  1. “He didn’t rescue me from my circumstances as much as He rescued me within them” What a powerful statement of our almighty good God! Thank you for sharing! Continued blessings to you.

  2. This was a wonderful reminder of what I tend to forget. We are covered & loved by a faithful Father. May I be mindful of that even during the hard stuff of life.

  3. Did I ever need to read this today. It has been a horrendous past 6 weeks and yesterday just about pushed me over the edge. But, then I prayed to God and while all is not well, I know I can get through this. And I can accept that whatever happens, good or bad, God is there.

  4. Putting into writing the testings of your life and how God saw you through them all, God has used them as a great testimony and encouragement to me today. Indeed, our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is faithful and worthy of all praise forever and ever. Amen!

  5. I hope you don’t mind, but I used your post as my prayer during my quiet time today. I spoke it out loud and thanked God using the verbiage in your post. Praise God for leading you to write this post and encourage me and others.

  6. All I can do is shout AMEN!!!!!!!
    You expressed not only your life and experience but the same for many including myself.
    In His eyes sin is sin. It is us who categorize sin as small to large or ginormous.
    Praise Jesus that His blood set us free!!!

  7. Awesome word. THANK YOU!!! I am learning to trust in a new level that I have never been before. So glad you received it early in life. Blessing, grace, truth and revelations of His love to you in abundance.

  8. Karina,

    I go to a Christian Church & we do communion each week. We have a communion meditation then pray, play soft music as we get the cup & bread. There have been many times I cried when I think what Jesus did for me. He left the splendor of Heaven to come down to broken Earth. He knew He had to die a horrible death on a cross. He was scourged, carried the cross & died a bloody death just for me. That alone awes me!! Then daily He forgives my sins & showers me with grace & mercy. I want to run towards Him fast. No one else can help me through trials like He can. I will be forever indebted to Him. As a great big thank you I volunteer with Loaves & Fishes food bank. Helping make take home meals or food boxes & even praying for those receiving the food. It is one way I can shine His love to others.

    Blessings 🙂
