Preparing for the best…

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.

Tell your story
Share the miracles
If you do even more miracles will happen!
Have you ever considered that this is one way to ‘pay it forward’?
Sharing the right words at just the right time can change someones day… it can change your day!

The fires that we want to fuel are fires of hope, peace, faith, love, joy….

One way to fuel these fires is by piling our testimony on the fire, sharing the breakthrough, the miracle, the small mercies and the answers that we found, the ways that God came through for us, the way He cared about all the little details of our lives and that he worked in our situation like only He could!

When we remind ourselves of the breakthroughs and miracles in our own stories we put fuel on our very own fire.

And boy, do we ever need to keep our home fires burning.
Don’t let the fire go out.

Fuel the fire with God’s word, with great music, with inspiring messages, with good company!
In doing all these things we are building our own faith and paving the pathway to our own destiny!

Romans 1:12

That is, that we may be mutually strengthened and encouraged and comforted by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
When we hear each others stories, then we see the love of God in action and we are once again encouraged that He will continue to work His miracles in our lives!

The one…

The one…

One by one people’s lives can be touched… one by one….

I love helping people one on one making them feel cared for.

God always brings me the one, and then the next ‘one’ so I can encourage and walk along their journeys with them.

It’s such a blessing to love people one by one.

There will always be the ‘one’ and then the next ‘one’ in my life.

And each and every ONE is special to me, bonded to my heart ♥

Keep loving the ‘ones’ that God brings along to you!

One by one ♥
