Forty-Five Verses: It's About the Growth (Repost)

Hey Friends, I hope you have had a good week! It has been a full week of prayer and sharing the faithfulness of God for me..beginning with "Night of Prayer" Monday night...then a  "call to prayer" on WDJC 93.7 Rox and Friends (wow-so powerful!!) Wednesday morning and then speaking about "Joy in the Process" on Thursday to a Lovely group of ladies! Throw in family and working and home and boom it's Friday! On Monday night, as I prayed... I literally stopped like a statue when I heard the song "It is well" begin to play. The next line "With my Soul" showered me with peace of God and it has hovered all week. The peace that transcends all understanding. Praise God for His peace. I shared the following CaringBridge Journal  from 2010 to the group I spoke to on Thursday, as well as with my family this week. I wanted to share again with you. Prayers that you continue to grow in Christ! Have a fantastic day!
"To set the mind on the fl…

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2

Since Jesus is THE author and finisher of my faith, I give Him the glory and honor for every word written on this blog from this day forward. As his word says "looking unto Jesus", I will be looking, seeking and sharing what he reveals to my heart. My heart belongs to Him and it is my hope t…

"For the kingdom of God is not a matter or talk but of power." I Corinthians 4:20

I had many questions, 
but all of the answers are found in God's word, 
the Bible.
Who will help me get through this?
"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." Deuteronomy 20:4

What do can I do, this seems like too much?
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

When will this be over or get easier?

Where will I find the strength to keep going?
"The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights." Habakuk 3:19

Forty-Five Verses: Relax and Reset

This heron was just minding his own business when we walked up and disturbed his peace. It appeared to be his happy place, just as the beach was mine on Spring Break.  I am still relishing in the good time we had doing a whole lot of nothing. How peaceful and productive it was to just be still. To relax. In this fast paced, overscheduled, overstimulated, overwhelmed world of technology, comparison and chronic busyness...relaxation is becoming harder and harder. It's non-existent to some and seems unattainable to others.
Just because you're still, you don't have to be bored. Did you know when you are bored you can actually be creative?  It's as if being bored is a bad thing these days. We are so used to being entertained with our phone or activities we don't know how to be still and  listen. To the voice of God. To pray for others. To write down our thoughts. To write a card to a hurting friend. To clean out a closet or drawer. To go work in the yard. To take a wal…
