Faithful Fridays

Welcome to my first ever Faithful Friday!

Fridays are a good day to look back and reflect on the week, and what God has been doing in our lives recently. 

One verse that has been popping up for me recently has been Ephesians 3:20.  I've seen it on friends' craft projects, in my Bible reading, and even in my weekly Bible study.  In the NIV, it reads,"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,". I have to say though, that this is one verse I think I understand better in the KJV, which uses the phrase "exceeding abundantly above".


To me, that sounds like Paul is saying for us to take what we think we should ask, or can imagine God doing, and just know that He can do things that are WAY beyond that.  And that's what I feel like He has been doing lately. He has taken care of us in ways we never would have imagined over the last few months. Finances have been a big part of that of course, but even things beyond that, like blessing me with the ability to get a keyboard. I haven't had daily access to a piano in five years, so having even a 61-key keyboard now is amazing.

After Daniel's health issues in July, God opened doors for me to work with the MTHFR family two days a week, providing us with a way to get supplements and knowledge that we wouldn't have gotten on our own, as well as providing some socialization for me, and a chance to use my teaching skills, as well as develop some knowledge of child development and parenting strategies.


He's blessed Daniel and I with a growing, changing, amazing relationship as we work through Love & Respect (affiliate link). We're getting to be quite a team now!  :)

I'm eager to see where God will take me as I continue to learn what it means that He can do exceedingly abundantly above all I can ask or think.  

What has God been teaching you lately? Leave me a comment and let me know, or write your own blog post on it, and link up below!  :)

I don't know how to design those cool logo things like other bloggers have for their series, so you'll just have to bear with me without one. Sorry!  (If someone wants to design one for me for free, I wouldn't turn down the offer!)

  1. For me it's been Col 1:27. "...Christ in [me], the hope of glory." (NIV) This is one that He has to keep bringing me back to because I get all excited about things and keeping trying to take the reins. He's quick to remind me that what I do on my own is miniscule compared to what He can do through me! :)

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment! I was excited to find another Christian IF blogger too!

      We're still working our way through Love & Respect, so I'm not sure I can comment on it much, but it's nice to hear of another wife who has read it and liked it!
