Lately, I’ve been struggling with this thing called life. It has been pulling me down, wearing me out and I just can’t seem to get a handle on it. After a vacation you’d think I’d be refreshed and ready to roll again, but I’m simply not. As a planner and struggling to overcome perfectionist, I just keep plugging away and getting things done.
I struggle with real life friends, but God has blessed with blogging friends in countless numbers. The only difference is they can’t come over for coffee or catch a movie. Our fellowship is via the wonderful world of Facebook chat and Google hangouts. Have I mentioned how much I love this beauty of technology?

Starting today with fresh and new ambition coupled with the need for strength from on high. In God’s word is where you will find me digging…soaking up the truth inside…drawing strength from the well that never runs dry…basking in the grace God willingly provides…receiving love from the Author of love Himself.
It is in the Lord and His Word that we must place ourselves. When our strength is gone. When life becomes a struggle. When tears fall throughout the day. He is the only way out of the upside down mess you find yourself in. Begin by digging into God’s word to discover all that you are in Christ.
No matter where you are on your life journey, God’s word is where we should be each and every day. This is what will keep us at peace, strong and stable along the way, because we’ll be drawing closer to God Himself.
These are some of my favorite resources for studying God’s word
