Psalm 34:18

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. I know that my heart is completely broken. I need to study the contrite spirit. I heard a lady say that we get rid of broken things but God only uses broken things. That […]

Isaiah 40:10,11

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

“Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that […]

In all things giving thanks

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

This is something I really have struggled with. It’s not easy to honestly say “thank you God for this. Thank you that my husband is in prison” I usually choke over these words. So I don’t like this and my sin nature is NOT thankful. So what to do? Live in disobedience or obey this […]

Thanks be to God for godly men

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

A few men at church are doing a Bible study on being men of integrity. A few weeks ago, they offered the congregation to be available for anything that is needed. Work around the house, help with things, etc. Since I have no one to do my “honey do” list and personally don’t even have […]

Darkness

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

I know that wise brethren say, “You should not give way to feelings of depression.” Quite right, no more we should. But we do; and perchance when your brain is as weary as ours you will not bear yoursleves more bravely than we do. “But desponding people are very much to be blamed.” I know […]

I just wanted a hug!

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

I went to visit my husband tonight. It is a short drive. Not close but not far. I even curled my hair, spritzed on his favorite perfume and away I went. I got there early and signed in. Approximately 1 minute later the guard says to me “He’s on a transfer list. You can’t see […]

Serving

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Because of all of this stress, I have taken a break from ministering. Not totally–I still have done several things. I just had to step away from ministries that required weekly service. I was (and am) so tired and so full of hurt that I needed to soak up the Word and not be in […]

I learned much about prayer through her book The Power of a Praying Wife. Also her book Just Enough Light for the Step I’m On was very helpful especially in relation to this situation.

A Woman After God’s Own Heart

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

This is another author that I say “Buy everything she’s written” Her studies are very Biblical and convicting. I learned a lot in this book about me and what I needed to change about myself. At first that was hard to swallow. HE was the one messing up our home. But I had sin in […]

A man does not live here

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

I walked through my house the other night. My eyes taking it all in. No one would know that a man does not live here. That startled me. I know a man doesn’t live here. Each night when I go to bed, I remember that. There is no snoring body for me to crawl over. […]
