Verse and prayers for Monday July 15

KRISTINEFREDRIKA - 10:25AM UTC, Jul 15th 2013


***Goodmorning sisters

back to work today. Thank You Lord. I'm ready. Remind me how much I appreciate this good gov't job today Father!

Father, I ask you to bless Annette and preserve her and her family in this decision not to attend a conflict filled family event...Lord, if it's possible you want us to be at peace with everyone...and sometimes that means staying away. Thank You Lord for your preservation of all your children:love: I ask your blessing on Steph today and on Erika. Thank you Father for this little group. When we pray for one another I believe you are moved to do big things. Thank You Lord!

This is a verse that came to my mind after church yesterday. It is so true. We want so many things and don't always understand God's plan for us. We need to trust that His plan is unique and tailored to each of His children. He knows what path to take us down to bring us closest to Him.

Isaiah 55:8-9
New International Version (NIV)
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Have a wonderful day sisters!


Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Kris--thank you:love:

Steph--thanks for made made me laugh about the clowns suit, hopefully he will work though his issues, but I feel for her too.


Hello Everyone,

I do need to confess that I am really struggling right now. I really do not feel like bringing up the reunion with my family, but at the same time I am not comfortable with my dad not bringing it up either. I am tempted to just send an email to my dad and sister and let them figure it out. I am having issues with getting too stressed on the inside that I haven't shared with my husband knows. I have been getting sharp pains in my chest when talking to my sister since just before the fourth, so I have just been quiet. She would stress if she knew, but my dad tends to lean too much on me being there for her when it comes to family events, and I just can't be that person this time. Please pray that I handle this situation with grace, continue to keep our new boundaries, yet leave room for God's healing. I really need God's protection in this because I have tried o just be the brave loving person in the past reaching out to people, but I need to be the quiet protective person this time....and I am very concerned that people are just going to get upset, which is very likely going to happen. I am just realizing that I never old my husband last night that my cousin offered to change the dates for us after he went to bed:(....I am really uncomfortable with dealing with all of this. I love my family, but I am just not up for any of this.....God's will be done in his grace.......I really do not want to have to explain anything to anyone anymore.

Thank you, prayers,



P.s. I called my dad....neither of us are sure what to do. He isn't really interested in going, my cousin kind of brags a lot, and she is kind of in the middle of doing a lot of that.....that is wonderful that she is very blessed and that a lot of people are there for her, but it stings.....we all love her, but I don't really want my kids around it right now. Political my cousins are very, arrogant and mouthy with opposite views than husband would be happy to debate using facts. Mainly, it is the bragging, with what we have gone through with my stepmom, it is not good timing for it at all.

Good Morning,

Kris your verse is right in tune with the rest of the verses that have been coming my way. God's timing not ours, he knows best.

Although, how I feel is more like the song from Switchfoot I heard on the way in to work this morning. :cross1:

Everyday I still feel the same
And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive?
I'm ready now
I'm not waiting for the afterlife

2 Corinthians 12:9
Common English Bible (CEB)
9 He said to me, “My grace is enough for you, because power is made perfect in weakness.” So I’ll gladly spend my time bragging about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power can rest on me.

The renter is going to be 2 weeks late this month. She said she would be on time next month. Five more months until she is supposed to buy the place. I really feel for her she is pregnant with her second child and her first is just a toddler. The latest I heard is her boyfriend has been dressing up like a clown and driving around town on a 4 wheeler flipping people off. At this point I really wonder if he has maybe something medically wrong with him.

My DH B-day is this Friday. He is going to come to Indy after he gets off work and I think we might go to Joe's Crab Shack for Dinner to celebrate. Saturday he is going to take a look at the mowers and help me with my wood situation in the back yard.:clap:

My youngest asked to stay longer at her Mom's. I guess there is a friend that she hasn't seen in a long time that she is hanging out with. When my DH called her they had just got back from swimming. I think she is having a good time. Although, according to her she hasn't seen much of her mother she just leaves and comes back without saying anything and is gone most of the time.

Just said a prayer for you ladies and I hope you have a blessed day:heart2:
