Ladies,
Good morning!
I'm hoping to get more caught up on everyone's news. At a quick glance, everyone is going thru so much!

My thoughts and prayers are with each of you, please know that!
Times like these I hold on tightly to my favorite scripture Romans 8:28.
It has held me up more times than I can count!

Farmgirl hugs,
Linda

Although I cannot go into details about my daughter that moved out, please know that it's not over (the struggles, decisions, family warfare as I call it etc).

Thank you for your prayers. We are trying to keep the routine normal here, but extended family is causing much strife with this.

We try not to re-hash it, and pick up and move on.

Today, I struggle with it. I could not get sleep last night, even though I felt I was done with all of it. I am trying to keep my faith.

Could you pray for hubby? He's working what they call "turn around" now. He will be working 12-14 hour days - all in a row. He left yesterday at 6:30am and got home around 1am, only to leave again at 6:30am today (working until midnight).

I miss him, but I know he's doing it for us. Public school costs are horrible this year, among other expenses.

It feels so strange for him to be gone so much.

As for my daughter, she was to return one of our cars by tonight. Due to the situation, we decided not to continue to pay her car insurance and asked for the car back (found out my brother's secretly got her one possibly - another bad situation). I'm not sure if it will get returned yet. There are so many lies involved. I pray daily, but my extended family is conspired to make dh and I look bad in all of this. I feel like it's the sign of the times already, but will keep my faith. Please continue to pray for dh and I. With technology (e-mails and cells) we can only prevent so much from influencing our other children at home.

It's rainy and cool here today. It makes me want to make a soup of some sort. I may even take my Bible to the porch this morning. There has been so much heaviness here for such a long time.

Thanks again for your prayers. They mean so much to us.

My continued prayers for your family, your daughter and your husbands job.

Vanessa isn't it wonderful to know Jesus, I sure couldn't do it without Him.

Thanks to a brand new day!

Good moring, Linda! My you are up early today!!! And good morning to all of you, sisters, too! You have all been in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all is well. It's going to take me a while to catch up to speed!

Oh, CJ! I just love the Names of God! YEARS ago, I used to watch Marilyn Hickey on a regular basis (learned SO much from her back then!), and she did a wonderful study on the Eight Redemptive Names of God. I loved it so much, I bought the teaching tapes! I wonder where I put them... I'll have to look.

We should all remember, too:

Jehovah Tsidkenu - the Lord Our Righteousness;
Jehovah Shammah - the Lord Who is Everywhere (Omnipresent)
Jehovah Sabaoth - the Lord Our Protector, the Lord of Hosts!
Jehovah Makkeh - the Lord Who Smites or the Lord Who Molds Me
Jehovah Mekoddishkem - the Lord who Sanctifies You

And remember the El names, too!

El Shaddai - the Lord Almighty (Love that song, "El Shaddai" by Amy Grant - I sing it all the time!)
El Elyon - The Most High God
El Olam - The Everlasting God
Elohim - God

And, of course, Adonai - Lord and Master; and Yaweh - Lord, Jehovah.

These names are beautiful reminders of the facets of who God is to us! They fill my heart with joy! Now I'm going to be singing them and praising Him all day! Thank you so much, CJ!!! We should do a Bible study on the Names of God!!!

Love and blessings to all -

Nini

Hello all! Prayers going up for all of you!!

Been awhile, back to work so busy. Past weekend my back went out so home yesterday and today, hoping to go back tomorrow. Is better but a ways to go. Went to Dr. first thing yesterday morning for some muscle relaxants and they are helping. Last time was about 4 years ago that this happened so guess I should not complain, could always be worse.

Even though I don't get on here I do pray for all my farmgirl friends.

Ooooh! Rae! You poor thing! That's awful! Sending up prayers for you right now, sister!

You know, CJ, I want to say that now that you mention it, I did know you did a Bible study on the Names of God... I'm going to have to look it up this weekend when I have more time... It couldn't hurt to start another, though, if you want to! I'd love that! :)

Good morning! I havent been on here for awhile. Just finished watching Daystar-Joni Lambs round table. Her guest was Marilyn Hickey and I come on here and see Nini talking about her! If you do a study again on the names of God count me in! I have El Shaddai on my ipod and love to listen to it when I am on the treadmill (once a year lol).Time to wake up the kids before they are late for school. Have a blessed day and remember- You are a daughter of God!!

Just a quick update and thanks for your prayers. We just got the news today that my FIL's lung cancer is isolated to the one tumor and is not in the lymph nodes. Its starting to look like he will have a pretty good chance of getting through this. Just waiting to hear if it will be surgery or just radiation. Oncologist expects a full recovery so we are very thankful today.

Lea - that IS funny! You know, I learned so much from her when I was young. I haven't watched her as much over the years, but occasionally catch her show. I just love her positive attitude! :)

Happy Friday!

I'm trying to stay busy to keep my mind from focusing on "worry" around here these days.

I'm trying to focus on God and not problems....sigh...

Beth Moore did a book called Praying God's Word......reading some of the recent posts above made me think of it. And Ann Spangler has a devotional journal called Praying the Names of God....very nice. I may be repeating here what someone else has said, if so, sorry!

Kristina, focusing on God and not on fear is one of my struggles too. But as time goes by, I have looked back and noticed that deciding to think on God and Godly things during the most awful times does help me get through, not necessarily making it easy, but easier. And it strengthens my relationship with HIM. Praying for you.

Hi,
So glad I found the Christian farmgirl forum! Any of you happen to be located in New Jersey? Anyway, been struggling with my faith lately, or rather, having faith. What do you think God has to say about depression and anxiety? Why does He allow it?

I've experienced depression since I was a teen, and all I can say is, it hurts like heck but it can be a chance to grow spiritually as well. You can't truly know joy until you've known sorrow. and I believe, the more sorrow carves into your being, the more the Spirit can fill you. There are medications that help to keep us from becoming too unbalanced, but they're not a cure. To everything there is a season--a time to cast away stones...a time to heal...a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing. Sometimes the thing we're embracing is a person, or a situation, or a certain mindset. Growth in any way, shape, or form is often painful. But we have to grow, or whither away. I hope this makes sense. I'm still here, after all these years and it hasn't always been easy. But God never said it would be easy.

Hi girls!

Nancy and Cindy, I'm so sorry you both struggle with this. As I read your posts, I recalled a Scripture memory song about Matthew 6:25 on anxiety. Here is the passage - Matthew 6:25 - 34:

"25 Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34 "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day."

And here are more verses that may help you, dear sisters:

Deuteronomy 31:8: “It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Deuteronomy 32:10: "In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye."

If anyone suffered stress and anxiety, it was David. Like you, he battled depression by pressing even harder into the Lord in faith:

2 Samuel 22:17-22: "17 He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; 18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. 19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay. 20 He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 21 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. 22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God."

Psalms 34:17: "When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles."

Psalms 40:1-3: "I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD."

Psalms 37:3-4: "Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart."

Psalms 42:11: "Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God."

Psalms 46:10: "Be still, and know that I am God."

Psalms 147: 4-5: "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."

Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

Philippians 4:6-7: "7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 8 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

I hope these help a little bit, sisters! Remember the Word is Living and True! The same yesterday, today and forever! You CAN trust Him in all things! And we're here to support and love you through!

Hugs and blessings -

Hello - me again!

The other night, my husband and I were watching a very old movie about Moses. It suddenly occurred to me that God loved and used Moses, even though he had been a murderer... And the most amazing part is, that we never read in the Bible where God brings this up to him or holds it against him - ever. God just calls him and once Moses was in God's will, it was as if his sin was completely washed away in the sea of forgetfulness, as the Word promises! How awesome is THAT?! How awesome IS that?! How AWESOME is that?! And then when you think about the awesome ways God was able to work through Moses once he gave Himself to God... It simply takes my breath away. How wonderful - such a blessing - to know that we enjoy this same complete forgiveness in Christ as we submit our lives to God! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen! And AMEN!!!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ!" Ephesians 1:3 (exclamation mine)

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead," 1 Peter 1:3

"3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4

Oh, how blessed we are to live in Him! To Him be all the Honor and Glory and Power - now and forever! Amen!
