  1. Hello Becky!
    Thanks so much for the comment. I sure do understand what you mean. We are saved by faith, yes, but Jesus also placed a great deal of importance on obedience.

  2. It’s always nice to hear of others not being perfect, but working out their own salvation with fear and trembling. Please do not misunderstand, I do not say that to infer that we earn our own salvation in any way!! Just that we are needy of His help, always!!

  3. Hello Sonja,
    I know I’ve always been one to want my own way! I’m so thankful for God’s patience and grace.
    Thanks for your comment!

  4. Hello Britney! Oh, I well remember having three young children. So much joy and fun, a whole lot of work and uncertainty. God is so patient and faithful, and He knows all about our weaknesses and loves us anyway! Thank you for your comment. 🙂

  5. It’s always good to learn to trust God and his paths for each of us. Sometimes we can all be stubborn and try our own ways first, simply because it’s what we want.

  6. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post! As a wife and mother of three young children, I loved Jill’s quote, “To love is to know pain, for people (particularly husbands and children) seldom behave on-script!” So true! I admit that I do not greet trials with joy. However, it is wonderful to know that God is always with us and we should always put our faith and trust in Him. We are certainly blessed in all situations!
