WILW: Thankful

Don't forget to go and link up with Jamie!

Today, I want to focus on being thankful.  Thankful for second chances.  Yesterday I had a heavy post that led to several emails and texts making sure I was okay.  Those are the people that truly exemplify what a real friend consists of.  And for those of you who made the effort to reach out, a big THANK YOU to you. 

Now today I have no plans on harping on what that issue was about, or even really explaining.  It has crossed my mind over and over and over again since it occured and I'm still at a loss for how to fix things. 

But I know the only solution I can do is keep praying about it.  God knew it was coming and He let me put my foot in my mouth.  As hard as I want to be upset that something like this could happen on God's watch, I know He had a reason for it.  Whatever that reason is.  So I'm trusting in Him on this one. 

I am one of those girls who uses my Facebook status to portray my feelings, either directly or indirectly.  So last night I was trying to come up with something to use, and I stumbled acorss something I haven't looked at in quite awhile.. The Proverbs 31 Wife.  I got to thinking about how God let me see that page right then and there for a reason. 

The title of the first entry on the page was "Speak for Good."  I immediately went to pieces and cried before I could even read the entry.  And before I was even done I knew I was changing.  For the better, I hope. 

I have a tendency of putting my foot in my mouth and always at the wrong time.  Always.  And I'm going to work on that.  I always say I will, but this time is different.  When you see yourself standing in a position that could cost you something precious, something changes.  Reality is faced and you can take a long hard look at yourself.

So today, I'm Loving....
The new woman I will become.  I'm still going to be me, but a better version.  A stronger version.  A woman who will trust in her God a little better than she has.  A woman that will face each day's problems and settle them before bed so the next day is a brand new gift.  No burden needs to be carried from one day to the next.  Life is too short and way too precious to sit in sorrow and guilt.   Accept your flaws, Admit your faults, and Actively change your actions for the good.    That's my new motto.

Well, that's it for me today.. be sure and go link up!

"Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.” ~ John 14:27.
