“Stay where you are. Something very bad is coming, but if you remain faithful to Me, you will be truly blessed.” I heard these words many years ago when God spoke direction into my life, and true to His prediction, bad came. However, no matter what life has issued, remaining focused on God and trusting in His will has given a peace that defies understanding. For me, there is no greater blessing possible than His presence.
I pray that many who feel drawn by God to His Son hearken to His voice and grow in connection with Him. No matter who we are, we’ll endure difficulties in this world. We can, those of us who entrust our lives to Christ, experience peace, hope, and even joy during those times. When His Holy Spirit lives within us, when we place Him, first and foremost, at our center, we are filled to overflowing with His qualities, touching the lives of others as well. All by the work of His hand.
I’m the mother of four and stepmother of one, all of which are amazing people. As they’ve gotten older now, only one is still at home. My husband, Chris, and I have celebrated our thirteenth year of marriage this past spring. I’ve lived most of my life in northern New Hampshire where the beauty of God’s work of nature inspires me greatly. I enjoy taking pictures, making puzzles, and generally being a homebody. Most importantly, I love to tell the story of Jesus and His love!
