As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. -- Isaiah 55:10-11

And what a great devotional it was to read this morning. Through the fire, we are refined and the thorn in our flesh reminds us to look not within ourselves, but to Daddy!

Mizzbrizz, if you could have been here when she flopped down and her hair flopped with her, you would have rolled! Moments like that convince me there is a God because I didn't burst out laughing! LOL!

Hi Jerri - I feel so honoured to be blogging with an author, (insert flappy hands around face) :) Your words will be an encouragement to many for many years.
God bless

Jerri Kelley said...

Tracy, you are so making me laugh! LOL

Thank you, dear one. :-) Such an honor to be used to encourage. Needed it so many times myself and am so thankful to hand it out. Can make all the difference in the battle, you know?
