Journal on My Faith Walk

Image
Heres a personal glimpse into my faith walk: 
At the beginning of this month Joseph & me decided to start the Dave Ramsey Program again to stabilize our finances, 2 weeks later we found out that I'm pregnant (unplanned blessing n surprise), the day after David gets a fever sunday night and it lasts off and on until yesterday today was his first 24 hours with no fever. Yesterday Joseph lost his job of over 9 years- but that morning God woke me up with Romans 3:23 "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard." That tells me we all sin and we pay the consequences for those sin but if you read on "24 Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins." That tells me yes there are temporary punishments and consequences but to those who remain faithful theres eternal Joy so no hopeless situation and no bad news can take that away from me! 
God has a way…

Disability doesnt mean Dead!

I've come to the realization that I have some mental disabilities which keep me from doing things that most people can do like going and getting a job. My husband encouraged me to apply for disability that made me angry and I later wondered on it and realized I had a judgment that disabled meant quitting like you're dead. Not true!



Between my husband great love for me exactly as I am and my Lord's love and encouragement for me I realized it's time to embrace that I'm mentally disabled and that doesn't mean I am any less wonderful and beautifully made in God's image it means that this is who I am and who I can relate to and prayerfully encourage with God's love, word and truth.



It's been freeing to accept this about myself so now I can look at the hope and possibilities not the road blocks and hopelessness of what I can't do that you or someone else maybe able to do with no problem. I have gifts and skills too they are just as valuable and usefu…
