When the Going Gets Tough

Have you ever felt like things just couldn’t get any worse… and then they do?!!!

I have been through times and seasons like that.

Foreclosure, bankruptcy, betrayal, no compassion, nobody willing to help, well, one person willing to help, and then she changed her mind.

Yeah, we went through all of that. And we had 8 kids, two of them nursing babies.

But God –

He knew our hearts. He knew our inward parts. HE knew that we were only doing our best to follow Him wherever He led us.

And He took care of us during our crazy, ridiculous, scary Journey of Fire across the US into parts unknown (to us) and back to parts we were sorta familiar with and established us for a time in a place where I could be built up in faith and trust in God’s love and intimate knowledge of me.

He spoke to me in ways that convinced me that I’m special in His sight, and I’m not just one of a big flock of sheep that is not even noticeable or important or significant. Even though I received messages from the everyday happenings that conveyed the exact opposite, whenever the Lord met me and spoke to me prophetically, He told me that I was special and well-loved, and that my efforts and my life were noticed and impactful.

Well, Shawn (my oldest son) and I lived through the same things and experienced the events according to our own unique ways of seeing things, but we learned many of the same lessons and concepts through the sufferings and trials.

Join us as we discuss the faithfulness of God and His sovereign works in our hearts and lives as we went through a long period of suffering and loss and tough times and came out with our faith stronger and purer and galvanized in a way that nothing else could have accomplished.
