Hello and thank you for visiting my blog!
Writing is a joy to me and this site was developed to share my experiences and God's Word as I live "In the Midst" of this world and "In the Midst" of God's sovereignty.
Merriam-Webster defines the word "midst" as: the interior or central part or point, a position of proximity to the members of a group, the condition of being surrounded, a period of time about the middle of a continuing act or condition
Isn't it wonderful to know that in the troubles that this life can bring to each of us that we have a God who stands in proximity with us? Through this life we can choose to make Him the central part or point of our lives? With an intimate relationship with Him we can face the most difficult circumstances known to humans with surety of mind and peace in the heart that we are never alone and we are always loved.
1 Thessalonians 3:7-8 NLT: So we have been greatly encouraged in the midst of our troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives us new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord
Expanding on this:
What is more awesome than to see a woman or man in Christ standing firm during times of hardship and times of peace. As those around witness such an event as it unfolds, it can bring encouragement and a renewed sense of life in others. We all experience hardships - no one tells us we will not. In fact we are told in scripture that we will! Therefore let us strive to be strong in our faith and to connect with brothers and sisters in Christ, developing a steadfast friendship that goes beyond this life and extends into eternity.
