Trading My Doubts and Fears for the Lord's Joy!!

I enjoy a great cup of tea and reading my Bible!
~photography by prayer notes~

Good Morning Friends,
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like, if you just sat your cares, worries, and doubts on the altar of the Lord? 
I have wondered.... And, I actually have begun to sit my "everything" on the His altar. The problem is that I tend to go back and stare at them! Yep! I say I'm going to leave them and I do, for a little while. But, if something or someone triggers a thought about the situation, I will sorta' move a little bit closer to the altar and look at the problem, again. However, I've come to a point in my faith, that I do not take it off of the altar, 
but I will stare at it, sometimes! LOL! 
 I don't believe this is how the Lord wants us to live. We must continuously grow our faith. Yes, we may worry, but as our faith grows, we worry less. We begin to understand how great, wonderful and powerful or Lord is. We look back and remember the many trials that He has brought us through. We begin to live...to really live our lives, according to His Word. We begin to see others through His eyes. We begin seeing love, hope and prosperity in ourselves and others. I tell you, it is truly amazing and life-changing!  So, I encourage all of you, this morning,  to place your "everything" on His mighty altar and leave it. 
No peeking! Smiles and blessings!


Scripture to Remember:
Matthew 11:28-30  
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

 
Listen and Rejoice!

I enjoy a great cup of coffee, too, and reading my Bible.

Fundraiser Ended: Helping Each Other is Our Calling


thursday favorite things
By the grace of God, 
we met our goal and more!

UPDATE and END of Donations: WE HAVE RAISED $111.75, SINCE 7 PM, LAST NIGHT, AT THE TIME OF THIS POST. 
OUR GOAL was $100.00
If I had a helper in my art studio, I would continue the fundraising. But, it is just me, so I must get to work and create the bookmarks 
that were purchased. 
Thank you, Joy, Wanda, Pamela and Celestina!






Fundraiser Ended in Great Success!!! 


Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Thankful Tuesday: Another Day, Another Chance


Thankful Thursday

thursday favorite things

I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.

Good Morning Friends,
It is 19 degrees and the snow is falling, here, in Denver! 
But, all is good! My youngest is enjoying his snow day...my eldest is filling-out job applications...my husband is working at home...and, 
I am working in my art studio.  
I hope all of you are having a wonderful Tuesday, no matter the weather. Keep it real and keep it God-focused.  I try to always keep in mind that a new day is another chance to live, explore, learn, praise and enjoy the blessings that God has placed before me! 
What are you thankful for, today or everyday?
