Hebrews 12:1-3

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

A Day That Changed My Life!

May 12, 2012 – Mother's Day

A day that changed my life for ever. Three years have passed. One way it feels like forever and another I still cant believe that its happened. Needless to say I have had ups and downs along the way. Wrestling with God but knowing He is faithful. I know many of you continue to pray, I am so blessed and thankful that God has placed everyone of you into my life. I keep saying to myself that God has a perfect plan, He uses all things for good and for His glory, in His time not Mine and He will never leave me. He has given us so many promises to cling to. He gives me everything I need when I need it. It's hard to understand but I need to remain faithful. Easier said than done that's for sure. You all know what I'm talking about. What separates us is not what we're going through because everyone of us will have a trail. The great divider is how we handle the trials when they come. What brings me comfort is that God can use this to help others and that through this He will be glorified. Does that make it easy, No. Do I understand why God has chosen not to heal me yet,No. Do I struggle daily, Yes. Do I have a hope in Him, Yes. Does God give me what I need to face each day, Yes. Do I questions God, all the time. In spit of me and my downfalls, He is faithful and full of grace.

What have we've been up to.....
In our new home and unpacked – cooking again
Landscaping has started- I can't wait for grass
We have a new puppy – Stanley!
Julia will soon be on the roads all by her self – She and Emily are planning a road trip this summer.

I continue to do physio 2 days a week as well as acupuncture. One of those days Mike and I head off to the pool for therapy. We have seen some progress but as I have said before progress is slow, VERY slow.

So I pray for faith and I am learning to meditate on His truth. Romans 10:17” So, then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” The only way this happens is if I spend time in His word. I'm working on that to. Romans 8:28 “for those who love God all things work together for good” This isn't to remind or tell us that all things in our lives work for our good. God isn't working to make us happy but to fulfil His purpose. I pray daily that I will leave all things to Him and trust in His word.

Thanks to all of you that continue to lift me in prayer, yes I am still praying for complete healing I know He is capable.

  1. God Bless you my friend. Thank you for sharing. xoxoxo The power of our fathers healing is incredible and trusting in him as a child is something that I strive for everyday. A great example of trusting in Jesus is when my little boy Arkadius was only 2 he would climb up on the table and smile, jumping in my arms knowing that I will catch him everytime. His confidence and trust in a great example of how much he loves us. Falling into his arms and trust in his healing. This etched into my heart and soul. This was during all my health issues and during the darkest times in my life. It gave me strength, hope and filled me with great confidence in our father. I hope this story makes you smile. XOXOXO

  2. Wow Sandra! Thank you so much for sharing....that God is your HOPE and that he will give you STRENGTH! You are an AMAZING women of faith! Blessings Ev

  3. I will continue to pray for complete healing in expectation. The Lord is a Father who delights in answering our prayers and who asks us to fight the good fight of faith, and to expect more that we could ever think or imagine. He is able to do much more because nothing is too difficult for him. The Lord always react to our faith and it pleases him when we adore him and expect. Thank you Jesus I trust in you. cbonhomme

  4. I will continue to pray for complete healing for you. The Lord says he can give us more than we could ever think or imagine and He reacts to our faith. No man who ever trust in Him will ever be disappointed Rom 10:11 Thank you Jesus I trust in you. cbonhomme

    1. Just read your comments on Mother's Day. Believe me, our lives are connected, even though we experience different trials. But we do have the same remedy. By using it, we can survive and advance, rather than retreat in adversity. It's my topic for the coming fall season at W2W. It touches me deeply that you keep displaying the sufficiency of God's grace on your platform of great trial...Irene.

  5. We continue to pray for you and your family Sandra. While I have just read your latest entry, it does not mean that you are forgotten. Indeed, what a blessing and encouragement your writings have been, as we see the depth of your faith in God through them. Thank you dear one. - b.smith-lunam
