a quick update…

Hey friends…

As you can tell, the blog is undergoing a make-over with a few more additions to come over the next few days. I will also be switching the domain address to a dot.com address and will keep you posted as details arrive. I can’t wait to tell you about the fabulous designers!

On another note, I wanted to let you know the winner of the Bebo Norman CD: #16 LauraLee Shaw from Selah, Pause, and Ponder. Congrats LauraLee!

A final thought for your Wednesday:

“My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight;
they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.
Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble;
when you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your feet from being snared.” (Proverbs 3:21-26).

Whatever you have to do today to preserve sound judgment and discernment, do it. Wrap them around your neck; do not let them out of your sight. We live in a fallen world, and the enemy’s prowl has never been more vicious; more vigilant; more firm and more diligent.

But neither has our God’s. He, too, is on the prowl (from a higher and better vantage point). His vigilance and diligence on our behalf exceed the enemy’s attempts at the same. The LORD, our confidence, comes behind us and goes before us. Our responsibility, today, is to secure ourselves firmly in between these sacred Bookends.

Do not let your confidence slip; instead, fix your eyes on Confidence and find God’s peace. As always…

peace for the journey,

  1. Thanks for the sharing today and I love the new look!

    Hey pass the info on the dot.com if it's letting go of the blogspot.com and owning your own blog.

    Love you friend.

    Peace!

  2. It's looking beautiful so far! I can't wait until it's all finished – I can tell that it will be gorgeous!:)

  3. I love the new look! It's beautiful! I needed to read this post and I'm going to keep it up on my computer to read again and again. I almost let the enemy steal my confidence today. Thank goodness for the comfort that comes from His word and for peace. Love ya!

  4. I love the new design Elaine. Very nice. As always I love your food for thought.

    Blessings and Hugs,
    Marita

  5. Amen! I'm copying the verse (and thoughts below it) and sending them to my boys. A great reminder!

    Love you,
    Beth

  6. I love this!! Too cute!! And those babies are just precious! (Shh!! Don't tell them that I called them babies!!)

    Wonderful words and scripture, my friend! Started my Precepts Bible Study back today–am so loving this!! Back to Isaiah, and so many of His Truths. Talk to you soon!

    Hugs,
    Susan

  7. I needed to hear those words about sound judgment and discernment. Just a few minutes ago I began typing a letter that I thought should go out and everything in me [i.e. the H.S.?? perhaps] said to "wait and let God deal with it". So I put it in a holding file. The enemy wants to stir up trouble and God is saying "let ME handle your troubles."

    I ABSOLUTLY LOVE the new makeover. And yes – pass on the info about the dot.com switch. We all put so much work into these blogs – it would be nice to own them!!
