A Genesis Moment

In the beginning, God created...

It's interesting to me how this blog has come to be. God, in His perfect timing, has orchestrated it's birth. He is the Origin and the Designer.

Psalm 127:1 says, "Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain..."

This is a gift from God to me, but it's also my desire to use the gift of writing He has given me as my gift to Him. It is my longing that this be a sacred place of surrender. A quiet refuge where His Word is pondered and treasured. I pray that my thoughts will not just be words on a page, but encouragement, comfort, a soothing balm, a refreshing oasis to any fellow traveller who sojourns here. I pray they not be "my words", but God's thoughts impressed to me as I commune with Him.

I sense God calling me to share here often - not so much about my life, but His life. Truths from His Word as He reveals Himself to me each morning as I sit as His feet and learn from Him.

I trust you will visit often. You are always welcome and there's always room for one more.

Lord, I pray You will meet us here.

Joy,
I am praying that this blog will be a blessing for you and for all who stop by.

I will stop by often. My heart is more than hungry for His word lately.

Mat 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Even facing the giants in my life... with God, it is possible to face them down.
