"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

I Think I Can..I Think I Can....I Think I Can...

Sometimes you just have to " I think I can " yourself
right up to the finish line
where the "I did it" waits!!!!!
Have you been there?

An area that I've been trying to
improve on in my life is that of being more
Determined.
Without determination, how 
will we ever make it to all of our
hopes and dreams?


"Many of life's failures
are people who did not realize
how close they were to success 
when they gave up."
Thomas Edison 

No matter what our dreams are, we will face obstacles.  
Actually, we should expect obstacles instead
of being so surprised by them.
I have been there where I let the surprise from obstacles
defeat me.  It seemed easier to give up than to endure. I'm so 
thankful that God used those times to grow me
and show me that Determination was 
an area I needed to improve on so that
I could Press On
through to the finish line and to all the wonderful
things He created for me to be and do.
It's a process which I am still learning and probably
will be  continuing to improve on
until I'm in Heaven.


Once you know what your goal is,
be determined to see it through,
 past all of the failures and the obstacles. 

Be the little train that could and before
long, our puffing over getting there,
will be finished and rewarded
with seeing our goals
come to life.

 You know what?
I think you can..... I know you can!




"I can do all things
through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

Lee Ann,

Love how this post just relates to so many people that don't realize how close they are to success and then give up before achieving it. If you give up, you fail. Keep persevering right to the end.
