Welcome to Day 5 of Chapter 1 of Part 2 from Arise and Shine. Today, Bettie is sharing a personal story about prayer and God’s redemption. The devotional includes a beautiful prayer and a link to a song that communicates the beauty of God’s eternal redemption.

    1. Amen, Maryleigh, He is so faithful to restore those years. I love how you said that, “He hedged me, sustained me, and protected me.” We just don’t realize until we look back, all of the ways that He was caring for us. Blessings and love to you dear friend.


  2. I loved your post. I tried to leave a comment on the other blog but it wouldn’t accept my password. Argh! Anyhow — as so often happens with your posts, I read this at a time when I needed it most. I have been striving too much and trusting too little lately. Thank you for the reminder to slow down and trust in him.

    1. Dear Lisa, Oh I am so sorry about the password glitch! Thank you for reading and commenting here still! I am so very blessed that God brought His encouragement through these words. He really does keep reminding me too, to slow and trust Him more. Sometimes I think I am such a slow learner! But even then, He is just so patient. Love and blessings to you dear sister.
