I'm so glad you stopped by to sit with me for a while. Maybe you just needed some time for yourself today. Well, let me get my cup of coffee and you get what you need and let's sit and share. I'm someone who wants to live for God more than anything else. Through my words, I want to come closer, know Him more, love Him more and pour my heart out to Him. I'm a mom of three, a wife, a daughter, and I've made my life as an Educator in Early Childhood. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come often.

Words For When I'm Broken
When I am feeling as if I am on my own
And there's just no one to truly share what's on
my heart, there are just so many scriptures that are like
that smack in the head, saying, "Wake up to reality!
You're not alone! He does care."
In the midst of what seems without promise
In the midst of what appears lost and without hope
or a chance of ever changing, I hide in the pages of God's
words, where I can wrap myself in the blanket of His promises and be assured that He is for me.
I am reminded that even when I
don't see the answer to my heart's expectation,
It doesn't mean I am unloved,
or that God is punishing me
or that God is not real.
His Word tells me that I can put my trust in Him
and wait. Oh, yes, it's hard to wait. No, it's super hard to wait. Especially when we are hurting through the wait.
But, God's word says that there is nothing hard for him.
So, as I wait, He is working in my life.
He is working in my circumstances.
He is taking care of those things in my life that I don't see,
those things I can't understand because my focus can get lost in my pain and my immediate needs.
Yet, God looks into my life and doesn't just see my "right now". He is the God of my tomorrow and as He works in my life, he is also taking care of the answer I need for the moment that has yet to happen in my life.
His word, His words, are words for when I am broken. When I feel like a rag doll, pulled apart and thrown to the corner of a dark, cold room. His words whisper into the place of my abandonment and soothe me.
