Feeling the stress ....

We normally blog when everything is ok.... good. Today I am feeling the stress/pressure of several things.... so I am coming asking for prayer.

I read over at another blog about how everything always looks perfect on our blogs. The pictures are small captions..... we center them to look the best.

We are all sinners saved by grace.

We all make mistakes, get angry, fustrated.... fuss at the kids too much, do not stay in the word like we should.... spend too much, eat too much..... and the list goes on and on..... I have been guilty of everyone of those listed ....

This week has been a tough one.....

Several snippets of what God has given me....

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. Isaiah 43:2

Christ does not exist in order to make much of us. We exist in order to make much of Him. Christ is not glorious so that we get wealthy or healthy. Christ is glorious so that rich or poor, sick or sound, we might be satisfied in Him. ~ John Piper

It is the branch that bears the fruit, that feels the knife, to prune it for a larger growth, a fuller life.... ~ Streams in the Desert

Because we are all friends, sisters in Christ.... I share with you.


  1. Praying for you Teena.

  2. I've tried to be mainly positive on my blog but every now and then I show my bad days too, because let's face it we all have them. I pray things will get better for you. That verse is one of my favs.

    Love your new layout by the way :)

  3. Oh yes those heavy, hard times come don't they? Praise the Lord we have HIM to carry us and our burdens!!

    I've been in a funk since getting the news about my husband and son. I'm so thankful to be going through this pre-deployment time with JESUS as last time I was without Him ~ God is good!!!


  4. Nice post..such true words. We started a new Bible study last night called the Truth Project. Boy was there a lot in one hour. There are 12 head will be full and overflowing.

  5. Hope things are going better for you today my friend. I was thinking about you earlier today, thinking that it would be great if you could come this way to visit our family some day. I realize this would take almost a miracle, but I know God is in the miracle business.

    Love you and pray for you often,

  6. This is very good and so true. I know what you mean about blogging about all the good times and staying silent through the bad. I wonder what it is that makes us that way.

    I need to show more of how God works in my daily life. A witness to all that I know He lives and so very, very good to us.
