Thoughts From My Heart to Your’s

thoughts-from-my-heart-to-yours

Hello Dear Friends,

This week I realized that it’s been a long time since I wrote a Friday morning post. I stopped those back in March when I began caring for a newborn + my little guy. My life was just a bit too busy then. However, I’ve missed those extra posts as well as the opportunity to share more of my heart with you, my readers. So I decided to write a post for today.

What you will read is truly from my heart. The thoughts in the rest of this post are things I have been contemplating the past few weeks (and days). This is the way I love to write. Scribbling random thoughts and happenings… letting words have free course. This kind of writing makes me happy.

Thoughts…from my heart.

My Father is more than enough for me. He will always be faithful and true.

Grace is such a beautiful word. God has given me so much grace… I should be willing to extend it to others as well.

Peaceis the sweet & lovely calm that characterizes the heart of a trusting child. My Father knows best. When I trust him He gives me peace.

Faith over fear. God has never said He will remove my fears, instead He says to “be strong and courageous”, “fear not”, and “be still”. It’s my responsibility to surrender my fears to Him. Surrendering fear always takes faith.

Wisdom is something I need. I am so thankful my Father will give me wisdom when I do my part and ask.

Prayer should not be looked at as a duty, but a privilege. Prayer is the key that unlocks the door to my Father’s presence.

Virtue is the trait I want to possess. The Proverbs 31 woman is my role model. Some days the ideal she sets forth seem so unattainable.

Joy can be experienced at any time. It comes from spending time with my Heavenly Father, trusting Him and resting in Him. The joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10)

Happiness is not as important as joy. But, I can still choose to be happy.

Radiance begins on the inside but is seen on the outside. Radiance comes from having a beautiful, Christlike heart. A happy spirit and a healthy body play a big part too.

Busyness is over-rated. God wants me to be productive but not so busy that I don’t have time for Him or adequate rest.

The Future is unknown, as it always is and will be. It’s exciting and a bit scary at the same time. Once again, faith over fear.

Piano is like therapy. When I’m stressed, confused or even bored… I play.

Toddler Hugs and Snuggles make my heart smile. A big squeeze from the little guy and my world feels right again.

Missing far away friends is the heart’s way of saying I care.

In the Morning His mercies are new.  Quiet moments in the Word, journaling, and praying make this my favorite part of the day.

In the Evening when the sun goes down, He still remains. And then He gives His beloved sleep.

“Keep thy Heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23
