What I Know Without a Doubt

Some nights I lay in bed and think of my day or my circumstances. I wonder if I made a difference in the world that day or wonder if my situation will every change. There are times I feel like I've failed my family or my ministry or even God. And times I feel like I am stuck in a revolving door of my situation with no way out.

But there is something I never wonder about. Something that I do know for sure.

What I know without a doubt

I know God is real.

I know He loves me.

I know I am His.

I know He is always a breath away.

I know He is offering me grace.

I know He will always be my help.

No matter what happens, what you do, or what is going on around you, you can always be sure of God. Turn to Him. Find faith in Him.

Please listen to this amazing song by Tricia Brock. Let the words sink into your heart.

On Guard

Each day there is an unseen war over you. A war in the heavenly realms. Satan is fighting to win you over. He puts obstacles in your path to block your view of God. He makes your schedule busy so you cannot spend time with the Father. He makes you too tired to worship. He does whatever He can to pull you farther away from our King.

But the Word of God tells us to be on guard and stand firm. We must be strong and courageous. Don't let the enemy win. When he puts obstacles in your path, knock them down. Praise through it. When you are too tired or have a schedule too busy, carve time out anyway to be with the One who loves you enough that He laid down His life for you.

It's going to be okay friend. Just remember to stand firm and be courageous.

Jesus Sees Us {giveaway}

By the time a child turns 3, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him, just like your child. They can understand that Jesus grew to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same.

To get our children to that point of knowing Jesus, we need begin as early as birth sharing Him. To foster that knowledge once they are capable of relating to Him, we must continue to share stories of Jesus and His great love and mercy. Make Him a part of our every day, every moment. Not just Sunday morning.

One amazing way we can bring Jesus to our children, is the new Jesus Sees Us storybook and doll.

The Jesus Sees Us storybook is a wonderful book with bright colors and brilliant pictures that shares stories of Jesus and how we can be like Him. And the Jesus doll gives your child something to hold on to, to snuggle with.

My sweet nephew, Major, napping with Jesus.
He was terrified of the doll at first, then loved him!

Now, I have to share how our family has been using our Jesus doll. Each year at Christmas there is a little elf that sits on shelves. He randomly moves around the house for children to wake up and find. Jesus has been roaming through our house much the same. It's been so much fun.

My husband 'hid' Jesus in my daughter's curtains and she found him there. Then she hid him for my husband to find. Then my husband hid him, then my son, and the hiding continues. My husband says, "Jesus is always watching you!" As I type, Jesus is sitting on the self in the living room between a vase and stack of books, just waiting to be discovered. It's been fun for my family as well as a great visual reminder that no matter where we are or what we are doing, Jesus is watching.

The Jesus Sees Us storybook and doll come together and make a wonderful birthday gift, addition to an Easter basket, or a just because treat. Your child will love snuggling with Jesus and hearing the stories.
