Perseverance: Today is Day 500

Perseverance– steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. Persevere.♥️

Celebrating 500 consecutive days of blogging. And just think, at one point I didn’t believe I could make it past 50. God is so good. Doing what I’m meant to do. Doing what I love! AND I’m still drawing. Again, God is so good. Blessed


Peace & Patience

So many things are beyond our control. I’m praying that God grants you peace and patience during difficult times, during exciting times (because they can also cause anxiety), and during periods of waiting. Breathe.♥️ Shaun

Eight years ago, I wrote my first “purse note.” It’s the first of several notes I have kept in my purse to refer back to whenever I need encouragement or to be reminded of my dreams, goals and purpose. Yes.. I have eight year old pieces of paper in my purse.

So, I wrote this particular note during a pretty weird time in my life. I say weird, but truthfully, it was almost like an awakening. It was like my spiritual awareness was on 100. No lie! It was like I was connected to the universe and everything I could possibly think of or imagining was coming my way. I felt like a magnet. All I had to do was think of something and it was drawn to me. Y’all, I had never experienced anything like that before. It was pretty surreal!

Here’s a tiny snippet of what I wrote on that day–

“Out of my reach, but nothing is too hard for God.”

I ended the note with this:

Philippians 4:7 (Living Bible version)

If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.

It’s taken me a good seven to eight years to finally understand what it truly means to reside in God’s peace. No matter what I had to endure, God’s peace and love always kept my mind and heart stable and safe from harm.

As for the snippet… Baby, I’ve learned that there’s nothing out of my reach. If I truly want it, I can have it. The catch is, I actually have to work for it. Yep.. gotta put in that work! Smiling

I truly love my life. Y’all, God is so good.

Grateful & Blessed
