Sunday Inspiration

During this past week I kept feeling these words leaping in my heart-THE BEST IS YET TO COME! With these words inevitably to mind came the ever-so-popular Frank Sinatra song. Oh, how I enjoy Sinatra. :) Even the very first line of the song makes me smile: "Out of the tree of life, I just picked me a plum" later followed by "Wait till you see that sunshine day, you ain't seen nothing yet!"

Some days my heart is just so overwhelmed by and full of anticipation and joy as I close my eyes and envision my wildest and craziest dreams becoming a reality. It's exhilarating and sometimes sobering when I realize that with some I still have a long way to go but, by putting one foot in front of the other every single day, I (and you) will eventually achieve each one!

While we are all hard at work turning our dreams into reality, it is important to remember that when we've given all that we can give and have done all that we know to do and our abilities end, that is when God's abilities begin and can really shine. Even if we've tried and failed or given up at times, He can finish whatever we've started and turn even the biggest messes in our life into a message of hope and a blessing to both ourselves and  others. I believe this because I've seen it happen so many times in my own life and the lives of friends and family.

He is able to do "exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us" ~Ephesians 3:20

Have a blessed day and expect THE BEST this year!

  1. Karla, I couldn't agree with you more. This year is going to be full of amazing opportunities and blessings. Believing it is half the battle. And what better voice and song to think of - love Ole Blue Eyes. :)

    Happy new year to you. :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by Shannon. It's so true, belief is what holds so many people back with a notion of 'I'll believe it when I see it', when really we need to be saying:

    "I'll see it WHEN I believe it."

    Here's to a fabulous 2011!


  3. Karla, I agree! I am so excited about what I have planned for 2011 and beyond! YES! SOme things are happening now and some are far off. And I can't wait for it all to come true!
    also- my youngest son LOVES Frank!
    Have a pretty day!

  4. Great inspiring post Karla. As you say "one foot in front of the other" is the way to go. I also want to achieve so much this year, and that can sometimes make me feel overwhelmed. Your post has helped me put that into perspective; thank you.

  5. I appreciate your positivity & faith in God the Father! With Him all things are indeed possible! God bless you in this new year!


Thanks for stopping by, your comments make my day! I read every single one and will answer any questions you have. I hope you'll visit again soon! :)
