If God is for us, who can be against us?

What a week this has been?  I haven't struggled like I've struggled this week in a very long time.  God has been dealing with me regarding my family for some time now, and it seems as though this week He has just really opened my eyes and is pushing me in directions that I've thought were impossible for me to do.  It seems as though I keep getting put into situations where He's saying "Christi, what do you see? I've told you what you need to do, now let's get busy making these things happen.  I am for you!"  Not only have I seen a glimpse of why, but God has brought people into my life to help show me the way. 

I also want to say that I have seen a side of my daughter, Brea, this week that I am so proud of.  She has shown me humility, passion, honesty, and strength.  I only wish I was half the woman that she is going to be.  She has shown me that the only constant we have in this life is Jesus, and no matter what, he is the one who will never leave us nor forsake us.  Brea I love you, and I'm so very proud of you!

Great thoughts!! Sounds like your daughter is very special. Isn't neat to when God uses our children to teach us more about him?!

Oh Sweet Christi..I have tears in my eyes as I write this! What a wonderful post! Thank you so very much for sharing such lovely sentiments. Enjoyed the video as well. I would so love to know who the artist is who's singing. Her lyrics went straight to my heart this morning..Right alongside your heartfelt words for Brea.

I've enjoyed my visit so much this morning. It's such a pleasure to getting to know you.

Blessings, Love & Thursday Sunshine, Terri

Thanks Christi! I love Kari Jobe and have never heard that song.

So beautiful... it ministered to my heart.

Thanks for following Ordinary Inspirations. Come back as often as you'd like.

Hang in there! In the words of Beth Moore (from a simulcast I attended yesterday) "Why is it that when we're in the middle of trials we don't stop and rejoice and say 'God is gonna use this'. Cause He is. He always does!"

Have you heard Unredeemed by Selah? You should listen to it. Soooo encouraging!
