Encouragement

Welcome May 2020

May 1, 2020

But God.

The uncertainty continues, but God.

The Bible has many “but God” verses, and each tell us that our circumstances DO NOT get the last word. The enemy DOES NOT get the last word. Death and disease DO NOT get the last word. Because there is always, always, always a but God.

Let’s pray… Dear Holy Father, COVID-19 has impacted our world dramatically in the last few weeks, accenting our helplessness and our need for you. Our country must open for business, and yet we fear what might happen when it does. So, we cry to the one who hung the sun and moon in the heavens and flung the stars into space. We know you hold the world together with your power and your eye beholds every event, even the thoughts of our hearts. We pray for your grace and healing on our country. Please draw the wayward to yourself through this crisis. For those of us who know you, guide us like a shepherd and carry the fearful in your arms. Teach us to trust you more. We praise you for what you are going to do. In Jesus name, Amen.

In this month of uncertainty, The One, is certain. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things.

Welcome April 2020

April 1, 2020

In this new month of uncertainty, The One, is certain. As we do each month, let’s start with prayer, and choose to believe that He is in control of all things… Dear Abba Father, how desperately we need you in this time of upheaval. I pray for those suffering with COVID-19 and for the doctors and nurses who are overwhelmed with patients. Grant first responders grace and stamina as they care for our people and please restore the financial structure of our nation. Dear Father, use this crisis to realign our hearts with yours. I praise you I can be confident in my heavenly home even in chaos. I am grateful I serve a risen Savior, not a god made of stone or a figment of my imagination. The great I AM is my Father. Jesus is risen. He is risen, indeed. In Jesus name, Amen.

Our mission: Be intentional to “bloom” for Jesus. May the below Others Centered Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father.

How to Find the Key to Your Child’s Heart

March 13, 2020

Before I became a parent, I determined I wouldn’t make the mistakes I’d seen others make. I had a long list of criteria that would dazzle any child. However, soon after I had my first child, I discovered parenting challenged me. I had several more, and that feeling grew. Kids aren’t alike so what worked for one didn’t work with the rest. I discovered prayer and good counsel helped.

My guest this week was Counselor Gwyn McCaslin and she works at Hope Creek Counseling in Sugar Creek, Ohio. I’ve known her for years and watched as she finished her counseling degree. Her advice awes me every time.
