You Are Not Alone!

Even if you feel alone, know that you are not. God is there and all you have to do is ask Him to comfort you and fill the void in your life. I believe what God says. Yes, I get weary and the tears fall down my face. That is my way of releasing those heavy weights. Then, I remember that my family loves me unconditionally and they are a phone call away!
He knows what we need and He will get rid of people and things that are not good for us. Keep loving!!! Keep giving!!! Keep serving God!!! It will pay off!!!

Lessons in Life: Forgiveness

Asking For Forgiveness

I am a firm believer in forgiveness. During your lifetime, you will experience hurt, disappointment and heartache. The key to dealing with these emotions is putting the negative events in your life in perspective. Your experiences are teachable moments. You learn who you are, what you want in life and you gain wisdom. Everything that you’ve had to face did not happen by chance. Either it was a lesson for you or the other person. God uses us as His vessels. So, forgive the person that hurt you. Come to grips with your past and allow yourself to move on. Say to yourself, “today I choose to forgive. The person that hurt me no longer has power over me. I am set free because I choose to forgive.” Forgiveness=Freedom

How Did You Do It?

RSWY CEO Gwen OwensPeople ask me all the time, “how did you overcome adversity?” I DECIDED that I wanted more out of life and I was through feeling sorry for myself. It was that simple. The process was sometimes difficult but I would not trade the life God has given me. I learned to take one minute at a time and embrace me. I know what it is like to be broken; but, I know what joy and being whole feels like,too. I have peace even when things are off course because I know there is someone much greater than me. He made promises and I can count on Him to keep them. He doesn’t lie and he is merciful and kind. He never said it would be easy but he promised to comfort and keep me. I believe you know Him, too! Just step out on faith and believe.
