But Zion (Jerusalem in captivity) said, “The Lord has abandoned me, And my Lord has forgotten me.” [The Lord answered] “Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. “Indeed, I have inscribed [a picture of] you on the palms of My hands; Your city walls [Zion] are continually before Me.
ISAIAH 49:14‭-‬16 AMP

In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words.
ROMANS 8:26 AMP

Sharing

In the midst of reading the Unveiled Wife blog, I saw a guest post from a woman of the Nitty Gritty Love blog. From there, I did some more reading and I’m glad I chose to because it was encouraging and inspiring. The first post I read from NittyGrittyLove was, God Is In control of Surprises, which is one I’ll have to do a separate post on, but the second post I read I share with you now.

Blind Devotion: Now This Is True Love
The intro to this post is a bit funny, it’s content makes it worth the read. A testimony involving marriage and the little things.

Within that post is a short film titled Blind Devotion by Jubilee Project on YouTube. It’s a sweet short film. I won’t describe it here, but I do believe it can inspire and that it is worth watching. Catch the link below 🙂

“Love does not seek it’s own…” 1 Corinthians 13:5
“Let each of you look out not only for His own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4

Divine – Karen Kingsbury

First book review of 2011!

About a month ago I was looking for a book that was not focused on romance or anything of the sort. Divine is the book I found. I was actually surprised that Kingsbury wrote this book…I guess it’s because I’m used to reading about romance in her novels.

Anyway, Divine is a nice book to read. I recommend this book but I must say that the first half of this book may have you upset and probably even mad because of the decisions and actions of the characters. The main character, Mary, goes through physical, emotional, and sexual  abuse at an early age. What I like about Divine is that it shows how God can save anyone with any problem, if they are willing to receive it. I also like that throughout the whole book there is always a glimmer of hope and light that shines…because of her grandmother and all the other characters that believe in the true and living God. Although she does not always see the way of truth and hope in her life, Mary eventually recognizes it and accepts it, after all her attempts to find real love failed. As the story continues, you are able to see how God used what she went through to save others who also experience or have experienced what she went through.

Even the most hard to imagine situations in a person’s life, God can save. He can save us, no matter how far we think we’ve gone. All we have to do is call out to Him(God) with a contrite and humble heart and He will save us from a life of trouble, confusion, fear, pain, and much more. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).

Whatever trouble you may be going through, stop taking matters into your own hands and put it in the hands of God, trust Him. To give it all to God, to know what true love is, go to the Receive Jesus As Your Savior Today page above.
