  1. Faith, assurance, and God’s good graces are what have sustained me for the last twelve years of silence from my two sons without a reason given.
    I share this because I want to give God the glory for manifesting His promise of strengthening us beyond what we can imagine.Hold on to hope. Amen!

    • Oh Kathleen, I am so sorry. My heart hurts for you . I know that God never leaves us and He has heard every one of your prayers and is working on your behalf as well as your sons. Thanking God for His grace for you and each one of us.

    • Kathleen,

      Father God please soften the hearts of Kathleen’s two sons. You alone know why they haven’t called in 12 years. Change their minds to want to speak with Kathleen again. Give Kathleen the strength & peace she needs to endure this trial. AMEN

      Blessings 🙂

  2. Amen \0/
    “…but we can trust God’s heart, His timing, and His sustaining love and grace no matter what we face”
    I’m learning more often to trust God’s timing…in everything and for everyone friend and foe.
    I’m so grateful God waited for me

  3. Amen. I am struggling right now with contentment and being thankful. I hate feeling this way. Please pray for me. Thank you ❤️

  4. I like reading this post as I’m going through a time of life I didn’t expect. My daughter has cancer ♋️ and it’s a bit frustrating while helping her. I’m thankful that God helps us in life. We have people who have helped us especially with appointments.
    Gifts as well.

  5. In Courage,

    Oh such wisdom to mine from these scriptures. I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. We mustn’t let society or social media dissuade us from realizing ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.

    And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your NEEDS from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Do not confuse wants with needs. We all want various items-or so we think. God gives us our daily bread. Each & every day He gives us what we need-food, clothing, shelter, water & most importantly Salvation through Jesus.

    No matter what circumstance you find yourself in just pray to God & see how He answers. If Paul in his travels, ministry, imprisonments that he is content & has all he needs then we should also!

    Blessings 🙂
