Make It Make Sense.

“Where do the by-laws of our religion condone the injustices of people? Where do its teachings condone the lack of empathy? Where is that written in our code of conduct aka the Bible? In the text, when are those callous sentiments expressed by our leader? The Son of God himself, Jesus the Christ? Where????”

Negative.

“The what-ifs are the worst and they come without permission.  They come without warning.  Like all terrible things with no mission but to distract,  the what-ifs always come.  They come and suck the life out of a person, leaving them drained of happiness, courage and grit.  I was contending against the possibilities of things taking a turn for the worse.  I was fighting against moments that did not happen, against that which was still unknown. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Hmm… Let’s See.

Focus.

“When I think about Him, I am more gracious.  When I think about Him, I am more merciful.  When my mind is placed upon Him, I am more loving.  I am more focused when I place my attention upon Jesus.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

If You Want Me, Tell Me.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Happy Monday!  We are in month two of Quarantine-mania.  I hope you all are well, safe and sound. STAY HOME!!! I cannot express that enough… please, I love you guys and I want for you and your families to be safe.  That being said, I thought it…

Use Your Words.

“One of my absolute favorite words is “no”.  No, I am not available.  No, I would not like to go with you there.  No, I am not happy with the treatment given to me.  No, I am not satisfied with the level of communication demonstrated.  No.   No is such a powerful word, it’s a boundary inducing word and it allows us to control our environment.  A lot of us have or are currently submitting to abusive behavior because we were or are afraid to say “no.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2020.

Second Chances Are Not Guaranteed.

“Those who pursue do not bank on second chances, they take the first one. Here’s a snippet of wisdom for free: you would probably be in a relationship by now if you took a chance. Whether that relationship is good or bad is up to y’all the parties, but even conflict resolution and growth together comes from taking a shot at hard conversations. We want things without wanting to adjust for them.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Let It End.

“Can I encourage you into a new mindset today?  Into a new habit or practice?  As you enter into this newness, embrace endings! Embrace endings, for at each end is a new beginning.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

Builders Are Consistent

“Builders are consistent because when we are building something new or remodeling what’s been built before, we are steady and unchanging in nature.  Builders don’t decide at the last minute that they are not going to complete their projects.  Builders don’t waste money being indecisive.  Builders don’t waste time being unsteady and lacking stability in thought.  Builders are consistent, showing up each day at the same time ready to get the job done. “©Simone Holloway, 2020

It’s Time!

“Maybe the Father has not given us what we have been asking for because we are not mature enough. Like a great parent, He will wait until we grow up to release certain things to us.”©Simone Holloway, 2020
