God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
There are three qualities to really take note of in an individual, Loyalty, Respect, and Honesty, and that is someone you can truly trust. There is this song, “If you want love” and some of the lyrics are;
If you want love, you gon’ have to go through the pain If you want love, you gon’ have to learn how to change If you want trust, you gon’ have to give some away
They say love can make you do some crazy things! If you act crazy, but ONLY for a moment, and no more than VERY few and FAR between, we are only human, and depending on what else, then As long as you check yourself, then who am I to disagree? But if a moment has passed, and you still crazy??? Then, no. That is not love. 1 Corinthians 13 is nicknamed the love chapter for a reason. I can tell you that, lying, yelling, keying a car, hitting, reminding someone they’re not worth a title (or the lack thereof), cheating, busting the windows out someones car, allowing your partner to feel insecure (especially men, save that for another day) stealing, and I think you can get where I am going with this list. Anything that would belong in this theme, is not an action of love. I will say, often times, we learn love from our parents or someone who doesn’t know love, and therefore, we do not know love. Because of that, we will show love in the wrong way. Continue reading →
This is something I learned many years ago. (I still struggle at times) Sometimes it kind of sucks because you wind up living in a world where you feel no one understand you. But you can step outside the box and understand everything, and everyone as if you are watching a movie you already know the ending to. This does not mean you are perfect, or that you approve or agree with other people’s views or life choices, but that you can see where they are coming from. You also can see the stupid things you do, know when you are wrong, when you will lose, and you have to be humble enough to know when to give in. The funny thing is that I am a very complex person. Proverbs 14:29 typically is talking about two polar opposite people, but that can be me in one, and that is not always a good thing. Continue reading →
Prayer is extremely important in your relationship with Jesus. 1 John 5:14-15 Tells us that whatever we pray for in God’s will, he will hear us, and if he hears us, then he will answer. I have been praying for my husband to be better for our daughter. He is. He is still the same he was for me. However, cannot stand being the bad guy, and in general he isn’t. I mean he isn’t so mean, he has been mean and said mean things, but he’s not in general. We can co-parent just fine, we get along great, and his daughter adores the mess outta him. He just wants there to either be no bad guy, or 2 bad guys. He cannot be to blame for this, he cannot be the one to blame that his daughter has to have 2 households. That is really a shame. Not even that she ever really has to know the reason. Continue reading →
Sometimes waiting on God can have you feeling like you are stopped at a red light, with a traffic cam, and a cop who knows the light takes 5 hours, 47 min, and 12 sec to change just waiting for you to hit the pedal and go. It can be hard, but in the end you know it will be worth it as your path will be clear, accident free, and ready for you to cruise on down the road.
Habakkuk 1:2 He cries out to the Lord wondering how long he has to wait, and God do nothing. Sometimes it feels like you are all alone and left to fend for yourself. Psalms 130:5-6 Speak of the psalmist’s soul waiting on the Lord, and in wait, in his word, he hopes. Hebrews 11:1 ,Faith is the substance of things hoped for. He is only hoping in his word, I can only imagine how much faith is building as he waits on the Lord alone in a field. It is also the evidence of the things not seen.
There is action in waiting. This makes me think of 2 kinds of waiting. You have a waiting room, where you wait and do nothing. You are just waiting for someone to do something as you sit and look at the time. But then you have a waiter. Continue reading →
