Love Triumped

LOVE TRIUMPED…

Jesus came to a broken world; a world in need of love, healing, and peace. He came to this world with a humble presence, wrapped in love, and the only gift of life. He arrived as a babe, a precious gift as the angels rejoiced. Although the angels couldn’t understand the salvation He would be; they celebrated Him. As the month of my anniversary … [Read More...]

ADORNING OUR CHARACTER

ADORNING OUR CHARACTER…

Your adornment must not be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. (I Peter 3:-3-4) These days most movies or television shows portray the husband as a joke. … [Read More...]

Sing A New Song 02

SING A NEW SONG…

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 Our heart is the totality of our will and emotions. Lately my emotions have been all over the place, specifically fear. Fear can be healthy, but it can also be crippling, it's distracting and demands our attention. I've learned in the past month that I'm either … [Read More...]

HIS LOVE IN US

HIS LOVE IN US…

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. (1 Corinthians 13:13) I can't tell you how much I love my husband. I never knew I could love someone so long or so much. We've only been married for 8 years in December, but life has brought us some hard struggles. He's seen my best and my worst. We've … [Read More...]

BATTLE SONG OF PRAISE

BATTLE SONG OF PRAISE…

During the darkest period of my marriage, I had to make a choice who was going to win the battle for my husband’s heart. Yet, as the words of my husband rang in my ears, “I have decided to walk away from God,” I was determined to fight for it. Although my husband refused to reveal the reason behind his decision, I felt blindsided.  As the days … [Read More...]

Thanking God For Him

THANKING GOD FOR HIM…

 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Philippians 1:3 I would have never guessed the man I'm married would be the man God had for me. We were so different and seemed to be on different paths in life. As always, God had other plans for the two of us that we didn't really know. After almost seven years of marriage to this man of mine, I can … [Read More...]

THANKFULLNESS ISNT BORN

THANKFULLNESS ISN’T BORN…

A long time ago, I wrote this statement in a blog, “A thankful spirit isn’t born; it’s learning to rest in the goodness of God.” It’s hard to rest when your world is spinning out of control. No matter where you turn, someone is calling your name or demanding your attention whether it’s a business report, eight loads of laundry, or bills waiting to … [Read More...]

GOD'S LOVINGLY CONCERNED

GOD’S LOVINGLY CONCERNED…

If faith was never tried, we would never see the impossible. Right now, it may feel as life is heading towards the edge of impossible.  All of the turns seem to be going to a dead end, there is no exit in sight.  Bills are piling up, children need school items, and the car needs attention.  Yet, even though you have tried to fix the problems, the … [Read More...]

RECEIVING GRACE…

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16) We've talked a lot about giving grace to our husbands this month, but what about receiving grace? I used to think giving grace was the hardest to do, but I'm finding now that receiving grace is pretty hard … [Read More...]

TO WALK OR STAY…

I have a friend who is struggling with a situation in her life. The enemy is trying his best to steal, kill, and destroy all that she has. In the midst of this, God is reaching out to her and asking if she will walk in patience with Him. Will she give Him the time needed to turn this around? We understand patience when the context is to be … [Read More...]

Grace Pass

A GRACE PASS…

We are so excited to have the opportunity to have a guest blogger this month to share more on  "GRACE". Mary Helen is a pastor’s wife and mother who has a passion for writing to let Christian women know they are not alone; somewhere out there stands a wife, a mom, and a woman in the same shoes and a God who loves them dearly.  I know you will be … [Read More...]

Which Will You Choose

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE…

 “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18) So many times in my marriage I have the opportunity to choose how I'll react to situations. I can choose to be hateful, rude, and bitter or I can choose to be loving, forgiving, and gracious. It's not always … [Read More...]
