Matthew 7 New International Version

Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.Related image

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

God doesn’t Forget

Psalm 9 New International Version 

11 Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion;
    proclaim among the nations what he has done.
12 For he who avenges blood remembers;
    he does not ignore the cries of the afflicted.

13 Lord, see how my enemies persecute me!
    Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 that I may declare your praises
    in the gates of Daughter Zion,
    and there rejoice in your salvation.

15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;
    their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice;
    the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[c]
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,
    all the nations that forget God.
18 But God will never forget the needy;
    the hope of the afflicted will never perish.

19 Arise, Lord, do not let mortals triumph;
    let the nations be judged in your presence.
20 Strike them with terror, Lord;
    let the nations know they are only mortal.

Weathering Chiari

Thank you all for your continued prayers for me!

After months of waiting and not knowing anything new, there is positive progress! My mom and I are flying to a specialty Chiari clinic in Colorado (2/15-19). They will do a 3 day evaluation to determine if they think I would benefit from brain surgery. If there is a surgery, it will be about a month later, after the insurance pre-approval is processed.

It has all come together in the last two weeks and God’s hand has clearly been on all of it!

The neurosurgeon I saw in Seattle, in October, was concerned that on top of Chiari Malformation, I also have MS. I was referred to the MS clinic at OHSU, in November, and I’m still waiting to schedule with them. I don’t think that I have MS. I have no brain lesions and different symptoms. Chiari is still being…

Ask Us – Will I Ever be Able to Trust Again?

Don't Lose Hope

In this post we will briefly answer a question that was asked by one of our clients. Here is today’s question:

I am afraid to trust again. My husband was betraying me behind my back for years, and I had absolutely no idea. So, my question is how can I know it’s safe to trust another man.? I’m afraid that I’ll be duped again.”

When we’ve been betrayed, especially if it’s multiple times, or over a long period of time, then it absolutely natural to fear trusting again. It’s also natural to be afraid that you might miss something important – because you were successfully deceived in the past. It’s sad but it’s very understandable. Your fears here are normal, and are actually very healthy.

Let me beginning by saying : What you did in your previous relationship was right.

You were right to trust your ex-husband. We…

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Promise in Waiting

dorothy's page

Waiting for the moment
Will I know when it is here
Am I waiting in vain
What I heard, was it clear

I don’t know how it will come
Or from whom it will begin
All I know is, it is coming
I just don’t know when

So many questions
I can’t begin to ask
Just thinking about the day
Is more than a task

Can my heart take the waiting
Will I stand till then
Will I start tomorrow like today
Waiting again

I will not make it happen
Through deception or strife
I will fulfill my destiny
But through His plan for my life

He promised, He cannot lie
I have a purpose to fulfill
I’m still waiting for the promise
You know, the one in His will

First at Last

You’ve made me last

So that I would be first

You’ve given fresh water

To those who thirst

And hunger after righteousness

For they are truly filled

With your Holy Spirit

The One who reveals the Will

Of the Father

His purpose in the earth

Equipped to complete assignments

Given to them at birth

Pains from creatures’ travailing

Waiting for sons to manifest

Bringing deliverance, salvation

Hope, redemption and rest

From labor to reward

What we’ve all been waiting for

The prize of the high calling,

What we’ve all been working towards

Has meet us at the back

The very back of the line

For he was always waiting there

For he had First in mind

The time … my toddler had surgery

Ellie the Crunch

So apparently my toddler was born with something called a dermoid cyst.

I noticed it only when he was 2 (not 2 months, 2 years old!). I was looking at him and noticed a small lump by his inner eye.

I started researching up and right, asking on line. It was in the middle of the pandemic and we had a Zoom visit with his pediatrician who dismissed it as a clogged tear duct or a stye.

I wasn’t satisfied. I knew it was neither.

I researched and researched and researched for weeks till I found something that looked similar. It was called dermoid cyst.

I found a small Facebook group dedicated to this subject and I joined it.

I quickly learned that dermoid cysts usually are formed in the womb from extra skin and hair tissues and they mostly present as a pit in the middle of the nose.
