The 52 Week Challenge –Week 3


There are days when I just don’t feel like it – the battling, the trying, the anxiousness, the fear…. Days when the staying in bed is easier than the getting up, when the staying at home is easier than the going to work, the giving up is easier than the carrying on. But, what God teaches us in the commitment, in the perseverance, in the “hanging in there” is that we trust Him no matter how we feel. On the day that I don’t feel like it, I can do it because God has called me to honour Him in all that I do. On the days when it is easier to stay in bed, I go to work because this is God’s plan for my life. On the days when I feel like quitting, I hang in there, because God has called me to finish this race.

Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole


Last night I lay in bed and I could not sleep.  I was warm and snug and felt safe, so I didn’t want to particularly get out of bed or anything, but as I lay there, I thought of Abigail’s post from yesterday. And I said, in response to her post, how I am so… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole

Pure Passion :: From Holding Back to Running Free {#purepassion}


But, I’m starting to hear more loudly the other side of the doubts.  I’m coming alive to the amazing possibilities of the abundant life Jesus promises in John 10:10.  It’s a verse that has often been misconstrued to mean something totally different than what Jesus intended.He meant us to be in Him and His Gospel in… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Holding Back to Running Free {#purepassion}

Pure Passion :: From Duty to Beauty {Sex in Marriage}


Isn’t it sad how sex can become a duty in our lives?  Perhaps for men too, but more for women.  I think this is another attack from Satan – destroy in women what men crave the most.  And what happens?  Marriages suffer. In today’s post, Abigail Alleman, found her beauty again. You see, the whole sex,… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Duty to Beauty {Sex in Marriage}

Pure Passion :: From Hurt to Healing {when you’ve been abused}


God heals.  He is our great healer.  It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through in life, or where you are now, what matters is that God knows – and He loves you and He will heal you.  He loves you.  Whether you’re a Christian or not, we all need healing in our lives and we… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Hurt to Healing {when you’ve been abused}

Intimacy in Marriage – and how important it is!


I have felt a bit despondent and very frustrated lately.  And I know the reason – because, besides from being doggone tired, hubby seems to have lost all interest in our intimacy.  And I can only say I blame myself.  And I think that the most frustrating thing for him is that he knows that… Continue reading Intimacy in Marriage – and how important it is!

Does God Make a Difference


In my last post, Crossing the Great Divide, I posted about how God led me to blogs about marriage, when I was looking for blogs on anxiety.  And in all of those blogs, I have realized it is how you think about something – or what you think about a thing that truly counts.  You may not… Continue reading Does God Make a Difference
