Run Your Race Intentionally



One of my favorite quotes comes from the late Ruth Bell Graham. Years before her passing she said that when she died, she wanted these words written on her tombstone. "End of construction. Thank you for your patience." So simple, yet so true! 

You are a work in progress. I am a work on progress. We even see that Paul in the book of Philippians admits he too was a work in progress. Realize that NO ONE here on earth has "arrived" yet. We are all under-construction. Just because you have areas in your life that God continues to renovate doesn't mean you're not growing and changing more and more into Christ's image. 

Please don't get discouraged; we are all a work in progress until the day we make it to heaven. If you didn't know it yet, God is in the construction business and you are part of His project. Forget the past. Focus on the future. Do you hear that? Christ is calling after you.


Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! Do something kind today, be nice to others, and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

 "Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be! Have a blessed day! 

Blessings,
Candye~

Turnarounds Are Okay!

Tuesday's are made for turnarounds!

When you stop trying to do things on your own, learn to rely on God, you'll find your dreams in the horizon become much more clear and easier to reach.

I challenge you to commit yourself to God to diligently doing whatever it takes to getting to the place He's called you to be, even if it requires a turnaround!

"Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!" - Anne Frank
Anne Frank was 14 years old when she wrote this while hiding for her life from the Nazis. What's your excuse?

Monday Motivation

We serve the God of the breakthrough—the God of the impossible! There is nothing you are facing today He will be surprised by. He has the answer, and in many cases, it is already on its way. 

Please don't try to cope on your own. Invite Him into your problems, small and large. Sometimes you will get an instant miracle and other times a slow recovery. 

Regardless, wake up, pray & slay the day! Have a magical Monday!

He's A Chain Breaker....


What a glorious day to be alive!! I woke with an old church choir course in my soul... 

Whatever you're dealing with just know that the Bible promises #JesusSaves and #Restores. 

If you've got pain, He's a pain taker. If you're lost, He's a way maker. If you need freedom, saving or struggling, He's a Savior and chain breaker. 

Never forget...you're worth it

"And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you."
(‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:10‬)

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Investing In You...



Good morning! 

Time to rise & shine! I think it's a double-shot of coffee kind of morning! 

Quick tip: There are 4 things you cannot recover in life: the stone after it's thrown, the word after it's said, the occasion after it's missed and the time after it's gone. 

Knowing this, let's strive to make the most of today. To invest in ourselves, starting with growing and developing our relationship with Christ. 

Remember, if God woke you, He's not finished with your story yet! 

The common denominator to the most meaningful relationships we have is the time we have invested in them. The Bible speaks of friends interacting as "iron sharpening iron," and God is spoken of as a friend that is closer than a brother. In order to develop a relationship, there must be a willingness to commit our time. 

Having a quiet time is much more than checking something off your spiritual "to do" list. It is growing an intimate and personal relationship with the God who created us. 

We must trust that He loves us and has chosen us to follow Him and become like Him. But there's another critical reason why we must take seriously a time set apart to meditate on the Scriptures and to pray. 

Investing in quality time with God is instrumental and the first step in investing in ourselves. It is critical in ensuring we never get stagnant and lose focus of our purpose. 

I pray you have an amazingly blessed day! Never forget "you're worth it."

Have a blessed day!

Friday Faith - Answered Prayers



Are you praying for something specific? 

Do you feel like your prayers are not being heard or that they may be doing a little 'ceiling bouncing?' 

Let me give you a little Hope this morning! 

God has given us His promises because He wants to fulfill them. Be they promises of peace, restoration, healing, or for material supply, we must keep in mind that the Lord would not have promised it if He did not want to do it. (Hebrews 10:23)

My husband and I prayed for over 18 years before we received our answer. 

Like Sarah in the Bible, most of us are waiting for something and we are neither hopeless nor helpless while we wait. But it doesn't often feel that way in the waiting.  Nobody drifts to the top of a mountain; it takes planning, discipline and effort to climb. It takes Faith

There is much to be done in concert with God and others while we wait for our dreams and more importantly, God's design for us. 

Sarah's dream came true and she spent 37 years with her own, birthed son, Isaac. (She lived to 127.) If you expectantly wait on God and your dream comes true you will revel in His provision and answer. If you complain, develop a bitter spirit, focusing on all the years in the waiting, you may miss the blessing. 

When I see Him face to face, God will not apologize for not fulfilling my expectations or desires, be it marriage, job, or having a child in this life. Instead, he will ask me, "While you were focused on these things, did you see any of the blessings I sent you?" 

Indeed, when I focus on the "big things" I want, I tend to take for granted and miss the daily blessings God sends me. When I focus on gratitude for what I already have, and the blessings that arrive daily, I find myself living with more joy, which is contagious. 

Can we wait and rest in the security of God's timing and plan, His way?  

Waiting is most definitely hard! However, we must remember that He is capable to perform miracles, if necessary, to accomplish His goals in our lives, and sometimes miracles simply cannot happen overnight. Sometimes there is a preparation that has to occur to get us ready for our miracle. 

I'm reminded in the Bible that He wanted and did answer Sarah's prayers to bear her own child.  

Can you imagine the sweetness of joy as Sarah held her answer given to her through impossible means by her magnificent God?  Only 50 years of waiting could have produced such contagious, glorious joy!  And I'll bet she would say "It was a miracle worth the wait!". I know I did when we received our miracle after 18 years! 



What are you waiting for? Take hope in knowing that we serve a Mighty God that knows best. We have to learn to trust Him, rely on Faith and never give up Hope! 

I pray as you lay awaiting on your miracle that you don't miss the opportunity to celebrate the smaller blessings around you. 

I pray you have an amazingly blessed day! 

Blessings,
Candye~

You Are Enough!


Time to rise & shine! 

Get up every morning and throw aside the curtain of doubt. Brush past that foggy film that clouds your vision from seeing what is right in front of you and embrace expectancy.

It is the breaking of a new day. It is the establishing of fresh opportunities and unlimited possibilities that await you! 

Never forget.....You are worthy! You are enough! 

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Beautifully and Wonderfully Made...




Good morning!! Oh how excited to be able to share with you this morning! I love waking up....beats the alternative! 😂 


Here's a little Monday Motivation for you: Don't let the world make you think you're not beautiful. You are! It's not what's on the outside that counts, it's what's on the inside. Self-confidence is the best thing one can put on daily! 


I'm teaching my daughter that it's proven beauty fades, but a sincere, humble, genuine & loyal heart will last forever! Be the kind of person you want others to see in you. 


Now, GO! Be the awesomeness God designed you to be!! Make memories & make today count!  


"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day." (2 Cor. 4:16)


"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." (Proverbs 31:30)


Have a blessed day!
