God is working…

This brought me so much comfort and hope. There are things in all of our family histories that aren’t perfect or pristine. However, when we look at the genealogy of Jesus, neither was His earthly family history perfect or pristine (See Matthew 1:1-16). But God is so good that He still used those imperfect people in Jesus’s genealogy and that messy and dysfunctional family history to bring forth the perfect, holy, righteous, and blameless Messiah into the world!

Tests and Trials

The Lord has repeatedly brought this Scripture to my attention. This year has been wrought with various tests and trials. At times it has been difficult to keep going, BUT GOD. The Lord has been my refuge, strength, comfort, hope, and provider during my time of suffering. He has and continues to be faithful, and I’m so thankful and grateful that He has promised to never leave or forsake me, because I know this will not be the last test or trial I endure.
