    Right expectations – The best is yet to come

    “There are two ways to be happy:  improve your reality or lower your expectations.”  – Jodi Picoult This is by far one of the hardest things we struggle with in life it seems.  Some days you may feel like you can’t walk right, talk right, or do anything right.  Especially if you wake up on the wrong side of the bed.   It is a thing. We take for granted the fact that we have all we need (Psalm 23) As humans we are just in a constant state of expectation.  Not that it’s wrong to expect things, even miracles; however, sometimes we have an unrealistic expectation of how things…

    What Do You Need?

    “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.” – Psalm 23 Have you ever sat in a hospital waiting room, and thought, do they not see I’m in serious need?  Why make me wait so long in this condition?

    The Wonder Years

    “God gives us fresh mercy each morning – enough to get through one day at a time.”  – Sheila Walsh His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23) As the leaves fall and the seasons change, we simply need to be still and know that he is God.  Sometimes it’s hard to live in the moment, when were always planning ahead.  We forget to stop and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, and soak in the moments that make up life.  We are never promised a tomorrow, so we simply need to live for the day and cherish it. “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day…

    Mr Big

     “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” – Jeremiah 32:17 Mr Big is one of the largest chocolate bars produced by Cad-bury.  When I’m perusing the chocolate aisles I see tons of chocolate bars I could choose from; however, I tend to go for the biggest bar I can find, because I know if I choose the smaller of the bunch, I will go in search of more junk food to curb my chocolate craving. “God is a big bully sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass, and I’m the ant. He could fix…
