  1. Patience with me as I struggle with creating “margins, learning to release the never-ending task list, so that I can DO the really important stuff: sitting in His presence and loving others with my time and energy.

  2. I had a dentist appointment today last Thursday. I was feeling so anxious that I was almost physically ill. I asked the Lord for help and He made the appointment go better than I could have even imagined. His intervention was evident. I was so thankful!

  3. Although my income has been reduced,
    God is providing daily! Praise be to God
    “from whom all blessings flow”.*(doxology)

  4. In Courage,

    Over the years I have seen & heard God’s goodness. About 9 yrs. ago I was visiting dad at assisted living during lunch. He was having hard time feeding himself. I offered to do it for him. He said yes. The gentleman seated to the right of us said “You will get stars in your crown for this”. Wow! I knew it was God telling me that I was where I needed to be-not working but taking care of dad & in-laws. Fast forward to Dec. 2021. My prayer was for a full-time job. No parents to take care of & I really wanted to increase our income. God heard that prayer & had management write a job just.for.me. On the way home that day I cried & thanked Jesus profusely. The job duties were not what I expected, but I did my best. Last year I spoke to assistant manager & manager about a unit (work ICU) that needed a clerical stating I would like the job. Once again God comes through. The next day they gave me the position. So 2024 is going to be a banner year for us. We are praising God for His faithfulness to us.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. My hard work and efforts at work are usually overlooked/ignored at work,until i make a mistake,then I’m brought to the forefront and made to be embarrassed.

    Last week,an escalation happened that showcased my initiative, and put my ‘shamer’ in the position they always put me. I felt like God was watching over me and letting me know he sees me,and watching out for me..it meant a lot,as I have virtually no ally at work

  6. The Lord visited me recently in the night all night long. His wonderful Presence brought me such peace and comfort at a very difficult time in my life. I hold onto that glorious memory as He gave me strength and hope when I needed it most, as I am still going through a difficult time. All glory and honor and praise to my wonderful Lord Jesus forever and ever!

  7. Your article is where I am at this year as my verse this year is 1 Samuel 12: 16

    “Even now, take your stand, and see the great thing God WILL do BEFORE your eyes.”

    Every day so far in January , I HAVE seen something great happen .. including LIFE as a car drove straight for my husband , myself and grandson walking to school on Monday. Two feet before hitting us God swerved that cars wheels… “

    Hence my word for the year is ..EXPECT great things

  8. My father went to heaven five days before we celebrated Christ coming down to earth on Christmas. I see God‘s faithfulness in taking my father in his sleep with loved ones nearby. I see God‘s faithfulness in how my mom cared for him during his long battle with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. I see God‘s faithfulness in the details of planning his funeral. I see His faithfulness in protecting my family as they all arrive for funeral services during subzero temperatures, power outages, frozen pipes and snowstorms.

    I see God’s faithfulness in Him sending the Holy Spirit to be our comforter and encourager. Most of all I’m grateful for Jesus, His death and gift of grace so that I’ll be able to see my father again in heaven again someday.

  9. His faithfulness is there, even in the dark valleys when I can hardly feel His presence. He shows me glimpses of light that give me strength to move forward. Praise Jesus for His mercy and grace.
