Normally when I eat lunch alone I get on my phone and pull up social sites and browse while I eat. Today I decided to just relax and enjoy the beautiful day. It’s amazing what you see when you just stop, unplug and look around. I saw beautiful fluffy clouds against an amazing blue sky, the green grass, the little tree buds. I heard the birds singing. I noticed the warm breeze. I thanked God for each thing I was enjoying. I felt so connected to Him. When lunch was done I came back to work refreshed and ready to finish my day. I definitely will be doing this more often. How about you? Do you ever take time to stop and unplug from the busy world around you? If not give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Yesterday I researched all afternoon on a work project I needed to learn how to do. By time I left, it still wasn’t right. I have to try it on my own before I give up and ask for help. This morning I gave in and called the help desk. They were able to walk me through and get the job done. I do this at work but I also catch myself not asking God for help. I try and try on my own but in the end I turn to Him. Psalm 46:1 reads “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Why can’t I learn to do this in the beginning? It’s because I’m human. What about you? Do you go it alone or ask Him for help? Thanks for reading!
Do you ever have a day when you feel like everything you touch turns into a disaster? It feels like nothing went right? It’s just a plain old bad day. If you are like me by the end of the day you feel worn down and defeated. John 16:33 reads “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” I think we all have bad days. I know I do but you know what, though it all God is still there, He knows, He sees it all and He will overcome! Thanks for reading!
We are back after spending the weekend with good friends. We encouraged each other. We had some serious talks but we also laughed more than we have in months. I’m so thankful to be blessed by them. I know they are there for me and they know I am there for them. It reminds me of Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.” Do you have those special people in your life you call good friends? If not, you are missing out on many blessings. Thanks for reading!
I ran my first 10k today. It took me 1:57:08 to finish. I wasn’t able to run the entire time but I ran as much as I could. I felt like quitting several times but I kept going! He gave me people to encourage me to keep going . Yes I cried as I crossed the finish line. My first words were “Thank you Lord!” He was the one who helped me. When I felt like giving up, he gave me the strength to finish the race. Reminds me of Philippians 4:13 “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” He will always help us finish anything that is put before us. Don’t give up, keep going!
