SUCCESS COMES IN CANS; FAILURE COMES IN CANT'S



I AM ALL FOR CANS!!!!! Aren't you?????


WILL----Used to express desire, choice, willingness, consent.

WAY----The course traveled from one place to another, a series of actions, or sequence of events leading in a direction or toward an objective.

MY OBJECTIVE IS TO MAKE GOD'S WILL, MY WAY.


PHILIPPIANS 4:13

I CAN DO ALL THINGS through CHRIST which strengtheneth me.


AND we can if we keep looking to the Lord for our strength. The way may not be easy. In fact it may get very hard. There may seem like there is just no way to get to our goal but God says that there is. I WILL BELIEVE HIM! We may fail when we want so bad to succeed. But we can only fail if we QUIT. The last few months have been very trying to me. I will not go into all the whys and wherefores but God gives the VICTORY!!! We will go on and look toward that day when all things will be made right and if what we call success is not what God calls success then we will be content to have done our best.

I have begun again this week to keep up better with what the scales say. Please pray for me, I can not lose very much at a time or I will have serious other problems. I have to learn patience in this area, I now know. I have always thought of patience in other areas but I know now, I just have to take it SLOW and STEADY! You know like the turtle (laughing out loud) I have never seen myself as a turtle, I like to go and get it done. When I was young, I was able to go at weight loss this way but it is not the way the Lord has for me now. So, I WILL submit to His will and do it His way. I have come to realize that is why the Lord led me to start this blog anyway. He knew the trials that I would have to go through. So, my objective has not changed: To make God's WILL, my way.

I will be writing on this blog at least once a week, maybe more as God leads. I have learned so much coming here and letting you see my heart. In my letting you see, I have seen more clearly. I must say thank you for being so patient with me and for the encouragement you are to me.

I will see you soon especially as I am able. Have a good weekend, remember your goals as I will mine. I have some things that can make me forget them in the next few days if I let my flesh take control. I will remember that "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." I will remember that "Success comes in CANS: Failure come in can'ts.
Keeping my eyes on the goal, connie

"K", I am so happy to meet you. I will look forward to your success. You are so young, I pray that when you get to your "journeys" end that you will be able to not have to go this way again. God bless you, Young lady. connie

"We will go on and look toward that day when all things will be made right and if what we call success is not what God calls success then we will be content to have done our best." Ok, this is going on my fridge! I have trials as well that make me need to be slow and steady...but I feel like a snail istead of a butterfly wanna be :) I just have to keep my eyes on Jesus! Father please help us continue to walk closely to You and hold us tight.
God Bless you Connie!

Dear Domestically Inclined, thank you so much for your encouragement. I think often time, we do feel much like a snail. I think the snail is good in that it goes slow enough to "smell the flowers" so to speak. The trials that come to our life, last longer and are felt more deeply, I think because of our slow pace,but the good times can be appreciated so much more and we can learn so much more the lessons of life that we are being taught. So, Lets be a snail together and just keep our eyes on the Lord and He will take us to where we need to be. Thank you agin, connie
