This Week's WORD

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
In a week of disappointment and discouragement, of tears and trials; in the midst of the noise and sometimes wondering how I'm going to come through it with my sanity intact; in the face of a pre-pubescent child whose life mission seems to be bringing me to my wits' end, I am so thankful for this faith God has given me. I am so thankful that I don't have to trust in what I see, but that I can be sure of God's faithfulness and that which I do not see with my physical eyes.

May you hear Him clearly as He speaks to your heart.

See you back here Monday!

Yes, what our physical eyes see disappoints, fails and scare us.

I'm thankful that we have spiritual sight!

Amen! and Amen!

I hope your weekend is better, and next week too! Thanks for all your support to me this week, in spite of your own trying times.

I was wondering if I could come to my "wits end" before the whole pre-pubescent years...you know just hurry up and get it over with now?

I love you girl! Way to be an amazing witness right smack dab in the middle of a hard week!

I understand being at wits end, but the cause of mine is my mother and not a child. Her health continues to decline an it is so frustrating for a control freak like me. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. My husband left you a message over on my 'birthday gift' post/comment section.

I carried this verse in my heart as I went to visit a friend today. She's dying from cancer, and our hearts are filled with grief. Still and yet, we have our faith and hope in Jesus Christ. We shared a devotional, prayed, and cried, and then I reminded her again and again of the hope of heaven and her faith that is soon to be made sight.

How thankful I am for the "sure and certain" of Jesus Christ and my future.

Thanks for checking in. And yes, a bloggy meeting in the near future would serve us all well.

I love this verse. I seem to need the constant encouragement to focus on Him and not what is seen.

Praying that next week is better for you.

I'm sorry you didn't win the blog makeover this time, but hey the face painting offer is still open. :D

Much love!
