Grace and Truth ~ Gift Of Waiting

13183057_10154416122866992_76830177_nHere is this week’s Grace and Truth ~ Gift Of Waiting…

Speaking of waiting…I mentioned last week that I had the chance to meet a blogging friend!  On Sunday, I met Dawn Klinge from Above the Waves!  I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was!  It truly was the highlight of our little family getaway…enjoying fresh oysters was a distant 2nd 😉 

We met up at the famous Seattle Market…enjoyed a lunch of delicious crepes and got to know each other’s families a little.  What a wonderful day!

 

Article-21aThere is a bit of wisdom that has been on my heart for quite a few years now – some wisdom for young, adult woman who are not yet married.  I would love for them to know that they don’t need to ‘husband hunt’.  Getting married should not be the goal of their life – sure, maybe one of the goals, but not the ultimate goal.  Don’t get me wrong, I love being married.  But…if us older ladies would just stop asking the younger women about when marriage is coming or if they have found a suitable boyfriend yet…how about asking them questions like “What is God doing in your life these days?” or “What exciting thing is God asking you to do?” or “How have you been living to glorify God?”.  Living for God and glorifying Him ought to be the main goal in all of our lives – including our young, single sisters.  That’s why I appreciate Candace’s post on Shining Stars.  4 Ways to Embrace the Gift of Waiting – a lovely post…by a younger, single sister.

God-makes-beautiful-things-out-of-the-brokenness-of-our-lives-700x368Do you have a shameful past (like me?)…on you’d rather keep hidden because if people knew, they would judge and condemn you?  Yup…I believed that lie, too.  But as I continued to share my story, I began to see the redemptive power in it…not just for me, but countless others.  Yes, some people judged…but their judgements were overshadowed by the joy in sharing, the miracle of women being set free and coming to Christ.  That’s why I chose Tiffiney’s post for this week’s feature: When You Are The Woman At The Well.  Hop on over to read her post and be encouraged.

How We Unknowingly Give The Enemy A Foothold

I just sat there in shock at what she was telling me.  I could not believe that my best friend and her husband vacationed at this resort…in fact, I didn’t even know such a resort existed.  She proceeded to tell me about the forbidden pleasures she and her husband had entertained several months before.  There were even some aspects that I hadn’t quite understood until my husband clarified later on…it was much worse than I had originally thought.  And to top it off, she had the audacity to say that she had prayed and prayed for God’s peace in her heart for this forbidden vacation spot.  I didn’t even know what to say.  However, the look on my face said more than enough.  A couple of weeks later, that friendship ended because I was ‘too judgmental’.  I had been asking God that if He no longer wanted me to be in this friendship, that He would end it…so He did.  The ending of this friendship forced me to take a good, long hard look at the sin in my own life.  It made me want to turn away from it all the more as I witnessed how far this friend and her husband had slid down the slippery slope of sexual sin.  I had to get rid of that foothold Satan had in my life, the foothold I had allowed.  I want to share with you How We Unknowingly Give The Enemy A Foothold.

I have justified my sin more times than I'd like to admit. It can be pretty easy when we have the wrong view of sin and how it affects our lives. Sin always leads to death...always. How We Unknowingly Give Satan A Foothold

Excuses, Excuses

Have you ever defended your sin?  Or made light of it?  Perhaps someone confronted you about it and you just made excuse after excuse.  Or maybe you turned the tables on them and pointed out their sin so the heat was off of you.  As much as we want to hold on to that sin, we must be aware of the opportune times that we are giving to satan with our death grip on that thing we just don’t want to give up.  Especially the sin we justify and make excuses for.  Read More
