What is REACHING OUT ?
One day at a time, inspired by God & in memory of “Wendy E.. who told me on Sunday 5th January 1986 write everything down – god will perform miracles.
Since that day nearly 32 years ago, so many things have happened. Challenges in my journey of life. I often thought what Wendy said to me that day was only about my Princess ( my second daughter born with Down Syndrome) but the lord has opened up many doors even memories that he has healed and walked through with me.
Life is challenging and god can do so many things, I had been encouraged to Journal too, well getting out pen n paper sometimes seems to be a drag, I love working with Graphics & Colours. Over the years I started learning to play with websites, so I made my own little graphic for my work. It has been updated to 2017 seeing I use it more now.
Time went on and the lord kept giving me the words Reaching Out, well there is a lot of sites named this. I thought about blogging it could help heal many things in my life and may even encourage others in similar circumstances.
One day at a time , walking the walk with Jesus by my side – Is self explanatory taking One day at a time and walking my life with Jesus by my side MY BEST FRIEND, TEACHER, PROVIDER .. MY EVERYTHING ..
Over the years due to anxiety issues I would write these words down on majority of things it’s helped me work through issues, . ” One day @ a time, if you can’t handle a day, then one hour at a time, or a minute or second.” ie: if you cant think too far ahead or handle stuff too far ahead ..slow down rest in god and take whatever time YOU NEED to heal n Grow, Looking at a negative that it could be a challenge asking What can I learn from this.
** UPDATE 2017 : There has been so many challenges in my journey of life, that I have become so dependant upon my faith & Jesus has never let me down. He has only helped me grow more and more and change for the better… Yes I’m still learning and always will. Learning from my Parents, Family & Friends but more so from the WORD OF GOD… the bible and working on living a life of Worship especially through the battles.
Earlier this year (it was the evening of my Baby Girl KC funeral) I was sharing some things with one of my granddaughters.. BJ and she said NAN you should write a book about what Jesus has done.. I will read it and if its good we will get it published” Well she isn’t the first to say to me about a book .. Maybe one day my writings might go that direction. At this time though they will remain here. To Glorify one and one only…..
Jesus my saviour – I have a personal relationship with him. And the Battle Belongs to the LORD – so I will continue to walk day by day with him by my side, learning to hand it to him.
