  1. Thank you Anna, I can’t express just how much this means to me where I’m at today. It’s like God told you what to write, then nudged me on this particular day to get on here and read, because He knew just what I needed to hear. Much love, ~G

  2. I needed this this am! I was SO tempted to reset the alarm & sleep some more postponing my time in The Word & worship but not knowing what will distract or demand later time slots I must work on the foundation now! I’ve shared with my Titus 2 group & others who I know will be encouraged as well. Thank you for stepping on my toes this am!
    PS I used to have to take Valium to get me to go to the dentist. I’ve learned dental work is not fatal ;~) & was designed to improve my prayer life! I pray for the dentist & staff & others in need. Makes having 10,000 instruments in your mouth at once & being asked questions less stressful & much more productive!

  3. This was just what I needed today and hank you! Praise God I had very similar results to your. I have a wonderful hygienist who has helped me and I know God sent her to me. Bless you Anna!!

  4. Thank you so much. The write up is a fact of life where you are either afraid to do certain thing or you keep procastinating about what you are expected to do.

    May God help us to always be at our duty posts to do what is expected of us without giving excuses or looking for easy way out in Jesus name, amen.

  5. Anna,

    All of us need to build healthy habits for our bodies, minds & souls. Doing so takes roughly 2 months. Once you start establishing those habits we must keep at it daily. Put some spiritual whitespace on your calendar daily for yourself. You will be erecting a strong foundation for tomorrow. One that will last a long time.

    Blessings 🙂

  6. Great message and in God’s time as well. The Lego example speaks volumes for sure 80’s baby here! Thank you for your message this lovely morning!
