  1. Holley,
    What a reassuring post! I’m so thankful that I worship the God who stays! Humans are fickle and if given the opportunity, they will desert us. God is the only One who will NEVER leave nor forsake us. When I look back over my past and see His faithfulness to see me through the valleys, it gives me hope and courage that I can face whatever the future holds if I face it with Him – holding onto His righteous right hand.

  2. Holly I am glad too be saved. I have God with me. My family all of them are not Saved. I am the only one saved Cousin Aunt’s Sister’s Dad Nephews and Nieces etc none of them saved. Apart from my Husband he is saved. I wish they see how important it is to be saved. What lovely things they are all loosing out on. That the God who made this world has for them. Plus how much God loves him. They don’t know what is ahead of them. But God does. Like my Aunt my late Mum’s sister who didn’t expect this 20 years ago. Here Husband went for a lie down and never woke up again. So that makes me all the more important and glad too be saved. As from the minute you get up in the morning you never know if you will see the next day. Only God knows that. I can’t tell any of my family they need to get saved or a row go up. They say don’t preach or keep your religion too yourself. So all I can do is pray for them and live my life as follower of Jesus in front of them. Hope they see Jesus in me. Want what I have that is Jesus for themselves. My Dad is 80 in February the best present he could ever give me or leave me when his time up on earth is that he got saved before he left earth. No better present could be give me his Daughter. My late Mum used to say to me. Were did I get you Dawn. You go to Church read your Bible and say your prayers. I said as I could not preach to her or tell her she needed to get saved. She hardly ever went to Church. But both my parents set me and my two sisters to Sunday School when small. At the time not found of. But thank full to them that they did. As I do remember a lot of the Children Bible songs today. A lot of them very good for us today as Adults. Do apply for us as Adults. Like Jesus loves all the Children of the world red and yellow black and white. We as Adults are to do the same. Plus Jesus hands were kind hands doing good to all. Another good song. I learnt at Sunday School that is even good for us as Adults to do today. But this what I told my Mum when she said about me going to Church and reading my Bible and saying my Prayers. I never preached to her as row go up. I just said God has me here for a reason. So God had. See I am thankful my parents even though not saved sent us to Sunday School. I got to learn stories Jesus as well. That I can apply to my life today as Adult. I know God hold my future. Like the song. He God the whole world in his hands and in his hands he’s got me and you brother. How true that is. So we don’t need to worry no matter what. I found this saying I don’t know we’re. Don’t worry about tomorrow God is all ready There. How true that is too. We serve a big big mighty God. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Xx

  3. Boy did I ever need to see this today…..feeling overwhelmed as we’ve just moved to a new place(military) and most likely moving again in a month or two (same area though) I’m trying to focus on the fact that He is with me in all this

    I want to recommend to you a group of military wives who meet and read the book ‘After the Boxes are Unpacked’ by Susan Miller. I just finished up with my group via zoom. I met some great women who, like me and you moved lots of times. It’s a wonderful Christian group. Very supportive. They totally understand how difficult this is. Please look into this. You will love it. Thanks for sharing. Dee

  5. Holley,

    You always have the right words to calm weary souls. Life is tough at times & this year has been exceptionally so. But God is in the midst of it all caring for each of us. The Psalmist said it best in Psalm 23:4-5 “Yea thou I walk through the valley of shadow of death I will fear no evil. For thou art with me. Thy rod & staff they comfort me.” No matter what comes your way-job loss, illness, marriage upheaval, etc. He will guide your steps. He knows you intimately & won’t leave you wandering in the desert. Unlike the human disciples who deserted Jesus when times got tough He won’t forsake us ever. Take heart fellow Christians-Jesus is your overcomer. You & Him make a great team!

    Blessings 🙂
