A Lesson On Perseverance.

Day # 86: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am not sure what possessed me to take on a 31 Day’s water Challenge when I am still working  on Day # 86 of my 100 Day’s challenge of Counting It All Joy!  

The irony of this whole idea is that H2O has never been a friend of mine! I believe my hatred for this chemical formula began with my difficulty in college to complete chemistry as a requirement for my Nursing degree. There are two “H “atoms and one “O” in these water molecules. Honestly, my understanding of H and O meant “Hold On.” And that is exactly what I did in Chemistry and what I was doing in taking on  this 8 glasses a day water challenge with my essential oils from Young Living. So I completed 6 glasses the first day. On the second day I reached 8 glasses and was excited that no one had to come and rescue me from drowning! But after celebrating my success of 8 glasses I found myself challenged by rainy days, a leaking roof and unexpected financial bills. However, I heard my head singing that old lyrics, “NOTHING is going to break my stride, I’ve got to keep on moving.” In the midst of all of this chaos I was still determined to run to the store to replenish my supply of water. And by the way, I had to give my cashier who was very curious about my purchase of so much water a lesson on perseverance in the midst of distractions. Unfortunately, I was not able to drink from the waterfall that was coming from my kitchen ceiling! But this Sassy Bee was going to find a way to continue to drink herself  happy and finish her water challenge. Gid-dy up girl! #I’mStillDrinking!

Join me on this 31 Day’s water challenge and Cuddle up with this bestseller, “The Eyes of Perfect Love.”

     ~I’ve Got~

I’ve got a tiny bottle,

That is filled with joy.

I’ve got a new best seller,

That is now my favorite toy!
I’ve got a new attitude,

And I will not Quit;

Because there’s a better way of living,

And I’ve got to find it!

Fruitfulness For Your Faithfulness.

If you woke up this morning, you have something to be thankful for. You are still breathing! It is St Patrick’s Day, and you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate. And yes, you may have been endeavoring all along to do what is right and yet you see no fruit from your labor. “Be Encouraged.”For the book of all Wisdom gives us a very good reason to continue to sow seeds of goodness.“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:5-8 NIV
Wisdom is speaking loud and clear. And wisdom cannot lie! So keep on sowing. Good Things are coming your way! In time, you are going to see fruitfulness for your faithfulness! Enjoy your day and take a peek into The Eyes of Perfect Love. Available on the link below.

Day # 39: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Count It All joy is not intended to be a cliche. But it is rather a lifestyle of positive perseverance. For in life we are daily developing Patience and making Progress towards Perfection ( Or Maturity). 

I have had some very interesting challenges during this 100 Days of Counting It All Joy. However, I have made it to Day # 39 and I am going to Praise my way through to Day # 100. Along the way I am planning to Shoot some CANS……Yes I Can, I Know I Can. I Believe I Can! 

During this challenge, I have learned that the best way to deal with Distractions is to take Action. So I have chosen to find satisfaction by starting a journal of Thanksgiving and Answered Prayers. I have decided to grow a bit more in the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV. I believe that I am going to like the finished product and hopefully you will too!

Patience Is A Virtue

Patience really is a virtue. “It is the capacity to endure what is difficult or disagreeable without complaining.” (Merriam Webster ) Exercising that kind of patience requires adopting a lifestyle of positive perseverance. However, in our modern age and way of thinking we often equate patience with waiting or a lack of productivity .

Contrary to what we believe, patience is not an impotent state, but a time when we are pregnant with potential. For during the waiting season of our lives there is a Work that is been performed in and upon us. So often, this is the stage that we want to bypass. Yet this is the very place where our greatest growth and development is taking SHAPE! In this place, there is an opportunity for Quiet Reflection, Meditation, Evaluation and Self-Regulation.

The waiting period is a time when we might feel like our life is in a holding pattern. But it is also a time when we are compelled to take inventory and ask ourselves what really matters? As we do we are then able to reorder our priorities and make the necessary changes that will help us to move forward and make progress.

Every time we exercise patience, we will grow a bit more steady on our life journey. And that is something we can all be thankful for.

An Introduction….

Count It All Joy is a family owned inspirational products company that specializes in the manufacturing and retail of poetry, books, gifts and other faith based resources.

The company draws its inspirational messages from the Biblical text of James which states: “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4 NKJV).

At Count It All Joy, we believe this is a key principle for spiritual growth and development. We call it the 3P Principle: that life is about developing patience while making progress towards perfection.

Our goal at Count It All Joy is to produce inspirational, yet practical products that reflect this principle. Currently we offer inspirational products and gifts under 3 distinct product lines:

  • Blessed Occasion™: A product line that includes gifts designed to celebrate religious holidays and commemorate special events such as births and/or anniversaries.
  • Inspired Appreciation™: A product line that includes gifts designed to express gratitude to individuals that have inspired or motivated us such as those in the helping professions (i.e. clergy, nurses, teachers).
  • Lifeline™: A product line comprised of gifts designed to bring comfort and hope to those who have experienced loss or personal tragedy (i.e. bereavement).

Through this blog we hope to share new products offerings, inspirational news and timely messages for spiritual growth. Our hope is that you will find this a community space to share, encourage others and make friends along your journey. Together, we can make progress towards perfection.

We begin our journey on July 12th, with a series looking at the many ways we can “count it all joy” no matter what life brings. I look forward to our conversations together.

In Him,
