Extending Mercy to yourself...

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Yesterday I blogged about each day a gift from God which is so true. Last night I binged on homemade cookies which is not good with being a diabetic and sabotages my goal of getting healthy. Yet at the same time I was reminded by the Lord that His mercies are new every morning and I need to let go of the guilt factor which brings condemnation. By that I'm not giving myself a license to over indulge anytime I want but the same gift of grace, mercy and love I give to others I need to extend to myself. This morning on YouTube I listened to Russ Taff Be still my soul it was beautiful and soothing. I love that God reminds of His love and mercy in many different ways. I am thankful for a new start today and that I can learn from yesterday and move into grace because of God's love. Jeremiah 29:11 say His plans are not to harm me but to give me a future and reward. May today you extend to yourself the mercy and love you give to others. Have a blessed happy healthy day, Take care... Graced6

Each day a gift...

Friday, January 11, 2013

Each day is a gift from God, we get another chance to make things right with our friends and family. It may not feel or seem like a gift especially if your physically or emotionally challenged. But when you take a day at a time and appreciate that you have the breath of life then you can give something in return. Whether it's a smile, a compliment, a hug or your time to help someone even a listening ear is a gift of love and that's something we should give everyday for the gift we've been given.
