What are you Thankful for?

I’m thankful for the mini van my parents made me drive my senior year in high school because it makes me appreciate the car I drive now (haha!). I’m thankful FOR a car to drive, gas in my tank, and hearing my favorite song come on in the radio. I’m thankful for the season inContinue reading “What are you Thankful for?”

What Are You Being Prepared For?

Let your problems prepare you for your destiny. If your life is tough, God has the biggest plans for you. Being pampered doesn’t build strong character; troubles, trials, and tribulations do. Anyone can be resentful, angry, hurtful, and bitter. Only the strong can be forgiving, loving, and a better person because of their hardships. Choose toContinue reading “What Are You Being Prepared For?”

Let your Faith be bigger than your Fear

Pray for time. Time heals all. Give time time. Believe in miracles. Smile hard and laugh louder. Be thankful for the people who let you down. They give others the chance to pick you up. Praise God in moments of silence. Just because He’s quiet doesn’t mean He doesn’t care… it means He’s listening. RejoiceContinue reading “Let your Faith be bigger than your Fear”

If you learn from your past, there are no “mistakes”– only lessons. “The greater theContinue reading “It’s a choice”

The most people beautiful are the people who spend more time helping others than trying to figure out how others can help them. Beautiful people give, not take. Beautiful people find the beauty in whatContinue reading “Where He guides, He provides”

Life Happens

Failure isn’t fatal or final and “failing” at something doesn’t make you a failure… not getting back up, or not trying at all is. “The only real failure in life is the failure to try.” Failure is not defeat until you stop trying. Never confuse one loss or defeat to a total loss or aContinue reading “Life Happens”

Positivity

Happiness is a choice. People are as happy as they allow themselves to be. Your happiness, or lack thereof, is not a reflection of how other people around you treat you; your happiness is a direct result of the choices you make… you alone choose the actions that bring those feelings. Let them be actionsContinue reading “Positivity”

Choices

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” It’s not our job to change the people God puts into our lives- it’s our job to love them. If God wants to change them, He will do it. You can’t change someone’s past; you NEED to accept them for everythingContinue reading “Choices”
