Ever wish you could just plug a flash drive into your ear, and download all the negative thoughts, that are scrolling across your mind like a marquis?
I feel like that today!
Earlier, I felt like I needed a marquis because I was going to the doctors office, and I couldn’t remember if I took a left or a right. I told the woman at check in that I wish I had a marquis to remember some of the stuff in my head.
I would like to revoke that statement right now for $5000 Alex!
What if we were walking around and people could read those negative thoughts. Imagine what kind of life we would live?
I think it would go like this:
People would realize that we all think those negative things. That they attack us all every day. They may be different ones at different times, but I garuntee (spelling intentional) people would live a less superficial life.
We try so very hard to live up to a standard that someone supposedly set. Who was that exactly? I don’t recall them shouting it from the rooftops!
What if we lay down the belief that we are the only one suffering with them, and pick up the belief that God knew humanity would need His WORD, and not ours, to combat them?
I think our thoughts would glorify God, and our lives would show others that we are not trying to be something we are not able to be without Him.
Every Wednesday, join me here for a W.O.R.D. to combat the negative with Wise Up Wednesday!
See you then, and remember…
Beloved, Hope Endures!

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
