To be successful, make many tiny accessible goals, not something grandiose maybe beyond your reach because of a number of variables. So, today I had success by God’s amazing grace in several arenas.
I made it through helping the entire time during our church’s yard sale 7am-1pm. We raised close to $400 for missions, praise God! Success 1.
I kept my fast pure today by God’s grace amidst lots of eating around me and things going on. Success 2.
I figured out how to shampoo our studio carpet all by myself and completed that. Success 3.
That is enough success for one day. I am very blessed and thank God for every success and grace to carry on. He is so good!!!😄❤❤❤
So, today was very eventful. I am on my 6th day fasting and was feeling very tired and a bit lethargic, hard to get up in the morning. Once I did, I walked thr dog on a long walk (about a mile), helped work on paneling the studio with poly wall sheets, swept and mopped and caulked my mom’s house, touched up some knicks on the tub and aink with a fiberglass repaur kit, worked more on sorting through the studio, then we were told that my husband’s oldest brother was in the urgent care unit of the hospital and is on a ventilator so we go visit for a few hours. There was more tucked in there with my daughter but you get the gist. An eventful day. I am exhausted and have to get up early for a fundraising yard sale at church for missions.
But before I get some sleep, I wanted you to know that God answered my prayer for time to pray and strength as I fasted. That blessed me. I never would have made it through a busy day like that on no food and with time to pray without Him. Also, all those things blessed other people. Visiting my brother in law and his family ministered to them, showed we cared. Cleaning my mom’s floors ministered to her and helped her have a clean house despite being quite infirm. That was a blessing. Working on the studio ministered to my husband who cannot always help do the work because of his bad knee and overall health. That was a blessing.
The thing is that what we do matters. And being there to help, despite what you feel like or think you can do, matters eternally. These things are never overlooked by our Savior. Bless someone today! It feels heavenly! ❤
We are given everything we need by a living Father God, salvation through Jesus Christ and thr indwelling power of the Holy Spirit, alongside the written Word of God, the Bible as our guide. So here is your love encouragement truth for the day… humbly ask God and talk to Him for life and whatever you need and He will provide what you really need. God has this for you. How loving and beautiful is that?!😄❤
Happy Resurrection Day to you!!! May your salvation be secure in Jesus Christ, our Messiah and Savior, the risen Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Praise be to God! Let’s all celebrate our hope in Jesus today together!!😄❤
Gig was rained out and rescheduled, so we had an open day. So we went out to the movies! We watched How to Train Your Dragon 3. It was great. We all loved it. Feel good movie and quite beautiful and satisfying. Loved it. And afterward we had some KFC. So a wonderful family day. Just have to do that once in a while and it is well worth the time to get in some family bonding time. So good.😄❤
I am responsible today for my thoughts, words and actions.
I can make decisions which honor God or hurt His kingdom.
I am responsible for those decisions.
I will be careful then to make the right decisions today.
I choose to make good decisions.
And I can and will humbly pray for help from God to do this.
And He will help because He loves me and He is more than strong enough to help.
So today His peace and joy will envelop me.
I will be His loving light to honor Him.❤
We spent the day decorating my Great Aunts’ house. All day. They have a lot of decorations and can no longer do it themselves. What a beautiful thing to serve someone else all day as a family. It was beautiful. I am so grateful for this busy day in Avon Park. Loved every minute of it.😄❤
