I’ve always read my Bible pretty consistently (like, since I was a kid), but I never felt like I was understanding it. A lot of times, I would read a chapter of the Bible and it would all go into my brain and right back out. It was frustrating! And of course, it still happens sometimes, but I think I’ve found a method that works for me. Continue reading
When trying to conceive, you should definitely be praying that God’s will be done and that you will have a child in His timing. However, even while praying, it can become frustrating and worrisome each time that you are not pregnant. It requires a lot of patience and faith. These are some verses that I prayed over while trying to get pregnant and verses that provided comfort in my waiting. I hope they are helpful to you! Continue reading
Mrs. Rockefeller is baaaack!
And with some amazing news.
I haven’t been blogging for quite a while because things have been crazy!
Mr. Rockefeller graduated from the academy on August 25th. Since then, he’s been doing his dream job in our area, but we knew that a move was inevitable. We loved being near both of our families and we didn’t want to move, but we want to follow God’s plan for our lives, so we decided to take the move on with a positive attitude. Mr. Rockefeller has to work wherever there are openings, which means Long Island for a couple of years.
We didn’t know where or when we would be moving for sure until the beginning of November and it turned out that we needed to be moved to Long Island by November 30th! Actually, we’ve been living here for a week and there’s a small possibility that we could get a different location on December 20th and have to move again! (We’d love a location closer to home, but another move would be crazy all over again.) Continue reading
I’ve been listening to Chip Ingram’s sermons lately. They’re awesome! (I highly recommend downloading the Chip Ingram app.)
The other day, I heard a sermon on slandering and gossiping about people. Chip said that you slander someone any time you talk about him and the person you’re talking to thinks less of him after your conversation than before it. Continue reading
I’m sure that you’ve heard about all of the heartbreaking natural disasters occurring lately.
I hope that they don’t make you ask where God is. Because He’s here and He’s working. He doesn’t want to see us suffer. He doesn’t want bad things to happen (which happen because humans are sinners- see this post for more on that), but He’s using the tragedies to teach lessons and to turn hearts toward him.
I hope that you are realizing your mortality and that tomorrow is not promised.
I hope that you see that you can’t endure the hardships of this world without God. Continue reading
I’ve been struggling for a while with my attitude toward certain people. I haven’t felt like helping people who aren’t trying to get out of their situations on their own. Which was probably a result of the work that I do as a home visitor, but it also made my job more difficult. I wasn’t putting all of my effort in for my clients when I didn’t feel like they were thankful and they weren’t helping themselves. Continue reading
