  1. Amen! I am sorry you are learning this truth in the trenches yet such valuable truth of our great God! Thank you for sharing! Blessings (((0)))

  2. Such a powerful message. I had a restless night sleep and I was still unsettled this morning even after prayer. But you write there is nothing too broken or can be fixed by God’s hands and it is something I need reminding.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    • Madeline, I’m so glad these words met you right when you needed them…hoping you’ve been finding rest and sleep for your body and mind. God is working even as we sleep. What peace in knowing that <333

  3. Ruth,
    Your writer exquisitely depicts where my sons and I found ourselves 17 years ago. God provided bountiful grace at that time. My heart continues to reflect on His divine presence through those difficult times. May you also find yourself reflecting in the same way in the near future.

  4. This reminds me of a quote by Elizabeth Elliott that goes something like this…When you’re broken maybe it’s because God can use the pieces to feed the multitude.

    Thank you for your beautiful writing/reminder today!

  5. Thank you for these encouraging words. I needed them. The Lord has always brought me through these seasons and I know He will again. He is faithful always! God bless you all! ❤️

  6. Thank you, Rachel! You have a lovely way of reminding us that we are held in our Father’s arms. Your dreams are not broken. Some of them are just waiting in the wings, while you raise your family.

  7. Prayers for you and your family Rachel \0/ Sometimes a season in life is so hard to understand. Many family members and friends are going through such a similar season….”life shouts demands with its to-dos and to-bes”
    Becky Keife recently wrote a reminder about being God’s daughter (2/16/24) I printed it out and placed it on my desk so I can be reminded….”that is who I am” I also sent it to my daughter and she sent it to a friend.

    The waiting of God’s timing is hard. The good news, as you reminded us….”everything and everyone will be okay”.
    You are His beloved daughter. You are a royal warrior

    • Thank you to the writer Rachel & all persons who have commented.
      Beautiful, inspiring & supportive comments.

      Reading the message & listening to the Podcast has given me Peace &
      a reference to trust God’s perfect plan !

      Janet I was thinking of asking you about your comment with a reference to
      Becky Keife who recently wrote a reminder about being God’s daughter (2/16/24).

      Unable to find my email of (2/16/24) with this message. I googled her name & have
      found many messages which I look forward to reading.

    • Janet, thank you for this note with reminders of encouragement all tucked through it. Especially holding onto the truth that I am a royal warrior. That’s going to stick with me for a while. Thanks for the love…grace to you as you are there for your friends and family <3333

  8. This was so beautiful and vulnerable. Thank you for sharing it. I can relate on so many levels.
