Running The Race Before Us
Welcome! I hope you can find something here that will encourage you as we run the race of life together.
As a new year approaches, I want to share a post I wrote for Beulah Girl. It's my attempt to answer the question, does your life have a specific purpose? And, deep down inside, you know the answer. Of course your life has purpose! Each day in this new year, you can awake with the knowledge that God has "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope a future" (Jer. 29:11). Please read my most recent post and be encouraged!
"Autism Awareness to me means that people come to understand the autism spectrum. Not every person with autism is the same. They're all very, very different. People just need to be more educated about the disorder and also educate their children which is a big concern of mine for Lucas. If children have proper education about autism then they are less likely to poke fun at kids who are on the spectrum because they will understand the quirks of someone with autism." - Lisa Petre
If you're a parent, you know what worry is. You worry about your kids' safety. You worry about their health. You worry about your kids' education. You worry about their future. You worry. Now, if you are a Christian parent, there's one more thing you worry about in addition to all the aforementioned aspects of your kids' well-being. You worry about your kids' salvation. And if they become Christians, you then switch to worrying about their relationship with God...
Why are people always so surprised when professing Christians - specifically those that live their lives in view of the public eye - turn out to be sinners? Why all the shock and/or disgust when they turn out to be as imperfect and flawed as the next person? - See more at: forget-me-notohlord.blogspot.com
Today, I have the honor of sharing a post my friend Carol wrote about her miscarriage. Her words really speak to the pain that is miscarriage. But even more than that, her words reveal how miscarriage can transform you - in a positive way. If you have recently suffered a loss and are making your way through those depths of despair, be encouraged by this post! As Carol shows us, God can bring "beauty for ashes" and "a joyous blessing instead of mourning" (Isaiah 61:3 - NLT).
