Apr.29/20 – Luck: a loser’s excuse for a winner’s position.


The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.                                                                                                          Proverbs 13:4

Life isn’t a game of poker. When we put in a good sincere effort it will pay off. Sometimes we work hard and if doesn’t end up as fruitful as what we would have liked. Maybe what we were doing wasn’t what the Lord had planned for us. For me it’s always hindsight that is 50:50. I have to remember to give it up in prayer first.

Peace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
