Rainy Day Deliverance

There’s a reason that they say, “When it rains, it pours.” Life always seems to happen that way, doesn’t it? We reach a point when life seems to be going just fine. We’re happy, we’re relaxed, we’re praising God for the blessings in our lives. And then, like the shadow of a storm on the…

It Doesn't Happen Overnight

We all have things about ourselves that we don’t like: health, body shape, bad habits, etc. We want to change, really we do, but it seems every time we try, we are met with failure. Why is that? Change. It doesn’t happen overnight. As FlyLady says, we didn’t get to where we are overnight, we…
