"Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant?" - Numbers 11:11 Our heavenly Father sends us frequent troubles to try our faith. If our faith be worth anything, it will stand the test.

Are you pursuing
For your life?
Or your plan?
God’s plan is best
No matter how lofty
Your plan may be,
God’s plan is always
Go not by your wisdom;

His plan for you;
He will gladly do;
And rest assured,
Can be better
Than God’s plan

I hear people say, “Well, I know that I don’t talk about … Continue reading Giving God Praise And Glory

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted…” Psalm 34:18
It’s officially been nine months. Nine months without that sweet encourager, prayer warrior, faithful friend, and mother of mine. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her. I will always miss her. My life has forever changed. As a dear friend of mine said, “You will never be the same.” As much as I hate change, I’m learning her statement is very true. I’ve had to slowly and painfully, but prayerfully accept that. Whether you walk the grief journey with God or not, whether you want to persevere or not, grief can teach you invaluable lessons. During my thirteen week journey through my GriefShare support group, we spent time discussing lessons of grief. So I’d like to share three lessons I have learned thus far.
Grief Is Messy
Because grief is intense, it will be…
