Awareness – day 7


As I mentioned in the previous post I am currently reading another devotional series.

This is a 7 day devotional entitled

Seeking Wisdom‘ If you want to read the full devotional click on the hyperlink. If not just wait daily and for the next  few days for the completion of the 7 day devotional. I will post their devotional with my own reflection piece.

These Past 6 days these devotionals touched on: Awareness, Assistance, Advice, Assumptions, Acceptance & Application. Today’s subject will be on Awareness.

Associated scripture with today’s devotional:


“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”

Jeremiah 33:3 ESV


Jeremiah is one of my favorite prophets. He prayed often. He is also known as the prophet who cried often. There is a song which I sing at church which speaks of that.

The song is in Spanish it goes like this

“Como Jeremías, oraba y lloraba

así quiero yo, orar y llorar.//

//Dios le contestaba la petición que hacia,

asi quiero yo que conteste la mía.//“

In English it roughly translates to:

Just like Jeremiah, prayed and cried

That is how I want to pray and cry.

God answered the petitions he made,

That is how I want god to answer mine.

His prayers were always answered. He lived knowing that God would answer his petitions. He had faith. He believed. He trusted. When he prayed he didn’t say I hope. He was determined he said God I know you can….

We should all pray like Jeremiah. With so much faith, trust, passion, fervor and belief in the one true and living God.

This passion, this trust, this much faith and belief leads me to today’s last devotional from the series.

Day 7 Mala Ministries:


Be reminded today that God knows, understands and even cherishes your diligent pursuit of wisdom.  As you seek, He is waiting to be found, and wishes to reveal to you “great and unsearchable things you do not know.”  Our desperate search for answers can sometimes blind us to the ultimate answer – the source of all things. As we read earlier this week, King Solomon was wise to acknowledge the source of His blessings. If we believe whole-heartedly in the source, there is then no room for fear or doubt, for we know that “from Him and through Him and for Him are all things” (Romans 11:36).

With the pursuit of a goal comes obstacles, challenges, mistakes to be made and lessons to be learned. This journey is no different. We have learned over the last six days that the process of seeking wisdom entails being aware, asking for assistance, receiving advice, being cautious with assumptions, practicing acceptance, and perfecting application – all these actions must be performed deliberately and diligently, with focus and intention. That being the case, another “to-do” may not seem appealing; but you will be happy to know that when it comes to affirmation, the only action required is that we receive it with open hearts.

So to you, friend, God is speaking, loud and clear. He tells you that you can stand affirmed, assured and secure in the knowledge that though the answers to some questions remain uncertain, His supply of wisdom, strength and guidance is certain. It is vast and abundant, and knows no bounds. That promise, as stated in Jeremiah 33:3, is a clear picture of His limitless resource of wisdom, which is yours to claim.

My closing prayer.

Father God most high, only you are worthy of so much praise. You know created the heavens and the earth. You who created man and the animals. You who are the one true living God. Guide me in supplying wisdom, strength and guidance to those in need deer lord. Guide me to the be more like Jeremiah in my prayers dear lord. I will call to you with all my might so that just like you answered Jeremiah you can answer me. I will always keep my eyes, my ears, my mind and my heart open for you dear lord, willing and ready to receive your blessings and word. In the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.


Assumptions – day 4



As I mentioned in the previous post I am currently reading another devotional series.

This is a 7 day devotional entitled: Seeking Wisdom‘ If you want to read the full devotional click on the hyperlink. If not just wait daily for the next  few days for the completion of the 7 day devotional. I will post their devotional with my own reflection piece.

Associated scripture with today’s devotional:


“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Romans 12:2 ESV


You know the saying not everything you see on TV (or on the internet ) is real. We cannot live assuming everything you read or see online or on TV is true. We are living in a society that people are manipulating data and facts to suit their own will and needs. Assuming that you can always accept the truth at face value is no longer viable in this day and age of alternative facts and fake news.

I have always been big on looking at the bigger picture, researching and testing theories to ensure if I can believe certain truths. My experiences has shown me that the biblical texts are true. God does love me. God dwells within me. I can feel his presence. I know this not because of something I read on the internet or saw on tv. I know this because I study his word. Meditate in his presence. I know this because I feel his love. I don’t need mans opinion to validate anything for me. I don’t need man to tell me something is without me looking into it myself. I don’t assume that what everyone tells me is true.

With this being said I am going to transition to today’s devotional.


Day 4 Mala Ministries:


Pray today that you will not be swayed by opinions that do not come from God. He is looking for you, and whenever you stray and return, you realize that He never moved. The world is filled with imitations and fads that come in the guise of wisdom but are actually snippets of evil disguised to give you comfort. No relationship crumbles because of a single blowout; almost all of them fail because we do not acknowledge the slow leaks that deflate us. Friends, be wise to the captivating assumptions of innocent wonder because you think there is no victim.

From the very first assumption in the Garden of Eden, man has always been susceptible to the negative influences of other people. Today, make a decision to question your own assumptions. “Why” you believe the God of the Bible is as important to the planning of your day as “what” you believe. Lean on Him to prevent the false promise within a false premise. Make a commitment that you will seek His will to overcome the assumptions that can be a roadblock to genuine wisdom.

One example of this is in the contemporary church. The biggest roadblock to contemporary worship is the doctrine and denomination that jeopardizes that worship. Worship is for God and not for the creator of the order of worship, or the one who is in charge of the bulletin. John Maxwell reminds us that we can indeed go to heaven sans a bulletin. The assumptions we make on what is holy, pious, traditional and ritualistic are sure to become obstacles if we keep looking to the “how” and not the “why.”

Today, meditate on the things you want to understand through the lens of God. When the lamenting prophet Jeremiah cried out to God, he was told, “Seek unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you cannot comprehend.” God is reminding us to look away from the prejudices of our own assumptions and at the majesty of His promise that lies just outside our comprehension.


My reflection:

Father God I thank you today for your love and mercy. I give you praise for your daily bread. I thank you for being ever present at every moment in my day. Thank you lord for always guiding me and not allowing me to accept assumptions as facts. Thank you for the ability to comprehend details laid before me. Amen.


Awareness – day 1

Currently I am reading another devotional series.

This is a 7 day devotional entitled: Seeking Wisdom‘.  If you want to read the full devotional click on the link. If not just wait daily for the next 7 days I will post their devotional with my own reflection pieces and prayers. I try my best to always include a prayer at the end of each post. I do so because prayer is just so important in ones walk. It is our direct line of connection to God.

Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.”

Proverbs 4:24-26 ESV


This scripture is associated with the devotional. Before we get in to the message from the devotional, let’s look at the scripture. What do you take from this verse? What do you see. We need to be mindful of what we say, what come out of our mouths and how we say certain things is what I get from the first part of this verse. Then in the second part where the proverb tells us to look forward and look straight, is a reminder to me that no matter what we have been through in our lives we need to keep moving forward. The last part of this verse to me speaks volumes of how we walk in our walk. Think about what your doing, where you are going, why you are going that way, all the while looking straight ahead and moving forward. It’s the only way to surely know where one is going.

Did I loose you? Have you ever said or done something you regretted? We all have. This verse is gentle reminder that we need to be mindful in what we say and do, and how to keep focused, aware and know our surroundings and where we plan on going. My mistakes of my past, well that’s where they are in my past. As I walk my walk I need to be diligent in my actions, my speech, my everything not because of who is watching but because of My desire and passion to join God when my time comes. My words, my actions and my heart need to my in sync with the same goal. Living a just and holy as possible life so I can be with my creator. I need to focus On my destination, while looking forward to arriving to my destination, all the while reminding my self of where i came from, what i have done, what i never want to repeat so I can stay focused on looking ahead, walking forward.

We need to be aware!

This brings me to the devotional I read.


Day 1 Mala Ministries:



In the pursuit of fame and in the search for significance, the material world consumes our pursuits and fatigues our desires. Every morning, people wake up and evaluate their past hope and their present situation, creating a mortal comparison that leaves them feeling more empty than full. The question you may have this morning is why your own efforts leave you wanting more. The answer is in the word of God, before the world of God. He who created the heavens and the earth sought it wise to make Him the only end of all pursuit.

A. W. Tozer once said that God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves. Today, as you plan for the week ahead, reflect on the word of God and cherish through prayer the search for His wisdom; this is the correct use of the knowledge He gave you. To be an agent of wisdom, you must not exhaust yourself by seeking a new definition of His will; rather, enjoy yourself by showing a new demonstration of His will.

Pablo Cassals was a world famous cello player, and at the height of his fame, was asked why he kept practicing. His response was that he thought he was making daily progress. Genius has been described as the ability to focus on the task at hand. Becoming aware of your strengths and limitations is only possible through a deep awareness of God and His purpose for your life. David, the shepherd king of Israel, said: “I am constantly aware of your unfailing love. Awareness of this unending love is the beginning of wisdom.”

To be aware requires focus, and to be focused requires awareness. As you meditate today, ask God to help you become aware of His majesty. Your mind will open to possibilities and probabilities that you never even dreamed about. May your eyes be closed to all that distracts and your heart open to the abundance of His provision, which will set you on a new course.

My closing:

What a beautiful devotional about awareness. Just as this proverb reminded us. We need to be aware and focused. We need to always ask God for assistance, open to the possibilities to come. Your eyes need to be focused to the final goal. Reject distractions and anyone or anything that is leading you to deter back. No matter what happened in your past, when you trust in God, he will set you on the path you need to go to receive his glory and blessings.

Stay focused, stay aware, keep looking forward, remember where you want to go, remember and be mindful to what can take you off course, don’t fall in to temptation nor distraction, keep your eyes looking forward, trust in God and stay on your path with God.

Father God I thank you for another day, another opportunity to glorify you. I thank you for the air I breathe, for my ears that can hear, my eyes which can see, and all my senses which allow me to be aware of your majestic glory. I know my lord I am. It perfect. I have sinned before, I will no longer live in my past. Help me lord to keep my past just there so I can focus on you my lord and my walk with you. Help me lord to be aware of my surroundings, actions and words. Help me remain focused on looking ahead dear Lord so that I do not stray from your Path. I pray for whoever is reading this who needs this guidance in their lives. Lord I am asking that allow me to intercede for them in prayer, may these words, this prayer touch their hearts, their eyes, their ears, their soul so they too can be aware, look ahead, and continue their walk with you. In the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit Amen.


Our Father


One of the best things we have about learning to pray, is that there’s really no wrong way to pray. Again it’s a conversation with our Lord, our creator, our father. He sends his perfect son who teaches us how to pray.

In the third segment of this prayer devotional Plan White mentions that the way to pray is to our father. It is true, Jesus shows we do not need anyone to send a message to God. We got that direct connection with him. We don’t need a saint nor a messenger. We got God and he’s on call….ready and waiting on you.

Here is the last segment of White’s devotional. [The devotional plan is called ‘Teach Us To Pray’ by Rob White. Check it out here: ]

Devotional 3

Jesus tells his disciples that the way to pray is to our Father. And by Father, he doesn’t mean just another title, but a relationship. So the context in which we pray is the context of family, where we as children approach a loving father. I realise as I write that for some the word ‘father’ falls as a hollow thud, because your experience of earthly fatherhood was not a good one. However, apart from finding release from the grip of that limitation you can, I trust, at least recognise that there is such a thing as good fathering, and that if the Bible is right about God being a father, then he would be a perfect one.  Fatherhood means access. In other words, I’m invited. It also means acceptanceI’m welcomed. Furthermore, it means attentionI’m heard. Do you see how praying in the context of the child–Father relationship puts the whole thing on a different footing?

Maybe you’ve always wondered how other people manage to pray with purpose and passion. You’ve heard them, seen them, but your prayer life seems rather sterile in comparison. By praying aright, we can find that purpose and passion ourselves.  So here we have opened our hearts to our Father and renewed, as it were, the relationship with him.

When we pray, ‘Our Father in Heaven’, we are talking to one whose power operates from the ground up or the highest point of the heavens down. In other words, there is not one part of the universe we know (and that which we don’t know) that is outside of the involvement and influence of our Father. That must have great bearing on our faith as we pray, realizing that nothing is beyond our Father’s scope.

Notice that there are no singular personal pronouns in the prayer. It’s all ‘our’, ‘we’ and ‘us’. Many of us were brought up with a very individualistic view of faith and Scripture. It was all about me—that Jesus died for me, God has forgiven me, I’m bound for heaven, etc. When we read Scripture in the light of community, we realize that most of it is addressed to us corporately. Obviously that doesn’t take away from the personal, because the corporate is made up of individuals, but it should affect the way we believe, live and pray.

Associated scriptures:

Matthew 7:11 NLT:

“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.”



Matthew 7:21 NLT:

““Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter.”



Matthew 18:19 NLT:

““I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”



Father God I thank you for this three part devotional plan. I hope this cane be of a blessing to someone in need. I hope this can be a blessing to someone looking to seek a closer relationship with you. Amen.

Good Prayer

What makes a good prayer?

Some can recite our father without batting an eye. Many of us were taught the our father since we were in pre-school.

Some pray long, extensive loud.

Others have short prayers, straight to the point some would say.

I was taught the Acts prayer growing up.

  • Adoration
  • Confession
  • Thanksgiving
  • Supplication.

We praise and worship our lord.

We confess our sins.

We give thanks for what we have.

We bring our requests for ourselves or others.

My sons have prayers vary.

Sometimes they say “thank you Jesus for this day, god bless xyz, amen.

Sometimes they are more detailed in their prayers.

Before meals they are very specific:

“Thank you Jesus for this food amen”.

Here is what Whites devotional plan has to say: [The devotional plan is called ‘Teach Us To Pray’ by Rob White. Check it out here: ]

Devotional 2:

Some could be thinking, ‘Hey, that’s good, it’s a short prayer so I can do that easily.’ Not so fast! Do we really think that Jesus taught us to pray with something that can be rattled through in a few seconds? The problem is that this prayer is well known to most of us, and is said or sung in many places with no further thought. It is often used like a kind of mantra. So it becomes fairly meaningless.

Here’s what Jesus was doing. The rabbis in Jesus’ day taught people ‘index praying’. You know what an index is—it appears, usually at the beginning of a book, giving chapter numbers and titles. Imagine using a large book for any study or work you’re doing and finding there’s no index. How would you find your way around? On the other hand, what if there were just an index and no substance to the book? The point of the index is to act as a pointer to the substance.

That’s exactly what index praying was all about. The rabbis would provide the points for prayer, like an index, and the people would fill in the substance—their own prayers. This is the method Jesus was teaching in this prayer. Can you now see the Lords Prayer is like that? And what an index of titles!

1. Worshiping the Father

2. God’s kingdom

3. God’s will/guidance

4. Our daily needs

5. Forgiveness/relationships

6. Spiritual warfare

I challenge you to find one subject, broadly speaking, that’s not covered in this prayer. No wonder Jesus taught it! Hopefully you can begin to see why it’s such a great prayer to pray and how it can help you in your prayer life.

Why is praying in this way so helpful?  Because we’re obviously praying according to God’s will— and that’s something with which I often struggled as I read the verse that says, ‘This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears uswhatever we askwe know that we have what we asked of him.’ (1 John 5: 14–15). How could I be sure that what I was praying was according to his will? Surely I must have been praying according to his will if I was praying the prayer he gave.

Associated scriptures:

John 17:1-5 NLT:

“After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you. For you have given him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one you have given him. And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth. I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.”



Luke 11:2-4 NLT:

“Jesus said, “This is how you should pray: “Father, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. Give us each day the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation. ””



1 John 5:14-15 NLT:

“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.”



God thank you lord for showing us the way to connect with you and pray. Father we lift your name high for you are worthy of all the praise. Thank you lord for your love and mercy. Thank you for your words and teachings. Thank you for your guidance. Lord if I have offended anyone or sinned I come before you now for forgiveness. Lord I ask that those who wonder about prayers, whether if they are debating about if they praying enough, or praying the right way, lord I hope and pray that this series guides them. Lord our prayers are our way to connect with you. Our prayers are our way to check in with you. Our prayers are about praising you and giving thanks for everything you continue to do in our lives. Father God our prayers are also to intercede for ourselves and each other dear lord. Lord I know each need is different and every time we pray it’s because a different need is being addressed. No two prayers will ever be alike for no two days will ever be alike. Thank you again lord for all you do. Amen.


Desire, Discipline and Delight.

Romans 8:39 NLT

“No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

A few weeks ago my husband and I were asked to take over the children’s ministry. I must say it was rather a big surprise for us both to be considered yet felt a lot of joy to be able to do more work for God.

The past few weeks I have spent less time on my blogging and devotional materials because I have spent more time preparing for my lessons.

I am sorry for no updated messages or words of encouragement. I will try my best to incorporate some of my lessons here as well as put up as many devotionals as I can.

When we were introduced to the kids as their new teacher, the lesson for that specific day was prayer. Why do pray? Who do we pray for ? How do we pray? What do we pray about? And why is prayer important?

We saw how the kids engaged in this subject, asked questions, New the answers to some. It was a good preparation to what is to come.

We asked the teacher what were the kids doing as far as their lesson because we didn’t want to start something new if they had already began something else.

She said they just briefly scratched the surface of chapter 1 of Nehemiah.

A light bulb went off, we just finished the Nehemiah lesson in our adult Bible study. My husband is learning more about the Bible. This is perfect. We said we will continue Nehemiah. For two reasons. 1- we didn’t want to take the kids off course on something they just started. 2- the lessons of some of the things we learned were still fresh so we will be able to teach them efficiently.

Nehemiah is a man who prays often.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Paul reminds us all to pray without ceasing. No matter what we do, no matter where we are we are to never stop praying. Prayers are our open channel of communication with God. Prayers are very intimate. We pray for our loved ones, our friends, our leadership, our pastors, our work, the sick, the elderly, our struggles, our desires, we pray for forgiveness for our sins, we Thank the lord for our blessings and we keep it as real as possible. Prayer is our heart pouring out it’s wants, love, gratitude, desires, thanks and praise to the Lord. I don’t think there is anyone we ever get this intimate with. He knows it all, no one, absolutely no one knows us better than he does.

A few weeks before we started this journey to teach, I have been reading about prayer. Between our lessons, my devotional and additional help. Prayer has been in my mind.

I wanted to share this devotional I found in my bible app. It’s a three part devotional.

The devotional plan is called ‘Teach Us To Pray’ by Rob White. Check it out here:

So here is day 1 of White’s plan:

Prayer can be showy. You’ve probably been in prayer gatherings where someone prays a long prayer using flowery language. Prayer is not entertainment; it’s a time of fellowship with God.

I know you can pray anywhere but there is something about having a place where we pray regularly. As I grew in my new-found zeal for prayer I began to find myself really looking forward to my prayer times sensing I was really meeting with the Father. The room in which I prayed became synonymous with those times and I would go to the room expectant that I was going to meet with God. The result was that I approached my personal prayer times with faith.

Praying for a long time, using many words or repetition doesn’t mean we are more likely to get God’s attention. I really don’t know why we feel that God will hear us more clearly like that. This Scripture makes it clear that it’s not about words, length or repetition, because God knows anyway. It’s about quality—the right heart attitude, concentrating on what we’re doing, trying to live a life that doesn’t contradict our prayer life—not quantity.

Let me explain 3D praying to you. The three Ds stand for Desire, Discipline and Delight. First, and you cannot bypass this starting point, there needs to be Desire. Desire to be a person of prayer. Without that desire, nothing will ever change. You can’t force the desire, but you can ask God to plant that in you by his Spirit.

Second, it requires Discipline. Actually, you could double the D and make it daily discipline. This is the hard part, as you’ve probably already discovered. But I want to assure you that as you face the discipline it gets a lot easier; you’ll find the third D eases it considerably.

The third D is Delight. Yes, truly prayer has become a delight for me: spending time with the Father, opening up my life with its ups and downs, hearing what he has to say to me. What’s not to like! That means that I can look forward to praying; making my way towards the place where I usually pray I’m actually expectant that I’ll meet God during that time. What a change! It’s delightful.

Associated scriptures from the Plan:

Matthew 6:5-8 NLT:

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!”

1 John 5:3 NLT:

“Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome.”

Luke 11:1 NLT:

“Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.””


Mr. White mentions his 3ds of prayer, Desire, Discipline and Delight.

We have to desire this with all our might. We need to be disciplined in our prayers so that we are not rambling away. We need to take delight in praying to God. We need to want it, have that passion and fire for prayer, we need to be disciplined in our time with God but in what we speak to God about. We need to enjoy our time with God. It’s the most precious time of our time with him.

Father God I thank you for the wonderful blessings you have bestowed in my life. I know I am undeserving of these blessings, but you have blessed me none the less. You have shown me love, kindness, mercy and forgives. Lord I know many like myself have this passion and desire to spend more time with you in prayer. The person reading this might need your help in their desires. I am asking to intercede for them so they can desire praying with you. Discipline is an important factor in praying dear lord, we need to take our prayers with you seriously for this is very intimate as well. I am asking to intercede for those whom need more discipline in their prayers with you, may your words guide them with the discipline they need to pray with you. Lord I take delight in praying to you. I take delight in our time. This comes with both desire and discipline in ones prayer. May everyone found the delight passion and joy that prayer gives. Amen.


Gathered in his name

I tell my kids all the time when we are unable to physically make it to church. As song as we are here, worshipping alongside the live stream broadcast or doing our own bible study lesson with each other the presence of the lord is evermore present as if we were at church congregating with our fellow church members. It can be just as a blessing. The important is that we focus on God, learning about God, praying to God and worshipping God.

Always remember whenever you are, as long as there are two or three or more in worship God is there. Don’t be shy, don’t be embarrassed about your location, don’t fuss about circumstances you cannot control. Put all trust in God’s hands.

The other day during this article blast we had post post the cyclone bomb, line many in the northeast battling frozen or busted pipes, my household experienced the same thing. Our main water heater pipe froze.

My day in Meme…. I joked that day, because we cannot freak out when things don’t start out the way you hoped. I literally created memes to discuss my day. Yet my children and I gathered to still watch the livestream of our church’s sermon. Part of the days message said…. you have to do something different.

. I joked about the situation as it was happening and even after because stressing, freaking out was not an option.

We put trust in God that it wasn’t going to be that bad and it will be fixed… and just like that God is good. My pipes were frozen, but at least it did not burst. Now we not only have heat and hot water again, but the sermon was a play by play of the actions we took in our faith in God in our given situation.

Knowing it could be worse, but having faith it will not get there.:.. as we listened to the sermon I thanked the lord…. because it could’ve been worse. On another note… we had cake too. I made sure my kids stood warm while the problem was addressed…. and nothing solves problems better than ones faith in God and home made Cake…. 🙂

But honestly like Olaf the kids and I joked about needing warm hugs lol

Todita all is well.

Our house is fine.

The point of the story, we gathered our faith and trust in God. Not only was he ever present, but the sermon of the day spoke to us directly. God fixed our situation by guiding my husband and in no time our pipe was unfrozen and things were back to normal.

Father God I thank you for the events that took place. Not only were we able to confide in you for strength and refuge dear lord knowing you would provide. We trusted that you would provide, but you also confirmed our actions with that days sermon. We thank you for guiding us, inspiring us and making sure we had everything we needed. Though I joked about the cake dear lord, it was comforting to know that you put that thought to make the cake and we listened. It helped keep us warm while we awaited things to get fixed. I thank you again dear lord Amen.
