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. 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 […]

We’ve made it back from vacation and it’s bitter sweet. I miss being so close to the beach but it’s also good to be home. I always long to come back home. Even if that means coming back to some stress (we are still dealing with a very difficult situation), work, and of course housework, cooking etc. Oh fun!
But today I wanted to remind you and me of God’s grace. I don’t take it lightly. I know the sacrifices He made so that I could have grace. And to be perfectly honest, I’m desperate for it.
I sometimes forget that past sins have been wiped clean. I still mourn them but. there’s. grace.
Even now at this moment I am in need of grace. I love the words to this song… Your great grace oh such grace……So I’m breathing in your grace and breathing out your praise.

I shared this picture with you this week of Camille and Nicole heading off to school. Camille is from Paris, France and Nicole is from Caracas, Venezuela. They both live in big cities. Living with us is a huge transition for both of them.
Today we are headed to church. Camille went last Sunday but this is Nicole’s first Sunday. She has never been to a protestant church. Never attended worship. Never read scripture.
To be honest, they don’t have a lot of interest in going to church. They don’t understand why we do it. I want to explain it all to them. I want them to understand that knowing and believing in Christ is “life” for us.
But I’m not sure that anything I say will make sense. I could talk to them all day about my love for scripture, and how I want to act and look like Christ but it’s a foreign language to them.
So all I know to do is to “live life” and pray that while they’re here, they will see something different in us. I pray seeds will be planted. I’m begging God to do something in them, that only He can do.

I didn’t take this picture but saw it on facebook from Women Living Well. It reminded me of how I love to start my mornings.
The last few days I feel like I’ve been bombarded with sad news. Friends that are suffering with cancer, marriages that are struggling and families dealing with serious problems.
I never have all the answers, nor do I pretend to. But the one thing that I know is spending time in God’s word is not wasted. It is manna for our soul!
Today, take time to spend some quiet moments in His word. I promise you’ll be blessed!

source Somedays we need this written out for us! We are not defined by our mistakes or sins. Psalm 103: 8-12 says, The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever. He does not punish us for all our sins; he […]
