What Can I Pray For?

The adoption process has been just like I imagined…in only one way: we are waiting for a baby.  Other than that, the paperwork grew beyond my expectations quickly in extent and content, the support and encouragement from friends, family, and even strangers has exceeded our imaginations, and the emotions and prayers my husband and I […]

Is God Good ALL The Time?

I recently received some good news from our doctor about our current pregnancy that was quite the opposite of what the doctor had told us just 2 weeks prior.  The news clearly revealed God’s hand in performing a miraculous work.  Even the doctor was scratching his head at the findings. Because we are sharing our […]

Waiting on the Lord

A baby! I can’t believe we’re having a baby! This little surprise came to us right in the middle of moving homes and jobs! The Lord’s timing is impeccable, that’s for sure! Although He has chosen to bless us with this little one at this exact moment does not mean that we didn’t do some […]

Who is God?

In my small group today we were talking about different attributes of God.  How do I see God and who is He to me?  In the Old Testament, the Israelites only referred to God by his characteristics… Yaweh-Lord Jehovah Jireh-Provider Elohim-Creator ….And so many more. Our group mentioned traits like God is love, just, faithful, […]

A Double Blessing

On Mother’s Day, our family was excited to announce to our church family that we were being obedient to God’s calling on our life as we moved to bring a baby home through adoption. The support we received from everyone humbled us but gave us strength in our new journey. The very next day, I […]

Choosing Perfect Peace

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Psalm 43:5a, NASB Have you all recently heard the Casting Crowns song, “Oh my soul”? The song is so beautiful and so biblical. Why are we distressed? Our fear will have to face the God we know and He will […]

Abraham’s Servant: An Old Testament Example

Recently I have been diving into the Old Testament. As I was reading Genesis, I came across a very key character, yet he is often overlooked. In Genesis 24, we see Abraham asking his servant to go out and find a wife for Isaac. The servant makes an oath to Abraham and sets out for […]

Just Scripture

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]
