Let God Write His Laws In Your Heart

Good morning. The kids are back to school after a 4 day weekend. I am sitting here drinking a cup of coffee. My kids said that I should take a coffee challenge to see if I can stay awake the whole day, without drinking coffee. Hmmm, I do not think anyone wants to see me… Continue reading Let God Write His Laws In Your Heart

Let God’s Glory Shine Through You

Good Morning! It is a cold day here. The kids are off school today for an administrative day. We made slime this morning. My daughter added pink food coloring, and my son added green food coloring to his slime. After washing their hands for 20 minutes, my son's hands are still a light shade of… Continue reading Let God’s Glory Shine Through You

Peace Through The Storm

Some people say 2020 is a new decade and some say 2021 is a new decade. I do not know which one is technically correct, but I would like to think that I am starting a new decade. I start 2020 with sadness, having lost my mom to cancer on Christmas day and my dad… Continue reading Peace Through The Storm

Turn Sorrow Into Joy at Christmas

Expectations are powerful. If you expect more of yourself, you can try harder, work harder and do better. Expectations can build you up. Expectations can also tear you down. When you expect others to behave or act in a certain way, and they do not, you can get angry or frustrated. I think it is… Continue reading Turn Sorrow Into Joy at Christmas

Trying to Live By God’s Standard

Yesterday, at church, our pastor read through the book of Amos. He reminded us that we have to follow God's standard, not society's standard. God's standard is clearly written in the bible. Our pastor read a part of the constitution that says our country was founded on God's principles. Just like in the Old Testament's… Continue reading Trying to Live By God’s Standard

Thanking God That My Plans Did Not Work

When I look at my life, I still try to find my own solutions. I am getting better about letting God handle situations in my life. I sometimes still find myself thinking that something looks good enough. God has something better, that I have not even imagined. Five years ago, we were going to sell… Continue reading Thanking God That My Plans Did Not Work

Exchange Weariness For Joy

Good morning! Yesterday was a gloomy morning, and my mood matched it. I was reading through Hebrews today, and this scripture verse resonated to my heart. When we feel weary and discouraged, think about Jesus. He came as a light to this world, to forgive our sins. Jesus endured hostility from the sinners, he was… Continue reading Exchange Weariness For Joy

Replace Your Weariness With Peace

This morning, I woke up feeling overwhelmed. Do you ever feel that way? I felt like most of the world was against me, and that feels like too much. I prayed that God would take away my burdens and give me rest for my soul. We are always supposed to be happy and cheery, but… Continue reading Replace Your Weariness With Peace

God’s Love Compared To Toxic Relationships

When you truly believe in Jesus, your heart changes. We still live in a world with everyone else, good people, bad people, believers, and unbelievers. I have to remind myself that God created me for a purpose. God considers me worthy. ┬áThere will be people in my life that will look down on me. I… Continue reading God’s Love Compared To Toxic Relationships

God Fights For Us

I hope that all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. I hope that everyone reading this today has many reasons to be thankful. Over the past year, I have been getting closer to God. The closer I get to God, the more thankful I am that God is so, so good. Everything good… Continue reading God Fights For Us
