Preparing for the best…

lwe hi

Preparing for the best…

There really ain’t no harm in preparing for the best…  Yes I know that the worst can happen, it is possible, but its not always probable, its potential but not necessarily consequential!

I am ‘happy the eternal optimist’, but I am also a realist. I am not taken to wishful dreaming but I do like to believe the best. The last thing I do in most situations is believe that the worst case scenario is likely to happen and even though it could happen I live my life happy and peaceful most of the time because the worst case scenario rarely eventuates and I don’t expect it to. It really is a more pleasant way to live, I am sure the benefits in every way outweigh the negatives.

When I listen to conversations that always head down the road of ‘worst case’ scenario I feel frustrated. I don’t see or understand why we need to give more time at all than necessary to ‘the worst’ things in life. Just knowing that possibly the best won’t happen is all I consider. And even if the best doesn’t happen, then it still doesn’t mean that the worst will!

Why is it that people like to talk about the worst things happening, the negative options? I think it’s because some people revel in it. Its far more juicy than just believing for good, looking for good and hoping for good.

I love that positivity is my outlook, it sure hasn’t hurt me at all… even when the worst has happened. And even when the worst things have happened in my life I know that they will pass. I have been through many seasons where it seemed that the ‘worst’ had happened and that it would never end, but eventually it did and it has been the tendency toward hopefulness that has pulled me out of a pit.

If you struggle to prepare for and expect the best, now really is the best time for you to consider a BIG change in the RIGHT direction.

MyPsalms 37-39 ~ Letters to God

MYPSALMS   37-39

I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!

My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”

MyPsalms 37-39 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)

I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page

MyPsalm 37

Day 37
Read Psalm 37 in your own bible or here: Psalm 37
MyPsalm 37

Dear Lord,

I am so thankful for you. Because of you I know my life’s purpose and meaning.

Our lives are like a drop in a bucket they are so small and short in light of eternity but if our lives are like a drop then even a drop can cause a ripple. And a ripple in your own pond is far better than no ripple at all.

Lord let me hear your voice and know your direction so that I can cause every ripple that you intended me to.

Connect me with others that also have the same purpose and direction so that together we can make waves.

Your plans Lord are great and amazingly woven. Help me to stay in your plans for my life.



MyPsalm 38

Day 38
Read Psalm 38 in your own bible or here: Psalm 38
MyPsalm 38
Dear Lord,
When my heart is stirred up and filled with anxiety, Lord, my stay, you are there and You are peace.When I feel as if my heart is racing ahead of me I come to you Lord and I try to find my place to nestle in the secret place.You know all the things that go on in the deepest parts of me and you understand me regardless of how I may feel.

The truth is that you are in control, of even the fine balance of the world and yet at the same time you hold us in the palm of your hand.

Lord help me to be drawn to you and away from the pull of anxiety.

I relax into you right now Lord and I am so thankful that you are always here with me.


MyPsalm 39

Day 39

Read Psalm 39 in your own bible or here: Psalm 39

MyPsalm 39

Dear Lord,

You amaze me Lord… almost at every turn.

Just when I think I know how wonderful you are… and the bounds of your gifts and creativity… then again the bar is raised by your goodness, your complexity, your plan.

Will we ever truly know or understand Who you are… your heights, depths, breadth?

Will we ever be able to take it all in and still stand in complete awe of who you are?

Will we ever be able to know all the things you saved us from and see the roads you had charted for us?

Will we ever comprehend the magnificence of your love and the sacrifice you made for us?

Help me to take these thoughts with me into every single day of my life.

Let these thoughts be a part of the foundation that you are in my life.

May these reminders always shout aloud to me… calling me to trust.

I love you Lord.


Hope you enjoy the journey!

Sooner or later…

~Sooner or Later~

It would be so much better if you knew sooner rather than later when there is a problem.

Sometimes we know there is something going on but fear sets in.

You may not feel you have the courage at that time to ask what is going on…

What I have learnt is this…don’t wait to ask!

Usually,even if it hurts it’s better to find out…
