You are loved.
I am born to love and to be loved.

I have a God.

I have a Dad.

I have a Savior.

I have a Lord.

He is a healer, a provider, a helper, a listener.

He is my hope, my joy, my peace, and my salvation. He cares and He loves.... exceedingly.

I love Him so much and He loves me too! Truth is, He loves you as well! Isn't He great?

He loves us all boundlessly that He even gave his only Son to save us! Jesus Christ did.

1 John 3:16 - "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us..."


I am Kirstin and this is my blog. You may find it interesting (i hope) but this is basically my way of expressing my inner thoughts about my walk with God, my everyday life, my everyday randomness. :) See you around!

God bless you love! :*

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.

Ezekiel 36:26-27.

When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.

 “What are you arguing with them about?” he asked.

A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”

“You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”

So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.

Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?”

“From childhood,” he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”

 “ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:14-24)

I have uttered many prayers for help throughout my life, but none with such pleading and desperation than the time my wife experienced a miscarriage. As we began to notice that things were not going well with the pregnancy, we both prayed with a fervency we had never experienced before. And yet, my wife still miscarried. Why didn’t God intervene to heal her and save the baby?

I think this is the kind of question we all have in mind after reading a passage like this. What we want to know, what we long to understand, is why God doesn’t heal, provide or protect in the ways we are hoping and praying that He will. Jesus healed the boy “possessed by a spirit,” so why won’t He heal me? Or my spouse? Or my friend?

That question, of course, is far bigger than anything we could possibly cover in a brief devotional, but it’s instructive perhaps to consider Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane. Not one of us could ever hope to pray with more trust, faith, and belief than Jesus, and yet God, in His wisdom, nevertheless chose not to answer that particular prayer. Clearly there are aspects of God’s sovereign will that we can never fully comprehend this side of Heaven.

Tomorrow we’ll continue our examination of this passage, considering more carefully Jesus’ conversation with the man about his sick son. But for today, one thing we do know, for sure, without any doubt, is that God wants us to pray about everything. Even when things don’t make sense and we have absolutely no clue what is going on, God wants us to pray.

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1)

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

Two actions steps lead out of these verses. First, take your requests and concerns to God today. Now. Whether it makes sense or not, whether you feel full of faith or not, whether the situation seems bleak and hopeless or not, persist in prayer and do not give up. Second, please let us know how we can be praying for you. We gather as a staff to pray for you every Tuesday. We would love to pray specifically for you tomorrow. 

"28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. 29 He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. 30 Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, 31 Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary."

(Isaiah 40:28-31)

I have given God countless reasons not to love me. None of them has been strong enough to change Him.
