My coworkers often laugh at my accent and different Southern sayings. It’s made me realize just how silly some of the things we say down South really are. Instead of saying “about to go,” we say “finna go.” Sometimes I hear my twang and laugh at myself. Yesterday, my coworker said that my favorite phrase is “Lord have mercy.” I was like girl if only you knew what mercy can do for you, we would have a shouting fest. She’s a believer too, so she agreed. It’s the church girl in me and it’s deep down in me too. I love how through everything I’ve been through, the need for God in my life is always present. That brings me to my point. With all that’s going on in this world, we need to remember God’s track record in our own lives.
I saw a post recently that said the person was barely making it. I replied, but you keep on making it through each day and that’s what you need. With so much uncertainty in life in general, all we need is enough strength to make it through each day. You don’t need strength right now for tomorrow because it’s not here yet. During this trying time of much needed quarantines, try to take one day at a time. One of my favorite sayings is that you’ve survived 100% of your worst days. Take this alone time to remember ALL of the wonderful things God has done. The days you just knew you wouldn’t make it, but here you are making it. Don’t let a virus stop you from believing in our much BIGGER GOD. Be sweet.
