My life is lived by faith…not blind faith, but supernatural faith. It works for me. Faith means much to many people and means nothing to others.
There are many examples of faith throughout the Bible and chapter one of Hebrews is a great example.
This came to me from the book, Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard:
“Faith has nothing to do with intellectual belief. Faith is obedience. Faith and abandonment to God’s will and power are inseparable. Faith is willingness to do God’s will. Unwillingness to abandon one’s own will and to obey God is unbelief.”
Because I believe, my life is lived by faith.
How many times do we let the past put our present in jeopardy?
Some life lessons do make sense and this is one I picked up on Pinterest is one of them. Happy Saturday.
Aristotle said: “There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing”
Today is the day to avoid criticism. Happy Saturday.
There is something to be said for decluttering. In the process we find things we forgot we had; things that simply cannot be considered clutter. Yesterday, I found this lovely quote among piles of papers no longer needed.
Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can’t handle together.
This is definitely a keeper.
Here’s a quote I recorded from somewhere…I know not when or from where but it is a good one.
I’m not positive, but I think thinking positive is positively the only way to think.
The artist, Thomas Kinkaid, known as the painter of light, is also known for his uplifting thoughts of which I share a few here:
Life offers second chances.
You’ll never know if life can be trusted until you take the risk of really living.
Approach every day of your life with dedication.
To gain a fresh perspective on your world, try looking at life through the eyes of a child.
Life, even a balanced, harmonious life, was never meant to be static and unchanging.
Life offers courage and strength and humor to cope with the inevitable negatives.
If you want little gifts of joy in your life…you may actually have to train yourself to notice them.
Life, if you have eyes to see the whole picture, brims with meaning, with purpose.
I’ll have more Kinkaid quotes in a few days.
It is a good thing to “live in the light”.
Schedules and routines were made to serve us, not to rule us.
Even if events don’t turn out the way we want, we still have options and new possibilities.
Pay attention to your passions, your purposes, and your pursuits.
Small gestures, small events, small experiences often mean the most.
With every creative act, you light a fresh candle for a darkened world.
You can choose to trust in the richness and beauty of life.
The hard work of creativity includes the work of getting good enough to do what you really want to do.
It takes courage to push ourselves off center, to think in nonstandard ways.
If you want beauty in your life, you simply have to go outdoors from time to time.
