  1. I am grateful to the Holy Spirit for His persistence in speaking to you and for the healing that the Lord has brought to you and many of us because you chose to walk the path He was guiding you to. Thank you.

  2. All types real, genuine reconciliations comes from our
    actions and behavior—not just words. You are what
    you do, not what you say you should do!

  3. Thank you for reminding me that God’s ways may seem questionable to me BUT only He knows the total plan and results of His ways.
    I am reminded that God’s ways are far beyond my understanding and may not involve just me BUT be His means to influence and impact other’s lives.
    Thank you for sharing your heart.

    • Hi Annetta!
      You have a beautiful name!
      Yes, God is always about the MUCH BIGGER picture, which I am too small to see.
      I sincerely appreciate your encouragement. Thank you for reading.


  4. Thank you so much for sharing! I’ve been trying to figure everything out, and have only produced anxiety as a result! You reminded me again of the truth…His ways!

    • Hi Darla!
      Yes, His ways are BIGGER and BETTER. May we are energy in trusting rather than trying to carry the weight of being all-knowing.

      I sincerely appreciate your encouragement. Thank you for reading.


  5. Lucretia you know God does not make us do anything we can’t do. If God ask us to do or say something we have to remember God will equip up to do or say it. Even if we think it sounds stuip and we are going to look stuip if it to be said in front of group of people. God if he wants us to say it. Will have a reason for us saying it. Even if we feel we are going to look stuip. God wouldn’t want to us say something if he didn’t have a reason for us to say it. It could be to teach someone in group something they need to hear. Like I felt God speaking to me one time. Saying tell your friend about the Polaroid camera and how when you get saved for the first time like the instant photo that comes out of the Polaroid camera it is blurred to begin with then as time goes on it gets clear the photo. We can see the picture probably. I was told to say this to my friend. That is like us when we get saved. The words in the Bible that we read when just a young in faith. Some we don’t understand. We have to like the Polaroid camera wait for them to become clear to us through the Holy Spirit. So we understand what God is saying to us through the part of his word we have just read. But it take time for us to have our focused to say what God is saying. Like the Polaroid picture it doesn’t become Claire right away like God’s word it doesn’t come clear to us right away. We have to wait for it to become Claire and through the holy spirit and time God’s word becomes clear to us. And as we read it more the Holy Spirit shows what he wants to learn from and apply it to our lives and the picture reflect us paint God’s holy spirit in the world reflecting god beautiful picture through us in the world so they are unsafe for see God’s beautiful picture on it and what we have and that is to know Jesus as our saviour. And I say amen to that. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  6. God has blessed me with a good amount of intelligence. My problem with that, over the years, is that it’s easy for me to think, it’s my job to figure things out. That’s not always true.

    Thank you for reminding me: God’s ways defy logic; & can’t be figured out, even if I think them through long enough! That’s where my Faith needs to get exercised.

  7. Lucretia,

    Thank you for listening to the Holy Spirit’s leading. You never know who, what or where God will lead you to. We will never understand God’s timing & ways of working. He knows the future. He has an agenda & is using us to accomplish it. Thanks for a great post.

    Blessings 🙂

    • Hi Beth!
      Yes, I agree that God’s agenda is beyond my understanding. I am so glad that we have the option to simply trust.

      I sincerely appreciate your encouragement. Thank you for reading.
