  1. Kaitlyn,
    What beautiful and TRUE scripture to quote. I find when I claim God’s promises out loud, it helps His TRUTH to resonate with my soul. I am so thankful He goes before us; He comes behind us; He hems us in with His ever present self. One of my favorite words in the Bible is lovingkindness. When I type it, spell check always want to correct it into two words, but God says that He is compassionate, slow to anger, and filled with lovingkindness. I cling to the Truth that God cannot deny himself. He IS love and therefore He always acts in loving ways toward us. I love this quote from “The Greatest Gift” by Ann Voskamp: “We are not spared of all trials, but we are spared of the trials that have no gifts.” I can honestly say that every trial and crucible I’ve been through has ultimately carried with it, a gift. God is an expert at bringing beauty from ashes. Praying for you Kaitlyn for a year filled with health, wholeness, and a deep sense of God’s presence before you, behind you, and holding onto your hand as He walks with you.

  2. Kaitlyn,

    This is great wisdom to start each day with the truth of God. I need to instill God’s truth into me daily. We all do. We never know what to expect around the corner. Thankfully God is there mentoring us on this journey. He gives us clouds & sunshine in daytime & then fire & moonlight at night. When life throws curve balls at you & it will we can rest assured that He is there giving us hope. Each trial comes with a special gift wrapped in His loving goodness. God is & always has been here for us, No matter the time or place. He foreknew all that is happening to us. We can take heart in the promises of God. We can stand strong & courageous for He is with us never leaving or forsaking us. He is great at making beauty from ashes. Praying for all in 2019. May you be healthy, happy & grow spiritually. Be richly blessed.

    Blessings 🙂
