Dropping By

Well, since I haven't posted in a week, I figured I would drop by again for a few minutes. Nothing new going on but very busy as always.

2 Corinthians 4:17, 18
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

May this be an encouragement to us!

If you have any ideas for my blog, what you would like me to post, or anything you would like to know, just leave me a comment. But for now, I say good-bye and may God bless you and keep you all.

Where Am I?

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Isaiah 40:31

To understand this post a little better, you might want to read my previous one. It seems that I'm finally starting to see the victory from this battle over the last few weeks. Maybe, I've learned to wait and listen a lot more. It's easy to say "Why?" but if you wait and listen, you'll get an answer. From the trial that seemed to me so dreadful, I have learned so much. Most importantly, I think I've learned to ask, "Where am I?" This may sound like a very strange question to ask, and to be honest I asked it out of much confusion and emotional turmoil. To different people it will mean different things. Lately, it seems that my life is so busy and looking ahead at the next few weeks it seems so much busier and it feels like I have no time to slow down a little and figure out where I am in my walk with God. You get so busy that it is hard to know where you really are and you feel like you're at a standstill. I also find myself looking at others and thinking, "Wow, if only I was there!" Then it almost seems like you're trying to be somebody else but soon you have to ask, "Where am I?" I think it's very important to examine ourselves and see where we really are and not deceive ourselves and others into thinking that we're more than we really are.

God Bless and have a great week!

A Few Thoughts

Hey everyone! Seeing as I haven't posted in awhile, I figured I'd drop in for a few minutes. Not much has changed; still babysitting and homeschooling, and well, very busy as always. Yesterday, the youth went to a Baptist church in Waterford to listen to a Fehr family from Alberta sing.

Something that God has been showing me is that you can't enjoy the victory until you have fought the battle. You may recognize that from a church sign and sorry that it wasn't my own, but this opened up a big topic for thought. So often I have a small trial or temptation that comes my way and I get discouraged right away and want God to take it away. I feel disappointed when he seems to say, "No my child, you need to go through this." It often makes me say, "Why? How can this be for my good? Won't it do damage?" But we know that all things work out for good to them that love God, even if we don't see it ourselves. God does not ask us to always understand, but he does want us to trust him and be obedient. When we don't, as much as we wouldn't want to admit it, we doubt God and his awesome power. Here is another fitting verse to go with that:

1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

God bless you all throughout your week and remember "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."(1 Cor. 10:31)

My God

What is God really like?

Nahum 1:2-8
God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.
The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
The LORD is good, and a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

Another Post

So, I haven't posted in a week so I figured I would share a few verses again.

Obadiah :3,4
The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground.
Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.

1 Corinthians 1:20
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1 Corinthians 1:31
...He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

What can separate us from the love of God?


Romans 8:35-39
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isn't that amazing. Nothing can separate us from God's love.

Romans 5:3-5
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

These verses were a great encouragement to me today. Our family is going through a really hard time right now and it is very hard to see the light. I ask you if you would pray for us continually.
