Lies Women Believe Intro


I am participating in the above online study at Bible Cafe for Women.  I've participated in online studies before but not in this format.  Seems that the way this study is done is through responding to posted questions on their site in forms of a comment.  I will be using my site for book notes, personal observations and for following the book-related study guide.  Prayerfully, looking forward to this study and all that God will reveal.

Loss

Feeling confused and a little lost.

Once again considering what a true friendship may cost.



Wasn’t expecting the anger or the shut-out.

Though God is my anchor ;  there remains a bit of doubt.



'I will always accept.

My love for you is secure.

I am your given.

A safe place to endure.'



'Nothing you can say, do, or expose

Will cause me to walk away.

Words that no one other than God

Should really say.'



We, as humans, are weak and frail.

Can’t be counted on 100% to never fail.



Broken promises.

Unkind words said.

A “forever relationship”

Now seems as nothing but dead.



Tears of grief, wrapped in anger, hurt, and loss.

But knowing that God redeemed ALL at the cross.



I may not know the answers to all of His ways.

But I will love and obey Him no matter what every day.



I will never regret those who have been a piece of my heart.

I will hold on to the wisdom, God through each, did impart.



Though I may never understand where relationships are bound.

I know, with certainty, where REAL LOVE can be found.

Happy New Year!

A new year. 
A fresh start. 
Beginning again. 

A date that signifies hope.
Hope for reformation.
Hope for restoration.

A date that signifies remembrance.
Regrets, relinquisment, rejoicing.
Thankful that because of God,
each day is a fresh start.
His mercies are new every morning.
Thankful that because of God, 
restoration is possible.
Thankful that transformation is made possible 
with each new day.
Praying that these TRUTHS will remain in my heart 
and on my mind
for each and every day of 2012.
