Take time....

to remember how God has been there for you!!

One of the most powerful motivations for believing in God in our present is intentionally remembering how He's worked in the past.
Beth Moore

It is easy to get stuck in a rut of discouragement if we don't take time to remember what God has done for us in the past. If you are feeling discouraged today - take some time to sit down and write down how God has helped you in the past. It is a faith builder that we all need from time to time.
Then write down some of God's promises from His word.
One of my personal favorites is:

For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Seeing His testimonies in your life along with powerful promises from God's word on paper will help us do all that He puts before us today!!

    This is a discussion Scott and I have been going over the last month.

    Bloom where you are - allow God to use you right where He has you - listen to His calling and allow nothing to stand in the way of God using you no matter where that may be - in your home - as a wife, a parent, a friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a father, a teacher, a pastor or a doctor. God calls us all to some need and we must be willing to lay down our desire or plans for His. Not go where others go because it sounds good or guilt. But to go right in the center of His will for our lives.

    Ephesians 4:1-16

    By His very word and only by His power!

    Love and blessings,
