You Can Find Him Where You Are

God doesn't ask anything of us that He has not first prepared us for. There isn't anything He calls us to that He has not enabled us for. Everything that stands before us today has passed through the hand of God. That should give us hope. There is nothing that is too big for us with Jesus going before us. 

We allow fear to overshadow us. We let others tell us that we are never going to do it. Friends, don't quit! Don't give up. Don't allow Satan to steal away from you what God has prepared for you today. Do not compromise the truths of God for what this world tries to feed you. 

You are special. You are unique. You were created in love, with purpose and promise. Your life is one to be lived. Don't settle for less than anything God has for you. God knows what He's doing. All He is asking is that we seek Him with all our heart. When we seek Him we will never come up empty. He forever fills us with everything we need. He knows us better than anyone else. No, friend. Don't try and hide from the One who created you. Run to Him! As you seek Him your faith will grow as you see the evidence that He has been working in your life all along. 

Things may look really bad today. You may want to give up. I too have been there. But, with the grace of God, He brought me through and continues to show me the path He has created for me. Each day I learn more about myself through spending time with Him. Jesus saves! He changes us to look more like Him. He sets us apart. He pulls us out of the pit. Grace and mercy are for those who seek the Lord. 

No matter where you are today, you are sure to find Jesus there with you. You are never alone. Hope remains alive with every breath and every choice we make to move closer to Him. His Spirit lives in us! Walk in courage today and know that whatever is before you, your Lord, Jesus Christ, is there waiting. 

Don't fear what is to come. Don't be afraid to step into the unknown. There is nothing unknown to our Lord and Savior. He wants to move in you. He wants you to witness the glory before you. He wants you to move on His behalf. He has given all for us. He loves you as if you were His only child. Call upon Him today. Seek Him with everything you have. You will find His glory, great and small, mighty and tender. 

"For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." 
Ephesians 2:10

The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

I want to begin this review sharing two reviews I was blessed to do. The Butterfly and The Violinand A Sparrow in Terezin. For me these two novels were masterpieces. Works of such exquisite beauty. They showed that Kristy Cambron is gifted with the pen, a master storyteller. They remain two of my all-time top favorites. 
It was for this reason I was thrilled to be receiving a copy of The Illusionist's Apprentice. Once again Cambron shows us a masterpiece of bringing a story to readers that speaks of faith and our Lord. Although throughout the novel these aspects are not boldly proclaimed, but are masterfully weaved throughout the story. 
Magic and illusion are not the same. I love how she brings this truth. Love that the main character was an apprentice to the master of illusion. She takes the use of being an apprentice and walks that road with integrity and hope. When we choose to walk with Christ we are His apprentices. We are to walk as the main character, Wren Lockhart walked…

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…
