#WhatIfWednesday: Ever have one of those days?

X posid, Jousting

Let’s face, we all run into those crazy days when you need the extra energy to get back up from whatever attacks you physically, spiritually, mentally, or emotionally. It takes every bit of energy you can muster to get up and stand when you felt like you’ve been in a jostling match.

Then there are other times when you feel like you’re in a tug-of-war with something or someone. There will always be someone ahead of you trying to push you back. Then, there are those behind you trying to pull you back. 

No matter how much we are tugged, pushed, pulled or beaten down, we try to find the courage to use every ounce of energy to brace ourselves, to get back up, brush ourselves off, and stand with conviction.

Today on What If Wisdom Wednesday: Focus, not Frustration

Linnaea Mallette, Focus, Faith

Do not allow frustration and the fear of failure to defuse your focus and faith.

These days there is a lot of background noise disturbing our spirit and peace.

I believe God can make a way when your path is gripped by blinding dense fog; a way that seems impossible to cross because you’re unable to clearly see the path straight ahead, for you to walk through without fainting.

As the Morning Turns

Inspiration, MALIZ ONG, Trials

A new day…yes here I am, welcoming a new day. As I routinely do, I open my blinds to reveal another morning of life. This morning the sky is filled with low hanging gray clouds, you know the stormy and intimidating kind? Yet, as I comb the mass accumulation up above, a glowing brightness pierces a spot in this dreariness. The bright morning star may be shielded but its presence is not hidden. Then there was a patch drifting above the billows of gray revealing a hole where the blue sky peeked through.

A smile emerged from my lips as a ray of hope pierced through the shadows reminding me that gray storm clouds will certainly come again although they will be different the next time around. Still even the next time, no matter the intensity, those storms will pass away swept by the breath of light and life.

Dark Clouds Cannot Lead Me

Poetry, Dark Clouds

Dark Clouds

There’s a dark cloud following me
a dark cloud over my head
despair surrounding me when I’m awake
disturbing my sleep when I lie in bed

it hovers and follows
but I can never allow it to lead
an ugliness that discourages
like a deep gash in my soul to bleed

for as the dark cloud drifts away
disappearing in the shadows of light
no matter how long it lingers
it only evaporates by the sword of might.

If You Don’t Fit, Don’t Force It

They say you can’t fit a square peg in a round hole.

If you don’t fit in, that may not be the worst thing.

To fit a square peg in a round hole can be damaging on so many levels.

Rejection may actually be a blessing in disguise.

If you don’t fit in the mold, don’t force it.

Boldly embrace your God-given uniqueness.
