He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
Psalm 40:2

I would not be where I am today if not for my ROCK, Jesus Christ. He truly can bring you from the depths and set your feet upon a rock-HIM!

He has done it for me. He is what gets me through. Thank you Jesus.

:) God WILL be with us and He WILL give us strength. It is His promise.

Friday, March 11, 2011

Praying, praying, and praying. So much is going on in the world, we are not promised tomorrow, BUT Christ is our only hope and constant.

So, we gather up the pieces, trudge on, and keep putting our faith in JESUS CHRIST, who is in complete control. He knows, He cares. Thank you.

"Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday, and today, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8.

 Here is some bible prophecy for you:

10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
 11And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
 12But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
 17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
 25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
 26Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Luke 21:10-12, 16-17, 20, 25-28 

"He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus."
Rev. 22:20

NO ONE knows when Jesus Christ is coming back, but we do know for sure HE WILL. Are you READY? Have you trusted Christ as your Saviour? Is He Lord of your life? Do you believe He died and shed His blood on the cross for you? Are you willing to live and die for Him? Have you given Him everything?

He is the only thing that will get you through life. Read the bible everyday, pray, and find a bible believing church. Let Him change your life. He loves you. I don't deserve it, but He does! Make your decision today......

"Each life has its share of disappointments--those dark moments when something you were counting on fails to materialize or when someone you believe in lets you down. When you are struggling with uncertainty that people and plans bringto your life, it is a great comfort to know that God will never fail you and that every plan he sets in place will prosper.

As you travel through the dark places on your journey through life, that old bandit disappointment may jump from the shadows and challenge you, threatening to rob you of your dreams. But disappointment cannot take what is yours as long as you rememmber that you are a child of God. With God on your side, your future is secure and settled in heaven."

welp. Kind of a weird word. I find I type it when I'm not sure what to type. :)

Welp, we are traveling down the road God has led us----adopting a little girl from Ethiopia.

Please pray that God would protect, comfort, and love our little girl as she waits for us to hold her in our arms. Please pray for us as we trudge through paperwork and wait.

Please pray for our kids, A & J as they adjust to the changes in our family and Matt and I traveling 2 times to Ethiopia.

If you would like to help bring our little daughter home, you can give to this link lifesongfororphans.org/donation.html and under PURPOSE type "sauder #1796". It is greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless you.

#3 of 4 homestudy visits is scheduled for Monday. Another step!
