Hello!

Welcome to my blog. I put a little bit of everything on here: recipes, faith, DIY and beauty posts. I am so glad you are here! 

YOU ARE A GOOD GOOD FATHER

YOU ARE A GOOD GOOD FATHER

In life, we sometimes are faced with circumstances that seem unimaginable. It may be that it seems impossible that we will get married, be healthy or our broken relationship will be healed. Things can leave us hopeless and faithless. I know, I have been there before. I have seen things that seem so far beyond repair. 

BUT God can make the most broken and dirty things new

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
— Isaiah 43:18-19

I remember days when I struggled with depression that was so bad I wondered if I would ever be okay again. Even though those days were very hard, it became one of the biggest blessings in my life. I learned to trust God in a way that I had never known before. I am more thankful for my struggle because I wouldn't be the person I am today without it.

Maybe today you are in a season where you are struggling to have hope and faith. I want to remind you that God is so good, He loves you very much, and He wants what is best for you. He can heal anything. Nothing is impossible for Him. When we are in seasons of hopelessness all we need is to do is turn toward Him and have faith that His Words are true. 

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.
— Matthew 17:20

A small act of faith can MOVE mountains. 

I truly believe that when we choose to trust God even when all odds are against us and leave everything in His hands, that is beautiful. I have learned that in that surrender is the abundance Jesus talks about in John 10:10. I believe that it opens up the door to an aspect of our relationship with God that is so special. Learning to trust God leads to abiding faith and peace. It leads to special times with God that can only happen in complete surrender. It is so good. 

When I am in need of faith I have a list of things that help me to practice what I am saying because there are times I believe something but don't always feel it. These things include worshiping, praying for others, giving thanks, and being creative. We are all different so something that works for me might not work for you and we all need to find what works for us. But doing an action to back up your faith helps you to surrender because you are focusing on something else and leaving the rest up to God. We may have to do it again and again and again but God is faithful and will be with us.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
— Isaiah 40:29

Let us keep choosing God even when it is hard and trusting that He loves us and have the best plans for us.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— Jeremiah 29:11

Have a wonderful day!
