It is never over with God



Long story short. My husband passed away when my daughter was only eleven. They were very close and she was acting out a lot by age 14.

I  got to a point where I didn’t know what to do.

I prayed to God and He said, “Don’t discipline her. Just love Her.”

I was more that a little surprised and replied, “God but have you seen her behavior. This girl needs discipline.

Again He said, “Don’t discipline her. Just love her.”

So I listened to Him.

It was not easy, but I stopped trying to change her behavior and focused on being kind to her.

That gave room for God to get a hold of her.

He lead and guided her in ways I could not. It was not long before she gave her life to Jesus and started making positive changes.

Long story short, the kid who at one time in middle school spent weeks in the discipline office, spent the last year as Student Body President of her school. She was chosen by the Senior class to be the speaker at graduation, and is going on to collage to study law in hopes of being a Lawyer.

When God asks you to trust him, when you know it is God, then do it.

Do what He asks even if it is hard or doesn’t make sense.

He knows what He is doing!!!

I waited on God and WOW did He ever deliver!!!!!!! You have to see what He did


So for a while now I have been a bit like Noah, building my boat in the desert.

I believed God when He called me to England, even though I had no proof.  

So I started to build my Ark, to I step out and do the things that God called me to do.

I did all I could do, and then I did as the Scriptures say, I stood.

I stood and waited on the goodness of the Lord.

For a season I saw not a speck of rain, not a drop.

I stood, declaring God’s goodness over my life.

I stood amidst the laughter.

But I am not going to lie, I was starting to droop a bit. I was starting to make other plans.

And then it happened….

Out of nowhere I felt a drop of rain, more than a drop actually, many, many drops…5,000 actually.

Yesterday I received an anonymous Cashier’s Check for 5,000 dollars to go towards England.

Yes, you read that right, $5,000 dollars!!!!!!

I am praising God for His goodness!!!!! I am publicly thanking the sender of the check!!!

You are awesome and I believe that God will reach many people through your generosity.

The money is now safely tucked in a separate savings account waiting for the door to England to open up.

My heart is not about going to Europe but doing Gods will. And God is faithful to bring to fruition that which He wills.

So now I wait on God with renew hope. Knowing that it will happen. God is good!!!

If God has put it on your heart to give towards England I will include a link  below.

If you feel led to pray know that I covet your prayers.

May God bless you mightily as you seek and do what He has called you to do.

Know that I am praying for you to, that you may feel the rain.

Once may be a “coincidence,” two times may be “strange,” but three times…it’s definitely a “MIRACLE!”


Being in God’s will for my life is my number one priority, but providing for my family is right up there as well. But what I am realizing is that if I am in God’s will, no matter how much it looks like I made a wrong turn, then He will provide for all my needs.

Leaving my job did not endear my with my children, who although they believed that I knew God’s call, were a little afraid that it meant no food for them. I knew that if God was leading me that He would not let them go hungry.

So here is the miracle…get ready

ONLY three times, on three separate days, I have prayed for God to give me money for food since leaving my job.

(My prayers being, “God you promised to take care of me and my kids. Well we need food, and I am believing that you will provide it).

And right after each and every prayer I would get a phone call that lead to my working and earning the money I needed for food.

What are the odds? They are God odds….He is 100% faithful, 100% of the time!!!

When you step out and trust God in a huge way, it sometimes feels as if there is nothing under your feet that you are sure to crash and burn.

But when you keep your eyes on God, He will carry you through to where you need to be!!’

NEVER let fear stop you!

Trust Him and see how good He is!!!

I asked God for washcloths and He gave me this…


Back about fifteen years ago, I was constantly listening to Christian speakers, as God was changing my thinking and showing me how he could be trusted.

I remember one of the speakers talking about how God had told her to stay home from her job for a period of time. During that time she saw God work mightily through her prayers. One of the things she “needed” was new wash cloths. She prayed for them and God brought someone to her door with new washcloths.

Right after hearing that I prayed to God. I said that I wanted washcloths (notice here that I only “wanted” them, I did not “need” them). I asked Him to  send me washcloths.

Well later that day I was surprised to get a knocked on the door and was surprised to find Faith standing at my door.

Faith was a co-worker and fellow Christian. She held out a fairly large cardboard box. She said “God told me to give you this.” She handed the box to me and quickly left.

I brought the box inside and quickly opened it.

I was surprised and a little let down to find what was in the box.

I was surprised because the box was filled to the brim with washcloths, just like I had asked God for.

I was let down because the wash cloths were all old, wore out, discolored, and raggedy with holes in them.

And to top it off they were saturated with cigarette smoke.

I asked, “God I don’t understand, why did you give her new washcloths and you gave me these?”

God quickly replied, “Because you did not ask me for new ones, you just asked me for washcloths.”

 I learned that not only can I trust God to hear my prayers, but that He also pays attention to them.

As a result I because more thoughtful about what I prayed for.

How trusting God caused my world to come crashing in


This the update to my “A Christmas Miracle” blog post. For those that did not read it…basically God led me to have nothing prepared for Christmas for my family.

And to spend my money on other (needed) things and to trust Him to make it right.

Because I have four children (who are not so little anymore but still live at home), and because those children are used to getting spoiled at Christmas (even when I cannot afford it), this caused me great anxiety.

Every time I thought of how (potentially) my last Christmas with my children all under one roof would be an empty one, I began to feel like my world was crashing in around me.

But Faith

Yet I kept coming back to faith…simple, uncomplicated faith!

How could I trust Jesus to “save” me when I refused to trust Him to feed me. How could I trust him for all eternity when I could not trust him for one Christmas?

On my own I was shaky so I had to get back to solid ground.

I got out my Bible and read about how

The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him

[who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him]

will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.

(Romans 10:11 Amplified version).

I thought of all the people watching how all this “trusting God” business is going to play out… I realized that trusting God for Christmas is just a trial run for England and the rest of my future.

So I just allowed Him  the space He needed to show His goodness.

Any boy did He ever!

The Result

In the interest of brevity (something I am told is important in a blog post, and is something I am not very good at) I will just say that not only did God provide for every need we had (food, drink, etc) but He also took the focus off of the things and put it on our time together (not to mention Him).

As a result I spent two solid days hanging out with my family and talking and laughing…

We also went bowling…yes bowling. We are not big bowlers but we went on Christmas eve…at God’s leading…so much fun! And so many beautiful moments…like when I watched one child help another…so cool.

The Topper

And to top it off, God made sure there was a present for each of us under the tree…they were beyond awesome…mine made me cry because it is something I have wanted for a very long time.

There was a defining moment when we watched something on tv and one of the main characters said something like “people don’t often realize when they are living them, that one day these will be the moments that they wish they could re-live .”

Then it hit me

What gift God gave to me.

The Gift

The gift of foresight. How being able to drink in every second and really live in the moment with my beloved family.

In the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and daily living,  so many great moments often go unnoticed.  This gift of clarity has been a wake up call to me. I pray that I steward this gift well.

One Last Thing

He showed me that just as a bowling pins scatter, they are always made straight and set upright in the end…just like those who trust in Him.

Is your world crashing in around you? Trust in Gods good plan for your life and you will not be put to shame.
