Is There Anybody Out There Listening?

I would like to first ask everyone to please forgive me for not posting in a while. I have just gotten so discouraged lately. Then it dawned on me. Most people don’t say anything, because they may not know what to do. So, I am reaching out right now to let people know what they can do. I am not going to suggest anything drastic, so you don’t have to get nervous!! The first step to dealing with anything is to simply acknowledge that a problem exists. So when you see that distant child across the street, or on your child’s little league team just acknowledge that they actually exist. What I can say from experience is that I always thought that I didn’t matter. That I actually didn’t even exist. Let the child know that not only are you listening, but you are looking as well!

When It Rains It Pours

A wise man told me never to say that it can’t get any worse, because it definitely can. I didn’t believe him. I guess I had to be made a believer. Things in my life definitely got worse. I love the Lord, and know that I am living right.This storm just seems too hard. I am standing on His promises. Praying only for help with whatever His will be. I just want to ask whoever reads this to agree with me in prayer. That God gives me the strength to weather this storm.

Monday Morning

Monday mornings remind me a fresh,clean slates. Whatever happened in our lives last week is over and done with. Let’s start a new!! No matter the situation you survived and for that you ought to be mighty grateful. I know I am. Let’s try this week to not only wipe our slates clean, but our minds and hearts as well. I love all of you. I really do from the bottom of my heart. Have a great week!!

A Change,A Change Has Come Over Me

I am extremely grateful for the things that have happened in my life. A wise woman made me begin to put Romans 8:28 into every area in my life. All things work together for my good. I had to think about that for a minute…. ALL things? Bad things? The Word says ALL things! Whether they are good, or bad they work together for my good! If I just concentrate on the bad things I can see that if they hadn’t happened I wouldn’t have a testimony! Then I wouldn’t be able to give God the glory for bringing me out!

So, even when things aren’t going the way that I plan in life. I just remember that ALL things work together for my good!!

Am I Wrong?

This morning I was having a conversation with someone who I consider to be a close friend. While they were traveling with me I noticed them wearing a homeless scan card around their neck like a badge of honor. Please don’t take this wrong,but since very recently I was actually homeless myself I don’t particularly find amusing an able bodied young person with no children obviously clearly taking advantage of a system made to assist those persons in need.

I got seriously angered by listening to this person actually brag about all the assistance they received! There are people out there who honestly and truly need a hand up, and our society clearly doesn’t need to be a crutch for people who actually feel like living off the kindness and generosity of others is a way of life!

I know that sometimes I can be real hard on people, so I ask you today. Am I wrong for feeling this way? Please tell me. I honestly want to be a better person, and if my thinking this way will hinder me in any way I want to truly change my thought pattern.

Been A While huh?

Yes, I know that it has been a while and believe me the world has still been turning. Even though I have my own apartment now, and I’m still working sometimes I wonder is it all even worth it. Then I remember what Christ did for me on the cross, and I say to myself you betcha!! Jesus never gave up on me, so I won’t give up on Him!!

 

Been A While Huh?

Alright. Let’s get ready for the weekend with a good book. Well, actually I wouldn’t call it a good book as much as I would call it informative. We as women need to learn about the things that so many of us have tried to keep hidden for far too long!Please go on lulu.com and put in the search engine The Girl That Glows paperback by Onyx. Then click on the second box. Put in your birth date as I have an age restriction on it because of the physical and sexual abuse.
