encouragement along the way

here is a thought from 2 years ago ... i wanted to post something to encourage YOU and to encourage ME ... this week truly is a busy one - but i need thoughts like this too! Attitude is the one thing we can control - regardless of circumstances ... BLESSINGS!


God will be right there in the morning ready to help you through the day with all the power you will need . . . one moment at a time.

I'm accepting this as MY encouragement for the day - it's very timely for me. Thank you!!

Mari said...

Oh Saija - that is so true - I so often combine my attitude with the circumstances. Thanks for the reminder.

Mimi said...

Saija,
this is so very true and I need to just remember that he will give me all the power I need one moment at a time... and not all at once like I am inclined to think He should...
thank you for this reminder

pat ... i hope you are having a RESTFUL weekend!

mari ... attitude is a matter of choice, i've discovered! feelings usually fall in line ... :o)

mimi ... i like to have everything planned out ahead, and i like to know what IS ahead ... the Lord doesn't work that way tho' ... trust trust trust!!

nancy ... yes, minute by minute for sure ... it's a good prooving ground for our faith, isn't it?

cathy ... :o) ... hope you are having a restful, comfortable weekend!

gavin ... i'm glad you are encouraged ... leo has been doing "well" (relative term) ... this fall weather usually gives him a REALLY hard time, but he's had a good attitude lately - which makes the days better!

deby ... yes, some days are better seen in the rearview mirror, aren't they? as long as the lessons linger on ...
