Wrestling With God

Whosoever Will, May Come

For three days I wasn’t able to post anything because I had accidentally deleted this blog. I meant to delete an old, neglected blog, but for some reason this blog got deleted instead. If you click on that big ? encased in a blue circle on the bottom right of your screen, it will take you to the help section. You will see others asking how do they get their blog restored. The answer is you only can if you contact WordPress within 30 days and tell them it was a mistake. I thought about starting a new blog from scratch, but that means losing my followers. So I sent emails to WordPress support. It took 2 days for them to restore this blog.

During those 2 days I did a lot of reflecting. I thought about prayer and my own praying. Was I seeing answers? Was my heart right?…

Let go..

MommyUnderConstruction

Forgiveness is not just a religious thing,

It’s for Everyone who wants to be emotionally and spiritually Free

I can choose to replay hurtful scenarios in my mind or I can choose to let it go and forgive for the sake of my well being.

I know its easier said then done but seriously if you think about it , replaying hurtful things in your mind and carrying bitterness everywhere you go – sounds more miserable.

Forgiveness is not a one time thing , it’s a daily process.

Choosing every day to forgive is another step closer to complete freedom .

Forgiving yourself is important too

This is something I struggle with daily .. I am quite hard on myself but all it does is ruin my peace and joy.

All humanity is flawed

We have to understand we are imperfect people..this will give us room to have compassion for…

Confessions of a MoM..

MommyUnderConstruction

I never understood why God gave me four girls .. I first thought with my first daughter Larisa , how perfect she was and how happy I was to have her .

I always knew I wanted her to have a little sister ..every little girl should have a sister  – I mean , I did .. Me and my sister always did everything together ! I mean EVERYTHING ! .. We had the same friends we even were in the same class in school
We got married the same time we had children the same time we even live close by each other (Not on Purpose)

So you know what I mean.. It was nice having someone to talk to someone to share secrets with someone to have your back.. And that’s what I wanted for my daughter Larisa.

Two years later surely I found out I was pregnant…

I Love This Story! Please Read It

Faithrises

There was once a man who didn’t believe in God, and he didn’t hesitate to let others know how he felt about religious holidays like Christmas. His wife however, did believe, and she raised their children to also have faith in God and, His Son, Jesus, The Christ, despite his disparaging comments…

One snowy Christmas Eve, his wife was taking their children to a Christmas Eve service in the farm community in which they lived. She asked him to come, but he refused.  “That story is nonsense!” he said. “Why would God lower Himself to come to Earth as a man? That’s ridiculous!” So she and the children left, and he stayed home.

A while later, the winds grew stronger and the snow turned into a blizzard. As the man looked out the window, all he saw was a blinding snowstorm.  He sat down to relax before the fire…

When You Are Weakest, You Are Strongest

"A SPIRIT-Kissed Soul" by Tai East

ASKS

(Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.)

When we’re feeling troubled, weak, and torn or let down our first thought or initial assessment is usually not that we’re positioned in a place of eternal strength. In all honesty, our initial response emotionally is usually a sense of brokenness, hopelessness, and despair. But The Word of God says, when we’re at our lowest and weakest point, that’s when we’re able to truly experience the perfection that is His grace; that’s when we’re able too see the strength and glory of Christ come to fruition in it’s greatest form within our lives. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NOG- But He told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you…

You’re Never Disadvantaged

Vistas of Hope

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that is deeply hurt, you that have been loved less by those you expected to love you the most. You that have been let down by your family. You that was gracefully broken at a time you had no control over your emotions. You that have been a victim of real love but in bad timing. You that have received more rejections than acceptances. You that have received more rejections because of your address than your age and weight combined, this letter is for you.

Be Still

Operation Sunshine

Today has been one of those days! My mind is going a million miles an hour and I can’t seem to reel it in. There are problems in my life that I can’t control, things that I can’t fix, and it drives me crazy! It makes me feel defeated and worthless when I can’t get a hold on every little battle that rises up in my life. But it shouldn’t be this way.

In Psalm 46:10 it is written “Be still, and know that I am God”.

Be still! But how? How, Lord, can I be still when it feels like my world is coming down all around me. How can I be still when there are a few more things I can try to do to fix the problem. Lord, I know you’re all powerful and all knowing. But just give me one more shot at this.

But, alas…

Listening and thinking… some thoughts about the future

TLP

Every so often I wonder if maybe this blog has run its course and, as with all good things, that maybe the time has come for its end. Maybe I should end this one and start another one. Maybe I should stop blogging and write books… maybe an online magazine… or maybe I should stop writing and take up golf.

Oh, maybe not golf; you probably need to be able to see to do that.

I want a YouTube Channel!

Of course, I’d need to learn video editing and… you probably need to see for that too.

I go through this every year around this time; is it a case of “spring fever”? Nah, maybe more like cabin fever; we still have snow multiple times each week! Whatever it is, it’s irritating. Yet I fear this blog is a bit one dimensional because I’m always going through books of the…

Common Eating – The Eucharist

Dining with Donald

Here is the list of the previous posts in this series. I’m simply numbering them for convenience sake. Post 1, post 2, post 3, post 4, post 5, and post 6.

I have eliminated one of the posts from this series. That was a post with some bibliographic references. Since the time I first devised the course, I have created a much larger food related bibliography called Eucharistic Eating. This is the book list that I will continue to add to on an ongoing basis.

This week we come to the class on the Eucharist. This class, although only five weeks into the course, is the high point of the Common Eating course.  This is the meal that Jesus commanded his followers to continue celebrating after his death, and promised that he would celebrate again with them in his Father’s kingdom.

The common…
