Some of my ponderings have been about the future regarding family, the economy, our business....
I have been pondering and storing up in my heart the relationships that God has given me with people. I am thankful for my family, thankful for friendships that are an encouragement. This includes friends that I only know online. It is such a blessing to walk along in this world side by side with you!
God has allowed us to live in these days...the days in which it seems that good is called evil and evil is called good. It is challenging to raise our children in this culture, it requires us to pray hard for protection for our children from the enemy of our souls whose only goals are to 'steal, kill and destroy.' Just about the time I think this must be the worst time in history to live, I am reminded of Solomon who wrote in Ecclesiastes "there is nothing new under the sun." Evil and sin have been around for a long time, and the goal of the enemy has been the same - steal, kill and destroy.
And yet...our God is still in control. He still protects. He still leads. He still gives wisdom. He still provides. He still empowers. He still loves. He still saves. He still is worthy of glory and praise. He still casts out fear. He still heals. He still has the victory.
A new to me blog that I have been enjoying is Like Mother, Like Daughter. Here is a good post of ponderings that I say a hearty amen to!
