God Cares

Posted by Tami Wallace on April 03, 2017 @ 1:55 PM

There are some situations for which there are no words.  The hurt cuts deep.  Understanding is elusive.  You can't figure anything out and just need to talk to God.  But praying seems difficult when the situation seems hard to put in to words. But you pray anyway ... prayer that comes from a deep place in your heart that only the Spirit of God understands.

For me, those prayers are accompanied by tears, lots of tears.  And because crying in front of people (even family) can be awkward, I go for walks.  I recently had one of those "prayer walks" and toward the end of my walk I noticed the air smelled amazingly sweet ... like the most expensive perfume had been sprayed all in the air.  It seemed strange because I was walking by an empty lot.  Not a perfectly manicured yard, but an empty, neglected, overgrown lot.

I'm not even sure what caused the wonderful smell; perhaps honeysuckle, jasmine or an orange tree in bloom.  I did not see the source.  All I know is the very air where I walked smelled amazingly sweet.  And I realized that the God who cared enough to make a flower bloom that would perfume the air so sweetly, cares for me!  He cares for the reason for my tears.  He cares for my hurting heart.  God simply cares! 

And if He cares enough to perfume the air, I think He can handle my need.

I Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you."

 

 

 

BATTLEGROUND SEASON by Kristen Wallace

Posted by Tami Wallace on March 03, 2017 @ 8:31 PM

Anyone in what I like to, not so lovingly, refer to as a battleground season?  A season where it seems like the enemy is doing everything he possibly can to try to derail you?  Well hey ... you're in good company! 

Remember Joseph, the man who was betrayed and sold into slavery by his own brothers after they had a plot to kill him?  In Genesis 50:20 he says, "What you meant to harm me the Lord will use for good, for the saving of many lives."

Are you finding yourself in the middle of a battlefield?  Remember: God is FAITHFUL and you are already VICTORIOUS in Him!  What the enemy meant to harm you, the Lord will use for good ... for the saving of many lives!

 

 

TIMING by Kristen Wallace

(My daughter wrote this ... I saw it on social media ... Had to share it.  So good!)


Anyone else out there guilty of being a tiny bit of a control freak? If we're being vulnerable for a minute, then I have both of my hands raised. If you have your hand raised too, do you ever find yourself struggling to trust God because His plans for you aren't lining up with your timeline? It reminds me of the story of Sarah and Abraham. God told Abraham and Sarah they would have a child, but when God's timing didn't match Sarah's, she chose to take back control (I feel ya girl). She let Abraham have her handmaid so that Abraham would have a child. She tried to "help God" fulfill His promise to her instead of trusting Him and His timing. It may be difficult at times, but I encourage you to trust God even when it doesn't match your plans or your timeline. If God made a promise to you or put a desire in your heart, trust in Him and know that He will fulfill every single one in the perfect time and season.
