"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

In this day an age none of us can avoid situations that can put us under tremendous amount of stress. Although as Joyce Meyer shares below in an excerpt, we can refuse to let our circumstances dictate how we are going to react and feel.

Easier said than done. Usually my flesh wants to throw a fit when things do not go right. It is like, "I have a right to feel this way." When in fact, I have a right to "control" how I respond to any stress that comes into my life.

"When we approach a circumstance already stressed out, we’re setting ourselves up for misery before we begin. Instead, refuse to allow your circumstances to dictate how you’re going to feel. You may not be able to control the situation, but you can control how you respond to it. Take an offensive approach and decide beforehand what your attitude will be. Then the door will be opened for God to supernaturally help you through your choice to calm down and cheer up." - Joyce Meyer


  1. Good counsel...

    Hugs, JBR

  2. i think i need to tattoo this on my hand so i'll always remember it *grin*. so very true!

  3. Sometimes easier said than done. None the less good advice.

  4. love the picture...I think that it exactly how I feel in response to stress...or when someone is "mean" to me.


  5. Thanks for sharing dear (((JBR))).
    Thanks for stopping by..always appreciate it.

  6. Check this out JBR, they gave me a hard time at work only to force me to work and pick up more hours when they were the ones who took away my hours in the first place. I'm working in a few hours and I dread goin there now. But I'm glad I came by and you reminded me to not be stressed out as the situation is the same. Instead, I should prepare how I would respond to whatever comes my way. I know He knows...that's why I try to give all my worries to Him. Thank GOD!!! Have a great weekend JBR! God bless.

  7. It takes practice to do what Joyce advises, but I believe we can all do it. :)

  8. Love how God confirms things! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Most definitely, easier said than done and while it is good to remind us, sometimes even when I know it intellectually, my heart doesn't grasp the concept.
    one day at a time....
