    Julie and Jen – Thank you for sharing. Jen – I have not had the pleasure of meeting you but I have walked somewhat in your shoes. I know the heart of gratitude is one of the best weapons against discouragement. And , never having met you, Jen, I will lift you up in my prayers. Julie – it is always an encouragement to listen to you. Thank you so much. ….lss

    Love it! Wisdom and understanding come hand in hand. We are much like a computer. The hardware of the computer is the brain. It has all kinds of room to store data and information BUT it is all useless without the software. The understanding is the data that we store; the wisdom is the software that allows us to retrieve it and put it all together SO THAT we can then in all knowledge put it all together and OUT THERE.

    On another note….prayer is a tool we often overlook. The disciples were known for praying AND teaching. Praying over people and for people are so important. Sometimes we might think we need to be physically present or even audible for our prayers to be powerful, but God will always give us understanding, power and knowledge to pray for others without being physically with them.

    What a true blessing to know that I am a saint! My fellowship with my Lord and Savior is a testimony that through lots of anguish and troubled times I have strived to be a “saint”. Julie – thanks so much for the opportunity to study the word of God from the comfort of my couch and during my own quiet time!
    Jen- I have walked in your shoes as a caregiver of a husband with cancer. By the grace of God and oceans of prayer, my husband is cancer free from a diagnosis of a stage four cancer throughout his body. I have been blessed with what some people refer to with the “patience of a saint” and that is what it takes to journey through the experience of a loved one with a grim diagnosis. Be strong and know that each day is one day closer to recovery. I will continue to pray for you and David !

    Interesting that the Jesus Calling devotional today echoed this lesson – “there will be difficulties along the way, but you can face them confidently in My strength. Thank Me for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how how I transform trials into blessings.” Wow! Love that God knows I need repetition :)

    Wow! So good! Thank you both for sharing. Jennifer, being thankful for the lamp is so powerful and reminds me I should never be without hope!
