Start Your Day in ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Prayer

#morningprayer

โ€Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me. For I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Matt. 11:28-30).

Jesus, you said when I am weary, exhausted and burdened, I need to come to You. I am coming to You today. You promised if I come to You and follow You, You will give me rest; You will refresh me. You promised that if I take on Your burden and learn from You, I will find soul-rest.

Jesus, I need rest deep, deep down in my soul. Teach me. Train me how to wait on You. Show me how to lay down my burden and take up Your burden instead. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Have an amazing Thursday!

Looking to Enjoy Life…read my top 10 tips๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Happy Sunday, hope these tips help you as you go about your day……

1.Devotion: An Enthusiastic Zeal

Devotion in a relationship keeps you away from being an infidel. It keeps your loyalty to your company and of course, your eagerness to simply do better in life. Just look at the numerous nuns who have chosen a vocation of devoutness.

2. Grace: Keeping It All In

Despite all the heartaches and pains in life, individuals should struggle to adapt to a life filled with grace. You need not be beautiful if you exude grace as with it, everything seems to glow so easily.

3.Idealism: The Pursuit Of Perfection

Despite everything else, each individual should always pursue idealistic ways. In times of chaos, need or dispute, it may be the only virtue that will keep you sane. And after, idealism will allow you to keep your humanity too.

4.Love, Love, Love.

It is truly the purest of all emotions and exactly what you need to make you want better things. And because, โ€œall you need is love.โ€

5.Mercy: Knowing When To Be Powerful

Understanding the concept of forgiveness is one thing but being able to give mercy is another. In this cruel world that people live in, mercy is a saving grace.

6.Sensitivity: A Touching Asset

Knowing exactly when to react and what to do about a certain situation is too lovely especially between individuals who have no power to say their needs out loud.

7.Wonder: Insatiable Curiosity

To be continuously amazed by things is crucial as it revitalizes the human spirit despite failing circumstances.

8.Service: Giving Back When It Matters

The ability of helping others is a very powerful tool in satisfying the inner self. It is an act that is never fails to bring smile to every oneโ€™s faces.

9.Knowledge: The Power To Reason

Knowing what to do, how to act, when to respond and how to do it are important things to own in times of joy and pain. Being able to process an idea has been the only thing that has separated man from the other creatures. Constantly sharpen your intellect by feeding your mind with ideas, thoughts and information.

10.Joyfulness: A Smile To Give๐Ÿ˜„

Because life is not always easy, finding reasons to smile is as important as physique and intellect. My fav one!

Spruce Up Your Relationships With These Quick Tips!โฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

Today is the BIG love day, but if you are like millions of real people love sometimes can be hard….when dealing with a spouse you really have to understand each and learn each other. I made it to 14 years by learning something’s about myself in order to better our relationship! Here are a few things to help you as well:

  • Share responsibilities. Help each other out and lend a hand. There is no competition or score keeping in a relationship. It is a team effort!
  • Say youโ€™re sorry. The infamous words we long to hear and are afraid to utter. These three words can quickly deflate any argument, especially if said in sincerity and love.
  • Take care of yourself mentally. Everyone has a mental breaking point. Know yours and share that point with your partner. Let them know when you need some space and what they may need to do or not do to help you out.
  • Face spirituality together. Often this is the one thing couples discuss last. Whether you share beliefs with your partner or not, this is a discussion that is a must. (My fav) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ
  • Learn to fight a good fight. Fights are not always bad things. Refrain from name calling, putting down, and needling sensitive areas of the other person. It ups the ante so to speak.

Hope these help you as much as they have helped me!!!โค๏ธ

Happy Valentine’s Day…here’s to better relationships!!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโฃ๏ธ

Start Your Morning Off in Prayer๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

#selflove

#morningprayer

๐Ÿ™๐ŸพPrecious Father,

I marvel at the way You love me from immaturity to maturity, from brokenness to wholeness. You donโ€™t berate me for my blunders or belittle me for my weakness. You meet me in those places and make me strong. You bind up my wounds so they can heal. You give rest to my heart so it can beat strong again. You are with me. You are God Most High. Do a miracle in and through me, Lord! Heal my soul and make me whole. Make me a Kingdom woman. Help me to live a life totally disproportionate to who I am. May others pursue You when they see what You do through me! In Jesusโ€™ Name, I pray. Amen.

Have an amazing Monday ๐Ÿ’ž

How to Combat Being Alone in 4 Quick Steps๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#selflove

โฃ๏ธI know it’s easier said than done, but being alone is ok? Stop jumping into relationships because you can’t stand the loneliness!

Here are 4 Tips to help combat the lonely days.

Use these steps to help you stop feeling the need for companionship. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’žGet Comfortable Being Alone

Enjoy your own company. Take time out to get to know yourself better. Write a journal and chart your thoughts and feelings when you are feeling lonely. Take yourself out on dates, be it for a dinner at a nice restaurant or a movie that youโ€™ve been waiting to see. Once you are comfortable with your own company, other people are more likely to enjoy spending time with you as well.

๐Ÿ’žGet Animal Companionship ๐Ÿถ(my fav)

Thereโ€™s nothing quite like having a dog waiting for you by the door when you get home, or a cat purring on your pillow. Animals make marvellous companions โ€“ they love unconditionally and are unfailingly loyal. Walking your dog can be a great way to meet new people as well. Smaller animals such as hamsters or geckos can also make you feel needed if you do not want to commit to getting a dog or cat.

๐Ÿ’žGet Out of the House

Get out of the house when you can instead of allowing yourself to wallow in loneliness.Go outside, get some fresh air, go to the mall, the park or even just the grocery store. Make an effort to speak to at least someone, even if itโ€™s only a sales assistant.

๐Ÿ’žGet Involved in a Local Cause

Are you concerned about the environment? Passionate about inner-city education? Volunteer your time and skills at the local library, civic organization, or charitable foundation. Helping others will make you feel good about yourself, occupy your mind, and stop you from thinking about how alone you are. Having a shared interest is also a great way to develop new friendships.

Now…all of these tips I have actually used before I met my hubby! I learned so much about myself during this time!

Ladies self~love also means enjoying YOU!
