Okay...as promised in my last post, I wanted to celebrate another blog milestone for me. 150...WOW! Little did I know when starting a blog I would have this much to say...well for those of you who know me, I really am never at a lose for words. hehehe!!!
So I am inviting all who visit my BLOG to... JOIN WITH ME in Passing the word around! I DO so enjoy giving away goodies! Compiled for this GiveAway pleasure are a bunch of treasures I have either picked up, created or just for whatever reason thought they might be nice for a giveaway. ... AND...you never know what else just might be added to this pile!!!
Here's what you need to do...leave me a note/comment saying you'd like to be entered. Then, if you decide, copy/paste my picture and advertise on your blog for you to be entered AGAIN in my GiveAway. But... be sure to let me know you will advertise so I can add you again. I will keep my GiveAway open until June 7th. Then on June 7th in the afternoon after Church and lunch I will have one of my family members help me choose a lucky winner.
I have shared a little about what has been going on in our lives and lately I have been going through a what I'd call a dry patch. Have you ever been in a time where you know GOD's promises, you read them, you have experienced them in the past but it seems in the "RIGHT now" of life, they are very far away. That's what I have been experiencing this past week. I think I am beginning to understand what BLIND Faith really means. I am really walking by FAITH and NOT by sight right now. It doesn't give any sense of *feelings* or warm fuzzy's, that IS for sure! I don't Know if I should turn to the right or left. And, when I cry out to the Lord, all there seems to be is silence. Nothing.
So how do you make it through a time like this?
Be Still and KNOW that I am GOD....Psalms 46:10
For me it has been trying to stand on promises that GOD has made real to me. And..I do believe when you become still, you will hear.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1
So as I have been still...though I do NOT know what to do right now, GOD is the GREAT *I AM*, my Jehovah Jirah ~ My provider...GOD is and WILL still be my strength through this time. It gives me HOPE..that when I can't feel or see HIM, I can still have Faith because HE is.
My family has many BIG decisions facing us in the next few weeks. There continues to be no job prospects for my husband as of yet, revealed to us. We continue to seek GOD's very best in this but are becoming weary. My self sure wants to get in there and fix it..but I kNOW that's not what I am suppose to do. So, In HIM I seek my rest, HIS perfect rest until HE chooses to reveal His Will in all matters to us.
I like to share from my heart and life because I KNOW I am not alone. Many are out there who feel as if no one knows what its like to be going through...whatever you are experiencing. I don't have the answers, but I do KNOW who does. I hope that as you read my deepest thoughts and struggles, you will know that I can emphathize with you. As I continue to walk in my Faith, my overall expectation is that GOD be glorified first, and then HIS perfect will be revealed and worked out in us. He didn't say this life would be easy, he said he'd be with us, walking right by our side...and I DO believe this with my whole heart.
Only In HIS Strength...Lorena
