Destiny

2 Mar

Dont ask me why, but ever since I was a little girl I knew, deep down, that I would be a Pastor’s wife one day. I dont know if this was because I was around one- my Grandma- so much, or just because something inside of me knew that was my destiny… or calling. I also remember thinking the whole time while George and I were dating that he would be a Pastor. Now, I am not saying that I would, or could, not be happy not being a Pastors wife, or not having a husband as a Pastor, but I just believed these things early on. And I know that being a Pastor, or Pastor’s wife, may not be of importance to some, but to me, it is! I am tearing up writing this because as I sit here, I now am, I am a Pastor’s wife. My husband is a Pastor. WOW!!

What a big responsibility we have now. Not that we didnt before…. but now… it’s intensified!

I am greatful for where God has planted us for this season and cannot wait to see what He has in store for us!!

God is Smiling

16 Feb

I have been thinking about the blessings that God has provided my family and I with, not only recently, but during my lifetime, and today, I just cant get the feeling of God smiling down on us, off of my mind. Have you ever felt like this? Have you ever sat down and felt as if the God that created you and me, was happy and pleased and smiling down at you? We all face difficult times, times when you can’t seem to get a break, everything seems to be crashing down around you and you can’t do anything about it… days when you wish that you could just crawl underneath a rock and take a long nap and wake up and everything in your world be perfect. Well, in the course of me looking back on my short little life, I am now realizing, nothing is perfect, nothing is as it seems, and sometimes, you can’t change everything for the better…. but there is ALWAYS one constant: GOD!

And today, I believe that God is looking down smiling…. like he does every day, on everybody, but maybe because, in a time of struggle, and sadness, I took a moment, or God took a moment, to let me know that He still has my family in His hands, that we are not forgotten, and that He believes in us, in our ministry and in our future!

Have you taken the time today to feel the warmth of God’s presence around you and feel Him smiling down on you?

Questions On Belief…

16 Nov

I would say that I have been a Christian pretty much my whole life. Granted, I did not attend Church constantly, and even had the chance to experience almost every religion in America, but I would say that I was ALWAYS a Christian. My grandparents were a big part of my upbringing and my grandfather was a Church of God pastor so I look back and even when I was being taken from Church to Church, my fondest and most memorable memories were from my CoG days.

So, I am posing this question because I realize that some people have fallen away from their faith, a faith that they once would have stood upon NO MATTER WHAT!

If you accept God as your personal Savior, and become a Christian, but fall away from it… were you ever even truly saved at all??

I know that this may be deep for some but I believe that if you believe the whole Bible, and in a God that sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins, and you TRULY accepted these things, then you would not “backslide” or depart from those beliefs…. no matter what!!

No, I am NOT perfect and yes, I have, and will always have, faults but if I claim to be a Christian, shouldnt I be a Christian thru and thru… not swaying but staying firm with everything that is in me?!?!
