the goodness of God

the picture taken after a rain/wind storm … I was walking across a footbridge and the stuck on leaves caught my eye … and Psalms are ALWAYS full of note worthy sayings … relatable, even after thousands of years … God uses the everyday to get my attention …

repost ... answered prayer ...

this was a post I wrote after we were able to find a condo in the tight real estate market in our small community … we had been praying for a year … this post is 13 years old yet the praise for answered prayer is still on our lips!  GOD is good!

the sale of our cottage, finding the rental and now, finally, the much prayed for condo - all these moments i have shared with you ...

tonight is the last sleep before we get the keys to answered prayer - imagine!

if you have the time, take a journey with me into my archives ... to see how the Lord directed our path to arrive where we are today ...

the cottage we had lived in for 14 years, sold dec 2, 2005 ... we felt so strongly that God was in it ...

next came the realization we didn't have anywhere to move!

then the Lord gave me verses to cling to, through a scary time

even finding a rental seemed to be extremely difficult

my anxieties continued, until i had to "fire" the hardworking saija, and let God deal with everything ... click here

after much searching and prayer ... God just "dropped" the condo into our laps!

He HAS given me the desire of my heart ... but in the end - it is only God - not possessions or people or places ... that IS the DESIRE of my HEART...

to HIM be the Glory ... now and forever more ...

yup yup ... only one more sleep ... *grin*

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God ..."

Psalms gives comfort

this was a sunset in Ontario, Canada … a year ago … God colours the sky, using it as His canvas … I have been reading Psalms/Proverbs daily for the past 3 months - and I see God's hand on the written page as well … God gives comfort to His children, in so many ways … be blessed.

we always need God's help

I wouldn't last a day in the earthly wilderness of confusion, without Jesus.
