She Shares Truth: Psalm 130

(via)

Hi, Friends! I hope that this week has been a great one for you. I am a big fan of She Reads Truth. If you haven't heard of it definitely go check it out. This lenten season they are asking readers to take a text on Fridays and write their own post about it. Here is mine:

Text: Psalm 130

When I first read this Psalm I realized that it was exactly where I had been. I've shared before that last year was a tough year for me. I was dealing with medical issues and major stress at work and it all turned me into a not-so-happy-person. 

I cannot even begin to count the times that I have called yelled out to God for His mercy. I needed it and it seemed so hard to find. There was a tremendous depth to my cries. They were as deep as my pain. I kept waiting. I wish I could say that I did it gracefully or even patiently. No, I did it with a pout. Then stubborn soul that I am went in sat in my corner and said, "If God wanted to save me, He would just do it." 

Praise the Lord for His grace. His mercy. His redemption. His healing. His ability to save. 

Dear friends, He will save us. He will redeem us. He will rescue us. His mercy is great. His love, oh His love, is deep. Deeper than our pain. Deeper than our heartache. Deeper than our minds can fathom or our souls imagine. 

Do not lose hope in your journey. Jesus came to save us and He succeeded. We have redemption through His blood. He loves us. No matter what is going on or how we are acting. He loves us.

    "Dear friends, He will save us. He will redeem us. He will rescue us. His mercy is great. His love, oh His love, is deep. Deeper than our pain. Deeper than our heartache. Deeper than our minds can fathom or our souls imagine."

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
