20 Years Ago

Twenty years ago last week I left home for foreign shores, and crossed the ocean for the first time. I had zero fear about it…only total exhilaration! I was getting to study at the University of Derby for a whole semester! It was a dream come true for me.

It was the first time in my life that I went after and accomplished something I really wanted in life. For me it is still a huge deal. 

Anyway…I’ve been thinking considering taking a giant leap but I am not 100% sure what I really want to get out of this giant leap for Jill-kind. 

So the point to ponder while you wander today is actually a prayer request for clear direction and understanding for my next step in this next season. I am overdue for some adventuring!! 

In return, I pray that God will reveal to you a greater measure of His love for you. So you’ll never doubt His love and affection for you. And that His love will embolden you to embrace who you are.

Magnification 

​Everyone has problems. But dwelling on problems magnifies them in your mind, until they SEEM overwhelming. Choose to focus on Jesus & who you are in Him, and you’ll see how these things can be overcome. You are an overcomer! 

Set your mind on things above, not on things that are on the earth.” Colossians 3:2 ESV

Point to ponder while you wander… Don’t worry. Don’t dwell on the negative. Instead be thankful. Be positive. There’s joy to be found in that way of thinking…and strength comes from joy.
