Update on TJ: at his last appoinment last Tuesday he was informed that the little bone that was fractured has reattached itself and is healing, there no surgery needed… Yaaaay!! We are praising God for healing just have 6 weeks of physical therapy to do.

Through different recent circumstances I’ve been asking God to reveal to me scriptures that have impacted us different times in our lives and that have lead us in the direction he would have us go. The cool thing about all of this is that God has begun to reveal scriptures to me.
I was recently reading a book called “Spiritual Discernment and the Mind of Christ”. One of the chapters was about the Holy Spirit and how he speaks. One of the ways he communicates is simply through the peace of God, you may know what I’m talking about, his peace that passes all understanding?

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:7

The Holy Spirit has given us strong yet settling peace when it’s time to do something and no peace when it’s not time. One of the scriptures shared in the book was

Colossians 3:15-17
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

After attending Bible school and going to Africa, getting married and THEN spending 4 years investing in a church, then God gave us the peace, this supernatural peace to Finally GO!  It was God’s timing and he let us know, He has done this time after time!!
One of the other passages that God brought to my attention was in Lamentations. God is faithful, Down to the depths, and up through the heights, he is faithful. Through the death of our daughter up to the moment our pastor at sovereign grace church in Florida announced to us in front of the congregation that they we’re going to be our sending church, God has been faithful, and he will never change. I love that he will never fail us and that we can always hope in him. I love that his mercies are new every morning.

Lamentations 3:19-25
“I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;”

God is good to encourage us, he is good to lead us with his peace, he is good to speak to us, and we trust Him on this journey!
