I moved from broken to beautiful, and you can too. I’ve endured many challenges and trials in my lifetime and have experienced fear, anger, discouragement, depression, and at times even despair. I struggled to forgive God and those who hurt me. I understand those emotions. Through those difficulties, God gave me a compassion for people and a desire to help others move from broken to beautiful.

How Will You Ever Get Done?

Yvonne 1st Choice from Timorah Beales Have you ever felt overwhelmed? Yesterday afternoon I thought about four major projects I need to finish in addition to every day tasks. I asked myself, “How will I ever get done?”

Maybe I can’t get done. Maybe I’ve taken on more than I can do.

As I stared out the window, I thought about running away but laughed. That was not an option. I considered dropping one of my goals. Sadness and disappointment set in. That wasn’t an option either.

Finally I pleaded, “God, help me. What can I do?”

The answer came. I looked at the project that is due first. As I read the guidelines, I noticed the project consisted of five steps. I sat at the computer and put in two dates on my calendar to work on that first step.

With wisdom from above, I realized I could focus on the first project and dedicate time weekly to work on it. The second project is due by the end of June. I can work on that afterward.

After the completion of the second project, I can tackle my third and fourth projects, which are similar. I can work on them at the same time.

What do you do when you worry about getting a job or a project done?

Psalm 107:6: “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.”

Dear God, I cry out to you in my troubles, and they are many. Amen.

Application: When will you allow the Lord to deliver you from your distress?

How Could I Do That?

Henry, a man in his 40s, sat in my office and hung his head. “How could I have sex with another woman?” He continued to look at the floor. “How could I be unfaithful to the only woman who has ever loved me?” I waited a couple of minutes. “Perhaps you fell for the serpent’s…Continue Reading

Enrique, un hombre de unos 40 años, se sentó en mi oficina y agachó la cabeza. “¿Cómo pude tener relaciones sexuales con otra mujer? Continuó a mirar el piso. ¿Cómo pude ser infiel a la única mujer que me ha amado?” Esperé unos dos minutos. “Tal vez fueras engañado por las mentiras de la serpiente…Continue Reading
