Out With The Old

I cannot believe we are coming to the close of another year. I blinked and 2012 has become almost a distant memory!! When I was out for my run yesterday I was flashing back through some memories of this past year.  I think one of the most amazing memories I had was spending the day at The Big Ticket festival in June with my sister. Worshipping under the stars with Chris Tomlin singing How Great Is Our God was an indescribable moment! 

It has been a year with blessings, sadness, joys, heartache. It's been a year that we have grown in our faith as individuals but also as a family. I have witnessed what it means to have a child-like faith through each of our boys. Sometimes they simply take my breath away and make my heart overflow with love for how they approach life. Their heart felt, humble prayers may seem so simple, but yet they have taught me so much.

My hope and prayer for you is that you find in Christ a hope and purpose for each day. He can take your tests and make them into testimonies. He can take your sorrows and give you comfort, peace and even joy. He can take your messy days and make them into moments to glorify Him and give Him praise. If I have learned anything about the character traits of God over the past year it is that He is indeed a God of faithfulness and grace.

The top three viewed posts of my blog this past year were:


The Highest Of Highs To The Lowest Of Lows

Looking forward to what God is going to write in the pages of our lives in the coming is indeed a blessed journey!!!
Happy New Year To You!!!

People Undeserving

Out of nowhere God put this song in my heart tonight. HE is the hope this world needs, the hope WE need. As we celebrate Christmas, I'm just wondering, does this man reside within your heart?? My prayer is that if He does not, that you may fully come to know HIS incredible love!!!! He came for you! We do not deserve this gift, yet He gave it anyway because He loves us so much and needed to give us a way back to Him. Sin does not have the final say~Christ does!

I know you gave the world your only son for us, to know your name, to live within the Saviour's love. He took my place knowing he'd be crucified. You love, you love a people undeserving.

  I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord. 
From the maker of heaven and earth....
