Have You Noticed The Good In Your Day?

If you look hard enough you can NOTICE beauty everywhere you go. I took these pictures today in my front yard.

It’s about focusing your mind to be aware, or on the lookout, for what you WANT your attention on.

Check this out. Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭ENCOURAGES us in this mindset.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is TRUE, whatever is HONORABLE, whatever is JUST, whatever is PURE, whatever is LOVELY, whatever is COMMENDABLE, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, THINK about THESE THINGS.”

So, when we NOTICE negative thoughts, anxiety, worries, guilt, or envy taking over our thoughts it’s up to US to replace them with HEALTHIER thoughts like the ones listed above.

Try it for yourself, or share it with someone else.

Have You Been Working On A New Habit?

I haven’t been to the gym in over 2 weeks!  Various (excuses) reasons. We’re starting back in a healthy rhythm today. IMG_5895

Can you relate?

The trick is to eventually pick it back up, whatever it is. Writing, exercising, reading, meditating, journaling….what new habit have you been working on?

Wishing you a wonderful and productive week.

I Shattered A Glass This Morning

Did YOUR day start like this?  IMG_5888

First thing this morning…I was simply trying to slide it out of the way and it tipped over. Water and broken glass ALL OVER the counter. “Really? Are you freaking kidding me?” (I actually said that out loud)

Then I stopped, cleaned it up, and RESET my attitude.

Now, I don’t want you to get the impression that I am THIS DISCIPLINED all the time. Ha, that is NOT the case. And it’s not like we haven’t been informed that crappy days were going to be part of life.
John 16:33 reads,
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have PEACE. In this world you will have TROUBLE. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Jesus himself PROMISES that even though TROUBLES will attempt to take over our days, weeks, and even months…YOU & I can overcome them AND HAVE PEACE!

Whether you’re in a pleasant or difficult season right now, may you have the awareness and thirst to LEAD INTO JESUS. May you also FEEL HIS in yours as he guides you on this journey.
