Infertility – Respecting Parents

Are you finding it harder to spend time with friends who have children? You try to find other topics to talk about, but the conversation always seems to lead back their kids. It gets overwhelming to listen to. How can I ask you to respect parents when you’re frustrated that they don’t seem to respect you and what you’re going through?

Ezra – God’s Redeeming Grace

When there was something important the Lord wanted His followers to hear in the Bible, He would repeat the word two to three times to draw attention to it. He continues to do this in our present lives as well. This message of redeeming grace continues to come up in my daily reading, in testimonies I’m listening to, and in my own life’s circumstances.

A Surprise Getaway

He gave me one hint about a month before we left – It was something on my bucket list from a few years ago. He wasn’t sure if I was still interested in doing it, but thought we’d try. I knew based on a couple of things that it had to be something within driving distance. There were two things that came to mind by that radius of options – a concert or the Highland Games. My guess was the games. I mentioned it to him, but thankfully Michael isn’t one to crack, so he didn’t confirm if it was or not.

As I resisted the Devil and drew near to God, He drew near to me. I could feel the anger give way to peace. Through asking the Lord for help and singing the songs, I held up my fists of prayer and praise. The Lord then guarded my mind and heart and the enemy had to flee.

Life Away From Home

Over the years the meaning of the word home has really intrigued me. Is home a place, a building,  the people, or something else? My years as an immigrant in Switzerland have taught me that the feeling of home isn’t the place, although places hold memories. Home is where the people we love are. Where we can be ourselves, totally relax, and be comfortable – a place of belonging.

Why I Created Our New Verse Packs

… “Lord, I am so done with all of this. I need You! I know I need to be in Your word. I’m sorry for trying to be in control and run everything by my own wisdom… Show me the way. I’m tired of this life without You being in the center of it all. Please help me to be disciplined in time with You and in the Bible every day. I need Your sustenance. I love You. I’ll do whatever it takes. I just need more of You…”
