HOPE – I can’t go on without hope!

Our paths are similar in our porn addiction, though I went much deeper and darker. BUT, we are both proof of God’s grace and forgiveness AND we both can testify that freedom is possible… through Christ!

Jesus Is The Best

Pornography was my Achilles heel.  I had tried so many times to change and failed every time.  When I told myself that this time was going to be different, another part of me replied in an instant, “Don’t kid yourself. You will be right back at it again before you know it.”  Deep down in my soul, I felt I was doomed to repeat yesterday’s mistakes today, and then do the same thing again tomorrow.  No matter how sorry I was for what I had done wrong, or how convinced I was that I needed to do what was right, nothing ever seemed to change.

Maybe you have experienced the same sense of despair.  People caught up in pornography have often gotten to the point where the whole idea of hope seems remote, far removed; unbelievable and unattainable.  Things are really bad and there is often not much light at…

Appearances of God to Man – Breakthroughs

This stuck out to me like a big huge billboard…
I think it’s important for us to note that we cannot blame our parents for our sin and for our refusal to obey God.
We stand or fall before God for our own actions.

Because for many years I did, in fact, blame my dad for some of my issues. Not anymore though. I alone owned my sins and gave them all to Jesus.

If Ruth’s post touched you please share it with others on all your social media outlets as I have.

God bless!

I love to read passages of the Bible where God appears to man.  If you haven’t read through the Bible, you may be surprised how many times this happened.

Joshua 5 and 6 contains one of these passages. In Joshua 5:13-15 we see that a man is standing before Joshua with his sword drawn. At first, Joshua doesn’t seem to know who the man is.

Joshua goes up to him and says,

“Are you for us or for our adversaries?”

Instead of answering one way or the other, the man says,

“No. But I am the commander of the army of the Lord. Now I have come.”

Interestingly, He says, “I am,” which is the eternal name of God. (Exodus 3:14)  He states that He is God.  And, the following verse verifies this, as Joshua understands who He is and falls on his face to the Earth and worships. If…

Created by God

I for one stand with Vickie on the abortion issue! I can’t stand it. And like Vickie, I understand rape, life of the mother and /or child, and incest are very grave things to endure, And yet God has a plan for that child regardless of how it was conceived.

There are plenty of women out there who want children of their own but can’t for various reasons including complications from an abortion earlier in her life

Choose life!

Vickie's Book Nook and Meditation Corner

So, for those who have been following my blog, you know that I went to see my surgeon on Monday to talk about my upcoming surgery. I was very disappointed to find out that since my tests had been postponed (due to the doctors’ lack of communication with each other), my surgical appointment was postponed until February 18th. I was distraught because I had already missed Christmas with my youngest grandchildren and now I would miss a birthday, too. Anyway, after I calmed down and turned my eyes back on the Lord who created me, I was thankful to have an appointment at all and a surgery that promises to correct my digestive issues. I will have robotic assisted laparoscopic paraesophageal surgery with partial fundiplication. That’s a whole lot of words that simply mean a robot will assist in the surgery so the incisions are smaller and the fundiplication means…
