When in the midst of …

Continual, “no end in sight” stressful circumstances, how does one hold on to faith that the promises God has made will come true for us?

That is a question I am deeply entrenched in living out right now.  And I find my faith wavers.  At moments, I believe in God’s promises of a future of prosper and good things.  At other moments, I cannot see the end in sight of my struggles and I feel so alone!  Those moments challenge my faith the most.

A matter of a miracle

This post is taking me forever to finish…which is sad because of all the ones I have posted since starting my blog 2 weeks ago, this is perhaps the most important post of all I will write.

I received an honest-to-goodness miracle!!! Yes, I said MIRACLE.

The night it happened, and the subsequent 2 weeks after, I proclaimed my miracle and victory of God’s precious healing power, from the rooftops and to every one I came in contact with during that time. And now I want to share the miracle I received with you’all…
