When I Taste God’s Goodness I Shall Not Want

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

I heard this song for the first time recently and the message has made me think about it all week. The chorus says “When I taste your goodness, I shall not want.” So much to think about and I’m not sure I’ve even unpacked it all in my own mind but what a difference it […]

Surgery Anxiety

Friday, October 9th, 2015

On my post updating you on my surgery, Lisa Beth asked how I overcame my anxiety over the surgery.   I asked several friends to pray for me and I’m certain that helped. Right before the surgery, I was in considerable pain and  that also helped because it was my only option. It would have […]

Throughout my life, I’ve dealt with fear. I know this comes from my mom (ultimately from the devil!) because she worried about so many things and we picked up on that “vibe” for lack of a better word. I remember laying awake all night because I was worried there would be a fire and I […]

So many things going on in the world that leave me feeling less than peaceful. Today, I was thinking about some news stories and just felt sad and then upset. Tonight, what comes to mind is “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee.”  from Isaiah. I’m working on thinking […]

Why Would We Stay In Bondage?

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

    In our class on Sunday, the discussion was a wrap up of our study of Galatians. The leader discussed our freedom in Christ and someone asked how do we live that out? An example was given which involved jail—of course right? As I sat there, I wanted to say something, but there were […]

God’s Sovereignty

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Have you ever had to struggle with God’s sovereignty? I have as most of you know who have been following along for years. I can’t say that I can expound on it with any deep thoughts. I’ve had to come to the place where I know that He IS sovereign and work towards trusting Him […]

Tonight, I was patting baby to sleep and I decided to pray while he was deciding he wanted to stay awake for a long time. I was thinking of all the things going on in  the world. Horrible things. Evil things. Heartbreaking things. I thought about things in the US that could very personally affect […]

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30 We have so much to be thankful for each and every day. We have health and our needs are met. We have a home and comforts. We have food and necessities. We have two precious sons. We […]

How Have You Seen God At Work In Your Life Lately?

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Yesterday, at church, a missionary who grew up in the church shared about their ministry. One of the pastor’s asked her during question time, “How have you seen God at work in your life lately?” I like that question and I like that he asked that right away before people got into the things like, […]

A Tender Spot

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Whenever I hear a sermon, story, devotion, etc about suffering or trials it hits a soft spot in me. Yesterday’s sermon at church was about suffering and trials. One quote I wrote down is this. “God often uses our suffering and things that are painful and difficult for us to impact the lives of others […]
