Books I am currently reading

Reading GOOD books is one really fantastic way to Feed FAITH and starve fear.

What we feed our mind plays a HUGE role ….. what we feed grows! We must feed our faith with Biblical truth. The world offers a lot of things that will feed our fear, but we have to be intentional about feeding our faith! Right now, many of us are “sheltering at home” due to the Covid-19, and have a bit more time to devote to reading. I want to share with you 2 books I have recently been reading.

Picture: me in my kitchen with my books. 🙂

The first one is a lent devotional, “Uncovering the Love of Jesus”**, by Ahseritah Cuuciu. I’m still reading this one. I know that lent season is almost over, but it is so good that I think it could be done any time of the year. I did her advent devotional the last two Christmas seasons. I give both of her devotionals a 5/5 rating. One great thing about this study is that while it can be done alone she shares ways you can do it with your children, too.

The second book is one I recently re-read. Yes, it is that good. I don’t often re-read books, but this one I just HAD to. In fact, after reading it the first time I gave my copy away and so I had to re-buy the book to read it again! “Praying the Bible”**, by Donald S. Whitney, is a short easy read. Though it is short, it is packed with so much practical truth. Praying the Bible teaches how to incorporate praying scripture into our daily prayers so that our prayers aren’t the same boring prayers about the same old things with the same old words! Whitney teaches how we can use scripture to bring our prayer times to life with fresh energy and depth.

 

If you are looking for a book to help you grow in Christ or to improve your prayer life then these are books I highly recommend.

Bible study bonus pagesGOD is BIGGER  5 Week Bible Study: Feed Faith and Starve Fear!

Life is HARD… always… but especially right now with Covd-19.  Nothing is normal right now.  NOTHING!

Last fall God lead me to write this Bible Study.  This study is based on the 5 ways God taught me to Feed Faith and Starve Fear during our 7 year leukemia journey with our oldest son, Wesley.  Now I see so clearly God’s timing.  The coronavirus caught us completely by surprise and has turned our world upside down, but it did not catch God by surprise.  HE wrote this book back in the fall…. for NOW!  For such a time as this.

If you would like a practical, easy to follow, Bible Study that will help you keep your eyes on Jesus during this unprecedented time, then please request a copy below.

I’m praying that as you do this study God moves in your heart in a fresh and powerful way!

Stepping WAY out of my comfort zone

Well….. Here I go.  This is NOT in my comfort zone…. but I feel that God is calling me to share an important word.  It just had to be done in video instead of the written word.

There is so much anxiety in our nation right now.  Anxiety in personal lives, about the election and in our country as a whole.  It is tearing me up!  Please find encouragement in this.


 

Life can hurt….. Goliaths are big!

I sit in the hospitgod-vs-goliathal room, seeing my 19 year old son, Wesley, laying in a bed that has become way too familiar over the past 4 years.  I listen to the sounds of oxygen, IV pumps and now a bubbling chest tube along with the soothing sounds of the praise music he has playing from his blue tooth speaker.  Life can hurt.  My mama heart just aches for the pain he is enduring now…. and has during the many days since we first heard the dreaded word, leukemia.

While leukemia is no longer the Goliath we face, leukemia treatment has scarred his body.  The war wounds are real and a secondary battle has begun.

There is nothing I can humanly do as his mama to take any of this away…. I’m so glad that we know Jesus and that Wes has his own deep relationship with our Savior.  We have lived by the motto of GOD is BIGGER and have seen, felt and experienced the power of God in mighty ways.  There is nothing like being in the depths of our lack that allows us to see the provision of God’s hand.

What we SEE with human eyes is a BIG Goliath. We see PAIN from  surgery to repair the lung, we hear a bubbling chest tube and our hearts hurt hearing his frustration and non typical irritation. We know that biopsy results are out for second opinions and that the whole reason we did this biopsy in the first place must be addressed. This Goliath seems HUGE….. But on days like this we have to CHOOSE to… be DELIBERATE and constantly renew our minds to the THRUTH. The TRUTH is… No matter what Goliath we *or you* face in life…. GOD is BIGGER! HIS strength and power will ALWAYS conquer Goliath. In our HUMAN strength…. Goliath can over power…. But Goliath can never over power GOD!!!
So…. To the Goliath we face right now let you hear me loud and clear: “I come against you in the name of the Lord our God, and YOU are not going to win this battle!”
What Goliath are you facing today???  Our God is mighty and able to conquer any Goliath.  It takes intentional faith, keeping our eyes on Jesus and HIS power.  This life has a lot of hard…. but GOD is BIGGER!!! I would appreciate prayers for our son, Wesley, and I will pray for you.  Please leave a comment below and share how I can pray for you.
