😎🐫🎀 At Mass last weekend I heard, “You are all that You are by the grace of God.” And in my head, I immediate added to the statement… “Nothing more and nothing less.”  Where does that “less” come from in our lives, strangers, acquaintances? How about those closer to us coworkers, friends and family?  The closer someone is, the more they can push our buttons and make us feel like less. Then…we hold onto that hurt, convince ourselves that we are less than the child of God that we are and we live in that new identity of “less”. We need to quit beating ourselves up and listen for what God is telling us we are, by His grace.

😎🐫🎀 I know this is a little late today, but I got to sleep in because we are having a new HVAC system installed, that we are paying cash for. What a great feeling! Β And it’s all because 6 years ago a friend wasn’t afraid to act upon God’s prompting and paid for us to attend Financial Peace University. We started managing money God’s way and I couldn’t begin to tell you how He has blessed us. Β God’s love, grace and blessings surround us every moment of every day. It doesn’t matter how high you are on life today or what hole you feel you are trapped in. God is with you. One of the greatest prayers we can ever speak to our Lord is THANK YOU. For our trials, unknowing, change of heart, growth, joys and forgiveness, THANK YOU covers it all. Know that you are blessed and the Lord loves you with a never-ending love.Β

😎🐫🎀 I’m sure you’ve been asked at some point in your life “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?”  Then we start to dream big. And then doubt and lack of action seems to follow.   When God puts His plans/thoughts in your head, we need to trust Him fully. Take that step knowing that He won’t let you sink. It’s okay if you don’t know where that next step will lead you, just trust that the Lord will carry you one step at a time and you will be AMAZED at how far He will carry you for His glory. What has God placed on your heart that you keep ignoring?  Trust and honor the Lord with your actions. Bless others and be blessed.

😎🐫🎀 I thought I knew what song I was going to send out today, but God woke me up by singing this song to me. 

The past couple of nights I’ve been praying a lot for those being affected by hurricane Matthew. That also brought to mind something that Lori (my youngest daughter) told me during some storms of life…The sun (Son) always comes out after the rain. Whether we believe it or not, whether we see Him or not, God is ALWAYS with us, in the dark times and the light. He is the rock you can cling to in every storm and know that you won’t get washed away. But you have to choose to hold tight to Him and have a relationship with Him. I think at some point in our lives, we’ve all been in a one-sided relationship.  That’s not a good relationship to be in. Go all in with your relationship with God. He will amaze you.

😎🐫🎀 A few years ago, as I was driving north on 75 on my way to work, I experienced a radiant sunrise and prayed:

Lord, fill be with your Son so that I may be a brilliant reflection of You to those around me. May they experience You long before they see me. 

Since then, this has become my morning prayer. Bless others and be blessed.

😎🐫🎀 This past weekend I was able to spend some great quality time with the Lord. He showed me my past, good as well as the ugly. He forced me to face my unforgiveness head on. And He also showed me that I’m the only one with my story. I pray that we have the courage to willingly go where the Lord is guiding us, so that He can and will use the story He has written for us, to bring others to Him. Bless others and be blessed.
