Come In! Make Yourself at Home!

My daughters-in-law are amazing hostesses! And that’s not easy when your mother and father-in-law can visit for a week at a time. A day or two – anyone can handle, but a week – well, that requires a concerted effort. 513 more words

Sunday Scripture [Matthew 16:24-25]

Today’s scripture was the passage we read in church this morning.

It hit me hard. The words, I have read them before.

The impact, it has never been so heavy. 430 more words

I am a flawed woman after God’s heart.

I’m a woman who believes in the power of prayer & praying w/the authority He has given us.I don’t pray enough at times & feel I don’t use big words but that doesn’t matter,it’s vital to believe in the words we speak when we pray,trusting & knowing God will move mountains & work in His timing as He’s taught/teaching me to be patient & Be Still,He is in control.I’m not an expert on prayer or a Godly woman(I could never live up to such a standard)but I am a flawed woman after God’s heart,who strongly desires to be a Proverbs 31 woman,a mighty warrior in His army.I was once lost & caught up in the world,living recklessly,practicing sin,empty trying to fill in the cracks & brokenness,caught in between addictions & consumed w/lies of the enemy telling me my past & mistakes defined me.BUT God rescued me,I believe it was through the prayers of others.He’s the reason for change,for softening my calloused heart daily,for joy,teaching me(boy does He teach & deal w/me),sanctifying,& loves me in spite of me.Loves us all.I am a woman who prays because I need Him just as much as someone who doesn’t know Him,because someone’s prayers helped/still help me & I’m passionate about Him using me to help others.I refuse to give up or just sit back,I refuse to allow the enemy to think he’s winning.Addictions & chains are broken,toxic relationships end,marriages restored,healing & just so much results from the power of prayer so that He gets the glory;There’s so much need for it.I pray He continue to give me a hunger for Him & His word.I want to fearlessly & boldly put on my armor daily,Fight the good fight of faith & give Him praise & thanks through it all.He’s taught me to pray for my enemies,pray when life is good & when the storms or attacks come.He’s shown me that anything is possible as long as we believe & He is good no matter what.
