Words of encouragement for Mother’s Day.

Mothers are the sunshine that appears between the clouds of sadness. A mother’s guilt is built; God’s forgiveness tears it down. Mothers enjoy each season when seasoned with God’s promises. Worrying robs a mother’s sleep; trusting God robs their anxiety. Let go of your children’s future, for in God’s hands is each of their tomorrows. Our children’s disappointments are the way God redirects their paths. Their failures are often ways that God molds their character. God’s wisdom helps moms determine the difference between rescuing and enabling. Be grateful for their setbacks as God is setting up something great for them. When faith replaces fear, joy comes back. A mother’s tears of pain stir God’s heart. Her tears of thanks make Him smile. Happy Mother’s Day!

What's New

Do you own Bitcoins?

That was the question that sparked my curiosity. And when I looked into it, I regretted not investing in them.

Not sure if it’s true but those who invested even $100 years back are now seeing millions in return. Wow! How could a currency increase with so much value?

Who knows? But more important than striving for our possessions to increase, is to question how can we, ourselves gain value? How can our worth increase?

The answer is simple; our life’s value increases each time we surrender to God’s will. We leave behind worthless notions of despair, discouragement and disappointment. Leaving aside our own will, we let His will prevail, increasing our worth, enriching our value, and multiplying our blessings.

Will you invest in the ever-increasing power of God’s promises?

Time for the next book.

My agent and I spoke recently and he liked the idea of my next book. I’ll be writing on how one can live with success in the midst of pain. How one can enjoy peace in the midst of chaos. And how one can find joy when the journey is dark.

But if you have any other ideas to add, there's still time to send them in. Better yet, what would you like to read in a book? Any suggestions? Any ideas? Any questions you need answered? Send your comments HERE.

Have you reached rock bottom?

Here’s a quote that spoke to me: “Sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom so that you will discover He is the Rock at the bottom.” Tony Evans

Oh, how that was meant for me. Years ago, I sunk at the bottom of the puddle of pain. Then I found Jesus extending His hand to me. He lifted me up. He scrubbed the spots of pain. And placed me in a shelter with a fresh beginning.
