You’ll Never View Marriage The Same Way Again

Jehovah God gave all the living creatures to Adam to name but there was not a helper for him.  God saw this void and caused Adam to fall asleep.  He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh. From this rib, Jehovah God made woman and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:…

Ignite the ordinary

Simplicity in worship.  When I was a young girl in worship service, I can remember the simplicity and a strong sense of togetherness.  Our family traveled to Central Baptist Church to sing this Sunday and it was like going home.  We had a joyful time sitting in Sunday school listening to a message about putting…

Meeting God in the Broken Places (Rusty Rustenbach)

Watching the video first will move you.  Please consider spending this time with Jesus and meeting Rusty Rustenbach. A new year is upon us! God specializes in beginnings and new–“His mercies are new every morning!” “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will…

Superhero –DAD!

My youngest accidentally dropped her tooth down the drain.  She was so upset because she had labored all morning to wiggle that thing free in hopes that the tooth fairy would come that night. My husband quickly ran to her and asked which sink she had dropped her tooth in.  As I was doing laundry,…

Shining Faces

Wisdom defined is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment. Experience is often gained through mistakes and errors in judgment. In Hosea chapter 11, God proclaims His loving-kindness and how He brought His people out of slavery and stooped down to feed them.  “But the more I called to them, the farther they moved from…

God IS “sure enough”

I am back at the top of this post adding the “last chapter” of the book!  God answers prayers! Miracles happen! God spoke the verse “A cord of three strands….” into my marriage AFTER He gave the verse to us as a couple earlier that morning.  He chose to orchestrate an entire day filled with confirmation…

The Love of Jesus in Your Marriage

After my early morning post, “A cord of three strands”, my husband and I went grocery shopping before heading to church. We enjoyed seeing this beautiful statue of Mary and Joseph at our local Kroger. God is good to remind us and confirm His message.

A cord of three strands is not easily broken

A Christian marriage built on a covenant relationship can be a powerful union for God’s Kingdom work.  After the post “Breath of Heaven”, I thought of Mary and Joseph, together, as a couple.  They loved God and withstood the world because together they were strong.  Not only do you individually decide to receive Christ in…

Breath of Heaven

Amy Grant sang a beautiful Christmas song called Breath of Heaven.  It is a song of praise and soul work from Mary, the mother of Jesus.  She is unsure of the physical, emotional, and spiritual responsibility that has been placed within her. Some of the lyrics: I am waiting, in a silent prayer I am…

Daughters need their daddies

I had to do another post this morning!  My oldest daughter who is out on her own now sent this to her daddy saying how much she loved him.  This list is from http://tarahedman.com/girls-daddies-knew/.  The post is entitled “What Little Girls Wish Daddies Knew”. Dads, you have an honored spot in your daughter’s life!  Consider reading…

God will lift you up and restore

Psalm 113: 7-8 “He lifts the poor from the dirt and the needy from the garbage dump.  He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!” A local church is headed back to Guatemala to minister to children and families.  One of the ministries is working with children who live at “the…

Our Perfect Tutor

What if your problem never goes away?  Would you spend the rest of your life miserable and downtrodden? Some things we can’t change.  God in an instant can change a situation and heal.  Even so, when sin came into the world, we were faced to live with sin’s consequences. “You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for…
