Friends and Fellow Seekers,
Welcome to this window into my world…
A Little About Me:My name is Deborah, and like many of you, I’m a wife, a mother, a friend, a neighbor, and much more… I’m a woman who loves the LORD and desires to Seek Him first in every area of my life. My passions are Prayer, Bible Study, Bible Study, and Bible Study. My favorite book, after the Bible, is without a doubt Strong’s Concordance. I love word studies, topical studies, character studies, book studies, and chain references. Above all else, I enjoy planning special “events” and creative ways to encourage my friends in their faith. I am a painter, a quilter, a reader (primarily non-fiction and poetry), a runner, and a writer. I write because I was made in the image of an Author, and my life has been significantly influenced by written words. It is my hope that I might, as Whitman said, “contribute a verse” and encourage someone else by leaving “footprints on the sands of time” like my buddy Longfellow.
What about you?Who are you? What do you enjoy? Without pride of comparison, what were you made in the image of God to do for His glory? If you write, you are a writer. If you paint, you are a painter. If you run, you are a runner. What have you always wanted to be? Then do it! But, before all else, be yourself doing all for the glory of God, remembering that “you are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for you to do” (Eph.2:10).
Our greatest contributions probably will not be on the world’s stage (or internet) but rather in real life activities and ordinary conversations; so don’t underestimate making your corner of the world beautiful with your Divinely inspired contribution. Get busy living and learning, seeking and finding, and sharing your gifts and discoveries with the people in your circles of intimate influence.
— In the end, all you (and your acquaintances) need is Jesus. If you have His word and if you have HIM, you have everything you need; so, I hope my words will ultimately inspire you to click the “X” in the upper corner of your screen…. shut down your computer, be quiet, and rest in the LORD.
My Prayer for You:I pray that after you spend some time here you will…
- delight yourself in LORD and seek Him more passionately,
- love and encourage your husband more genuinely and graciously,
- enjoy and disciple your children more tenderly and patiently,
- protect and keep your home more cheerfully,
- excel in your work more confidently and productively,
- exercise your gifts more intentionally and powerfully,
- pursue your interests more creatively,
- develop and use your made-in-the-image-of-God talents more courageously.
So, who are you???
