Happy National Quilting Day (yesterday) and belated March 21 devotions! Yes, yesterday was one of those days–other things came up, all good, including a few hours out and about, catching up with a hair appointment (last time I had my hair cut was before Christmas!) and doing some errands.
My hubby and I also enjoyed a visit from my middle sister, brother-in-law, and twin 18-year-old nieces, who were up here in Maine checking out a potential university for the girls to attend this fall.
SO, I didn’t have time to blog. Of course, I also didn’t get a chance to QUILT on National Quilting Day, which was kind of a bummer. Some GOOD news, though, is an amazing marketing and advertising opportunity that arose for my K-Lee’s Kreations business…watch for a special announcement on that! 😉
So now, onto the devotions for yesterday, March 21 — and remember to check out Daily Scripture Readings, if you would like to read some Psalms and Proverbs for the day.
“Jesus said to ‘BE confident’ (see John 16:33). He did not say to ‘FEEL confident.’ Start today choosing to be confident in every situation and you will begin driving fear back to Hades where it came from. When Satan tries to give you fear, give it back to him. Stop taking fear and start choosing courage.
Pray: Lord, thank You that You have overcome the world. I will be confident today because I follow You and walk in the victory you have already won. Amen.”
–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”
“Little things are often viewed as being insignificant, but in reality they are very important. They are the spice of life. It is a mistake to be interested only in the main course (big things), disregarding the need for the little things (spices). The main course without spice is bland, tasteless, and unsatisfying.
So if you’ve been overlooking the importance of the little things in life, it’s time to add some spice to your life. What not start now?”
–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”
-1- Being confident vs. feeling confident…that’s a good distinction to make, but sometimes hard to do! I think I often get tripped up in this area, avoiding stepping out or opening a new door of opportunity due to the lack of FEELING confident. This is a good one to ponder and endeavor to act upon!
-2- I really like this one, because I’m someone who appreciates those little things in life. Any kind word or gesture of appreciation, some unexpected gift on no special occasion…many times just the gift of someone’s time and conversation is meaningful and often just what is needed on a particular day.
So what are YOUR thoughts? Do you struggle with BEING confident because you don’t FEEL confident?
Do you overlook the “little things” in life that mean a lot, or are you someone who appreciates those little things that add spice to life?
