Sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom so that you will discover that he is your rock at the bottom.

  1. Humbling but true. Thank you so much for the reminder. In our weaknesses He is strong!! We praise in in the good and the bad….OK, these are all the reminders from scripture I try to keep in mind. No matter what…our Lord reigns and as you remind us with your lovely picture. He is the Rock…our Firm foundation.
    Thank you so much!!
    Keep serving Him well Dear Friend…and as always, thank you for your wonderfully sweet encouragement,

    1. Humbling, that’s the truth. I fall, then fall again, only to fall again – Each time He’s there to pick me up – My faithful God.

      I am always blessed by your kind words and I really am thankful for all the wonderful fellowship this blog allows.

      God bless you!

    1. I AM IN NO POSITION to preach … Only learning lessons the hard way and sharing them as my life unfold. All the glory goes to God – every ounce of it. On a side note, my dear, YOU have really been a blessing to me. You are a strong woman of God and He is really using you to bring more and more folks to Him.

      1. Yes He IS–and you know what? He doesn’t even keep track of how many “falls”. THAT’S how Good He is.

  2. Blessings Erica,
    Is this ironic or what? I married a girl named Erica when I was young before I had the Lord. And after I found the Lord He put it on my heart to write a book, can you guess what the name of it is? Rock Bottom. God sure has a sense of humor. You should check out my blog and the book God willing. By the way, I love our blog. Many blessings to you and yours.

    1. Whoa .. what a quinky dink!!! I’m now following your blog, too. Looking forward to being blessed by your writing. God is so good! Many thanks, also, for your kind words about the blog. ALL THE GLORY, every ounce of it, goes to Jesus. It’s all to honor Him 🙂

      1. How cute, quinky dink!!! Been a while since I heard that Erica. Pleas allow me to share what the Lord has put on my heart for you. Romans 8:28 says; And God causes all things to work together for the good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. He created all things for He is the Potter and we are the clay, He shapes and molds of us every day. Praise God!!!

      2. I thank God for the opportunity for I give Him all glory, honor, and praise for each and every opportunity He presents me with. He is so awesome Erica, for God blesses those who seek Him diligently. Hallelujah!
        We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:7.

      1. Let’s just say it crossed my mind:) How about this one, Proverbs 11:2- Pride leads to disgrace while humility brings wisdom. And what’s the chance of us both being on the blog spot at the same time, God has me really thinking about this one. Matthew 6:33 says; Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

      1. Indeed, I will do the best of my ability, and by the way my name is Michael. It has been a pleasure to meet you and I live outside of Kansas City, the greatest city for BBQ:)

  3. Lord, I thank you for your Son Jesus Christ who shed His blood on the cross for all our sins. Lord I come before you with a repentant heart asking for your forgiveness. Lord, humbly I enter your throne room with great adoration for the heart you have blessed Erica with, for she is a Proverbs woman and I know that you are shaping and refining her as I speak to you father. Lord I ask that you lift Erica up and give her the words that you want her to pen at all times. Lord I ask that ask that you lift her higher than the wings of eagles, may your Holy Spirit overwhelm her like a rushing mighty wind hallelujah! God give her a new breath every day, give her provision, surround her with your warring angels at all times, open the heavens Father, touch her heart like never before and allow your love to penetrate the deepest parts of her heart. Thank you Father. Give her courage, wisdom, understanding, patience, perseverance, love, gentleness, kindness, self-control, and humility. I pray in the name of your wonderful Son Jesus Christ, Amen!

      1. I don’t know what to say, the Lord just keeps leading me to do these things for you, I’ve never really experienced this before, know what I mean? However, what kind of man would I mean if I didn’t remain obedient to His loving direction. He knows what’s up, yet I have no clue. I am merely a spiritual being having a human experience.

  4. Aww, just thank Him, apart from Him this never would of happened for He led me, may His blessing rain upon you exceedingly abundantly above and beyond your imagination Erica. Sweet dreams.
