My time with God is not something I can do with out. It is my life line! I wake up early just so I have my time to read and pray as I start the day.
Everything that happens in life isn't good however we have the promise that our God will use it for good (Romans 8:28). I'll be there first to admit that it can be very to see how good can come out of some situations.
I pray, "Lord, I believe!" But where my faith is lacking "help my unbelief".
As Jonathan prays he will ask for Jesus to give him good dreams. Or when he gets up in the middle of the night he asks "mom, pray that Jesus will give me good dreams". This is the faith of a child, he believes that God is big enough to do anything and close enough to care.
As I watched myself put on my ring one morning I realized the significance of it. A ring reminding me to trust. To trust not just a little but with ALL MY HEART. Trust is a choice.Just as I make the effort to put on the ring, I must choose to trust every day too. Trust because He is my peace. But, it does take choosing to trust.
I woke up the next morning and the fear that had gripped my heart the day before was replaced with peace.
There are many times I look at my to-do list and calendar and feel overwhelmed. I've cried "God, I can't do all this..."

This must have been an amazing day to witness but I cringe... I know what is coming. The betrayal of Jesus a … Continue reading He Calls Me By Name
Jonathan loves to ask questions right now, Especially at Bible time. It's been fun and rewarding getting to hear him ask questions trying to understand God deeper. A hunger I pray never leaves. Tonight he asked what it meant that God was limitless. That is a really big concept. I am not sure I truly … Continue reading Exorcise
As I lay listening to it last night I realized it was me who had this timeline of when I wanted doors to open.
And I was discouraged because they aren't opening.
He is in the waiting
I wanted to share a great story of God's grace in my life. I wanted to share with you like we were sitting together talking. So, I made a video.
I love our prayer time on Sunday mornings.
Earlier in the year, my friend led us to pray over one another. This was an amazing thing to share.
As I thought of this I didn't remember a time that we did this for her.
I decided I wanted to share a verse with my friends
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus - Philippians 1:6
This is a verse that has been sitting on my heart. It is a message that I keep hearing over and over again.
God's greatest story of grace the story of Salvation. The Gospel is the most amazing story of love that you will ever find. It is simple enough for a child to understand and so that is how I am going to talk about it today. Not that you are a child but there is no point … Continue reading God’s greatest story of grace
