In visiting with a friend today, that has recently subscribed to this blog, I realized that many of you never go to the “Home” page of this blog. This is an Information Update for this site and hopefully you will understand a little better what to do, where to go for various things and how I put it all together to share with you.
When you get my email post, and you click the link in the email, you are taken directly to the post for the day and bypass the home page, which is a normal thing to happen. However, if you are new to the site, you may not realize some of the information I include on the Home page. So, here is the link to the Home page and then you can read the information about the various aspects of the whole site.
I started this blog before Easter 2014. It went online Thursday, the day before Good Friday. It has grown and been modified here and there along the way to be what you see today. There are many posts from before and you can search by category or name. Or you can just click on one of the pictures of the “Top Posts” listed on the left side and read it that way. I categorize each of my posts and you can search for “prayer”, “love”, “friendship”, etc. I have been blessed immeasurably by sharing this blog with you and at all times I pray you are blessed as well. If you ever have any trouble finding something you want or if there is a problem with the website, please, please let me know. You can click on the “Contact” form at the top of any page you are on. Leave me a message and I can then fix any problem or help you find something.
I have been in the process of a series about “Prayer” lately. God has me on this path for now and from time to time I deviate and post something relevant to the day or just re-post a favorite from before. Either way, you will get the message God wants me to share with you at the time He wants to share it. I pray about every post and every re-post. I listen for God’s guidance before I post anything. He is my Guide. For example, tonight I sat down to write my next post in the series about Prayer – which was going to be on Joseph – you know the one with the coat of many colors. So I began to study, research and read scripture to find a message in it for me to share. I kept getting side tracked and running down rabbit trails and down foxholes … until I stopped and just sat here thinking about the conversation I had this afternoon with my friend about my website. I had that all too familiar feeling that I needed to share something here. God speaks to me in the silence sometimes and sometimes He has to get a little louder with me… can any of you relate? He is so faithful! He always speaks to my heart and guides me.
So that is how I have always been with God and sharing messages and posts on this blog. I hear from God in a way that is hard to explain. He guides me as to what to type and share with you. He guides me in my picture selections and music and videos as well. So, it is a well rounded message that I try to bring to you from scripture, text, other articles sometimes, pictures, and music and videos. And always based on scripture, because I believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God.
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God[b] may be complete, equipped for every good work.
So, when this gal sits down to write something to share with you wonderful folks, it is done with great thought and a lot of prayer and ongoing conversation with God while I am writing. I love writing this blog. I love sharing God’s Word and how it has touched my heart and relates to my life in this day and time. All scripture can be relevant to our lives today. We just have to ask God to reveal what He wants us to know and ask Him for knowledge and wisdom. He will grant it! He has for me.
How I got my start is first listening to God’s Word on my phone via my Bible App. It’s free and oh so wonderful! It opened a whole new world for me. I have been around and read the Bible all my life but when I began to listen to the stories, it came to life! It was incredible. Then I began to share with a group of ladies, via email, some daily devotionals. That blossomed into the blog that you see today. God has been so faithful with His love for me and helping me put this blog site together and share with you almost every day. I look forward to each day to see what God is going to reveal to me that day to share with you.
So now you know the history and the rest of the story. I do love to share and I am glad you have chosen to read my blog. I do pray you are blessed each time you read. If you ever want to share, please scroll all the way down past the signature of the blog and you can post a comment. You can remain anonymous or not. Your choice.
Thank you again for taking the time to read my story. Check out my Bio page at the top also under the Hope page tab.
Always remember, God loves you and always calls you His beloved!
Below is a audio play list of some of my favorite songs (in no particular order) I have included in my posts along the way. They all carry a special message and one that was relevant to that particular post. Just click each one to listen. Enjoy!
