Prayers Please

Where has my heart been lately? Where has my head been? One of my biggest passions- Writing! For some reason I have had MAJOR writers block. Can’t seem to write much and cant seem to even follow the “rules” of writing something each day. Even if it is small and insignificant.

Prayers, please fellow bloggers and readers. I need to block out all the negativity, reconnect with hearing what God wants for me to share with other women, and find my passion again!

Appreciate you all!!!

A Soul Preparing

Deeper colors, pumpkins sitting on the sidewalk begging to be taken home, sunflowers adorning gift shop counters and fields, excuses to be inside in pajamas at 7:00pm with shorter days here.

Fall

Weather man announcing “cooler temperatures this evening”, thoughts of stews, soups and the smell of cinnamon, naps on the couch and movies that make me cry. Pumpkin scented candles, apple cider and candied apples. Fairs and festivals and little children in light jackets running and laughing.

Squealing within at the chance to open the windows and doors in the evenings. Preparing to say goodbye to the hummingbirds that have enjoyed their sugar water this year. Wondering how I will de-stress as I am preparing for the time approaching when the mower hibernates till Spring.

Joyful for another Season come and gone, thankful for the trials and tears, triumphs and laughter. Reflective yet anticipating.

It is in the air and in my soul.

Positive Ponderings

girl_2_edited-1 

Spending time with the Lord this morning, a verse grabbed hold of my heart and won’t let go. Joshua 1:3

Positive Pondering:

“I choose the Promised Land”

Joshua 1:3 “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that I have given to you, as I said unto Moses” (KJV)

Every place…not some places and not only those I think I deserve…

From a place of poverty into a place of riches

From a place of depression into a place of joy

From a place of battle into a place of victory

From a place of confusion into a place of knowledge

From a place of sadness into a place of happiness

From a place of wilderness into a place of the promised land

From a place of the law into a place of grace

From a place of fear into a place of trust

From a place of lies into a place of truth

From a place of drought into a place of rain

To a place of bringing souls to Christ

To a place of a lasting marriage

To a place of enlarged territory

To a place of hope

To a place of love

To a place of helping

To a place of healing

“Positive Ponderings” Details & Rules:

----Once a week we will meet here at Seeking Peace for a small lesson on the power of positive thinking. Some of the “lessons” will be ones I have learned from what God has taught me…while others may be quotes I obtain from other more experienced positive thinkers.

----Each one of us, including myself, will be required to speak one positive thing aloud on these days and share it with others.

----In addition to speaking it aloud, we then will type ourPositive Pondering” for the day in the comments section below..(although mine will be listed here in the blog)

----Also, if you have a blog, you are then welcome to create a new post of your own and link it back to me. Feel free to write whatever God lays on your heart. But make sure to share your “Positive Pondering” there with others, also.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

Positive Ponderings

girl_2_edited-1

My thought for today is one that I want so hard to break through the negative. It is a thought that is a truth I cling to. I repeat this over and over to myself and let the peace it brings, sink in

Positive Pondering:

“God is in control!”

The truth this brings eases my soul today. I know that God will be the places I can’t go. He will be with the people I love that I can’t protect. He will take care of situations that are out of my control. He will remain faithful and true. I praise God for His hand in my life.
