If you want strong, healthy kids consider feeding them more than just organic, healthy food. Consider feeding them the Word of God. 

He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds. (Psalm 107:20, 21 NIV)

We have started memorizing 2 scriptures a week with the kids as a family and keeping a journal of what they've learned. We have their scripture on the fridge, on the mirror in chalk pen and on the dining room table to chat about during dinner time. Why? Because this WORD will be life to their bones and a lifeline in the very darkest times of trouble that we all know life does bring. I want my kids to be equipped to WIN because they know who they are in Christ Jesus!

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.  -C. S. Lewis

Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. Isaiah 64:4 NIV

Who Will You Choose?

What perfect timing it is for such controversial matters to pop up in Hollywood. ‪#‎sarcasm‬ I'm not going to state my opinion on this matter because all I have to say in regards to it all is this -- there is a very strong pull to get our attention off of Christ and onto things of this world. Are you going to get caught up in the controversy or are you going to keep your Christmas holy? Are you going to focus on the power of God who came to earth in the form of man to save us or let Hollywood dictate your thoughts? I for one choose JESUS!

God recently checked my heart about what I do as the very first thing in the morning. He wants the first fruits of everything in our lives including and especially our days. If the first thing we do is grab our phones and check Facebook, we can't be surprised to have a day that looks hectic - kind of like a Facebook feed. But if we take some time to sit down with our Heavenly Father and talk to him and worship him then he will take what was going to be crazy and hectic and bless it and make it holy.

Now thank God for his mercy because His grace is sufficient to cover our need to grab a cup of caffein before we sit down to His word. Haha!

For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. (Romans 11:16 NKJV)

It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, proclaiming your love IN THE MORNING and your faithfulness at night, (Psalm 92:1, 2 NIV)

A Holy Christmas

If you look for the holy in Christmas you will find it among the hectic, the hurried, the stressed and the strained. You will find peace and simplicity, grace and a Savior who always is and always was and always will be waiting for you to welcome Him into your Christmas. And when our Christmas is truly filled with Christ and not just "cliche Christ filled", it's THEN we will truly experience the majestic hallowed moments, the blessed moment of what truly came to pass the night our Savior came into this world. I can only imagine that all Heaven sang when his first cries rang out, A SAVIOR! Christ The Lord! The power of the cross began with the power of the manger. Let's find the holy in Christmas together this year.

I read a line today “What was intended to tear you apart, God intends it to set you apart.
What has torn you, God makes a thin place to see glory.” -Ann Voskamp 

Oh I love that! So true!! We all have had deep hurts in our lives that seem a
t times too much to carry, but God never meant for us to carry them because he sent his Son to carry our burdens for us. And those delicate places in our hearts that we are left with that feel so fragile, should not necessarily be looked at like scars but as little places for God's infinite mercy and grace to shine through our lives. In our greatest trials He demonstrates his greatest miracles. Through our deepest heartache he wraps us in his never ending love that our earthly minds cannot begin to comprehend. In our greatest disappointment Jesus stands at the open tomb and says, I am your greatest victory!
Don't over bandage and cover up what what feels like a scar or injury in your heart that is actually His glory trying to shine through.
