Don't Wait Until Things Are Perfect To Enjoy Life!

Things will never be perfect. 

But yet, we often tell ourselves that something has to change before we can enjoy our life.

The thing that has to change is our attitudes! 

If we wait for perfect conditions to decide to take charge in our lives, we will be waiting forever. 

Choose to enjoy your life today with your current situations and do your best toward making positive changes..........while still counting your blessings and deciding to seize the day!

John 16:33

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."
Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
Hebrews 4:16

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
1 John 5:14

This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
John 14:27

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

In God's Timing- Not Ours

We want things now- our way. 

We live in a microwave/ fast paced world. 

We want immediate gratification. 

It can be difficult to be patient.............. but if we wait on God, it will be worth it.

What God has in store for our lives is much more than we can do for ourselves.

Do all you can and then wait on God's timing for his part.  




Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

What Are You Feeding Your Mind? Those Thoughts Will Grow

What you focus on will grow.

What you think of and over think will get bigger in your mind.

These feelings will greatly influence how you feel and then it will influence your actions. 

Thus, your thoughts influence your behaviors.

What thoughts are you focusing on today?

Co-Dependency- Learn The Facts

Repeating this post because it is such an important one-


Co-dependency is a learned behavior that often can be passed down from one generation to another. 


It is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects a person’s ability to have a healthy and mutually satisfying relationship.


Co-dependency was first described and termed regarding people being in chemical dependency patterns and those who aided their addictions.


Today it is observed in individuals who are in relationships with chronically or mentally ill individuals as well as any co-dependent person from any type of a dysfunctional relationship.


Individuals who are co-dependent have low self-esteem and tend to look for anything outside of themselves to make them feel better. They progressively develop a sense of reward and satisfaction from “being needed.” 


When the caretaking becomes compulsive of the Co-dependent person, they can feel as if they have no other choice but to help and they are unable to break away from the cycle of dysfunctional behavior.


Individuals who are Co-dependents look at themselves as the victims and are attracted to that same type of weakness and dysfunction in love and friendship relationships.




Some Characteristics of Co-dependent People Are:

They have an exaggerated sense of responsibility for the actions of others.

The can confuse love and pity, with the tendency to “love” people they can pity and rescue.


They feel hurt when people don’t recognize their efforts.


They have an unhealthy dependence on relationships. 

The co-dependent will do just about anything to hold on to a relationship so that they avoid feeling abandoned.


They have an extreme need for approval and recognition.


They do not trust other people.


They have problems identifying their feelings.


They have problems with change, intimacy, and boundaries.


They have anger issues and are often dishonest and indecisive.

If you or someone that you know demonstrates co-dependent behaviors, there is help. Counseling can help.


       Reference- Mental Health America


1 Corinthians 10:13:  “You are tempted in the same way that everyone else is tempted. But God can be trusted not to let you be tempted too much, and he will show you how to escape from your temptations.”
