Sunday Encouragement-There’s Hope!

This past year, our family has been through a difficult year. But through it all I kept clinging to hope. I know that in the difficult times, God is our hope.

Sunday Encouragement-There's Hope!

The verse that keeps coming to my mind is is Genesis 50:20, You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good.  

We are finally seeing the “good” that God has been working out. He’s been faithful and I choose to believe there are better days ahead!

Sometimes when I hear a song, I want to shout, YES!! This is one of those songs.

I’ve been running through rain that I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith in a struggle against the wind
I’ve seen the dark and the broken places
But I know in my soul no matter how bad it gets, I’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen, there’s hope in front of me

There’s a place at the end of the storm you’ll finally find
Where the hurt and the tears and the pain all fall behind
You open up your eyes and up ahead there’s a big sun shining
Right then and there you realize, you’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen, there’s hope in front of me

There’s a hope still burning
I can feel it rising through the night
And my world’s still turning
I can feel Your love here by my side

You’re my hope
You’re the light I still see it
Your hands are holding me
Even when I don’t believe
Oh, I’ve got to believe, I‘ve got to believe

I still have hope
You are my hope

Since I’m doing 31 days of summer fashion. This is a dress I wore to church. The dress I’ve had for a while, my heels are BCBGeneration brand and I purchased them at Marshall’s.

31 days of Summer Fashion

I don’t know what you’re going through, but do you know there’s always hope?

Have a blessed Sunday!

Sunday Encouragement-Let’s Thrive!

I love how God’s word always speaks to me. I read this passage in Romans from the New Living Translation. It simply states what we need to be doing.

Sunday Encouragement-Let's Thrive!

I love this entire passage but specifically, “Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” Do you have something today that troubles you. Let me remind you, KEEP ON PRAYING!!

We heard Casting Crowns in concert a few months ago. This is one of their newer songs, Thrive.

 

We were made for more than ordinary lives!! We were made to Thrive!!

Have a blessed Sumday!!

Sunday Inspiration-Hope

One of my daughter’s favorite words, has always been HOPE. Some of her favorite scriptures are about hope.

Sunday Inspiration-Hope

No matter what you’re going through today, I hope you know you always have HOPE.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13

About a year ago, I was asked to write a testimony for a book called Joy In the Journey. It’s a book about 12 different women with different journeys and how we each found joy and hope through our experiences. I share my testimony about losing my Mom.

If you need some encouragement this book is filled with it, you can go here for more information.

Sunday Inspiration-Father’s Day

When I was thinking about what to write for Father’s day, I couldn’t help but think about how difficult today is for those who have lost their father’s.

I can relate because I know how difficult Mother’s day is for me. So I want you to know if you have lost your father, I am praying for you today. I hope you know that you have a heavenly father that loves you very much!

I do want to say how thankful I am for my Dad and my husband. I don’t deserve either of these men. They are truly a blessing to me and wonderful examples.

Sunday Inspiration-Father's Day

One of my favorite songs for Father’s Day, is by Phillips, Craig & Dean. It reminds me that our children and our grandchildren are watching us. As parents and grandparents we need to point them to our Heavenly Father.

 

Have a blessed day!

Live Life To The Fullest!

I shared this quote yesterday morning on my facebook page. It’s a great reminder to live life to the fullest!

Live Life To The Fullest!

Courtney and Colt and I spent some time Saturday enjoying our sweet small town. We went to a Beef Festival and then headed to one of our favorites places and got an ice cream cone. A perfect way to spend a summer day!

Live Life To The Fullest!

Is our life perfect? No. Do we have disappointments and difficulties? Absolutely. Does anyone go through this life without some bumps and bruises?

But we believe each day is a gift and although the journey is not always easy, we’re counting our blessings and believing Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Today, savor the blessings and know that “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Psalm 118:24


  Have a blessed Sunday!

Sunday Inspiration

Happy first day of June! Wayne and I are not only back from New York but we’re back from his sabbatical. Today, we’re headed back to our church. I’ve missed our church family and can’t wait to worship with them today.

Last Sunday, Wayne and I worshipped at The Brooklyn Tabernacle. We’ve been there before and to be honest, unless you go, it’s hard to explain.

I don’t think I can adequately describe what worship is like at The Tab (that’s what they call it).

Sunday Inspiration

The choir is amazing and if you’ve ever read anything about the choir, the testimonies that many of them have are unbelievable.

On the flight home, I read Carol Cymbala’s book, He’s Been Faithful. It’s an easy read but she shares several testimonies from the people at The Brooklyn Tabernacle.

She also shares about the choir’s purpose, “Our ministry is to lead people to an encounter with Jesus Christ. For us, performance would be a giant step down.”

Believe me, you can tell they’re not performing. They mean the words they are singing.

If you ever have the opportunity to go to the church, I highly recommend it!

Of course, I thought I’d share a song from The Brooklyn Tabernacle choir. I love this song. No matter what comes our way in this life, let’s not lose our praise!

 

I’ve lost some good friends along life’s way
Some loved ones departed in Heaven to stay
But thank God I didn’t lose everything
I’ve lost faith in people who said they care
In the time of my crisis they were never there
But in my disappointment in my season of pain
One thing never wavered one thing never changed

CHORUS
I never lost my hope
I never lost my joy
I never lost my faith
But most of all
I never lost my praise

I’ve let some blessings slip away
When I lost my focus and went astray
But thank God i didn’t lose everything
I’ve lost possessions that was so dear
And I’ve lost some battles by walking in fear
But in the midst of my struggle, in the season of pain
One thing never wavered, one thing never changed

CHORUS
I never lost my hope
I never lost my joy
I never lost my faith
But most of all
I never lost my praise

Have a blessed Sunday!
