leaning on Him


As I was sitting in church last Sunday looking at this drum I was grateful to see this scripture.  I am leaning heavily on Christ's strength right now.  Getting used to this new country we live in and its culture can be stressful some days. 

I am thankful for the promises that I can look to in God's word... His word never fails!

Point of Grace

 I love Point of Grace... and this song has been on my heart and I feel blessed each time I sing along.


I have no doubt
Sometimes I don't know where I'm going
Where the road this leading me
Life can be full of so many changes
So many uncertainties
But there's one thing that's constant in this heart of mine
It's knowing that You're gonna love me, come rain or shine

(Chorus)
I have no doubt
That you will never leave me
That You'll be there to keep me safe and warm
I have no doubt
No matter where you take me
That nothing can separate me from You, Lord

I don't know what You've planned for tomorrow
Or what lies up ahead for me
Pleasure, pain, worry or sorrow
Today is as far as I can see
You may see fit to take me through the valley, Lord
Or on the mountain
It makes no difference where I go

(Bridge) 1
I wanna run away
From that voice that I hear calling
But I'll be quick to answer and obey

(Chorus)
Nothing could separate me
Nothing could ever separate me

Matthew 7:24-29

Father,
I am so grateful that our marriage, our family and our lives are built on the Rock.  No matter what storms come our way we will stand and continue to stand.

I praise You, O Rock, You are the reason we can handle whatever life has to offer us.
