online meanderings

God's grace in menopause (and no, that's not a hint). This is excellent, especially the 5 points at the end.

Strength in suffering - What it looks like to boast in Christ's sufficiency. Read it all if you love good writing.

5 lessons learned from a flood - On losing precious papers: "There is great joy in letting them go and trusting that the Creator and Restorer of all things will remember them."

Operation Christmas Child - Yup, it's time. Wendy gives some fantastic hints from someone who's been there, done that. And here's a detailed list of what to put in your box, from someone who works in the box processing centre.

Stop telling everyone how busy you are

Why I'm still not reading "50 shades of grey" - The impact of erotic fiction and pornography.

The entire history of the world on one chart - Amazing. A great teaching aid.
Contentment doesn’t mean I, or my suffering friends, am supposed to muster up a warm glow about all my circumstances, but it does mean that I am to live knowing that I am equipped, through Christ, to deal with them, and more, to do good in them. Ali, reflecting on Wendy Alsup

We want to know God’s will for our lives, especially when it comes to major life-ordering decisions. But interestingly, when we go to the Scripture for insight on discerning His will, we don’t find a lot about things to do, places to go, or people to meet. That’s because God’s will is not so much a place, a job, or a specific mate as it is a heart and a lifestyle. Nancy Leigh Demoss
