I’ve been thinking a lot about scripture and how some verses just cling to your hearts. They pop up in your thoughts at given times.
When you are exhausted you can one think of one with strength.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
(Psalms 46:1-1, NIV)
When you are lost, one reminds you of direction.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
(Psalms 32:8, NIV)
When you are scared one reminds you to trust.
Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
(Isaiah 26:4, NIV)
I have many that inspire, consume and replenish my soul.
The verse you see below was the inspiration behind naming this blog it is one I hold dear to my heart. I know my life has been blessed many times by angels.
Remember to welcome strangers because some that have done this have welcomed angels without knowing it. Hebrews, 13.1
Yet the last 6 months I’ve been searching for something that will explain me.
I get a lot of people asking me how I do what I do, how I’ve survived what I have.
This simply explains it all. I don’t do it alone , all that I do, all that I achieve is because of and through Christ Jesus.

I grew up a good Catholic girl and, inevitably maybe, when I hit teenagehood (or the age of knowing it all) I began to question and cynic my way through religion. I returned slowly but not evangelically it has to be said. I don’t believe in being in a church on my knees every Sunday, for instance, to prove I believe. But, simply put, I did believe in God in some form.
Just before my husband die unexpectedly two years ago, I felt a tangible shadow walk pass me. I noted it and didn’t pay it much mind but I wasn’t afraid. I remember that most vividly, I wasn’t afraid. Then we got the knock on the door about a month later.
Since then, I have experienced God in many ways – some of them not easily explainable – and categorically feel him working and moving in my life in a way I have never felt before.
I am still not evangelical about it, just accepting and at peace with what is now happening.
Your post touched me.
We left church back in 2000 after the people rejected my disabled daughter. For a long time I rejected religion but loved God. Then when we lost our daughter I just felt so lost and it was my return to church that gave me the hope to survive. I still have many issues with religion but I love Jesus with all my heart.
