Just when the photographer was about to take the picture, “OOPS! What’s that on my shoe?” LOL So, I decided I wanted to wear my favorite look of all time (big black ball skirt and a crisp white cotton blouse) and take professional photos. By the way, I’m not actually wearing shoes. I can’t remember why I’m looking down, but I’m glad the photographer, Meka, snapped the pic. Turns out, this is my favorite pic of the bunch. I like it because it’s different!!
And now, tonight’s topic . . .
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6)
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I want to give up on everything I’m doing, put on my favorite holey t-shirt & shorts, get comfortable on the sofa in front of the TV, and eat CAKE!!! Not just any cake. I would eat lemon cake with cream cheese lemon frosting. 😀
The above scripture is one of my go-to scriptures for encouragement. It’s a reminder that I shouldn’t rely on my own strength and abilities because they will land me on my sofa behaving unproductively and more than likely obese from eating too much cake. LOL If I’m thinking about quitting, I’m not focused on Him. I have to trust Him even when I’m tired and keep moving forward.
If you’re thinking about giving up and binging on cake, DON’T! Remember, God will finish the work He began in you too. Trust Him!!
Just blogging it out . . . OH, and Happy Thursday Night!! 😀
Continue to pray!!
