A Look Back (January)

(Here is my collection from January of last year. As I looked on these, I remembered that Keith, my husband, had received word he would only be working four days a week until further notice. My prayers were on this. I do not remember why I wrote the one about my divorce but I believe it's very prevalent to parents in this situation.)

"When there is a divorce, you get the same questions. When there is a bad divorce and your child looks exactly like your ex, you get the same questions. Most of you (Facebook friends) know what happened in my first marriage. As I was watching Tucker, my son, walk into the store last night, I noticed he even walks like Andy (my ex).
They haven't had a tremendous amount of contact over the years and so I always get tickled when I see his characteristics come out in Tucker. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me what a merciful God we have. He took every good quality Andy has and put it in this sweet young man. Even though the marriage didn't end as it was intended, God still honored me with the good memories and the love that was shared. God is good isn't He?"

"There is always someone worse off than you. There is always someone better off than you. Quit comparing your life to everyone else and do what's right for you; which may be a tent in the woods, or a mansion in the hills. You are your own fate."

"You don't realize what a blessing it is to be born poor, until you are required to repeat those skills later."

James 2:5
Listen my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?

A New Year, A New View

I have left my blog dormant for a while for two reasons. One, I realized every time I had testimony to share, I was reporting miniature versions of it on Facebook. Two, we placed membership at a new church, which was also a new faith to me. We have now been there a year. I have been waiting on God to direct me, waiting for Him to tell me when I should bring this concept up at the new church. 

I have felt God tug on my heart for a few months now. Before Christmas, I decided that for 2013 or at least part of it, I would go back through all my posts from the previous year on Facebook, and post them according to the months. I'm sure I will still create mini posts there and will try to incorporate them here as well. Although, this blog has been set up to share testimony of God's work in our/my life, it is so beneficial when we receive divine revelation from the Holy Spirit as well. One of the HS' jobs is to provide us comfort. He gave me so much last year. I want to post those as well. 

As always, if you have testimony that you would like to share where God has done a working in your life, please feel free to email me with your testimony. If, however, you receive revelation, spiritual guidance, spiritual wisdom that would benefit, uplift and edify the Church, feel free to send this to me as well.


John 14:26
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
