James 1:19-21 New International Version (NIV)
Listening and DoingMy dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

James 1:12 New International Version (NIV)
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him
THIS DAY ~ I WILL NOT QUIT
So many times in life we can have thought of quitting. Quitting things in our lives that we just can not quit. I had times I wanted to quit my job, quit my church, quit a friendship and quit my marriage. Quitting is not an option anymore, except quitting those negative thoughts that run through my brain at times. Life is full of ups and downs. We can grow from mistakes, wish I had moments over and stop the negative thought pattern. We are over comers in this life. We are talk to ask questions in school and raise our hands for someone's attention. Quoting somethings in life, is just not an option.
I remember the stress of answering a telephone in my 30's. I knew it meant a bill collector was on the other end. My husband had fell on a construction site over 40 feet in the air. He had a broken knee, cracked ribs and our lives would change that day. Learning what real financial problems were and I grew into a different person. From this experience alone, I can help others from things I learned. We can take our hardest days and help someone else. We can take our hardest days and look at how God brought us through it.
I'm not saying life is easy or there won't be hard times. Life changes in a day and we are left with blessings, sorrows, new beginnings and the end of somethings. I am an overcomer of yesterdays and so are you. We have gone through things not to make us quit doing what is right, but to continue the race of life God has put us in. People watch our lives and we can become a good example or a negative example. I know some people who just complain about everything and some of their everything someone else wishes they had. Be careful about the things you complain about, because someday, they just might be gone.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I am glad you choose to read my blog and share it. We just never know what someone else is going through today. This is a new day and this is the day God has made. Purpose it a good one! I give thanks to God for brining me through hard stuff and seeing the positive in my life daily. I hope you do that as well.
