Wisdom In The Womb

You taught me wisdom in that secret place, the womb.

God gave us wisdom in the womb. That bowled me over today when I read it. Not only did He love us so tenderly that we were each made uniquely and with a plan for our lives but He actually taught us wisdom in that secret place. I want to tap into that wisdom more. … Continue reading Wisdom In The Womb

Who Is the Door, Who Answers the Door, Who Opens the Door?

Jesus said, most assuredly, I am the door

Jesus does it all. He is the Savior. He answers the door when we knock and He opens closed and stuck doors for us. During chronic illness, there are a lot of doors we simply cannot open ourselves.

I answer for my character, not others. After moving out of the depths of chronic illness, I have to settle into life with the … Continue reading Staying Focused On My Character, Not Others

The Lord Provides A Broad Path

Resting is not my strong point. Sometimes I think I was afflicted with chronic illness just to get me to stop, slow down, rest. I can chatter about slowing down until the cows come home but actually doing it to the degree that an ill body needs was a completely different story. My body stopped … Continue reading The Lord Provides A Broad Path
