He Knows My Name

This song speaks right to my heart.  Give it a listen 🙂

Also, if you’re looking for a good read, I’m on the third book in the “Left Behind” series by Tim Lahaye, and I’m really enjoying them.  They’re interesting and based off of Biblical prophesy on the end times.  So I’m being entertained and learning simultaneously.

Also, I read a verse that encouraged me greatly.  Jesus was said these words to Mary in Luke 7:50:

“Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

Notice that He said this after her action of faith.  Faith is something to live out in the world, not something to be kept in private.  Praying that everybody lets His light shine through them wherever they may be today!  Praying that the Lord encourages us and empowers us to be bold!

And happy voting to you 🙂

    Hi Stephanie…I found your blog a while back and your posts are always encouraging as well as your testimony. I am so happy you have found a godly man. I too hope to find a Christian to marry and share my life with. Several years ago I met a man in church who seemed like a great Christian guy. He was very involved in church and he treated me like a princess for the first several months of our relationship. However, over time, he slowly began to change. He became abusive (verbal and emotional), he quit church, and he hurt me deeper than any one ever has. I’m still trying to heal from all the pain he caused me. He has since moved on to someone else and I see him a few times a year. After all these years, I still feel that my heart is being ripped out. He was everything I wanted in a man. But now that’s gone and he is not that person anymore. I still grieve for that “perfect” man. I still cry over the way I felt with him and how spiritual he was when we met. I haven’t found anyone that shared that love for God like he did in the beginning. It makes me so sad that the relationship became so unhealthy and so chaotic. I’ve read from your blog that you have a painful past and that God has healed you from it. I have prayed and prayed for God to heal me. But I still feel as heartbroken as I did years ago. I want God to hear my prayer and help me through this. How did you find healing with God?

    Thanks so much for your blog. It gives me hope when I feel hopeless. Jennifer

      It was a long, painstaking process, Jennifer. Sometimes, the pain comes back, because Satan knows it to be a foothold, and I have to go through the process again. Rely on God’s promise – that He knows the desires of your heart and that He will fulfill them in His perfect timing. Lean on that promise, and lean on Him in the meantime. I know it is so hard to wait patiently, especially when you’re experiencing such pain. God will give you strength to get through and become stronger with time, keep seeking Him and His truth. Repeat promises out loud if you have to. Jesus is the king of redemption, He can transform anything ugly into something beautiful. Keep pushing into that promise. I’m so sorry that you’ve been through so much pain. I’ll be praying healing for you and I encourage anybody who reads your comment to do the same!! God bless you in your walk.
