I loved him, but I couldn’t please him. I was so ashamed when he divorced me. Maybe I’ll please this man. No.

Five men. Five divorces.

I‘ll just live with this man.

The women snub me. They talk behind my back.

I’m so alone. Passed from one man to the next.

No friends.

God, have You also rejected me?

Jesus in Me … Thankfully Read

I look forward to the evenings that my husband and I put on our walking shoes, grab each other’s hand, and step outside. As we enjoy the companionship of each other, we point out nature’s beauty, discuss the day, and share our dreams, disappointments, struggles, and hopes. My husband is my lifelong friend, servant leader, and lover of my soul.

We have another walking companion – a constant Companion in the Holy Spirit. This is the Companion Anne Graham Lotz has revealed in Jesus in Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for
good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

There is a Better Way!

Come, everyone who thirsts,
come to the waters;
and he who has no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without price.

Isaiah 55:1

Who works 9 to 5 anymore? Longer hours, more demands, 24/7 responsibilities! It seems like our world is on fire, literally, and in our lifestyles. Just like the heat outside, 100 degrees with no clouds in the sky and sun beating down on us, our to-do lists get longer, pounding us down mercilessly. Is our running from one demand to another getting us where we want to go?

There is a better way.
