God’s Lights

Grab your coffee, some chocolate, some tissues and read this powerful heartfelt story of God’s Lights.

Maggie Tiggles

“Can you see the stars from outside?”

“No.  Not with the lights on.”

“I can’t see the stars from in here, either.”  Beth pressed her face against the cold window pane.

“No, but after we turn off the lights, we can look again.”

“It’s funny that, when we turn on our own lights, we can’t see God’s lights any more.  We have to shut off if we want to see God.”

“Yeah, sort of like that.”

Beth drew her face away from the window and looked at her sister.  “Does the house look pretty when you look at it from outside?”

Clarisa met Beth’s eyes.  “Yes, it does.  Do you want me to take a picture, so you can see?”

Beth giggled.  “Yes!  I’ll wave to you through the window.”

Clarisa got up, grabbed her phone, and started out the bedroom.  “Don’t forget to put on your coat and galoshes,”…

Dear……..……….

It’s me again. Today I had a really long class. I was so tired after that, that I just walked back to my room and dropped on my bed. After food today, I felt like going out. The night was so young and beautiful. I decided to sit down for some cold lemon tea. I took the longer road this time to get to the tea stall. It’s always nice to take the longer road. You get to say hi to some people and make some small talk. Leaves a smile on your face by the time you reach your destination. I decided to go through some great posts. And I was sitting there reading, sipping my tea, I thought of how much the WordPress community meant to me. It’s such a joy to come here and be encouraged. Over the past two years, I’ve made friends like you…

What caused your struggle?

 I can identify a number of factors and events which contributed to my gradual descent into the world of pornography. It occurred over many years, beginning when I was just twelve.

I was incredibly sheltered as a child. My parents didn’t talk about sex, let alone pornography. They believed I didn’t need to know about sex until after I was married, and any questions which related to the topic were quickly shut down. Because of this, I wasn’t given adequate education about my developing body or what would occur during puberty.

I was completely naïve, so when I began to develop an awareness of my sexuality and was randomly exposed to online pornography at twelve, I had no words for what I was seeing. I was ill-equipped to identify what I…

The Messy Places

This is just too beautiful of a post NOT to share! Such a wonderful post of truth on marriage! I love how Jordan prays for a heart of discernment for her husband at the end.

Grace Waves

Today, as I was putting away a folded pile of laundry, I realized that of all the rooms in our house, our bedroom is usually the messiest. Logically, I suppose it makes sense. We want people to feel welcome in our home, so we spend most of our time cleaning the rooms they are going to see.

But how often is our marriage that way?

We spend the most time working on the pieces other people will see so we can portray a picture-perfect family to the world. But when we get to the intimate side of marriage, or the room where it’s really just the two of us, what have we left untouched, uncleaned, or unsaid?

Living with a toddler and a baby, it’s easy to put their needs ahead of each other’s needs. When there’s never-ending laundry to do, dishes to clean, toys to pick up, and meals…
