Just be Thankful...

HAPPY Marvelous Monday!

And that is weird considering the way I started my day...
because I started my day off crying...why you ask?
Because there has just been so much going on, and I have just kept moving and moving...so today this morning...I finally let it out and released it...and I feel so much better

I think it started once I decided NOT to let myself become stressed about every situation and just accept them for what they are...

but then yesterday I just had this extreme NEED to go to church...now I belong to a church and I attend church on the regular, BUT I hadn't been in a while since so much had been going on...and although I was extremely tired I decided I AM GOING!

So I went and as always I was totally blessed by what happened!

The pastor talked about just being grateful...he said he wanted to talk about the anniversary of the Rodney King beating, and other issues, but that the Lord placed on his heart that we needed to be grateful...

he talked about how so many times, we want to sit and complain about what is going WRONG in our lives and we don't want to talk about WHERE we currently ARE...(READ:WHAT's RIGHT IN OUR LIVES)

Like if you sit back and think about it, you may still be struggling in relationships or financially or whatever, but if you REALLY sit and think about it, you aren't where you were FIVE years ago, you aren't were you where ONE year ago...

Like seriouly think about it...literally take a minute or two to think about it

Ok so you see how GOOD your life really is...

So the moral of the story was that if you take the moments out to be Thankful, and you work towards your connection with GOD and you build your faith...HE will continue to MOVE in your life far BEYOND what you think he could ever do or he WILL do things in your life FAR beyond what you can ever imagine....

so take time to just sit back and appreciate what Jehovah GOD has done for you in YOUR life...even something as small as how beautiful the moon looks in the distance at night when its full...I mean if he can make sure that the trees and the birds are wonderfully taken care of, he will SURELY do the same for you...


The prayer that is on Jus.B.Fli's page today...really says it all...

Stay up people...

I loved the prayer that was on JB"s blog so much cause that's how you have to be. Just be thankful for what's going in the hear and now even if you don't think that it's getting better cause the reality is that God has a purpose and reason for everything...it will ALL work out for our good...although I dont cry too often I get some great sleep afterward and I think of my tears as rain cause I always feel cleansed and better after I release a few :)

run tell dat baby girl cause this post here is the truth...

i read the poem and your posts certainly compliment each others.

i know a few people who really need to stop the "woe is me" type attitude. granted, you get dealt a bad hand, but look for the goodness in the bad situation and you'll see that there's a lesson to be learned. moreover, God is doing what He needs to do to help you get right and if you can't see that, then there'll always be drama.

@honey-a good cry is always good for the soul...I needed to just let some things OUT...get them off of my chest, OFF and OUT of my heart...so that I can breathe easy...like you said I felt cleansed and better...

@jus.b.fli-I am so HAPPY that I inspire you, because YOU totally inspire me...that's the gift of this thang called "sisterhood" its a constant circle of inspiration that keeps uplifted and moving....we WILL have a PHENOMENAL week and NOT because of US, you are SO right about that!

@blu-we HAVE to stop the "woe is me" attitude...because if we just sit and wollow we will MISS OUR OWN BLESSINGS...if you can't see the Sun for the clouds you will NEVER experience the sunshine...
You stay up and don't work to hard
