I woke up this morning to a nice text from a friend telling me they are missing my writings on my website, love wins period. They, like so many that most of us don’t know – aren’t on social media. I laugh saying that as it seems odd, but then again, why? – none the less, it’s true and she’s right – I need to get back to the basics – so here we go!

First I would like to ask you to please pray for my niece, Jaxyn – she’s 21, just graduated from Arkansas and has been diagnosed with a form of bladder cancer – I am not sure of all of the details of treatment and such, but what I do know – she’s young, strong and optimistic – and our God – He far surpasses anything we can understand – so yes – we trust Him for complete healing and peace for the heaviness of it all.

Now – let’s talk about optimism. I’ve been an optimist most of my life, I’ve had to be. And as most of us have learned – real optimism helps us sink our roots in the awareness and knowledge of who we are in Christ, and the extreme power of His grace.

it’s not just a wish, a thought or even positive and hopeful thinking – it’s not the confidence in knowing that everything will turn out fine – optimism is real and is tangible.

Through this optimism, we’re simply able to see what God has done for us in our lives, as well as – in those around us – so in turn – we’re able to overcome any setbacks or disappointments we may face.

Our goal of being His child far outweighs all else, for we have no fear of what may happen to our body and our soul is secure.

The truth is – when we’re positive and optimistic – our mindset will stay on what is true while seeking His promises, for we now are putting our hope into action and we’re confident beyond measure that His promises are real and true, and yes – will come straight to us,

This is what keeps our attitudes good, what fills our lives with enthusiasm, and yes – what keeps our hearts persevering even when times are just not that easy.

Friends, we are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period
