His Love

Last week, I encountered a situation that challenged my faith. I wasn't sure if I would be able to get my teaching license in the state of Wisconsin. Yesterday, it came in the mail. So, can you imagine how silly I feel? All that worrying and fretting - for nothing!

Why, oh why, can't I just trust God to work out the details? When I realized that God had a plan, I was disappointed in myself. Where was my faith? Just in my head and not in my heart? Why can't I respond to challenges of faith better? And in this self-degrading moment, a song came and then a book and scriptures to flood my mind with truth.

His love is not changed by my mistakes. His love for me is more amazing than I could ever imagine. I might be disappointed in myself, but God's primary emotion remains love. Nothing can separate me from this love that is beyond comprehension.

How has God reached down from on high to touch your life this week?

I am so excited that God provided for you. We all stress and worry over certain situations but God knows that and shows up to increase our faith. Praise God for working everything out for you and I pray that you have a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing with us today!

I disappoint myself all the time and I know the enemy just LOVES to use that against me! Memorizing Romans 8:38-39 has been such a blessing to me! Thanks for this reminder and congratulations on your teaching certificate!

God Bless You,

I am also grateful that nothing can separate me from His love, especially my unfaithfulness. I am thankful that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. I am thankful that I am steadier than I was last year. My growth is slower than I want, but true growth is a painful process, being stripped of old patterns sometimes requires a ripping apart. Bur He is there always to apply a healing balm and a new skin, His glory. I thank Him for redemption.
I also thank Him that I discovered a new blog all the way in North India that shines with His glory and flowers! Check out Yesu Garden It is beautiful. Be blessed, Heather.

That's neat that He sent those comforting words to you just when you needed them. Those kind of situations can sure get us all worked up.

My children and I have been doing a day to day study of our solar system. Last night I was telling my husband of some things we have learned through our study and I was absolutely amazed at how AWESOME AND BIG our God is and how He cares about our every little detail in the midst of such a big and powerful universe.

I believe I was reading Psalm 104 as my thoughts started to stray on the above meditations of this world He created.

Amen! I'm so thankful that His love and how He treats me isn't dependant upon how I feel about myself, or about Him. He does what He does because of a shameless love He has for me... and if that wasn't enough, He's already taken care of ALL the details.. wow!

Have a great rest of the weekend :o)
