A Light In The Darkness

The Lord is my light and my salvation- so why should I be afraid? the Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” Psalm 27:1

It really seems that life is so much busier than it was in my parents generation. The adults (often both parents) are working long hours while even the kids seem to have no free time. If they aren’t participating in a group in school, they’re in several different sports-leaving them with just enough time to get their school work done. Society seems to think that the busier you are the better your life will be. Unfortunately it often leads to an overwhelming amount of stress, depression, anxiety…is it all really worth it?

Forgive and Forget

“I love the LORD, because He has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because He inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call on Him as long as I live.” Psalm 116:1-2

I’ve been looking over my blogs the last few days and I honestly have to laugh. It seems like I have nothing but issues in my life. When frankly, that’s just not the case. Yeah, I’ve got issues-who doesn’t? But I am also so very, very blessed. Continue reading “Forgive and Forget”

Being A Constant Tripper

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

It’s been a rough week. And a very emotional one. And on weeks like this I sometimes wonder if I should continue doing this blog and running a Bible study. I worry that all the ‘issues’ that I have will allow me to be really used by God.  Continue reading “Being A Constant Tripper”

Thanks In The Midst of Trouble

And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11:25

Wow. That’s all I can say right now…Wow. Life can really throw us curve balls can’t it? Ugh! This weekend has seriously been icky. Started out a little early with what all I can call is“1- ‘high school drama’. I didn’t go through that much when when I was in high school, feels kinda crappy that I need to go through it at 47 years of age. 😦 Continue reading “Thanks In The Midst of Trouble”

Great Is His Faithfulness

Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.” Proverbs 4:25-27

I haven’t been feeling well over the last few weeks and the time has made me more aware than I’d like to admit of my shortcomings. In several aspects of my life I’ve gone the opposite direction than I had hoped for. And that right there is part of the problem. I’m hoping for something that I’m not 1-putting the effort into and 2-and most importantly-not bringing them to Jesus first. Continue reading “Great Is His Faithfulness”
