It's not easy but I know the Lord who has brought me this far is still there for me, VE gone too far and I can't quit now. I was totally knocked out during the week as you can see it clearly from my face, I can't believe that I didn't eat since Monday I totally lost my appetite. But it's Saturday and I feel I'm strong and good to continue #IndependentLady . #AllByMyself#hisgraceissufficient#DivadeoHerbals
🌿 “Every painted sky a canvas of Your grace.” // John & I have been praying a lot lately about not loosing A W E in how great God is—how mighty & powerful He is; how great His grace is; how great His Love is; how good He is. We realized that in the midst of how messy life can be, sometimes it’s hard to feel that same awe & wonder in God as it was when maybe you first learned about Him & the Gospel really hit you. But it’s such an amazing thing to find that wonder again. To have a strong desire to know Him more & see how great He really is. A verse that’s been on my heart lately in sight of this has been Acts 2:25:28, ending in this:
“...You will make me FULL of GLADNESS with Your presence.” ❤️
As I’ve been praying to find wonder in the majesty of who God is, He has been so faithful in revealing Himself. I just wanted to share this in hopes of encouraging any of you who need to find that awe in who God is again. May you never loose WONDER in Him. 💕
“When we compare our weaknesses to others strengths, we neglect to remember others have weaknesses too. We constantly compare ourselves to this illusion which In reality is just a “mask of perfection”.” #measureup#nlstudentsx#Hisgraceissufficient
It's 11pm. I have been doing house stuff and what seems like hours of home work all day long. Researching and about to start a 20 page paper for one class on top of another paper to revise and submit. If I were to honestly sit down and think about how I'm feeling and what I'm experiencing in life, it would be so easy to feel sorry for myself, to quit and use my current situation as an excuse. Exhausted from trying to stay ahead of the game, positive, and not focus on all the negatives, stress, and deadlines in my life right now. IF I was motivated by feelings that's what I would say. However, All I can think of in this moment when my mind wants to become overwhelmed and I have to be up for school soon is the verse 2 Corinthians 12:9- "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me." Instead of letting the hardest and most stressful times of life eat away at you and steal your joy- choose an attitude of gratitude! I'm not moved by circumstance. Rest in His grace. Where I am weak He is strong! He has never failed me yet. My heart is full of peace and joy. Peace that doesn't even make sense to most and Joy that is my strength every single day. It's truly amazing what trusting fully in God's word can do for you. #PressOn#HisGraceIsSufficient#RestInHisWord#ThatViewTho
Sometimes this wife needs a simple reminder of what WIFELIFE God's way looks like. The busyness of life easily convolutes things and the kind of wife God desires you and me to be gets lost in the mix. It's time to realign our wifely focus. .
Today, I'm reminding myself and you of 4 important verses that provide clear direction for you as a wife and will help to realign your focus if needed. .
When reminders come it's time to do two things: .
1.) Evaluate where you stand in light of God's direction and confess your shortcomings if needed. .
2.) Recommit yourself to being a godly wife through your obedience to God's instructions and your dependence on Christ to put it into practice. .
Lastly, set aside 2-5 minutes today to personally look up these verses and ask God to provide you with understanding and strength to carry them out.
God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness.
Titus 2:11-14 MSG
God's grace is sufficient. If I come out of surgery tomorrow and my knee is finally fixed, it is sufficient. If I come out and once again things aren't holding together properly, it is sufficient. Because tomorrow is unknown to me, it is sufficient. He is enough, no matter what happens tomorrow, next month, or even next year. To God be the glory.
Had to sit on the sidelines because of the stitches I got due to a burpee/box jump accident but it was so worth watching my B run the race like a Champ. Reminiscing quality time, perfect weather, lots of exciting obstacles and new friends! I love how God is in control of everything and leads us in every detail, always teaching us new things and building our character to be more like Jesus!
Three years ago today you made an unexpected entrance 16 weeks early and we nearly lost you more than once.

Happy birthday and we love you Virginia Grace ❤️#hisgraceissufficient#preemie#24weeker#miraclebaby
