The past few weeks has been from one challenge to the other.
When it looks like I'm getting out of one another surfaces.
This afternoon while I was driving to go do my business, my car had a break failure and ran into a bus, the usual me would have been so downcast devastated worried sad crying .... but I choose to be thankful.
Thankful that I'm not hurt in anyway.
Thankful that I didn't hit anybody in the process
Thankful for I know it could have been worse
Thankful for I know the stormy days are over.
Thankful for I know that better days are here.
Thankful for the support system I have
Who is actually inspired by success itself? I’m inspired by the true, genuine women who admit it is dang hard being a woman of God in this world who won’t sway her behavior and verbiage to what’s most acceptable at the moment, to succeed. I’m inspired by smiles after tears, the women battling on their knees, and the ones who never give up no matter what anyone throws at her. I’m inspired by the ones continuing to press on, giving hope to other women around them even when they have only a strand of hope to hold on to. I’m inspired by their kind hearts, their positive attitude despite the negativity spewed at them, and their graceful dialogue. You are my #wcw — you beautiful women of God who fight battles no one knows about as you work to pursue your purpose and succeed in glorifying God through it all.
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” 🌿
When you pray for God to make your heart more like his, expect him to show you the ugliest parts of your being. You may discover more wrongs about yourself than you can handle and it can be overwhelming.
It's easy to justify ourselves when being corrected. We can sit in our self righteousness without even knowing. That's what makes pride so blinding. But what a joy it is when you begin to let your pride go.
Allowing God to search our hearts gives room for freedom. You may be surprised how much peace and wisdom you've been lacking. It's all part of the journey. It can be tough but it is so worth it in the end.
So begin to let God take away those rotten things and replace them with his goodness🌾
We celebrated Mom tonight with family & her friends. Even those who could not be here physically were a part of tonight's celebration. After six years each of us are still feeling the void of her presence here on earth. But we also still carry her forever in our hearts❤. #blessed#faithfamilyfriends#virtuouswoman#BWB
