Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood: Bible Study Review

Recently, I had the privilege of working through Melissa B. Kruger’s encouraging devotional Bible study called Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood. Broken into eleven chapters, each chapter includes sections of days one through five, so that one can work through the material a day at a time for daily Bible devotionals over eleven weeks. Each chapter consists of a topic in the theme of walking with God: walking by faith, walking in wisdom, walking in prayer, etc. As Melissa B. Kruger states, such a study is needed to give us the right perspective as mothers during all…

He Delights in Me and So I Have Joy!

My word of the year is “joy.” As I get older and live in this estate of sin and misery that is our world, I NEED to focus on joy more, not the passing pleasures of “happiness.” For happiness is just a temporary feeling.

Joy is a huge emphasis in…

Why Would I Rob Myself of Joy?

Psalm 30 1I will exalt you, Lord,    for you lifted me out of the depths    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.2 Lord my God, I called to you for help,    and you healed me.3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;    you spared me from going down to the pit. 4 Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;    praise his holy name.5 For his anger lasts only a moment,    but his favor lasts a lifetime;weeping may stay for the night,    but rejoicing comes in the morning. 6 When I felt secure, I said,    “I will never be shaken.”7 Lord, when you favored me,    you made…

Living in Love

In the first five verses of Psalm 103, we see the benefits of being God’s child – If we are in Christ, He:forgives all our sin,heals all our diseases,redeems our lives from the pit,crowns us with love and compassion, andsatisfies our desires with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. God’s grace enables me to soar like an eagle and not grow weary! But even more than grace, God loves us! This isn’t some temporary passing emotion like “falling in love” but a love that is connected with forgiveness of sin. As sinners, we shouldn’t be…
