Storms and Goodness.

We have been in non-stop planning mode lately for Kansas Barn Sale.
Hundreds of emails.
Thousands of shoppers from all over the country.
We know we're doing the right thing. We feel it. We continually try to put God first.
We want to shine His light on this slice of Kansas America.
We want to help support artists and small businesses.

But... it's funny how oppression comes when you're rising up.
Haters. Knock-offs. Struggles. Nay-sayers. Bringer-downers... (pretty sure that's a phrase. The opposite would be lifter-uppers. Naturally.)
Stress. Requests. Beggars. Storms.

This morning I saw this quote:
Your dream is the goal God is leading you with. The opposition you feel is confirmation you're on track! Press thru. BE BIGGER & GO! - Sandi Krakowski

I love how God sends simple reminders at exactly the right moment.
I needed to see that.

And yesterday my dear friend Nichole released a new song that I can't stop listening to.
Favorite line: "Some storms will claim you. Some will rename you." Wow!
I keep stretching my arms high, praying Oh God, be my rescue.

I hope you get a chance to listen to the song in the video.
I hope if lifts you up!
Because in this life, we're meant to be lifter-uppers.

this is amazing, thank you for the post. God is amazing said...

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to Whom be glory for ever and ever, Amen. Gal. 1:3-5 This is the verse we are memorizing in the young mom's Bible study. He is the Rescuer! When times are awful we trust Him!
Praying for this weekend!!
