There is nothing that God does that is not good. Restated, every single thing God does is good. He is good. It is who He is. God blesses and grows us. Both are good and produce good results. Staying close to God is good too. Best place to be all the time.😃❤️
Don’t sit around and wait for what happens. Be proactive and do what you van that is good such as pray, worship, learn, study the Bible, listen to podcasts, read books, volunteer, serve, go to church, help someone, call someone, visit someone, write an actual letter or card to someone, smile. All of these things feel great, are the right thing to do, show love to God, yourself and others.😃❤️
The Choice to Remember
To a significantly great extent, we are given the ability to choose to remember or forget. Now I realize that traumatic events take a great deal of time and forgiveness more than time to get to that place, but it is possible. I am proof of that. I remember what went down, but no longer remember smells or details or pain or sounds and yells. I chose to forgive long ago and more recently asked to forget and God granted me that to the extent a human mind can. We have to remember some or it may be repeated or help someone else somehow. Also, it becomes a beautifully remade scar filled with God’s diamond dust healing to give Him glory for healing us from it and making us prettier and humble.
But I really went down a rabbit hole there because I want us to all start practicing the remembrance of good things. In fact, I suggest we get a notebook or memo app and write down who and what kindness was done to us in our day. Thr smallest thing, the biggest thing. We can choose to remember. And then we can, at the end of the day, week, month, whatever, look at them and smile and thank God for those blessings. It may encourage you. You may see patterns. You may appreciate more. You may whine less. You may share the idea with someone else who seems down a lot. It may help them. Old fashioned people call that counting our blessings, but make that fresh and call it “choosing good” or “good things to remember” or something. Maybe post some good thing to lift someone’s face to God for a minute. Maybe change the world one good thing at a time.😄❤
A Surprise Gig Tomorrow
So, all of a sudden, we were called today to cover for a guitarist and singer that had to bail on the gig for work. That is unheard of… 2 people to bail out of a gig last minute. I mean, we even gig sick as a dog, but for work, ya gotta do it. So, they called us, our old buddies from an earlier band. And of course we are going to help them out. So here we go tomorrow at Old Town in Celebration/Kissimmee on the main stage. So n excited and wanted to give a shout of praise to God for turning the hurricane for us (whoo hoo, praise God!) and let you know that if you keep good contacts and musical relationships, we help each other and I am thankful for that. So, I am grateful and excited right now and wanted to share that goodness from God! No, back to work and getting my book ready and learning some songs. Come by tomorrow if you are around. Love you!😄❤
