The Soft Shell Turtle

  A couple of days ago I found this soft shell turtle while walking. This turtle was so very tired.       Today while walking I found these eggs that have been devoured and found a piece of shell away from the other eggs.       It looks like one may have been spared. I’m guessing raccoons found them.       God will leave the 99 and go to the one. Maybe He sent me to help this one? I covered the one remaining egg just in case it’s God plan for this one to thrive. It …

Where Does My Strength Come From?

Some days I wonder. Humility is looking back on my life and realizing God was there all along. God is closer than your next breath. God knows the sound of my cry and has always been there to pick me up when I fall. When I am weak, He is strong. There’s security in knowing the one true God.

What Are We Holding Onto

We will all leave this world as we came in; with nothing. No money, no clothes, cars, etc. Only one thing survives in this world. Our souls.

Cornerstone

  Unmoved by anything. This is my God. As a Christian, we should model this. No matter what life throws at us, we need to carry on. God, who has always been, is our Creator, our rock, our foundation for life. The cornerstone is laid first at the head corner and governs every other corner and every angle in the entire building and thus determines the place every other stone is to be laid. What is your foundation made of? Psalm 18:31 – “For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?” Dianne Petrey
