Yahweh had his heart set on you and chose you…
Jennifer Quinn is just a woman saved by grace and undeservedly blessed with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Her focus is on her God and Savior, husband, children, homeschooling, and whenever she glances out the window... it's on her backyard chickens. She makes mistakes and sometimes looses focus on her Savior in the busyness and stresses of life. Fortunately her God is a patient and gentle teacher who can work even the stresses and messes of this life into something that points to and gives glory to Him. Her hope is that she might share a little bit of the wisdom and encouragement that God is teaching her with her sisters and brothers in Christ for their good and for His glory.
I do not have it all figured out in any part of my life. But isn’t that an important part of our journey as parents, artists, spouses, friends, etc.?
Why do we cling to fear when our loving Father has arms that desire to hold us? Perfect love and trust in our heavenly Father cast out our fears. I’m still learning this and imagine that, in this life, it may always be a struggle, but thankfully my heavenly Father is a gentle and patient teacher.
With God, there is no such thing as meaningless suffering. He comforts us in our sorrows and trials and brings beauty from our brokenness. God is good, so He will work all things for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.
