Pastor's Desk

This past week I was asked to come be witness at the swearing in of a Judge.

The Person that was sworn into office, is my prayer partner. I told him a little over a year ago that he could do so much from where God was getting him positioned for. He looked at me like I was crazy. Sometimes even I think I am …kinda, but time and time again God has shown Himself so very faithful to what he wants to do through us.

I knew and shared with him that he would do so much. Even if he thought he was limited in what was possible. With Christ so much more would and could happen.

Phillipians 4:13 
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

No matter what you are going through or where you are in this life.

WITH CHRIST YOU CAN DO SO MUCH MORE

A Little About The Easy Going Kirstin

A Little About The Easy Going Kirstin

I am a 25 year old SAHM to 2 wonderful little boys, J~ 8 years old and G~ almost 2. I couldn’t be happier in what I do here at home or on TwoGirls&SomeCoupons.

Kirstin to the rescue! I’m here to solve all your problems, well I can try at least. Well it may not be “Kirstin” that I hear, but instead “mommy.”

My family and I love to be in the outdoors. We also love taking day trips to State Parks to go fishing and have picnics. Anything that is inexpensive to do with our family of four, is where we will be.

I also try my best to help financially by couponing when I see a great deal. I will try my hardest to bring those to you also :)

 

Happy Hunting!!!

Making Choices!

 

Choices!  We all have to make them.  I worry about the BIG choices I have to make and run to God for his guidance  but what about the small choices?  I often leave God out!

God wants to be included in every choice we make.  The BIG, the small and even when we don’t choose at all.  He wants us to ask his advice, let him lead us.  I can not count the times I have ran to the store and bought something that I really did not need and if I would have just talked to God I could have saved myself a trip back to the store to return the item.

Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 

 

The Bible tells us if we will just acknowledge God he will help us.  My prayer for you this week is that you will seek God in all of your choices.  Let him lead you even in the small ones.   I think God would love to go couponing with you this week!

Do you Plan?

 

 

 

Are you a planner? Do you plan what you will wear, what  you’ll eat, and what you’ll do for the day. I tend to plan my day the night before right after my evening prayers. I never think twice about those plans, never wonder if they line up with what God has planned. Many, many times I get frustrated if my plans don’t go the way I planned.

While planning this week’s devotion I was led to Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.  How fitting it was for me.

Regardless of how many plans I make God’s plan will stand.  I’ve seen it time and time again, my plans go array and when I think back over the day I can see how God’s plan for my day did not agree with mine.   In the end God’s purpose stood.  My life would be so much easier if I seek God before making my plans.

My prayer for you this week is to let God lead you in your plans so that your plans do not go array.

 

 

A love Like No Other!

 

 

I was reading an email this week that really struck a chord in me and inspired me to write this for our Sunday post. It made me realize the depth of God’s love for us and I really want to share it with you.

 

 

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8b (NLT)

 

God loves us so much that he collects our tears in a bottle and each tear is recorded in his book.  I know my Hubby loves me but he does not count my tears nor does he record them in a book.   We all need to be reminded from time to time just how deep God’s love is for us and that there is NO OTHER love as great or unconditional.

When people disappoint or hurt me it is comforting to know that I can take that to God, that he counts my tears as they fall and loves me through it all.  No matter where we are in life God is right there.  My prayer for you this week is to realize how important you are to God and know how deep his love is for you.   Take time and think on the scripture and feel God’s love today.
