Sunday - Quotes to Ponder #12 - Change





Happy Sunday
Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you planning
something fun for Valentines
Day or maybe even celebrating 
early since it will be here before
we know it.........


Here's the quote for today!

“We want God to change
 situations. 
God wants to change 
us in them.” 

     ― Wayne StilesWaiting on God:        
 What to Do When God Does Nothing



Ewwww......This is something we 
typically do not want to hear..........
Am I right!  lol

But...............

I think it is so true....
so many times.....
I call it God's school room.........
 He always has something to teach
 us in almost every situation, so it
makes sense  for us, to be looking
for what He has to teach us, cause
many times they reveal ways we
are not trusting Him, and they
are usually life changing.


I have another quote that sort

of speaks to this as well,  it is by
 Leslie Gould, The Amish Nanny.

"Sometimes God calms the storm,
and other times God lets the storm
rage and calms his child.
 in the storm."



I have experienced both, and bet
 you have too, if you think about it.

So next time a situation or a storm 
comes along.....
remember Romans 8:28......and
it will help you to remember that

" in all things God works 
for the good of those who love him,
 who have been called according to
 his purpose."

It always helps me to remind myself 
of what this verse says, and then
to look for that good He promises.


Happy Pondering!

I've been doing a LOT of pondering lately!

Have a blessed Sunday, Nellie.

Dear Nellie, you made me start pondering the Love GOD has for us and we have for each other

1 John 4:16 tells us "So we know and rely on the Love GOD has for us. GOD is Love. Whoever lives in love lives in GOD, and GOD in them."

1 Thessalonians 4:9 continues with, "...for you yourselves have been taught by GOD to love each other."

2 Thessalonians 1:3 shares, "...your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing."

1 Peter 1:22 further says, "...you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply from the heart."

1 John 3:11, commands, "For you have heard this message from the beginning, 'We should love one another.' "

And finally, GOD's WORD says in 1 John 4:7, "Dear friends, let us love one another for love comes from GOD. Everyone who loves has been born of GOD and knows GOD."

I think that Valentine's Day is a day we can celebrate the Love GOD has for us and in turn the love we have for family and friends! I love you all, Susan

HI Dazee,
HI Dazee,
Thanks for coming by to visit, Just came over to visit you and see that you are sick and hope you aren't feeling too badly.
My hubby was sick the week before last all week, and that is rare for him, and somehow I managed not to get it....I seriously think it was the prayers for me. Since you asked
about flu shots.....
I got a flu shot when I was like 19 cause they were free and it caused me get the flu, so I never got one again..........lol

Hope you have a good today too, and a Happy Valentines Day as well.
Blessings, Nellie

Sending up a prayer for you right now.
