67So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” 68Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life -John 6:67-68
I have read this passage from the bible a few times but it did not break my heart as it did the first time i read it Autumn 2012. I remember reading these words and breaking down. Since then, Peter’s words would echo my heart and mind whenever struggle and trials come my way and I feel the Lord asking me if I were to turn my back on Him.
This is the truth. There’s no where I could go to escape the power of Your Love. Even if the devil robs me of my joy, You’re still the Lord. You’re still God. my struggles do not change You. my situations do not change You. I just have to remind myself everyday that Your love is more powerful than anything. It’s powerful enough for You to sacrifice Your only Son so I could have life that is truly life.
No matter what the enemy tells me, no matter how i feel, that doesn’t change You. So if to be asked, Lord, with all honesty, I have nowhere to go than stay in your loving embrace. Please keep us in the palm of Your hand. Hold us close and don’t ever let go.
God is working in your life and mine even if we don’t feel it nor refuse to believe it.
“For the Lord works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
No matter what life throws at us, please remind me that Your love is more powerful. Your love will always be greater. No matter what.
We ALL make sacrifices. Make sure you make the right ones.
Thank You Lord there are no regrets with mine. ❤️
I accomplished something today! I made my very first SSC cover! Yahoo! The sew-job (what is it even called?!) has a LOT of area for improvement but i am glad that i was able to make and finished this for approximately an hour (it took over 30minutes trying to pin the sides because my toddler wants to touch the pins). Yehey for novice me!
Luna isn’t naked anymore! Woohoo! Forgive the shallow post. It’s just the first time i did something for myself in a long, long time. 🙂 insert-hashtag-small-triumphs. Hurray!!!!!
tonight was tiring. My little guy freaked out over something. He was really, really scared which ended up with me and my husband turning against each other. Why does the devil try to sabotage everything?!
On a good note, toddler has long since calmed down and now nursing while sleeping on my chest. I love these moments. I know each day brings me closer to the day he’ll wean but i am enjoying it while it lasts. Soooo, a throwback to when this 22month old turned 4 months. I miss his gummy smile.
Tomorrow’s another day. Another chance to start over. Thank You Lord for loving me enough to get me through another day.
Caught my two darlings having a moment tonight.
I love them to the farthest stars and back. ⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️❤️❤️💙💙💙❤️❤️❤️
Thank You Lord for entrusting these two to my care. I love You!
