When I'm Invisible


Recently I had the opportunity to visit with a young mother who was sharing her heart with me.  She shared the struggles of being a new mom, the struggles of having to keep the house, and finding a balance between who she is as an individual, a wife, a mother, and friend.  It struck me when she said: “I think I’m invisible…even with the people I know.”  Now, this is not just a very shy and quiet mother who just sits in the pews.  This is a woman who has been actively involved in her local church, in the lives of individuals, and in the community.

He made a change...now what?

I have been looking back over our journey and began thinking of how much God has done in our life.  I look at not only how much He has changed who I am in knowing Him through the salvation experience I made many years ago, but more so how He has changed me as an individual, a wife, a friend, and even a servant for Him.  In the last blog, I pointed out the importance of how Knowing Him seems to make a change on us not only inwardly, but outwardly as well.  I was reminded of a the old song entitled, “He made a change”.

1-31-13 - KNOW THE LORD

I once heard, “you don’t throw something away just because it’s a little broken”.  I see how applicable this is when it comes to our lives as well.  This week has been no exception.
 
This week, I have encountered stories from other women who are struggling with areas in their lives.  One young lady came to me and discussed some areas in her life where she has begun to see she needs something more.  She has lived a life of drugs and alcohol, of immorality, and great sin.  She had even been told by someone that she was not worthy of the Christian life and God couldn’t forgive her.

When the church is gone

As we have been able to go from place to place and view the beautiful sights of this country, we seen astonishing things.  We have described some of the most precious places to you.   We have given you images of secluded places, natural beauty, sights that were unimaginable and so many that were breathtaking.  It has been so exciting to see what new and beautiful sight the Lord would bless us with each day.   However, we have also shared with you things like forgotten faces of those we have encountered.
