  1. It always amazes me how there are just perfect verses in the Bible that apply to our lives. I am grateful to you Michele, and other (in) courage writers, that you find these verses and share them with us.

    • Isn’t God’s word amazing? He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And yet, His word is fresh and new and I continue to discover new depths. Only our God!

  2. Michele, amazing soul, you are on the front lines. Thank you for sharing your hardships and faith as you trudge through life’s minefields, trusting that the Almighty will always lead his beloveds to the rock that is higher

  3. AMEN! WOW! This SO closely reflects the heart of the storm The Lord has so recently seen my Mama and I through! GOD IS SO FAITHFUL! This is just what I needed this morning to reflect and see how He has fought for us! All Glory to God! Maranatha!

  4. On my way to work this morning I asked God for a sign, and here it is. Thank you for being obedient!

  5. Love this so much!! This one is a keeper (I keep great devotionals in a folder).

  6. Thank you. This post is so helpful in my current state of persistent emotional and physical detours.
    I must rely on my Faith to see the light of the future and God’s plan for myself and those I love .

  7. Michele,
    This is exactly what I needed to hear this morning. I am in a very similar place. Just trying to remember He is real and bigger than what I am facing no matter how much my emotions are screaming or how big the waves of fear and anxiety that try to crash over me. Be still, my soul, and wait before your God. I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living

  8. I needed this today. My family is in a position where we don’t know which steps to take but also know God is the only one who can provide the miracle we need.

  9. The first time I had cancer I was given a book by Robert Morgan called “The Red Sea Rules” which gives us God given strategies for difficult times. I highly recommend it. God bless!

  10. Michele,

    Staying grounded in God’s word is paramount in any situation. Knowing what God has to say will help you defeat the evil one & his negative thoughts. Everyone will have trials down here on Earth. But God is good & He will see us through each & everyone. Praying that God will give everyone a discerning heart to know His will & the steps He wants you to take on your journey. Great post!!
