It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

Unexpected Places

Sometimes God will take us to unexpected places. But we can rest assured, based on his promises, that in every situation that presents itself, he will provide beyond what we can imagine and so much more than we can fathom!

When we completely trust in him, our faith will begin to go through the roof and we will find ourselves trusting in ways we never knew were possible, walking in ways we didn’t know existed!

It is IN those unexpected places that we learn more about his character and his love for us!

When you find yourself in “unexpected territory”, step forward in faith and trust him . . . COMPLETELY!

Working on Virtue

In the world today it is difficult to find one with virtue, character, work ethic and integrity. We purposed for the Lord that we would raise our children for HIM.  However, through the years, we have failed more than we have succeeded.

But through God’s daily grace upon our lives, we get back up and keep going.  My purpose for this post is that it might encourage and spur you on to look at life and raising your children with a new perspective.  In all reality, we are raising adults, not children.  Therefore we must teach them to be amazing adults for the Lord instead of allowing them to “do whatever their flesh desires to do”.  Where do we start?  God’s Holy Word.

The Lord impressed upon my heart years ago to teach my daughter to work with her hands.  She has had an egg business, generating customers, working on social skills, counting back change, etc.  She started her own earring business practicing the same skills and now has began making some of the cutest dresses and bows, hoping to reach many who are interested.

Our ultimate goal is that our children will become what the Lord desires for them and they will honor God in all that they do.  (I Corinthians 10:31)

Her dress line can be found on http://www.Etsy.com and search for “Cowgirl Sass” to see some of her dresses.  I have pictured a few so that you can see some of her work.  Pray for us as we continue to raise up adults that will make a difference in today’s world.

Proverbs 31: 8 speaks about being comfortable when old because she was not useless or idle when young.

I Timothy 4:12 speaks about letting no one despise their youth, but be an example to others in all that you do.

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies”.  Proverbs 31:10

“She seeketh wool, flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.”  Proverbs 31:13

“She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.  She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.” Proverbs 31:18-19
