We Can Be Thankful For Our Trials

We Can Be Thankful For Our Trials

Well, we’ve come to the end of our Thanksgiving series on God and Our Trials.  Friend, I don’t know where you are in your life and what circumstances you find yourself in, but I hope you have found comfort in understanding the good that will come from the hard times of life and in knowing… Continue Reading

God’s Love and Our Trials

God’s Love and Our Trials

So far we have looked at God’s sovereignty and His providence.  His sovereignty means His complete control over everything that happens to us and how nothing surprises Him for He already knows the outcome.  That can and should bring us rest and increase our faith and trust in Him.  It’s His providence that brings us… Continue Reading

God’s Providence and Our Trials

God’s Providence and Our Trials

Last week we looked at God’s Sovereignty in relation to our trials.  We learned how we can trust Him to provide for us through those trials.  Both Matthew and Luke explained that He cares for us even more than the sparrows, lilies and grasses of the fields. Today I want to explore how the trials… Continue Reading

God’s Sovereignty and Our Trials

God’s Sovereignty and Our Trials

God’s sovereignty might just be my favorite attribute of Him and the one that has sustained me the most through the course of my life, especially the trials that came through being Big Bro’s mama. There were times that the only thing that got me through the days and weeks was knowing none of what… Continue Reading

God and Our Trials

God and our trials.  Have you ever wondered where He is in the midst of the hard times you are walking through?  When you are in the thick of things, it is difficult to feel His presence.  But He teaches us so much about Himself through those hard times.   As November begins and Thanksgiving… Continue Reading

Grateful for God’s Faithfulness

This passage gives us confidence in our salvation assuring us that it cannot be lost.  However, the part that struck me the most was when he… Continue Reading

Sampson and Discernment

Sampson and Discernment

In moving through the First5 app I came to Judges and the story of Sampson.  I was moved by the parallels to our lives in how Sampson lacked discernment.  He was enticed by the world and flirted with temptation time and time again. It is so so easy to fall prey to those things that tempt… Continue Reading

To God Be The Glory

To God Be The Glory

Well, I’m getting quite the late start on the blog here this year.  So much has been happening here.  To God be the glory, January brought a final diagnosis for Big Bro.  In His goodness, God has blessed us with someone who read the reports correctly and is showing us how to help him.  In… Continue Reading

Anxiety- Give Me Grace to Trust Him More

Anxiety- Give Me Grace to Trust Him More

Are you familiar with that tingly anxiety wash followed by a bit of nausea?  Maybe for you anxiety says hello differently, but however it announces its unwelcome arrival I’m guessing you can relate to it appearing.  For me, it usually shows up in the evening and lately can really affect when I’m able to sleep.… Continue Reading

Out Upon the Water, Like Peter

Out Upon the Water, Like Peter

Lately I have been keenly identifying with the apostle Peter, specifically his story of being called out upon the water.  I’ve been thinking about all the emotions that he was experiencing in those particular moments- terror being in the middle of the storm on a boat, fear seeing a figure walking towards them where no… Continue Reading
