God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

Let Go and Let God!   Let go and let God carry your cares, because He cares for you. Sometimes this is easier said than done. We tend to want to hold onto our “cares” and problems, perhaps feeling like if we let go, we are not in control, and that allows fear to enter the picture. But I think that’s the point: we need to recognize and understand when we’re struggling and overwhelmed, we really are NOT in control…

Turning Negatives Into Positives – Is It Possible?

Turning Negatives Into Positives – Is It Possible?

From Negative to Positive?   [**NOTE** I first shared this post back in March, but with all the worldwide events taking place – from wild weather events, to political unrest, to wars and conflicts and atrocities… it seemed appropriate to share it again!]   This has to be one of the more difficult situations in life to manage: Experiencing a negative situation or a host of negative circumstances, and holding onto the belief there will some how be positive outcomes…

Pursuing Power by Prioritizing Prayer

Pursuing Power by Prioritizing Prayer

Want to feel empowered? Prioritize prayer and watch God work! 🙂 Imagine going through an entire day without speaking to your significant other or another loved one in your life. Maybe you don’t have to imagine it, if there is an unpleasant situation occurring and neither of you are speaking to one another. This just engenders hurt feelings and drains your energy, and certainly damages the relationship. Yet when you make amends with one another, you usually feel energized again…

God Cares About the Big AND Little Details in Our Lives

God Cares About the Big AND Little Details in Our Lives

Don’t bother God with little things… Oh wait, yes, DO! 🙂 I’m glad prayer is not a complicated ritual. At least in my upbringing as a Christian in a Baptist church — I was taught praying was simply having a conversation with Father God. Giving Him all due respect, but also recognizing Him as a compassionate Father Who eagerly waits to hear from us. Since my beloved Dad (the inspiration for this blog) fulfilled this role so well, it was…
