What Doesn't Break Me will Mold Me

“What doesn’t break me will mold me,” is a thought I had the other day while having a calming moment with our Heavenly Father in prayer, meditation, and exercise. Because we’re all trying to get through this Coronavirus pandemic #AloneTogether, global tensions, inflation, and personal problems, I want to share this moment with you.

Happy thoughts and positive thinking will help each of us get through any time of concern we may face from time to time. That’s why, from time to time, on Saturday mornings, I will offer affirmations by providing positive quotes, words of encouragement, Bible verses, fun videos, and anything else that may make you smile or feel less anxious.

Strength from God

God has given women the grace to get through trials that come their way. Those trials can burden us if we let them, or we can let them mold us into what God wants us to become. Strength comes from persevering through tough times. Therefore, this strength we’re building will help us turn from being worriers in the world to being warriors for Christ.

I don’t want you to feel doom and gloom nor hopeless and beaten. So, let’s work on our future and leave the rest to God and his perfect timing. This inspirational NIV Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11 goes well with the quote today. “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

New Adventures

There’s plenty we can do while we’re waiting through this pandemic! In fact, we don’t have to muddle through this. Below are a few ideas to keep us busy.

  • Spend at least 20 minutes outside every day when the weather is good
  • Try a new craft
  • Start a journal
  • Clean out closets, cabinets, and drawers
  • Read a book

Better yet, let’s spend precious time with our family: dust off the board games, have daily family Bible readings, take nature walks in the backyard.

I’m going to be sharing lots of health and wellness tips, recipes, and craft projects with you too! Therefore, my promise to you is that you won’t have time to think about problems, because we have a future to mold!

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

New Elderly Tips

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts. Together, we can figure this out. We're going to fill our blank canvas with helpful information. I won't be posting any future updates to the other site here, so you will want to bookmark it if you're interested in reading this type of information. Thanks for stopping by today.
