"Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities under foot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. You will show faithfulness to Jacob and steadfast love to Abraham..."
Micah 7.18-20

"Our greatest need has been met in Christ Jesus. We have been saved from our sin...and all our other 'needs' are miniscule in comparison!" -Mrs. Beloat

apology:

The author of this blog offers this small apology for the stale content. As of late, her computer has been...uncooperative shall we say? It was not her intent to leave a not-so-much-God-glorifying-fluff post up for so long. She would like to offer compensation, but a pending trip to Wales is absorbing all extra funds. :) Hopefully the resident tech genius will fix the problem and somewhat regular posting will resume.

Thanks. Keep pressing on toward the prize ya'll.

"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of your time, because the days are evil..." Eph. 5.15-16

"In the Bible God is saying, 'You won't always understand me, but you can always trust me. If I surprise you with trouble, I will also surprise you with the joy I'll bring out of that trouble. You may struggle to believe that right now. But what seems so impossible is the very thing I specialize in.'.."
"The victory will be God's and the delight will be ours. Right now we don't always treat God as a loyal ally. But He will be faithful still. When our hearts are finally and forever drawn away from all false saviours and are endlessly celebrating his all-sufficiency, we will know His name."
~Ray Ortlund Jr.
Some quotes that convicted me today. Currently studying Isaiah. The common theme is trust. Trusting God completely, surrendering all. Funny. That seems to be the theme of my circumstances right now too...
{psalm. 18:1-3}
