Miracle Monday


I am so amazed at the way God watches over me, and I praise Him for His care. My husband and I live in an apartment complex, we have lived here since 2000. When we first moved here, it was a really nice place to live. But, in the last couple of years, things have taken a turn for the worse. This has become a very scary place to be. A few months ago, a woman was murdered over drugs. It happened during the day, and that night, there was a fire in one of the apartments, and a woman died. There are apartments constantly getting raided due to having meth labs. Two months ago, they raided the apartment above ours. Now, that is scary!! I sometimes feel, as if we are living in a war zone. We are so close to danger, but through the miracle of Gods wedge of protection, that He has placed around us, we remain safe. Thank You Lord, we love You.

Nice new look. Wow, God is looking out for you. It's amazing how much of America is becoming like a third world mission field. Hurting people all around you seeking drugs, relationships, etc. when what they really need is Jesus. I'll pray for your safety and God's protection over you and your family.

Hellllllllo dear friend, Denise!! Wow!!! First off, what a lively and so colorful new blog layout! I truly love it....the beating hearts....it's perfect.

I know exactly what you mean about living in a 'war zone'....it's a sad state of affairs. The whole world.

I love how you stated the 'wedge of God's protection' Somehow that makes one feel saved...AND safe!!

Love the new Look!

The protection of God is amazing. How many times has His hand held back things we did not even know are coming our way.

I am glad that you are resting safe in His hands.

I hate that your neighborhood has changed so much since you moved in. On the other hand, what a fertle ground for living a life of witness for Christ. Still it is scary! Have you thought about moving? Praises for your safety.
