Stand Through the Trials

I would like to share with you my testimony of the strength of Love. My husband and I have both been married before. Nobody said it would be easy. In fact the odds were against us. We both have kids from previous marriages. And the ‘fun’ with the ex’s – yeah right. Yet in spite of everything God was and still is faithful. He has given us strength to overcome all the trials that were thrown our way these past 8 years. There would have been many times where it would have just been easier to walk away. We have lived through both of our moms passing away – in the same year. We have had 3 cars get smashed or just plain ‘die’. Both of our dads have made it through major surgeries this past year – thank you Jesus! I lost track of how many times we have moved. Then there was the leg break and losing work for the last 3 years. But God is faithful. He held us up when we couldn’t hold on any longer. God provided for all of our needs. Our families helped and we stuck together despite it all. And God never left. He was right there beside us through all of it. Our family is stronger these days, and so is our love.

Perhaps this is your season of testing. Stand strong my friends. God is with you and sticks closer than a brother. He will provide a way when there seems to be no way. He will sing songs of deliverance over you. God will shine light into your darkness and lead you out of the valley of despair. Your story is NOT over yet!

Come on in. Welcome to my family and our home. Come on into our lives and watch and see what God can do! These pics are from our lives in the past 8 years, along with a few from Pinterest. Life is good, and God is great!

 

 

STAND

VERSE 1
When the money’s gone and the bills come in
When the sky turns black and it’s thundering
When it seems the only answer is to walk away
We’re gonna forgive them anyway

 

CHORUS
We’re gonna get through this
Hope is born in the middle of the storm
We’re gonna get through this
Dig down deep and take my hand
Only together, we stand

 

VERSE 2
When the work is long and the pay is slow
When our hair turns gray cause we’re getting old
When the kids move out to find their way
We’re gonna love our life anyway

REPEAT CHORUS

 

BRIDGE
God is our light in these waves
Hope is our Anchor, we’ll stay

 

REPEAT CHORUS

Where I Am Right Now – Jared Anderson Song

I love how the new songs in Christian Music are so honest. I am so weary of the music that feeds the flesh. I don’t want to shout at God. My worship is not going to be just jumping around and clapping. Yes, that is fun, but I want to get beyond that.

It’s kind of like a relationship. You start out slow, laugh, talk, go to a movie together or out to dinner. But real intimacy doesn’t happen in the beginning.  Sharing our shortcomings doesn’t happen on the first date.

As I learn more and more about who God is, I hunger for more. I want Him to tell me secret things.  He said He would. What does He like? What does He do with his spare time? How does he take care of all those kids? Can He help me with mine? I need His wisdom here in life. And I want to share things with Him. I want to confess how much I need him in my everyday life.  This new song by Jared touched my heart – it is so honest.

From Centricity Music:

“The title track delivers a powerful message of being content of where we are at the moment. I’m called to be where I am right now/In the middle of a storm but I have no doubt/You are here with me/You are here with me/I won’t give in or second guess/I’m trusting you with every step/Father you are here with me.”
