Thank you for the coaching

I had a coaching session with Barbara this evening and it was great as usual. Very progressive indeed and it gives me more fuel for my fire.

Hope to keep up this momentum and translate it into my course too. Lord, thank You for today and for Barbara's generosity. I really do appreciate it very much.

Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

To Happiness

I just finished a Lee Child book and yes, I am in love once again. With his main character Jack Reacher who is a larger-than-life character with no ties and no boundaries when it comes to justice. He takes the law into his own hands and it kind of describes the way I feel these days about one's happiness. Waiting for others to approve of your actions or decisions is a sure way to live in low-level discontent. One might not be miserable but you are never really happy to the point of being carefree and just gleeful.

So these days I have stopped looking to tick boxes for happiness and the good Lord Himself knows that I will not be unscrupulous in my pursuit of happiness per se; but I will no longer allow convention and seeming common sense tie me down any longer. Life is too short to fill it with discontent and frustration. To joy, freedom and happiness in Christ, Amen!

Thank You, Lord for today, Amen!

Thank you for today, Lord

I haven't written here for a few days now; just plain laziness, I think. Well, I am reading a Lee Child book at the moment and I am now very hooked by the very male Jack Reacher who is one tough guy. I have to go to bed soon though since I am wilting. Went to school today after school so it has been quite a long day.

Still pressing on though I feel as if I have been cut off from the rest of the world somehow. Strange feeling but I press on and do my best to fulfil my calling in all areas of my life. Lord, I thank You for all things and for the fact that You are more real than even my very breath.
Thank You for today as well, Amen.

All is well

All is well in my world today, not because I have had significant breakthroughs. All is well because of the Lord who is helping me become a more focused person, who is learning how to be organized and sure of her Heavenly Father's Help and Direction in all things.

Lord, I give glory to Your Name, Amen.

In all things, give thanks, Nana

It has been a very frustrating afternoon and evening for me, especially this evening. Had to cook and was planning to have a very fruitful afternoon reading and relaxing but I had to do a lot of talking to to the boys and it was just very unpleasant and frustrating for me. Then I tried to do some detective work which didn't yield much and then I tried googling Julia Cameron and Barbara Sher and at long last the evening began to look up a bit.

Still feel a bit cheated and defeated about not getting much done for myself but I thank God for discovering another website to visit instead of Yahoo sports.

Lord, in all things I have to give thanks indeed. You are Good and You are God!
Thank You, for today, Amen.

Finally the builders have arrived

The builders finally arrived today and we have been in complete disarray. Thankfully we had something ad hoc to eat and everyone has had a bath and we can all go to bed in peace.
I am just going to have a bath and just go to bed. Lord, thank You for Your grace indeed.

If you want to write

I am feeling so cold tonight and almost went up without posting something here tonight. Progress again today as I continue to declutter and continue my reading/ self-study. Reading a book by Brenda Ueland which is a bit like Julia Cameron's type of writing, which I absolutely love.

Bought some clothes for the boys today which means that I will not be going shopping for clothes in a while except, of course if the money should come!

Lord, thank You for Your love and Your favour and for daily progress, Amen!

Making progress daily

I have been tidying up and decluttering today as well as reading and it feels good. Managed to do some cooking too; not too much in the way of writing or to be very honest about it, no writing at all. I did paste some images into my scrapbook though so quite pleased with myself today.

I am beginning to classify my daily activities into low-value and high-value items so that I can implement more of the 80/20 rule into my life. Seems to be working so far and I am grateful for that very much.

Daily progress and living simply while waiting on the Lord for the big breakthroughs.
Lord, I thank You once again for today, Amen and Amen.

Many thanks

Another day to be thankful for. This evening has kind of ebbed away but I did manage to do a few things so I shouldn't complain. A few paperwork things that I got out of the way that I should be relieved about.

As for the writing, we keep pressing on and hoping for the best.
Lord, thank You once again for today, Amen.

Back to school

Today was the first day back in school and it was cool. Settled in quickly and went about my work. I guess being focused is good for every area of my life. Lord, help me keep my focus at all times and keep calling on Your Greatness and Glory, Amen.
Thank You, Father for today, Amen.

Keeping the faith

Yesterday I found out about what I perceive to be an ultimate betrayal. Thankfully, I had dreamt about it already so I just felt numb for a few seconds and then very grateful that I had been prepared for this act. I have been praying for the person involved and thanking God for the manifold breakthroughs to come this year.

I feel I am much more congruent now, in that my faith in God is stronger than ever. I have no one else to look up to or ask for help, except Him. So I believe, I trust, I have faith and I will keep believing, keep trusting and keep fuelling my faith; for indeed as He says in His Word, with Him all things are possible indeed, Amen.

Thank You, Lord for prophetic dreams, Amen and thank You for another day of glory, Amen.

A writing-fulfilled 2011.

Hoping for a very fruitful and blessed 2011 in terms of the writing, Father.
Thank You for another year, Amen.
