Grateful for God’s Faithfulness

Grateful for God’s Faithfulness

Have you ever been overcome by God’s faithfulness in your life? Our pastor spoke on John 10 this past Sunday when Jesus makes the analogy of Him being the good shepherd. 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

Hang On For The Ride

Hang On For The Ride

Life is such a ride sometimes, would you agree?  I am finding especially as I give up control and really listen for God’s voice and direction in my life the ride becomes more eventful and exciting.  I’ll be honest.  For me, I prefer a less exciting ride and maintaining “my control” keeps it nice and… Continue Reading

When The Trials Keep Coming…

When The Trials Keep Coming…

What in the world do you do when the trials just keep coming?  When you feel like you honestly and truly cannot fight anymore?  When you see all the positive promises of hope and goodness and prosperity and reward and can in no way identify or ever see yourself being able to identify with those… Continue Reading

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

How are you today, friend? Today finds me at the end of my rope feeling like I cannot persevere anymore.  Specifically being Big Bro’s mama.  Hubby will tell you that I am stubborn and strong willed, but I am wondering if maybe Big Bro might have me beat in that department.  He has been in… Continue Reading

Oh, What A Year It Was!

Oh, What A Year It Was!

Well, have you survived the holidays so far?  I am thankful for the few day break from the festivities to catch me breath!  December held a crazy-making pace between the ceiling project and all the baking and cooking that needed to be done to maintain normalcy for Big Bro, not to mention the normal seasonal… Continue Reading
