.





Encouragement …

I don’t like it when the people I love most are hurting and let’s face it, I haven’t been a ball of sunshine myself lately but I try to put the things I’m going through aside to be there for the ones I love. I just wanted to post some words of encouragement that I have found since I truly do not have my own words right now. My encouragement has been prayer and lots of it!
