We def do not currently look like this, I’ve stayed in my pj’s all day! 😹😹... because sometimes dating your spouse doesn't involve going out.. but staying in & doing nothing 😻...Chris & I have had a much needed weekend of watching TV (endless episodes of @belowdeckbravo , NetFlix, & now @americanidol with the girls!) & a little pizza 📺🍕 ...
I don’t know if it was the rainy weather today or the fact that I didn’t sleep well last night, but I’ve had a grumbling heart. Every moment has been a fight to stay focused on truth. Instead of being thankful, I’ve focused on things in my day that were inconvenient or less than what I wanted. It’s amazing how quickly a heart can be hardened when we focus on the wrong things. 🍃
In those moments, when I can feel my heart growing bitter, the only thing that gets me out of my funk is the truth of God’s word. 🍃
When I see God accurately, and view myself and my circumstances in light of who he is, I have everything to be thankful for and my circumstances don’t seem as worthy of my attention anymore. 🍃
If today you needed a reminder to focus on truth, here it is. God gives you the tools and ability to change your thinking and view your life differently. You don’t have to stay frustrated, grumbling, or disappointed. You have a Heavenly Father who wants to remind you that you are called to greater things. Let’s start off a new week in thankfulness!
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.” - Romans 8:5
The message I heard this week as we studied John 8. As the Pharisees threw the adulterous woman at the feet of Jesus, He stooped down to be on her level. He stood to face her accusers, and then stooped again, and stayed with her until she was ready to stand.
He will meet you where you are, but He won’t leave you there. When you’re ready to stand, He stands too. When you’re ready to move forward, no one will encourage you more than Him.
His goal is to get you to get up. To take that step forward in the right direction. But if you’re not quite ready...if your faith is a little shaken...if your fear or shame or doubt is crippling...that’s OK. He’ll wait with you. On your level.
Happy Sunday y’all. #sundaythoughts#comeasyouare ...
#SUNDAYThoughts : Let’s admit it, waiting is not easy for most us. It gets boring sometimes, discouraging and parang pointless. Why wait naman if we can have instant and quick results diba? Like most of us, I myself is being tested also with this waiting period. I admit that there are a lot of times already that I got discouraged because I can feel na parang wala nangyayari, parang sobrang tagal Lord, I mean Lord do you still have great plans for me? And just today I just had a lot of realizations that I’d like to share with you also. Below are Four Things that we can do to make our Waiting Time meaningful and productive, kahit minsan mahirap at nakakapagod na rin. I have used the Acronym WAIT para mas madali niyong matandaan…
W- WATCH OUT!
This waiting period could also be the stage that we are most vulnerable. Agree ka ba? Bacause of our impatience, this period could also be the time that we are most tempted to take the easier route at shortcut. Sa Love, sometimes kasi because of our fear of being alone for a long period of time, we tend to just settle for less. Kahit sino na lang kahit hindi pa siya ang pinagpray natin kay Lord basta meron lang, okay na rin. Kaysa wala na ngang dumating pa along the way. However what I have learned from my past experience is that, sobrang valuable pala ng waiting. If I’ve just waited a little bit longer, siguro I could have saved myself from serious heartbreaks and heartaches.
A- ACQUIRE MORE WISDOM FROM THE EXPERIENCES OF OTHERS.
Experience is the best teacher they say but naniniwala ka rin ba na hindi naman natin dapat pagdaanan pa ang isang bagay para lang matuto right? We can actually learn already from the experiences of others. We can acquire wisdom from others. I believe this waiting time is the best time to get all the learnings that we need to better prepare ourselves sa next season ng life natin.

Here’s to being you. Don’t ever apologize for it. 💙 ...
