No More Joy Stealing!

I don't know about you, but I am so sick of hearing about politics.  I do not mean to be naive and act like the issues are unimportant, really I don't, but I am just not convinced ranting on Facebook or bashing people has ever solved any problems.  Last week I had a BLEH week and I finally realized that Facebook had really worn me down.  The hatred spewed and the hopelessness that people kept spreading completely stole my joy.  I LET it steal my joy.  No more!

Oh friends, do not think for one moment that I do not care how you feel or that I do not hurt when you hurt, but there has JUST got to be a better way.  We cannot allow our insistence of our rights to trump the rights of others.  I choose not to be a part of the negativity.  We need to love more and hate less.  God calls us to more.

I choose to trust God and keep my eyes on Him!  None of what is happening in the world has escaped His notice or is outside of His plan.

Don't believe me?  Pick up a Bible and read it!

So funny thing, as I pondered this post prior to writing it, I was also involved in some serious cleaning and purging.  You know, my whole 34 Weeks of Clean project?!  (Yes, I do what I assign people, I assure you!)  During that purging I found THREE amazing Bibles (aren't they all)  that I have reviewed and now have sitting around as extras, not being used.  Trust me when I say this family is surrounded by Bibles.  Except my Bible, which strangely disappeared in December, but that is a whole different post that is too hard to even write about at the moment.

So for the next three weeks, we are giving away those Bibles for someone else to enjoy!  If you know someone who would be blessed by one, enter!  If your Bible is falling apart from all the love, enter!  If you don't know about Jesus and want to, enter!  Share the word and let's turn social media around with something more lasting than the worries of today!

God has got this!

So we have a Children's Bible, a Family Devotional Bible, and a Women's Journaling Bible.  You are welcome to enter all three weeks!

Let's start with The Beginner's Bible!  Enter below and we will announce the winner next week, as well as show you the next one up!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Happy February friends!  May you be blessed with the Lord's love above all! 


  1. We really like our Beginner's Bible so much that it's been well loved and I was thinking of replacing it. I want my children to learn how much God loves them unconditionally and that they can love him too.

  2. We have been wonderfully blessed by God with eight children.

  3. I am so with you about all of the hatred going around on Facebook and other social media lately. The "hide" and "unfollow" button have become my favorites. Blessings!

  4. Thanks for the Bible giveaway. I want children to learn to have the faith that obeys God immediately like so many of His servants in the Bible; but I also want them to know that when they make a mistake (sin), they can repent and start again.


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
