Steadfast

As I catch up on all my reads of my favourite blogs I was noticing a trend. God is really doing a work in some women's lives. He is in mine.

Praises are on my lips for him.

This weekend has held lawnmowers breaking, car not starting, a flat tire (2nd one in 2 weeks), lack of funds...

But you know what. I still praise him.

He is faithful. He has provided every time. There was always some one there to help.

A sweet moment from this weekend. As we are changing the tire in the pouring rain, running late for a very important meeting.. I heard my husband singing a worship song. My heart just swelled. Because that's what its about, things may not go the way we think they should but I will still praise God! He has a plan. I will praise him in every circumstance!


1 Thessalonians "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."

Really think about what this scripture is saying. All circumstance are his will? That's a hard thing to swallow.

Losing our Hope was his will? Yes. I don't know why. But I know there is a reason. I'm a different, better person because of her. Lives have been touched by her. God has moved in women's hearts because of our story.

I will praise him.

He does NOT waste our pain. It will work out to give him Glory!

I don't know what God is up to, I don't know what tomorrow holds... But I stand steadfast in him...

1 Corinthians 15:58 "So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless."

  1. Sorry about the trouble over the weekend with car, tire and lawnmower!
    When something breaks it seems it's like the mechanical flu! LOL! The dishwasher, the air condition, the refrigerator, coffee pot, on and on. But we praise Him it's not worse!
    Love you granddaughter !!

  2. Sweet post, Lauren! Reminds me of that Casting Crowns song "Praise You in the Storm." It is too easy to just praise and love God when everything is going great, and we often forget that we still need Him at those times. It is in the darkest hour when He carries us through that we truly learn to appreciate Him and His blessings. You suffered through life's hardest storm (losing a child), and you are an inspiration as you show the world that God can bring you through it and give you HOPE! What a wonderful name for your little miracle! :-)
