4 Ways To Look At Trials

“What you can’t go through, God will help you fly over.”

– Woodrow Kroll

BE STRONG

After Moses had died, God placed Joshua as the next leader. He had already proven himself by his obedience and courage, but that was a bit easier being behind Moses, but now the earthly leadership fell to him. That was a great responsibility, so God tells Joshua to be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:7), for “Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you” (Joshua 1:5). That would make it easier to be strong, right?

Celebrate Bygones


The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
~ Unknown Author ~

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
~ Isaiah 43:18-19 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (smile)  Praise The Lord, all is well in my world. Last week, not so much.  Bygones.

This week, I celebrate bygones. (wink) I just love the power of words and the various and unique ways to express them.

Bygones is like a mantra, for self-encouragement, to illustrate the ability to let go.   Remember casting our cares? Bygones.

Whether it’s yesterday, a year, a month, a day, a hour, it’s the past.  Bygones.

Things happen.   Bygones.   People leave.  Bygones.   Faith tested.  Bygones.

Bygones is that wilderness environment that changes a person.  Bygones teach.

Bygones is the ability to transition between seasons and the process of experience.  Bygones discover.

Disagreements. Challenges. Conflicts.  Bygones learn.

Perception. Contrast. Difference.  Bygones reflect.

Sometimes, speaking bygones out loud controls the tongue in a heated moment.  Bygones.

Bygones  releases yesterday as moved on with hope and faith for today.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend!

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
