“Choose Joy”..is it just a slogan?

I always hear people say, “Choose joy!” Or see that phrase on many things. But I wonder sometimes, is it just a saying we like to say or do we actually DO it? Maybe it’s just my issue of not being joyful lol. I’m so glad for a new day! The past several days haveContinue reading ““Choose Joy”..is it just a slogan?”

Whoa Sister

Trusting Jesus with everything can be so hard. I start to get frantic with my life and my choices. I get nervous when things do not pan out the way I want them to, and God just kindly whispers “Whoa Sister! Calm down!” and He gently leads me to green pastures of His word.

Anchor’s Ahoy!!

Holding onto the Hope we have in Jesus, will allow us to get through any trial of life. It doesn’t come automatically or easy. But is a daily choice to throw our anchor into the Rock of Ages, Who won’t allow us to be overcome, but instead to be the overcomer. #anchoredinchrist619
