30 Days of Gratitude: Day 10

Admittedly, I still have these moments… or thoughts rather. Can’t necessarily stop thoughts from coming, but you can control how long they last.

Two verses that always come to memory to keep me from going under:

1 Samuel 16:1 “The Lord said to Samuel, ‘How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way.'”

2 Corinthians 10:5 “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

The more time you commit to growing your relationship with God, the more equipped you become to combat the tricks of the enemy (including self). Something key to remember is what you have is all you need for the season you’re in. What’s gone or passed was for your previous season. So, yes, rejoice for what you have now because that’s what you need for your current season. Trust when it’s time to transition, Jehovah Jireh will keep providing all you need to fulfill your purpose.

30 Days of Gratitude: Day 9

I had a follow-up appointment this morning to check my A1C (blood sugar). Been intentionally thanking God throughout the day for the win. I could easily consider it a small win compared to the bigger win/goal (<7, no meds), but nawwww… Today’s 8.9 result is BIG considering I was at a 14+ December, 2021.

So what happened during your day that you may have considered a small win, but when you think about it, it’s really a BIG win? I’d love to celebrate with you.


30 Days of Gratitude: Day 8

Have you ever noticed how your attitude changes when your thinking changes to more positive things? Understandably, it’s a process. It takes time, discipline, and consistency. But mannn… what a big difference it makes in your life to consider all of the ways God has blessed you, favored you, protected you, and provided for you.

30 Days of Gratitude: Day 7

Often times, I’m even thankful for having a bed to sleep in, hot water, a vehicle to get from point A to point. I’ve never been without hot water, but I remember the struggle of sleeping on an air mattress for a long period of time and I remember times when I was without a vehicle. So I make a note to thank him for even the smallest of things I have because I know what it’s like to be without.

I’d love to hear what your morning thank you’s include?

30 Days of Gratitude, Day 5

As the night nears its end, I hope you’ve indeed had a wonderful day.

I was blessed to spend time with family for a double 80th birthday celebration. We had an awesome time celebrating their lives and fellowshipping with each other. Lots of pictures and videos for long-lasting memories.

30 Days of Gratitude, Day 3

This quote takes me back to a dear friends funeral at which I spoke a few words. I remember saying to the family/friends in attendance to remember her by paying it forward what they saw her do. Whether it was encouraging others, being positive in spite of her illness, or serving others… Let us consider how to take the inspiration of others and pay it forward.

I’m also reminded of those who have helped me become the woman I am today. I could never repay them all or for all the sacrifices they made for me. However, what I do try to do is live a life expressive of my appreciation for all they poured into me. It’s easy to say “thank you”. It’s good to say “thank you”. But how much more can we actually “show” appreciation not just to people, but ultimately to God.

I’d love to hear from you. How do you express your gratitude beyond words? (at home, community, workplace).

30 Days of Gratitude, Day 2

Good Evening,

To have an attitude of gratitude is to be thankful for all things, big or small, good or not so good. It’s to remain in a spirit of humility as you acknowledge it could be worse.

But ALWAYS!!! Can anyone ALWAYS be something? I stand to be corrected, but may I encourage you to keep a mindset of thinking on something before reacting. In other words, for a snippet, for a moment, you may forget to have an attitude of gratitude, as this is a process!!! Sometimes you might have to “woosah” your way into an attitude of gratitude. And in those moments, Thank God for growth!!!

31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes ~ Day 11: Door

It’s been a loooooonggg time since I’ve written here or participated in Five Minute Fridays, but here I am after receiving an email about the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes led by Kate Motaung. So the goal is to write for five minutes on the given writing prompt.

Time starts now:

Ohhhh, I love this word, ‘door’. So many things to pull from this. You can be the door that opens up to an opportunity for someone else. In other words, you’re their blessing, their answered prayer. Maybe you’re the door that closes on someone when you realize that they no longer have a place in your space, OR, what you have to offer… they’re not ready to receive. Delayed blessing.

On the other hand… recently head a sermon from Pastor John Gray called “Get the Door”. Maybe God has an open door for you, but you’re trying to take people through it with you that are not meant to go with you. There are many doors with your name on it, but as long as we limit ourselves, we never get to experience the joy of opening them, and seeing what God has in store. We all have a door and we’re a door for someone else. We all have to get in position in order for the next to receive. Are you willing to walk through your door, so you can open another door for someone else? (23 seconds left… )
