Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

Can you hear me Lord?

The LORD is righteous in all His ways, gracious in all His works…. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.  Psalm 145:17,19

Do you sometimes wonder if the Lord hears your prayers, or feel like your cries for help are blocked by the ceiling of the room you’re praying from?  I too get discouraged when my prayers go unanswered.  We need to first recognize that this discouragement comes from Satan and that he is trying to get us to doubt Gods love for us and His sovereignty over all.  We need to stay focused on the many promises that God has made in his Word, like the promise God makes in Psalm 145:17, 19 – He WILL (emphasis mine) fill the desire of those who fear Him; He also WILL (emphasis mine) hear their cry and save them.  When you think about this it is REALLY good news for those who love and fear the Lord.  I do believe God will answer any prayer as long as long as it fits into the plan He has for our lives.  If we pray for something and it seems our prayer goes unanswered it was not in God’s plan or timing.  God’s plans are more glorious than anything we could imagine and He works for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28).  So if God seems silent that doesn’t mean his answer is “no”,  It could mean “not yet”, or “I have something even better planned for you”.  Stay in Gods Word and stay encouraged.

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
