It's the Lord's desire for us to
find Him in all our situations and know that when life is good and when life is tough,
He is there for us.
This is a place to find encouragement to learn to rest in His presence in it all.

His Work in Us
For I am confident
of this very thing,
who began a good work in you
will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6 | NASB
The work of Christ in us was sparked by the Heavenly Father. He created us, knew us, and when our hearts were ready to properly respond, He brought into our lives the flame that would ignite a desire for Him. We choose how to respond to the spark and when we say yes, the Lord runs with it!
On those days when we royally mess up, repentance opens the door for the Lord to flood His grace and mercy over us. His transformation in us breathes life into every part of our hearts and lives.
We must never give up, when we sin. Our hatred of sin and surrender to the Lord are evidence of His work taking root in our lives. We cooperate with His work when we honestly face those sinful areas in our thoughts, words, and actions that dishonor others and our Savior and seek His forgiveness.
