Count It All Joy

It has been awhile since you have heard from me…  a lot has been happening….

Things were getting to stressful for me and it was making me sick, literally.  So I stepped back a bit and looked at my life.  One thing I discovered, I needed to clean up my food.  I am gluten free – so I eat pretty clean, but all of the GF processed foods were not helping.  I also was looking into leaky gut and realized that a lot of the symptoms sound like my oldest daughter (29) who has severe chronic migraines.  So I started thinking about how that could help her as well.  In the midst of all of that, I realized that several other of my kids at home had similar issues going on.  So we have been eliminating ALL process foods from our diet.  I am not replacing things as we use them up.  We may have to give some to a food pantry.  It has been a long process of re-learning to cook without any processed foods and incorporating fermented foods into our diet.

So I am counting it ALL JOY!

James 1:2-4Count it all joy, my brothers,[b] when you meet trials of various kinds,for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I am so thankful that I got sick.  That God showed me how our eating, though fairly healthy, was contributing to how our bodies were reacting to processed foods.  I am thankful that I have seen a change in me.  I am thankful for my oldest daughter is having some “good” days!  I am thankful that God is faithful – that He is perfecting us – that He cares about what is happening in our lives.

In all of this, I realized that things were not where they should be at Faith Sisters.  The focus was too much on digital scrapbooking and that seems to be dwindling.  SO after much praying and discussing, we are going to make some big changes at FS.  We will still have digital scrapbooking, but it will be taking the back burner (be sure to watch what will be happening to our store).  We want to be encouraging you in ALL aspects of life – so we will be making some changes to incorporate these ideas!  We can’t wait to get started, but since I am the admin / IT person / site designer / contributor, things will be happening bit by bit.

Yesterday in church, God reminded me that it is time to get busy again.  We are studying Acts, even when Paul was in jail, he was fervent about sharing the Gospel.

Psalm 3 – Save Me

Psalm 3:5-8

I lay down and slept;
    I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
    who have set themselves against me all around.

Arise, O Lord!
    Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
    you break the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the Lord;
    your blessing be on your people! Selah

Let’s think about verse 5 – I lay down and slept….  We are at peace because we know that God is with us – He is our Salvation!  It also talks about waking again – God is in control.  He is protecting us – He is the Great Physician, He is Sovereign….  David is praising God for ALL of these things!!!

Can you say these things?  Are you confident that God is our Salvation?  Are you confident that He will give you peace?  How about sustaining you?

As in Psalm 1:3 but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lordand on his law he meditates day and night.but his delight is in the law of the Lordand on his law he meditates day and night.  Are you resting in HIS Promises???
