I can’t believe it’s September. Fall is coming! It’s already appeared in my house.
As I say with every one of these posts, this is not meant to make anyone feel like they have to make this list. These are the posts that really spoke to me this month.
NEW BLOGGER– God’s Whispers Of Truth– ❤ Brain Injury And Social Life Isolation Hurts – Vivian is a new blogger that I’ve been checking out. Vivian shares what it is like to have chronic illness and also sharing and reflecting the light of Christ. This post, in particular, I’ve found to be very powerful. What really stood out to me is how she talks about God uses the hard stuff for His glory, and that even when we do not understand, He can use us or our situations (though difficult) to help ourselves grow or to help someone else. She, in a summary, shared why we go through bad things and why God allows it.
The Accident That Took My Friend Herm– This post was very heartfelt. Herm was a woman of Christ. Vivian shares their friendship and what led up to their death. How even after all of this God gave Vivian comfort in all things.
A New Life– Grandma’s Words– This post is extremely touching. It’s written in the perspective of a grandmother helping a granddaughter letting go.
Running The Race– A Hope On Both Sides Of The Grave– Heather write a powerful and convicting post encouraging us to understand the purpose in pain. God’s plan is so far beyond what we understand. But trusting Him allows understanding to come our way.
Fractured Faith Blog– 99% Of You Won’t Read This– Stephen writes a truth I think many of us as bloggers relate to. We see numbers, the stats in our blog, it can affect how we view our blog, and our writing. He takes this negativity and puts a positive perspective on it, a reminder we all need.
Tizzies Tidbits– I Worshipped 8 Idols Today– Grace wrote a powerful post about the things in our life we can easily place above Christ. Very convicting!!
Love your body – I really love this post from Grace. She talks about what scripture discusses when it comes to our body and how we need to focus on what we are given.
Grace Over Pain–The Different Names Of God Jehovah Rohi- Efua shared an amazing perspective on Psalm 23. She goes over the scriptures and shows how different verses cover different needs!!! Wonderful post!
Jesskidding– Even Jesus Took Naps– Jess wrote this very convicting post about how Jesus, despite a raging storm, had His peace and security in God. It really related to me as I’ve been struggling with fear and anxiety. I want to openly rebuke my fear and worry.
The Buttercup Lamp–It Will Not Be Taken Away Learning From The Story Of Mary & Martha– Rachel took a great step when she felt God was calling her to write more posts leading women in scripture. I feel like this post represents a whole new avenue of writing for Rachel. She expresses how Mary was doing what she was suppose to. Maratha had to get everything done. Rachel points out that Jesus speaking to Maratha was a remind that physical needs have their place. Chores, food, to do lists, etc. But having time for Christ will not be taken away.
Grace Over Pain– There Is Purpose In Singleness – Efua wrote a powerful post expanding on how being single is a good thing and there are many advantages to it.
Retrospective Lily – Practical Tips For Daily Bible Reading– Lily shares some really great tips for Bible Study. Really love her thoroughness!
Run With It – Hope Deferred – This post by Sue is so encouraging. She speaks openly about why it is important we spend time alone with the Lord. It really ministered to me, I hope it ministers to you.
