Great day, good people! Just a quick note. I am stealing away during the season of Lent. There will be no postings from Journey of Jewels until after Easter. Need a little boost of encouragement in the meantime? Check out previous posts of inspiration by clicking on the following:
Monday Motivation: “It’s not easy trying to please everybody. Nor is it possible. It’s exhausting and wasteful. The truth? You’ve spent too much time jumping hurdles and turning backflips for those who drain the promises living in you. Coworkers, family members, and friend circles have held your purpose hostage for far too long. Change your story. Escape your weary mindset. Walk away from harmful spaces. Dare to chase after and clinch the determination God is stirring up in you. It’s a new season, a new day. A new beginning fixed on pleasing God, the Almighty. Change your story. God is your help. You Shall Live!”
Monday Motivation: “Your ability to get from one day to the next lives in your thoughts. How you respond to negative attacks against you; How you choose to love instead of hate; How you participate in effective change rather than rally others to confusion; How you courageously wait on the whisper of God before considering reckless judgment; How you move forward to resist temptation. It’s all contingent on the thoughts filling your mind. Our thoughts are where life takes flight, especially in challenging times. Our thoughts can also lead us to perpetual unrest. Protect yourself. Guard your thoughts. Feed them with the wisdom of God’s words. You Shall Live!”
Monday Motivation:“Those once ignored and invisible. Buried under strife and systems of inequity. Are now visible in plain sight. Sharing uncomfortable journeys of becoming God’s great work. His masterpiece. No more feeling small. No more settling for less than what God planned for you long ago. You are destined to experience more than you can imagine. Trouble don’t last always. God is doing a great work in you! You shall live!”
