God's power is at work and we can be thankful in any circumstances. This week's featured post explains more. It's called, The Power of Thanksgiving, by Karen Del Tatto, who writes at Growing Together in Grace and Knowledge. I was so encouraged and challenged by Karen's words. I hope you'll take a moment to visit, say hello, and be blessed as I was.
Thank you for sharing with us last week, Karen.
That longing for home is a part of all of us, I think. Rosa's vivid descriptions took me right into a place I think many of us will recognize in this week's featured post. It's called, When You Don't Feel at Home Anywhere, by Rosa A Hopkins, who writes at Gutsy Christianity. Our true home is in heaven. Until we're with Jesus, face to face, I think that we'll always have some longing. We were made for something more. I loved reading Rosa's words and I hope you'll take a moment to say hello, read, and be blessed as I was.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, The Time to Pray is Now, by Heather Bixler. She explains the 3 reasons we often fail to pray (and why that needs to change). God may not always change our circumstances in exactly the way we ask but when we take our requests to him in prayer, he does change our hearts.
I hope you'll take a moment to visit Heather, read her words, and be encouraged as I was.
Thank you for sharing with us last week, Heather.
And now, it's time to link-up!
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is by Deb Wolf, who writes at Counting My Blessings. It's called, Taking My Brokenness to the One Who Can Restore Me. To be broken hearted over that which breaks God's heart...that is my prayer. And then, there's restoration. I'm so thankful for the restoration that God brings to the brokenhearted. Deb shares some beautiful verses in her post, that bring so much hope. I hope you'll take a moment to read, say hello, and be encouraged as I was!
My apologies for not having a featured post today. I am on vacation and will be back next week!
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, What to Think About Instead of That Thing Your Trying Not To Think About, by Elizabeth or Guilty Chocoholic Mama. Do you ever have a hard time keeping your mind away from certain thoughts? I do! I love Elizabeth's practical idea! P.R.O.M.P.T is an acronym for what to do when this happens- something I'm going to try next time my mind starts to go where I don't want it to. I hope you'll go say hello and be inspired as I was.
This week's featured post for Grace and Truth is by Maree Dee and it's called, Please God, Not One More Thing. It's an important reminder about self-care. Sometimes the best thing, the only thing, we can do is put on our own oxygen mask so we can take care of others. God is in control and his mercies are new every morning. Maree Dee shares a story that illustrates this truth beautifully. I hope you'll take a moment to go read it and be encouraged.
Betsy DeCruz, who writes at Faith Spilling Over, is the author of this week's featured post for Grace and Truth. It's called, When Life Looks Uncertain, Jesus is the Way. This post was such a wonderful encouragement to me. What's most important is knowing who our companion and guide is, in situations where life is uncertain. I'm so thankful we have Jesus. I hope you'll take a moment to go read, say hello, and be blessed as I was!
needed to read Theresa's sweet encouragement today. Maybe you do, too. It's this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth Link-Up and it's called, What Voices Are You Listening To?As I was reading her words, I was thinking about how I had been listening to the wrong voice throughout the day. It reminded me that I missed my Bible reading time this morning. I think that was a big part of why today has been so...off. What voices are you listening to? I'll encourage you to go and read Theresa's post and be blessed by her words as I was.
Thank you for sharing your post with us last week at Grace and Truth, Theresa.
And now it's time to link-up!
