This is my very first blog post. I didn't really know what blogging was all about and I'm still a newbie, but I really enjoy and am encouraged by other blogs that I read. So, I decided to start my own blog in hopes of encouraging other woman and passing on the blessings I receive. So, for my first post, I'd like to share one of my favorite verses from the bible that has been very true to me recently ~Proverbs 3:5-6~ Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.~ AMEN! This scripture has really been weighing on me lately. My husband and I moved to PA from NY about a month ago. We prayed and prayed that the Lord would show us what He wanted us to do and we trusted Him because we know He has a plan for us. Even though we may sometimes think we know best, the Lord quickly reminds us that HE knows whats best for us. So, we packed up our things and started on a new journey. The Lord has blessed us beyond what we could have ever imagined. We prayed for a job for my husband, a place to rent that would accept dogs, a way to work it out with only having 1 car at the moment,and a church we can call home. Well, once again the Lord is faithful!! We have a wonderful 3 bedroom house that dogs are welcomed in with a big fenced in yard, a job for my hubby that is 6 MINUTES AWAY and will take care of us until I can find a job and get a car. We found a church that we just love. We have neighbors that are our age and also Christians. We are so blessed and couldn't be happier. It just shows that if you put your trust in the Lord and you pray and wait on Him to show you what HE has planned, everything will work out. I know sometimes it is difficult when you don't know what lies ahead, but the bible says to TRUST in the Lord and the more we do this, the easier it becomes. If you think about it, it's actually easier just to pray and trust the Lord rather than get all worried and worked up about things that, in the end, we really have no control over. So, as you read this, if there is anything YOU are worried about or unsure of, just take a moment to PRAY and ask the Lord to help you understand what He has in store for you and to just have FAITH. The Lord is GOOD and He will not let you down.
Pray about everything, worry about nothing.
Love through Jesus,
