    Saturday Thoughts: Trusting God through Disappointment

    I’ve told you guys before how Justin (my husband) and I have been trusting God ever since we moved to TN. We’ve been living by faith and I have constantly sought God’s will and plan for our lives. Last month I thought the Lord told me something, that a financial miracle was coming by the end of April. And I mean, I heard it multiple times when I was spending my quiet time with Him. When it didn’t come, I thought the Lord told me He was testing my faith and that the miracle would arrive within the week because I passed the test. A week has gone by and…

    Monday’s Encouragement: God Has a Plan

    One thing God has been teaching me for the past 7 months is that He always has a plan for us. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer. 29:11) 11 In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory. (Eph. 1:11-12) 39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had…

    Monday’s Encouragement: Don’t Fear

    Growing up I struggled with a lot of fears, some I still have today. Here are just some of the fears I have or used to have, just to give you an idea: pain needles heights bees (or any stinging insect) spiders ants public speaking looking stupid sharks betrayal not being accepted failure As I said, those are just some of the fears. But we can’t go through life being comfortable and never have anything bad happen to us; not in a sinful world anyway. Fear is going to come to all of us. It is one of the ways the enemy wants to manipulate us and stop us from…

    Monday Encouragement: God’s Plan is Perfect

    There are many times when I question what God’s plan is for my life. Things go wrong or don’t turn out how I expected and I wonder if God is there and knows what’s going on. Did He intend for this to happen? Does He remember my bills or deadlines? Does He know how old I am? Does He remember how long I’ve been waiting for this dream to come to fruition? What we all need to remember is that God’s plan is perfect. Whether we’re in hard times or good times, whether we’re seeing our dreams come true or still feel like we’re wandering in the dark – God…

    Monday Encouragement: Trust God’s Timing

    Every Monday I want to encourage everyone for the week to come. This week’s encouragement: Trust God’s timing! I know how hard it is to trust in God’s timing. We want things done now. We have deadlines and due dates. We think we’re ready and we think whatever we’re asking of God, or whatever God has promised, should happen right now. I felt that way for 18 years waiting for my husband, and now we feel that way about our financial situation. But God’s timing is always perfect. He brought Justin and I together at the right time and He’ll deliver our financial miracle at the right time. God has…

    Steven Furtick – Good Morning Midnight

    I watched this video on Thursday after talking to my mom about how both our families (me and my husband, and then my mom and dad) are going through hard times right now but we are determined to keep trusting God no matter what. I didn’t plan on watching this video. I knew I needed to write this post and the Lord told me to go on YouTube and this video just “happened” to be on the front page. In it, Steven talks about how if you’re going through the midnight hour when you can’t see what God’s doing, when you feel confused or lost, you need to memorize, mobilize,…
