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.
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!
The featured post this week at the Grace and Truth link-up is called, Learning to See Horrible Circumstances in a New Perspective, by Sheila Qualls at Candidly Christian. Sheila's words are such an encouragement. I think all us have questioned God's goodness at some point or another. I'm so thankful for his patience and gentle loving care in times like these. God is so good and sometimes all it takes is a little shift in perspective to see that more clearly.
Traveling Life: Finding Our Way, by Rachel Britton, is this week's featured post for Grace and Truth link-up. Have you ever stood in the midst of a teeming crowd of people and felt small and insignificant? That's not the way God sees you. Rachel's post is a sweet reminder of God’s love for us. It’s truly amazing how God sees each and every one of us, no matter how many of us there are! I hope you'll pop over, say hello, and be encouraged as I was!
The featured post for this Grace and Truth this week is by Kela Nellums and it's called, Practicing the Rest of Peace. I love what she wrote about peace! That supernatural peace that we get from God is not meant to be kept to ourselves. He wants us to share it with others! Kela shares some practical tips on entering into the rest of peace. I hope you'll go visit her and be both encouraged and challenged as I was.
Pornography use is a real problem that hurts a lot of people and I’m thankful for people like Lisa who are willing to address it so thoughtfully. Her post, titled, Six Steps Parents Can Take to Protect Their Teens from Pornography, is this week's featured post here at Grace and Truth. It's full of practical steps and useful advice. I hope you'll check it out!
Thank you for sharing your post with us last week at Grace and Truth, Lisa.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, One Simple Way I'm Practicing Gratitude Everyday, by Rosanna of Extraordinary Everyday Mom. I love her idea! You'll definitely want to check it out. It's a great way to practice gratitude AND show love to the people in our lives.
Summer is here! I'm so excited to tell you about what's coming here, on the blog, over the next couple of months. For the months of June and July, I'll be hosting some of my favorite writers, right here, and sharing some of their best posts! You'll find that they are doing something similar. Some of my best posts will be on their blogs.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is by Deborah Haddix and it's called, Prayer Encouragement for the Busy Mom. In this post, Deborah acknowledges the struggle many of us face as busy moms, to regularly include prayer time in our lives. She offers a great little resource that addresses this issue, a free e-book called Praying with Purpose for Our Children, that I thought was excellent! I hope you'll go check out her post, say hello, and be encouraged as I was!
