Pray Anyway

This brought me to tears. People just do not understand the power of prayer until they truly witness it first hand.

I am just blown away by this post and the openness in which Cynthia shares her story with us. What a powerful testimony of what God can do if we simply get out of His way.

God bless you sis!

Tears in a Bottle

You don’t have to believe in God to pray. That’s what our Sexual Recovery Therapist told my husband as he outlined the sex addiction recovery program my husband was about to begin. Having a day bookended by prayer wouldn’t have fazed me too much. As a Christian, I didn’t spend as much time talking to God as I could or should have. Twice a day would have been a stretch. But something I would have readily agreed to as a part of my recovery program.

And yet it wasn’t me seeking healing from a pornography addiction, compulsive masturbation and intimacy anorexia. It was my husband. A man who did not believe in the existence of God.

I was highly doubtful that my non-believing husband would agree to pray. My eyes had been glued to our counsellor’s face, grasping every bit of hope his words were offering us. The hope began…

Jesus Christ: From A Child’s Mind To John’s Vision

Wow, something really hit me in church the other day when my pastor was preaching. It was was one the few times I have gone to the “adult” evening service. I normally go in with the children and help out. But this night we had enough help, so I went to the adult service. I… Continue reading Jesus Christ: From A Child’s Mind To John’s Vision

Life; The Fight!

I am sharing this because there are way too many nuggets in here to not share.

What a wonderful story Warren gives us. One of how life can knock us down and bring us to our knees.

A testimony, if you will, of how life sucker punched him, kicked him and knocked him until finally he came face to face with the cross. Life didn’t change after that encounter…Warren did.

As I said there are so many nuggets in here but this one spoke the most to me and it just happens to be true…To know that life is best fought, with a surrendered heart!

God bless you brother!

iWrite... my love story!

Life, can sometimes come at you hard; that you think you’re in a fight, a fight for your life. I learned at an early age, how to bob and weave pretty good. Float like a butterfly, no; I wasn’t the greatest, but I knew how to hold my own… heart. Life just wouldn’t allow me to catch my breath, so I just held it all in; breathing seemed to be optional. But life still decided to hit me with a sucker punch; it knocked me to One knee. I was absolutely stunned; life should have known, I wasn’t about to stay down. So I gathered up my pride, stuck it back in my heart and said; life, is that all you have… to offer?

So I got off my knee, got back in the fight; only to continue with the same bobbing and weaving routine. I wasn’t a sucker. Yeah…

It’s Nothing I Did

I, personally, am so thankful that there is nothing that I can do to be saved! Because trust me I would not be a child of God if it was dependent on my actions and words. Thank you Father for your grace! For your unending mercy! I love you! I do not take this gift… Continue reading It’s Nothing I Did
