"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Thursdays Before the Throne

I will...transform the Valley of Achor
(Trouble) into a gateway of hope.”
Hosea 2:15

Then they raised over him a great heap of stones,
still there to this day.
So the LORD turned from the fierceness of His anger.
Therefore the name of that place has been called the Valley of Achor (Trouble) to this day.”
Joshua 7:26

In the Valley of Trouble,
a door of hope was opened.

Sin was judged.
It is the same with me today.
My sin was judged on Calvary……Jesus bore it all!
That is where my hope lies!

My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
but wholly lean on Jesus' name.

His oath, His covenant, His blood
support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand;
all other ground is sinking sand.
