The Joy of the Lord is my Strength

I am in awe of our God this morning. I brought before Him my grief and dispair and whining and within seconds, I had tears of Joy streaming down my face. I've been longing to feel HIS Joy for a long time. Wow, Thank you, God!!!! You've blown me away this morning! To You be ALL Glory. How exciting to have something so positive to post. After all the complaining and depression on each post, I finally have nothing but good to say!!!! What an answer to prayer from my weary soul!

I hope I didn't offend you I was just saying that I really agree with James Mac and Dr. Al Mohler on the emerging church. I don't doubt their sincerity. =)

I am soo thankful God rescued me at such a young age though! If He would've waited any longer i would've been really screwed up even more!! haha.

So happy for your joy! I wish we could sit and have coffee together, don't you? So thankful for this blog though because even though I havn't seen you a several years, I still feel very connected. Remember when we met at mom's group? :) Seems like forever ago! Anyways, love you sister!

This is great, Rachel.
I caught up on your previous posts and am so glad to know the Lord has brought you to this point today.
In His presence there is JOY. And He has been present even when you were feeling like a failure...Keep your eyes fixed upon Him, my friend.
Love you,
Karen
