Thanks for the Jump Start

Wow...when I put out the plea for scriptures in my last post, I was overwhelmed! You guys are amazing. GOD is amazing. I had people posting that had never posted before and they asked God to give them just the verse I needed. Isn't that so cool?

I wrote all the references in my journal and then sat on my bed with my Bible and looked each one up. And SPOKE each one out loud. To say I was moved is an understatement.

Some things I was reminded of:
I don't need to be afraid
I am loved
God is blessing me
Nothing can separate me from God's love
GOD is my strength, I don't do this thing called life alone
He prays for me when I have no words
and on and on and on......

The other awesome thing that happened is how God used that blog post in the lives of others. I got several emails telling me how as they were reading that post they felt it was just for them! That's how God works. Using our struggles to help others. I love that, don't you?

So. Thank you!! Thank you for caring enough about me that you took the time to comment. Thank you for walking this journey with me. Thank you for praying for and with me.

Some exciting news to share.

David has met with his dad TWICE!!!

And I, who thought I might never drive again and for sure would never travel.....I am flying to Florida next week!! YAY GOD!

Once again, thanks for being such a huge part of the beauty from all these ashes.

You are loved,

Stalled. Need a Favor

Stalled. Completely stalled in my walk with the Lord.

Friends and I are reading through C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters again and discussing it. Yesterday I said that there are so many times that I don't even bother to read my Bible because I am only doing it to "get through" it. Then I realized that I was letting satan win. I need to be reading my Bible (out loud) no matter what!! It is alive & active and there is no way that I can be speaking the Living Word and not be changed.

Here is where I ask a favor of you. Would you leave me a scripture reference. I will be looking them up and speaking them out loud. Knowing that God is behind all of this...I can't wait to see where He sends me.

You all mean more to me than I can even express. These past three years would have been unbearable without you. Thank you!!

Excited to start reading,
