3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge | Day 3

01 Jul

Thank you to Dan for nominating me for this challenge and pushing me to become a better blogger. Please check out his site and the challenge at –

Roaring lion with Bible scripture, There is a story behind this quote. And it’s found in the halls of the Virginia Beach Juvenile/Domestic courthouse.

Courage. I was afraid at how the events would unfold.

Strength. I was weak of heart.

Having to stand in front of a judge for false accusations regarding visitation issues with my daughter.

I got up slowly that day. Cautiously. And sat down at my kitchen table to spend my Quiet Time in my devotionals. This time always has a calming effect on me and helps me to reorient my compass no matter the situation.

Today was no exception.

So I prayed and said, “Lord, let your will be done.” That was it. That’s all it took.

The devotional for that day was focused around this verse. For the rest of the day I was calmly assured that things would work out. I didn’t know how. But they did.

Dan asked that I nominate three other bloggers for this challenge. There are several more than that whom I know you will be blessed to hear what they have to say, and I cannot just limit it to three.

♦  Each of you will nominate three others who will do the same to repeat the process.

♦  You will have three days to post three quotes.

♦  Dan told a story behind each of his quotes. And I used visuals for mine with a short blurb behind it. The format is up to you.

Have fun!

Here are my nominations-

    What a beautify story my friend and I love the fact that you shared it with everyone 🙂

    As I read your story I could relate wholeheartedly to your faith and the strength of character that it takes to simply trust in ‘a power greater than ourselves’ to look after us once we have acknowledge that we are powerless over the outcome.

    It is impossible to punish a soul that is full of love because that soul just accepts everything for what it is. I’m certain everything worked out for you not because of what you had or hadn’t done but because of who you were in that moment 🙂 As long as you remember that then no harm shall ever come to you.

        We’re all the same consciousness, we just let our minds think we’re different. When we stop thinking and become our conscious-self we connect with the universe and everything in it and life becomes… simple. 🙂 I love you buddy.
