What is put in front of us…an update

I praise the LORD for always putting in front of us what He wants us to see.

I will update all of you, my wordpress family, on the happenings with my house very soon.

There always seems to be things that happen to us that I ask the LORD why?

Well, He is revealing to me the why at this point. I ask that you all pray for me to listen to Him, and not jump to my fleshly desires to “fix” all these things that only He can fix.

Trials come, and although I might not like them, and might not know why, the Good LORD reveals all if we have eyes to see, and ears to hear.

Praise God for His wisdom that is far past what we can understand. Praise God for the strength to get through what we, at first, think is the end of the world, and see that the end of this world will come when He decides. Not when we think it is so.

I ask God to bless everyone who is reading this. And I thank every single one of you for your prayers because they are worth more than everything this world has to offer.

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

  1. Missed you Margret. You are often in my thoughts even when my blogging habit has become really staggered. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. The Lord will continue to strengthen and keep you. This month of September you will have reasons to dance and rejoice. Hugs & kisses 😘😘

  2. Praying for you, Margaret! Thank you for updating! I often think of you when we are praying. And we are not forgetting to pray for the one who opened up a home to you at a lower cost. Me and God love you!

  3. Your hope and positivity, no matter the challenges you face, is always so heartening. Times can get very tough, but hope keeps us going, and trust and faith that things will work out okay, that there’s a bigger reason behind what’s happening. You’re in my thoughts often, Margaret, and I really do hope you are keeping as well as possible. Sending lots of love Β β™₯

    1. I have been exhausted Caz, so much so yesterday I couldn’t even put a cohesive sentence together. I typed a few things and thank God for spellcheck. It is an uphill travel some days isn’t it. I know you understand this more than most. I read your post and said some extra prayers for you. Your love and encouragement means so much to me. Oh, and as far as keeping up with blogs, don’t let that get to you. Everyone here, well I shouldn’t speak for every one but I will, everyone here loves you and completely understands. You are one of the most supportive, encouraging, motivating bloggers I know. :)

      1. Aw thank you, that means a lot, Margaret. It doesn’t take much sometimes to tip me over a bit, and the thing with the surgery did just that. I do feel awful when I can’t keep up with how everyone is on their blogs, so I’m keeping at it, but I know something needs to change. As for you, you’ve been through the wringer with it all. It definitely sounds like you need a break yourself; are you able to get some rest over the weekend..? I do hope so. You’re important. I do hope things can ease up a bit for you and that you get some time to relax and take a little break from everything for a while Β β™₯ xxxx

      2. It doesn’t take much to tip me over too so it’s not just you. I feel it is that way with everyone. I feel you give me way too much credit for being something I am not. Things get the best of me, at first, but I have found that when I start to pray, and cry out to the LORD, things begin to change. From my outlook to the whole situation in general. I have been through so many situations this week I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I am trying to wait until there is a resolve to post about it. I am so humbled by you always thinking so lovingly of me. It is really a blessing. As far as a break. I would love nothing more than to have one. Hopefully next week sometime, but at this time there is too much to do :) I know you get it. You are always in my prayers my friend, You are a good soul. That is a rarity these days and it is a shining light for so many people. I mean it when I say you are a blessing to more people than you will ever know. <3

    1. I am learning that too Laronda. I always feel I am there, and there is full trust but then I will find myself in situations as I am in now, and I will be human and do what we humans do. But God is so gracious, and full of mercy to reel me back in and show me once again that He is, as you said, Good. That I am His and that if I keep that in my focus, He will do all the heavy lifting and deliver :) Thank you for sharing your Godly insight with us. It is always appreciated :)

  4. It is also God’s way to draw you closer to Him. This world is not our home. In this life here on earth Lord Jesus is preparing us to have a New Life Everlasting with Him.
    Nonetheless I am so glad to hear that things according to the circumstances are going well.

    1. Thank you Jackie for your insightful encouragement. :) Yes, the LORD will put things before us that are beyond our understanding but if we just keep faith that He will guide us through, then He will do just that. I don’t want to come off as if I haven’t gotten frustrated, and complained and a few more fleshy feelings but God is merciful to reel me back in and remind me that I am His and to believe in Him, and He will deliver :)

      1. Good because I know what is right but that doesn’t mean I always react in the right way. I don’t ever want to come across as I react the right way all the times because I certainly fall short many times than not. But God is teaching me. Everything is a lesson. I am a slow learner AND hard headed :)

      1. Amen dear Margaret. My dear husband lost his job this past week. Please pray for us as we have lost our insurance too and will be job hunting. I know God will provide! He has always cared for me…..the last time we lost our job in 2012 we never went hungry. πŸ€—πŸ€—β€

      2. I just did and will continue to do so. You are always in my prayers but I will, since I already prayed I will start thanking Him for the blessings that He has waiting for your family. God knows what you need and He will always provide, just like you said dear friend :)

  5. A word that works no matter the journey or path we’re on, and no matter what we’re facing…

    “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him….James 1:2-5

    Blessings to you!!

      1. I completely understand not that we all walk the same paths so unless I am inside of you I do not “completely” understand but I certainly felt what you are going through, if that makes sense. We can be going though the same things and yet feel something different but I wanted to reach out and give you all the love that I felt reading your words. They touched me, as I feel I have been there.
