Spiritual Zingers

This post is mainly for my memory. Just some wonderful ways that God is showing His goodness and reminding that in these times of waiting that He is my provider.

Lately I have been so weary and my perspective has been driven by fear and worry. But last night I awoke out of a sound sleep and was suddenly aware of how easy it was to breathe. It just came over me what an amazing blessing it is to easily take in air to my lungs. And then I heard my 2 babies that God gave to ME breathing beside me. I believe that this was God's affirmation to me that He is taking care of me. All I need right now is to breathe and love my kids. He has the rest. Now surely being human I will worry tomorrow but now I have this memory in my mind forever. He is SO faithful!

The kids attend a childrens worship at our church called Power Kids. They come home singing the songs of course but lately they have been coming home with words that have  clearly made an impression on them. It's not just the Bible stories although those are certainly convicting. But it is the deep truths that have been planted by their teachers.

Carso told me the other day, "Mommy if your heart is broken, Jesus will give you a new one."

Kate told me, "Mommy you can talk to God Anytime you want to."

"Mommy, Jesus lives inside of my heart and he loves me!"

And this exchange between Kate and I the other night took my breath away.

Kate: Mommy where do people go when they die?

Me: Well they go to heaven to be with God and Jesus

Kate: I want to die Mommy!

After I caught my breath I told her that she had many more things that she needed to do for God and Jesus on the earth before that would happen. But oh my!

Oh to have the faith of a child. Her one  thought immediately with out hesitation was "if God and Jesus are there, then that's where I want to be!"


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
