                   – Two Special Sayings –

Do you have a few words or a saying you like to use? Maybe they are ones that either you created yourself or got else where. I know I do. For many years, these two have been my favorites: God knows what He’s doing and God’s Timing is Perfect.

I use these off and on, to fit into this and that, here and there, day in and day out. I’m bringing this up now because this time each year a tear forms as I remember God’s timing was perfect when He showed me He knew what He was doing.

Most are reading this on December 19th, 2018. This certain event, however, occurred on December 20th, 1990, and that’s why it’s on my heart now. Here is a past blog that explains what took place back then. If you haven’t read it before, then please do, for it will explain to you how God plans when and where things take place. After all . . . God knows what He’s doing,

How about you? Does something specific come to mind where God showed to you His hands were right there? Was there a time it was obvious He knew the right time and right place for you to be? Think about it, and I bet something will come to mind. Ponder on it. Keep it in your heart. Believe me, it will give you a bit more peace when the next big thing unexpectedly pops up. After all . . . His plans are perfect.

Why don’t you now briefly share how God let you know His hands where carrying you. I love hearing other’s stories.

Attitude of Gratitude

                  – Attitude of Gratitude –

There is a sentences I often find myself thinking. It is that spark I need to lift me up.

Keep that attitude of gratitude.  

Attitude of gratitude: making it a habit to express thankfulness and appreciation, on a regular basis, for both the big and small things in life.

Sometimes it may seem like being grateful is almost impossible. Yet the truth is, no matter your situation, you do have something to be grateful for. How in the world can I find gratitude in the two stories I’ve been sharing that I’ve had to endure? (1* 2*) One is that I’m grateful my two ordeals went by much more positive than others who have had to go through trials similar to mine.  The main reason, however, is what I have glued to my heart: God knows what He’s doing.

As our heaimagesrt and mind go through health or relationship trials, we have to believe that God knows what He’s doing. He’s never failed us before. His ways are higher than our ways. His love and goodness will endure. The timing of it all is perfect. Keeping these thoughts can sure help us going through those ups and downs in life.

 

So why don’t you right now reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want, but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have. Just role these thoughts. 1- Accept the fact tough times do show up. 2- Know you are not alone. 3- Realize that not every thing is the worst it ever could be.

If you concentrate on what you do have, knowing God knows just what you need, you’ll start to believe you really do have it made.

John 14:1 – Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

1* – Opening up the trial of my unplanned pregnancy.

2* – Opening up the trial of my brain illness I endured.
