    Have a Grateful Heart

    Gratitude is important to God. Getting up with a grateful heart sets my mind that no matter what happens, there is something to be grateful for. Just the thought of the goodness of God, brings a spirit of gratitude. I didn’t have to be here today. Reflection of the many times that the enemy tried […]

  • Welcome 2020!

    Moving forward in 2020! There is so much to share. I realize I can’t share it all in one post but will begin the year back at home writing. There was quite a bit going on in 2019. I have three grandchildren now and that is a true blessing. Loving this phase of my life. […]

    I would like to discuss commitment. In my reading last week, one author posed that true commitment composes four elements. There is the mental component, the physical component, the financial component and the spiritual component.

  • Self-Discipline

    This post is about self-discipline. However, I did want to make sure to add information about the difference between self-discipline and self-control.

Self-discipline is focusing on areas that […]

  • Self-Control

    Self-Control is described as restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions or desires. Galatians 5:23 – “…gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” Proverbs 5:21-23 – 21) For the Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes. 22) An evil man is held captive by his own sins; […]

  • Presence – Being Present

    This is the last word from my post, Peace, Patience, and Presence. I exchanged the word present for being present in the body of the post to be clear. It is the result of being active or being present in the moments of your life. God’s peace works on your patience. Your patience works on […]

    Continuing to expound on the Peace, Patience, and Presence post earlier this week, this post will expound on patience. The definition for patience is “calm endurance of hardship, provocation, pain, delay, etc.”. This definition was found in the Reader’s Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder. However, the definition I retrieved from the NLT Dictionary states that patience […]

  • Peace

    Expounding on peace from my post on Monday, I want to encourage looking for the real and eternal peace, the peace of God. This peace is founded on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. John 14:27 – “I am, leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is […]
