Are You Living Inside Out?
Have you ever thought that our life without God is like putting on our clothes inside out? Sure they might fit, but something isn't quite right. The pockets don’t work well and have you ever tried to button your shirt or zip your pants when they are inside out? God tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 that He has a plan for our lives, a good plan and future full of hope. When we try it our way (inside out) without God it never fits quite right. Just as there is a pattern for our clothes, one that fits and wears well, there is a pattern for our lives, one that will fit us perfectly. I know sometimes when I try to do things my own way, without God, it’s like putting my clothes on inside out. It doesn’t fit or look right. I pray you are blessed with a right side out day today! Have a blessed day everyone and remember, you are greatly loved!

WE LIVE BY GOD'S PROMISES NOT HIS EXPLANATIONS!
We live by God's promises not his explanations. Yes, I know it's hard not to ask why sometimes. Even Jesus ask why when he hung on the cross. (Matt 27:46) There are things we just don't understand. We can ask why but somehow I'm not so sure we would even fully understand the answer even if we were told. It's not the whys that give us hope but the promises of God. Hold fast to his promises. They are all yes and amen in Christ Jesus! In them is our hope! Have a wonderful and blessed day everyone!

I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING!
This post was written 3 years after my husband passed away. God is the same yesterday, today and forever! It still holds true today!
I was awakened very early this morning by a bad dream. It was puzzling because I pray over my thoughts and dreams every night before bed and at first the dream was vague but quickly became very vivid. The details aren't really important but my late husband and I were in the dream and a thief had been here. As my husband looked at me with that "I'm sorry this happened face," I smiled back at him and said, "I wouldn't change a thing." I knew immediately it was a spiritual dream. During our 36 years of marriage there were many ups, downs and challenges but all those things made us who we were as a couple and as individuals. Life is just like that. There is joy and pain and even suffering. God says that if we belong to him, he takes it all and molds it in to something beautiful. I wouldn't trade one moment that I spent with my husband for anything in this world. And I know that God has and will continue to take even my grief and cause good to come from it. Only God can do that for me and for you! Wishing you a great day!
Love & Blessings!
