Don't Forget What Jesus said about Suffering!

I heard this song today and thought I'd share it with you all as it has some great words!  (N.B. That is not to say I necessarily agree with all the theology expressed in every song I share).
"No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13 ~
He Said

 You may be knocked down now
But don't forget what He said, He said
I won't give you more, more then you can take
And I might let you bend, but I won't let you break
And no-o-o-o-o, I'll never ever let you go-o-o-o-o
 Don't you forget what He said.

God bless!

God is With Us

My apologies for not writing much lately. I'm hoping to get back into it now that the year is already speeding by and I also hope to be posting soon on the other blog, Violets and Daisies. Here are some great quotes (all courteousy of Pinterest) that I feel are really good reminders when we are facing trials:

Here is a song I also found really good. Praying that it would be a source of encouragement for you on the hard days!

He Is With Us

Remember when your hope is lost and faith is shaken
Remember when you wonder if you're gonna make it
There's a hand stretched out through your deepest doubt

We can't pretend to see the ending or what's coming up ahead
Don't know the story of tomorrow
But we can stay close to the One who knows

We can trust our God
He knows what He's doing
Though it might hurt now
we won't be ruined
It might seem there's an ocean in between
But He's holding onto you and me
and He's never gonna leave, no
He is with us, He is with us, always, always
He is with us, He is with us, always

We believe there is purpose, there is meaning in everything
We surrender to His leading
He wants nothing more than to have us close


Our faith is sealed
Our hope is real
Come what may
We're not afraid


God bless!
