“I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” *God has plans for us *He plans to prosper us. He will provide *He does not plan to harm us (me) *He plans to give us […]

I still do

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

I still love you. More than the day we said “I do” This road has wound with curves we did not see. The path has brought hurt and fear. Doubts and tears press their way to the top of my mind. Do I love you? Are you the one? Of course you are. No matter […]

Psalm 89:31-33

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

Today in the Beth Moore book I read this verse–what a blessing to know God disciplines and yet completely loves. Psalm 89:31-33 If they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands, I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging; but I will not take my love from him, nor […]

He is Good

Friday, August 25th, 2006

I wrote about my “Mary/Martha” struggle earlier. This past week was rough. I have been near tears quite often. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m tired, or unsure or not knowing what is going to happen. On Sunday, I was getting ready for church feeling very much as though I didn’t want to go. […]

Fears

Friday, August 25th, 2006

I am reading Breaking Free by Beth Moore. It’s the 1st book I’ve read by her and I find it to be a good study. Here is a gem from today’s reading. “God has carefully and graciously allowed some of my fears to come true so that I would discover that I would not disintegrate. […]

“People like that”

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

There is a definite shadow on the lives of the prisoner’s family. I was in a store once and overheard a lady saying that “All the problems in this town are because of people who’s man is in jail” That was a heart stabbing moment. We don’t cause problems in this town. We are just […]

What Happens When Women Pray

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

This is an excellent book. I learned so much about prayer through all of the books by Evelyn Christenson.

A change of focus

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

Today Pastor challenged me to remember to pray that this will be over when my husband is ready. I have truly prayed for my husband to change and to be the man of God that I know God wants him to be. But I’ve also wanted so badly for him to be able to come […]

Isaiah 54:11-13 O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, [and] not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. And all thy children [shall be] taught of the […]

Mary & Martha

Monday, August 21st, 2006

I have been facing a serious case of Mary & Martha this week. When Jesus didn’t move fast enough to save Lazerus, they let him know they were not amused. I have been struggling a lot these past couple weeks. More than I have been for a long time. This week, I was feeling like […]
