Praying With Patience
Oh how different our lives would be if we "prayed without ceasing!" If we walked so close to Jesus that we consulted Him about everything!
If we treated Him like our Best Friend who we wanted to share our life with. When we rush through our prayers asking for help only when we are in trouble-we don't experience the joy of communing with God.
We also miss out on so many blessings. We need to learn to pray with persistence and patience–waiting for God's perfect answer. Ask God to teach you how to pray–because many times, we truly don't know what to pray for!
Then pray with persistence, never giving up, trusting God to answer - in His time!

So blue as far as the eyes can see. 🌏 Daily vibe - gratitude!: feeling grateful for the opportunities that I've had, rather than stressed as life moves forward, and most of all, enjoying small life wins and being present each and every day. .

Purple sky greeted me today after a big, tiring but fulfilling day in the outskirts of this wide city. It’s a good life, it reminded me. #grateful

Every time I get the honor to step on stage as an IFBB Bikini Pro I feel blessed to have made it to this point in the competitive career, each show I better my package and hope for the best. I work so hard. SO M’FUCKIN HARD. I don’t always need a trophy or a medal to tell me I fuckin SLAYED and came in better. I LOVED my look this show...I have never EVER loved my body as much as I do now, I worked hard as fuck to build this masterpiece ...and with that this ends my 2018 season! #boss

Thank you to all of you!! My AMAZING SUPPORTIVE MOTIVATED DID I say SUPPPORTIVE fit family & team. Some of you I have never met & many of you I have been blessed to have in my life, but y’alls constant words of encouragement, love & UNBELIEVABLE support has kept me going in pursuing my dream to get to the Olympia! I cried 5 times today because of messages. Thank you from my whole fucking heart
How I did: No points this show towards O..I have never been disappointed in any show I have ever done, because each show teaches me something and I will apply in making myself even better as an athlete... Unsure where I placed, will have a better idea at the night show. Regardless, I will take the judges feedback and critiques and come back in 2019 season more prepared with a better package! Loved my body and stage presence, but we can always better our best, here is to improvement season, next show is feb 2019 😘

How true is this statement?! Please remember your situation could be worse. Stop thinking about what you don't have & be grateful for what you're ALREADY BLESSED with.

“Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified. For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate. I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands. I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.” Psalms 143:1-12 KJV #goodmorning #bibleverse #verseoftheday #motivational #inspirational #quotes #God #Jesus #love #like #follow #amen #prayer #dailydevotional #devotional #faith #thankful #grateful

Awesome work this morning, 5:30!!!😁🙌💪
What a beautiful blessing! I was grinning from ear to ear when I received the good news. This time, It is a YES and AMEN 😭😇📝 I only need to learn to trust His timing during the waiting period. His timetable is far better than mine.
God's timing is perfect. It may not be the timing I want, but His timing can never be early or late. He knows exactly when to give our heart’s desire.
Smiles all round because uni break is finally here 😆🌏🌻✨
Life can change in an instant. 😇
In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart. You may never know when you may not have that chance again. ❤️ ..

Day 366 of 1000 days of gratitude!
Lol okay guys guilty confession: I can’t give this up!
As painful as it can sometimes be to try and find an image to represent my reflections for the day, the benefits and perspectives I gain from practicing daily gratitude are just too great for me to give up.
And seeing as I probably wouldn’t do it without you all to keep me accountable, you’re stuck with me 🤷🏻♀️ So here’s to another 635 days of gratitude!!!😜
So to kick off this new year of gratitude, today I accidentally left my phone at home 😳
As soon as I realised (on the way to work), I instantly got anxious. But I am actually quite grateful for the experience that I had.
My morning anxiousness continued, mainly on account of the fact that I didn’t 100% know where it was, and was worried that I may have somehow lost it (in between my home and my car 🤔)
During the day at work, I had mixed feelings too. I enjoyed not having the “distraction” of my phone and also felt kind of liberated and “off the grid” knowing that I was my own person and no one could reach me unless I chose to reach out to them. But it did also occur to me, that should something adverse happen, I wouldn’t get to know until the evening...
Lunch was strange. But I was able to focus more fully on my food, and appreciate every morsel, smell, taste and texture.
I also got slightly bored on the walk between my desk and the water filter, something I found interesting to note about myself.
But the journey home was the worst. Never has a half hour bus ride gone so slow.
So whilst I am grateful to have had this experience, to notice more what my usage habits are, and what I actually do with my day, I’m also very, very grateful to have so many options granted to me at the touch of a screen. It really is, quite incredible.
Peace out folks!
