So you fell flat on your face- Ahh!


There is no need to throw your hands up in the air when things don’t go as planned. Resist the temptation to embrace frustration or to have a meltdown. There is no need to hide from the world to disconnect, and there is no need for you to try to find someone to blame for the failure. Frustration is the everyday bread to those who give up and that is not you!

So you fell flat

on your face… Oh no!

What to do?

Just get back up! Go back to the drawing board and do things God’s way. He is more than able to help and lead you to success if you follow His lead! He will make your path strait. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

There is one thing to keep in mind. We do need people in our world to speak truth and to counsel us as we prepare to make big decisions. We don’t know it all. If you ask God, He will lead you to these people so that you have all the insight you need. Even though you make your own decisions, remember as well that you can’t ignore God’s council and expect things to go right. A one-man band is only good for entertainment…

P.L.A.N.S.

P– Pray for direction.

L– Listen to counsel.

A– Always let God have the final word.

N– No need to rush. God’s timing is the right one.

S. Success should always be measured by God’s
standards and not men’s standards.

Proverbs 16:3 Proverbs 4:26

Proverbs 16:20 Proverbs 15:22

Proverbs 3:6 Proverbs 11:14

Proverbs 16:9 Proverbs 4:18

I drew the acronym for the word PLANS from these verses. It is not meant to be your ABCs of life, but more as key components that should be part of your decision-making process.

Thanksgiving Bible Scripture Verses


 Put the happy, the giving, and the thanks back in…

*Happy Thanksgiving!*

A merry heart doeth good like medicine. – Proverbs 17:22

On Thanksgiving, too many people are preoccupied with turkeys, family gatherings, parades, football games, and even Black Friday  sales. It seems that over time, this holiday has become more about getting things—whether that’s food, entertainment, chill time, or bargains—than about giving thanks for what we already have. Be grateful for what you DO have instead of focusing on what your life is missing.  Just do it –don’t just think it-  Give a voice to your Gratitude!

 Speak and Sing Thanks!

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Psalm 100:4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.

Jonah 2:9 But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will pay Salvation is from the LORD.”

Psalm 107:29-31 –He stilled the storm and calmed the waves. They were happy that it was quiet, and God guided them to the port they wanted. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his love and for the miracles he does for people.

Ephesians 5:3-4 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

1 Chronicles 16:8 – Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples.

Psalm 69:30 I will praise the name of God with song, And shall magnify Him with thanksgiving.
