I'm Still Here!

I can't believe that it has been months since I posted on here! The start of my pregnancy was really rough and I got away from blogging for awhile. I also have had some struggles trusting God with my finances and other areas of my life. As I pray and continue to stay in God's word, it is becoming easier to trust that he will provide for us.

Recently, I started attending a bible study with other women from my MOPs group. This has been good for me and helps me to stay focused on God's word. We are studying "Bad Girls of the Bible."

Daily devotionals are also helpful. I'm reading "Our Daily Bread" and a devotional by Joyce Meyers.


Each night I've been reading a bible story and praying with my girls, too. We spend time talking about God's word and I give them time to ask questions.

Some days have been better than others, but I think things are looking up- I guess what you would call having HOPE! Even though some days it doesn't feel like it, I know that God is there with open arms waiting for me to give my worries and my life to him- to trust him again.

Blessings,

Jen

Your having a boy! How exciting!

God works in amazing ways, sometimes it's hard to see that when you are in the midst of a crisis or what feels like a crisis, but He is always there and always faithful. It just might not look like we had envisioned.

It's good to see you back in the blogosphere!
