A Comforting Word


I have a rock that I keep on the windowsill beyond my desk and laptop. It's my Ebenezer stone so that every time I look at it, I recall the help that God has given me in times past. It helps to reinforce my trust that He will continue to help me in the days and years ahead. 

Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far the Lord has helped us." 
1 Samuel 7:12

If you're expecting ice or other bad weather this weekend, stay safe!

  1. Dear Bess, I remember you sharing about your Ebenezer stone and the scripture, your testimony of God's goodness to you in the past and your trust in Him in the coming days. Joining with you in prayer for those experiencing or expecting bad weather. There is the possibility of a strong surge of seawater on the east coast of England which could cause flooding. Residents of two coastal towns have been asked to evacuate their homes. Other areas are experiencing heavy snow and ice. God bless you Bess.

    1. Hi Alex! Yes, He is! I hadn't thought of that but it's another reason to have my rock on the windowsill. I hope you won't be in harm's way in your part of England. Oh dear :O) ... I'm afraid I escape with a book more than I should, but I do find great enjoyment in reading. Might be finishing The Market Square by Miss Read tonight, if I don't get too sleepy. Blessings, Bess

    These writings are a balm to my heart tonight.

Dear Readers, comments are moderated. Negative or unkind comments will be read but not published.

If I have a reply, I will leave it below your comment (as opposed to going to your own blog, which I cannot always do) or I might leave a joint reply on my post.

Sorry for the rules, but after years of blogging I find them helpful. However, I am very grateful for all my lovely visitors!

May God richly bless you,
Bess
