this is robin....

It has been great being home. The weather has been beautiful and trying to get back in the swing of things has been good. I am back at work and I am loving teaching and being back in the classroom. What a journey God has called us to walk. I cannot even tell you how many different thoughts cross through my mind on any given day. It has become very apparent what the Lord meant by taking every thought captive and making it obedient to Christ. I told George yesterday that the Lord laid on my heart for George to begin claiming the heritage he has for longevity. His maternal great-grandparents both lived to be 103 years old and celebrated 85 or more years of marrige. What a heritage!!!! Our Father is so real to me in every since of the word. He has held me, He has comforted me, He has encouraged me, He has rebuked me, and He has shown me that He is right in the middle of this journey with us.

I have shared with many of you that one of the biggest things that I have learned thus far is that God's grace and strength is only found in TODAY. DUHHHH!!!!!! It's not like I haven't read that a thousand times in the word, Jesus saying not to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow has enough worries of its own. At the very beginning of all of this God told me that He would give George and I strength and grace for the day we were in and that if I began to think about next week, next month etc. I would find myself overwhelmed. How true that is. I haven't allowed myself to many times to think beyond today because the few times I have tired I have found myself in over my head. But how faithful our Father is because the purposes He has for TODAY and the strength He has for TODAY, and the grace He has for TODAY is ENOUGH.

Be blessed my friends and keep your eyes firmly fixed on the Author and Finisher of our faith.

It was so good to hear from you not that I am tired of hearing from George but just to let you know that you have blessed me as well in the words you have sent out. You are mighty warrior and if something every happens to me I hope you can be my nurse. You have nursed your husband back to life and I know that without a doubt your Heavenly Father is very proud of you for keeping the faith even when you were down. Girl you have many crowns in heaven. I always admired your worship but now I admired your walk with Him. You are a true blessing from the Lord and I am so honored to have such a faithful prayer warrior in my life. Love you Gayle

"All we can do now is pray." The forces of heaven are dispersed when one prays. The very power that raised my Lord Jesus from the dead is there for your own needs and mine.
Thank you that when you bow in prayer, your Son intercedes on your behalf. In His purity He brings all your requests before Him. Give me right motives as I pray. Give me faith to release my prayer and to entrust them to Your keeping. Remind me often, Lord, that prayer can move mountains and change hearts. Father, you know all of our desires. Thank you in advance for answers that will come according to Your will. Only You know what is best. Amen and Amen

Pray for Jonah as he is still not taking in much liquid and running fever...he is also very weak.
It was good to hear you on the blog Robin and I enjoyed our conversation the other night...
