Monday Morning Motivation "Faith"

   I am always looking for quotes.  Quotes from famous people, from the homeless on the street just trying to survive, and all of us in-between just trying to make sense of life.  I was watching The Biggest Loser on HuLu the other day.  These folks face a difficult challenge.  Trying to lose a lot of weigh and make difficult life style change.  Its tough because when you reach a low it is hard to crawl back to the top again.
   It is pretty much the same with an unwanted life event.  It could be a health issue, the loss of a job, the death of a loved one or in my case an unwarranted and unnecessary separation.  Suddenly your life plans and goals and dreams are shattered.  You find yourself confused not knowing how to pull yourself up again.
   Sonya on the Biggest Loser puts it this way…"Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I respond to it".  I don't know if I agree with the percents but I do agree with the thought.  Getting through and getting by and even growing stronger in our faith and in our lives is all about how we respond to adversity.   I believe that you can achieve great things even through difficulties by learning from others, by putting one foot in front of the other day by day, and by leaning heavily on your faith.

  1. Amen, sister! amen! I cannot tell you how much god has grown me in so many ways on this journey. The least of which is not TOTAL dependence HIM! He is my EVERYTHING! and as I have learned to lean more on Him, He has responded with such love, forgiveness, help, and blessings I cannot even believe it half the time! this doesn't mean it will always "feel" like this, but the lessons I am learning about His ENDLESS faithfulness are lessons I would not trade for anything!
