Wanted: Day 3

Ambitiously Adopted 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.  Ephesians 1:5(NLT) As a child, I had many questions because I was not raised by my biological parents. Therefore, I struggledContinue reading “Wanted: Day 3”

Wanted: Day 2

We Are SO Loved! For God SO loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Burden of Confession

Reblogged from the blog, “Maggie Tiggles”, by Kathy Wire God has given me a burden of confession. It started when He laid this on my heart: Sometimes, when I want something that I know I shouldn’t, I don’t want to cry to God for deliverance from temptation. “I want it, I’ll have it,” is whatContinue reading “Burden of Confession”

The Great Comforter

 Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Grief can be a tricky thing. It’s unpredictable and comes in waves.

After the Storm

Last week, I had the opportunity to hit the road with my husband and 2 youngest children to vacation in Florida.  We were met by several thunderstorms on the way there. At times, it rained so hard that we had to pull over to the side of the road because we could hardly see. WeContinue reading “After the Storm”

Brand New Mercies

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 This morning, I woke up with Lamentations 3:22-23 on my heart. As I lay in bed, the light piercing through my window reminded me that today is a newContinue reading “Brand New Mercies”

The Power of Community

I will be the first to admit. Sometimes, I do NOT like people. They are messy and chaotic. They can be fickle and wishy-washy. They can even be too much at times. Honestly, the older I get, the more I’ve come to enjoy my own company and have become quite selective about who I giveContinue reading “The Power of Community”
