The Gift

My life is exactly what it is. It's my life. I don't live my life to please or to appease anyone on this earth. I strive to live to serve as a vessel for God. It gets hard at times, and I tend to fall short. However, I just continue to press on because the easy thing to do would be to simply give up. And Toni Lynn Valencia does not give up on anything or anyone that she truly believes in.

There are a number of people that have let me down in my life. Some more than others, but that's neither here nor there. It doesn't matter. It's the past. I can't go back and change it, so why waste the time pondering over it. People, the past is what it is...THE PAST! I am guilty of dwelling in the past at times, but lately God has been whispering to my spirit informing me that I need to live for today. Today is his gift to me. It is "The Present." A present is a gift right? Who would refuse a gift? Especially a gift from God.

Take the time to be appreciative instead of complaining about the things that you don't have. To have a breath in your body this day is the greatest gift a person could receive. Simply because God did not have to give it to you. This was the "present" that was given to you this morning. Live for the present. Be the best you can be. Make everyday count and Lord knows, stop worrying about things that you have no control over. Because if you don't stop, those things will control you.

Blog for March 10th will be: "Girl Listen"

God's Grace & Mercy will set you free!!!
