Do It Afraid

A few years ago, I shared this quote – “Fear is only temporary. Regret lasts forever.” I’m not sure if regret lasts forever; however, I do know fear is only temporary.

Your vision is clear. Don’t allow fear to stop you from fulfilling your purpose. Do it afraid!♥️ ~ Shaun

Still Standing

Smile. You’re still standing!

Yes.. After all you’ve been through, you are still standing. You survived!♥️

This year has taught me that I cannot keep running from the storms, the pain, the disappointments, the heartaches. No, I have to stand in them and through through them. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting too old for this. I’m too tired. Then, God reminds me that He’s strong when I’m weak. All I have to do is lean on Him. He’s brought me through before and He’ll do it again. BUT.. I have to go through it. Running from it only delays the breakthrough. It delays progress, which delays the dream.

Standing!

Life.. Will It Ever Make Sense?

They say one day everything will make sense. But what if it doesn’t? What if the ups and downs of life never makes sense?

My advice– a word for myself– don’t try to make things make sense. As long as God has you in His hands, you’ll be fine. Trust Him.♥️ ~ Shaun

Serenity

Serenity: the state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled

This is what I see when I think of serenity. It’s where my imagination takes me whenever I need to get away. Yes, I still use my imagination.☺️

Today, I’m here.

Enjoy your day!♥️

The Flow

Life happens, right? And some things are just completely beyond our control. I would say this past week has taught me the meaning of, “Just go with the flow.” However, it’s one lesson I’ve been learning over the past year and a half.

Last night I finally stop resisting it, even the slightest bit. Last night I changed my prayer from, “Lord, I’m tired. Please help me make it.” to “Lord, I know you will not put more on me than I can bear. Please help me handle things from a place of peace.”

Today, I’m going with the flow from a place of peace. Projects that need to get done will be done when I get to them. Deadlines will have to be pushed back, and I’m okay with that. I know that where I am at this moment is where I need to be. God’s got me. Everything will always work out according to God’s plan, which will always be in my favor. ♥️

Wednesday Writings

Today, I am beginning a little late. Decided everything else could wait. I needed to spend some quality time with God. Do not get me wrong, I talk to God all day long; however, while I’m talking, I’m also doing a million other things. So if my focus is not solely on God can I truly say I’m spending time with Him? Hmm…

Well, I began today a bit differently. In stead of me doing a lot of talking– asking a thousand questions and trying to figure things out– I sat still and listened. If you did not know, so many answers can be found while sitting still and giving God your undivided attention. You should try it!

So, yes.. today, I sat still, listened and found my answers. I hear You, God. Smiling

Thanks for reading. Wishing you a wonderful day.
