I am a working homeschool mom just navigating in this life hopefully to inspire those around me. I am married to my best friend, Wayne, and I have three children as of now. I love just playing a card game, watch a movie, or just talking over dinner with my family. I lived in Georgia my whole life, until 2014, when we moved to Florida. Most of all, I desire to know and seek God; the father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Journey through Romans I
So here I am in my journey through the new Testament that my pastor asked us to do. I am in the book of Romans. I am asking the Lord to let me read the words as a story, but to infuse them into my heart. Three verses stuck out to me today:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
This verse is probably very familiar, but is great to remind us who is really on our side. It is so comforting to remember that Satan may want something for bad and the Lord will turn it to good. I love Him so as long as I call upon Him, His good will wash over me.
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:31-33
I just don't have to worry. My God is for me and loves me so much that He gave his only son up for me. Satan you have no grips on me!
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Halleluiah, Amen! Nothing can get in the way of our love with the Lord. Wow. Amazing words! Thank you Lord for your love. I pray that I will pour my heart out with the love and peace you have given to me. You, Lord, are my hero that guards my heart and gives me good things, even though it looks to be bad. I praise you, Lord. Bless those who read this, and bless those who are praying to have you right now. Enrich their lives and enlarge their territory. Bless those who are praying for our family. Lord I pray that you will bless then 10 times more.
