a beautiful life ministry

Thank You affirmations:

That God is with me wherever I am,

That He will not let me go, let me down or give up on me.

That He is working on my behalf and

He really does see my tears and heartaches.


I was touched by a dear woman who shared her story of finding a lovely 20-year-old daughter after years of misfortune with infertility, it especially touches my heart as I also never had children of my own and truly understand the heartaches that those times can cause a woman to feel.

   I know those affirmations sound simple but in my reality they are really big in my life right now.

I am resting and waiting on God, my Heavenly Father, to reveal His will and the next step I should take. It seems it should become easier after so many years, to wait and rest more patiently on Him because He has always been there looking out for me, and many are the times that events turn out so much different than I could ever have imagine!

But even after all these years I am guilty of the human condition of lacking confidence and thinking I have to be perfect and get everything right.

 but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NRSVCE)  So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.


This Bible verse empowers me with passion for my Lord Jesus!

Thank You God, my Heavenly Father, for being so patient with me and for loving me enough to send Your Son Jesus and these amazing people such as those that are touching my life in real life & online through prayer groups, Bible Studies, blog posts and comments. As I journey through my earthly life to my heavenly home!

 Please consider leaving a comment:  how is God present with you in your earthly journey right where you are today?
