Determined

I am determined to meet the bar where it is raised.

I am determined to meet the challenges and requirements.

I am determined to be victorious.

I am determined to come out our gold on the other side of this .

Being confident in my God.

Leaning not on my own understanding .

Trusting Him.

Having faith in Him.

Believing God that He will give me the ability to excel .

I am determined to learn.

I am determined to grow.

I am determined to be stretched.

I am determined to adapt and embrace a new skill set.

I know I can do all things through Christ.

He is my inspiration and the head of my life .

And I am encouraged.

I am motivated.

And I am determined.

Missing the Bus

I missed the bus today and it wasn’t my fault.

I came to the bus stop early hoping to arrive to my destination early.

And as I am walking towards the bus stop early,

I watch the bus ride by me early.

I cannot lie or sugarcoat this.

I became furious because it is like a domino effect.

One thing that comes early, causes one late thing, to another late thing ,to another late thing.

It can produce a level of anxiousness.

And a level of frustration.

When these things happen I often have wonder what can I do differently?

What can I do to avoid this?

I guess, being extra early and being prepared to wait might be an indefinite solution, however an action I can take to do the best I can on my part.

When I boarded the bus, it became extra packed because the before it came so early,

I wasn’t the only one affected.

Yet I wonder am I not the only one thinking so deep into this.

I missed the bus, now I will miss the train,

Addendum, thank God I will make the train๐Ÿ˜€

However I am so deep in thought because I missed the bus.

Another Addendum, I am on the bus.

On my way๐Ÿ˜€

Have a blessed day ๐Ÿ’–

Thank you for reading.

Taking time to Center Myself

It is necessary when I feel powerless to take the time to center myself.

It is necessary when I feel overwhelmed to stop and center myself.

It is necessary when I feel frustrated to pause and center myself.

If is necessary when I am aggravated to take a moment to center myself.

When I say center myself I mean to meditate on the Lord.

When I say center myself I mean to take a moment to pray.

When I say center myself I mean, seek to align with God.

Because God has that perfect peace that no one understands.

Because God has that perfect peace that comes from putting hands in His hands.

I feel so much better, when I stop and center myself.

Right Before

Right before, I rise from my rest.

Right before, I begin the day and begin my tasks.

I look to You and meditate on Your Word.

Right before my day begins.

Right before anything happens.

I look to You and give You thanks.

Right before I go out the door.

Right before my two feet hit the floor.

Right before the arrival of the morning light.

Right before I engage in the responsibilities that I have in this life.

It is for you I thirst.

It is You that I put first .

Yes Before .

Not after,

But Before.

Made Up My Mind 9-18-2018

Made up my mind to do it this time,

Made up my mind to go forth.

Made up my mind to make it happen this time.

Made up my mind and because of the need.

Made up my mind because of what I believe.

Made up my mind to not turn back.

Made up my mind to start and to stay on the path.

Made up my mind to keep on pressing on.

Made up my mind to be focused and to be strong.

What I have learned

Not a stranger to as adversity.

Not a stranger to challenge.

Not a stranger to opposition.

Not a stranger to resistance.

What I learned is………

There is a lesson in everything.

What I have learned is when you lean and depend on God, He will bring you through.

What I have learned is when you lean and depend on God, He will give you strength.

What I have learned is when you lean and depend on God He will give you courage.

I have learned to look up instead of looking down.

I have learned that there is a blessing in the pressing.

I have learned not give up.

I have learned that I can keep learning,

As long as I am open,

As long as I am willing,

And as long as I am available and desire to learn.
