Don't Give Up

I was blessed (by a member of my monthly prayer group) with a copy of Joyce Myers' book "Battlefield of the Mind" and have begun reading it during my morning devotion time.  I am on Chapter 3 and the title is "Don't Give Up".  This is perfect for me when it comes to life in general.  When I get too overwhelmed or when life gets too hard, I want to GIVE UP! It is my way out, or so it seems.

The scripture that I am holding onto from this chapter is Isaiah 43:2 "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you." (NKJ)

What encouragement that no matter what live brings, God is with me!  He will not let me drown or get burned.  This is encouragement for me. I am trying to lean on God's Word more so that I can take control of what my mind wants me to do!  My mind is my battlefield and I am confident that with God's Word, I am more than a conqueror!  The victory has already been won!  Christ has defeated the enemy and I have the power of Christ in me!  Praise the Lord!

New Mini Tote

Hello all! I know it's been a LONG time since I've been here and I've missed you.  I am happy to announce that I sewed a new project I found in my bloggy search.  You can check it out here:

This little baby is 7 inches tall, 6 inches at the top and 8 1/4 inches at the bottom.  The wristlet is 5 inches.  I have many more cut out and will be sewing all week since my big boys are away at camp.

They are available for purchase for $12.50.

Thank you for coming by to visit!
