I’ve been reading (in)courage for at least 7-8 years and it’s blessed me countless times, and I often share it on social media or via text with close friends. This was a beautiful post and kind reminder, loved the visual about our lives on display and the hand of God being so evident. I have a life story like that too! It’s the looking ahead that is uncertain, but we know He is always with us. Bless you on your next adventure!

And now, your courage to move with God to the next chapter of your life is a great example to us of obedience and being led by the Spirit. We know God is leading all of us, and is certainly in the details! Your parting message is one that we need to reread over and over until it soaks down into our very soul. Thank you for all of your encouragement and may you be richly blessed as you follow God’s leading.

  10. Thank you, I needed this message at just this time! God is SO GOOD! Please would you keep my mama (Linda) and me in your prayers!

  11. Last year I had a day when I was extremely angry at someone. I knew I could not carry that anger around and all of a sudden I felt peace. I have felt that peace other times since then and I now realize it can only be the presence of the Holy Spirit bringing me to a calm place. Yes, since then, I have felt anger. I have felt a restlessness that upsets me. But then the Holy Spirit again brings me to a place of calm and peace; I am actually feeling that presence now. My life will never be perfect but I can take it a day at a time and know I will get through what I need to.

  12. Thank you for sharing the beginning. I am confident the Lord has someone to step into your place in this community. Connections are so needed. God bless your future in Christ!!!

  19. Because of your faithfulness, walking beside Jesus, I found this touch of daily encouragement from God. Living a bed-bound existence, comes with it’s daily challenges. Your faithfulness, pointing me always back to Jesus, has helped me thru each day! Thank you.

    As an 1980s Contemporary Christian Song says: “Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed!”

  20. Stephanie,

    Enjoyed your writing these pas 13 years. Life is full of ups & downs, twists & turns. We have to trust God every step of the way. December 2021 God blessed me changing my part-time job to full-time benefitted. I was excited working in ICU Covid unit & enjoying my job. Fast forward a year & the job has completely changed & I’m miserable. Knowing what God has done in the past is helpful as I await on a new direction from God.

    During times like these when I tend to get down I recount God’s faithfulness to me. I make a thankful list putting on everything from Home in Heaven to house to minor things nice weather & sunsets/sunrises. I also try to recollect the trials He has gotten me through. How He walked with me every step of the way.

    Blessings 🙂
