Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Acts 2:46-47

God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. Psalm 68:6

He Loves Me No Matter What

I LOVE HER

I walk into her bathroom and I spy some blush and lip gloss on the counter. It’s a new thing for us. It throws me back to my teen years, trying all the Wet ‘n Wild and Cover Girl, figuring out just the right shade against my pale skin, mousy brown hair and freckles. I smile when I think of those same freckles splayed across her nose and wonder if she realizes how beautiful I think they are.

I was scared of these days–this transition from little girl to woman. I dreaded them, closed my eyes and sighed when I thought of them. I think I thought some strange version of my little girl would emerge suddenly, one I wouldn’t recognize, or like. We’re only in the beginning; the wrestling has just begun. But, so far, I’m saying this stage is my favorite. She’s the same little girl and yet with so much more humor and understanding. We can look at each other and say things without a word. The years have taught us our own language.

And yet, at every stage I’ve said it’s my favorite. As it turns out, I love her no matter what.

Sarah is a Scottish gal who moved to the US in 2012 to marry her American dream boy! She struggled through her early twenties failing to see God’s love, allowing hurt to shape and direct her paths. Having been rescued and redeemed by God’s grace and mercy, Sarah is now passionate about sharing the truths of God’s Word with the world. She has a desire to help women to study God’s Word in a way that will help them to be transformed by truth and live a life of freedom.

Each step was made in obedience with faith.

Scripture

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9

 At the Lord’s command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the Lord’s order and did not set out. Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the Lord’s command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out. Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out. Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out. Numbers 9:18-22

The day after tomorrow, toward evening, go to the place where you hid when this trouble began, and wait by the stone Ezel. 1 Samuel 20:19

If we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself. 2 Timothy 2:13
