No More List

"He’s making his list and checking it twice…gonna find out who is naughty or nice."

I don’t know about you, but as a kid, I think I thought that was the way God worked too.  I thought he was writing down all of my sins and keeping them in a folder to be used against me at a later date.

I'm thankful that God doesn't work like Santa. 

The bible says, God keeps no record of wrongs. (1 Corinthians 13:5)

It’s hard to wrap your brain around the idea that God loves you just the way you are, worts and all.   I have found one of the best explanations about this depth of God's love in this children's Bible I read to my kids.

The Jesus Storybook Bible describes God's love as: “Never ending, unstoppable, never giving up, un-breaking, always, and forever love.”

Never "just a"

If you’ve ever thought, you’re too small to change a big problem, this woman’s story will change your mind.

She never had a case of the “just-a’s”, referring to herself as “just-a-mom” or “just-a-housewife”.

Susana Trimarco was “just-a” normal everyday housewife in Argentina. She didn’t pay a lot of attention to the news until one day her daughter left for a doctor’s appointment and never came back.

Susana did what any mother would do, she searched for her daughter, Veron.  She didn’t think the police were doing enough, so she started her own investigation.  She discovered her 23 year-old daughter had been abducted and sold into slavery.  So, she started visiting brothers searching for her.

What began as “just a mom” searching for her daughter, has developed into a movement.   She has rescued more than 900 young women, and she has put bad guys on trial .

She’s still looking for her daughter, Veron, so it would be amazing if you could pray for her to be found.  She says she won’t stop until she does.

A woman who was “just-a” housewife has now been was nominated for the Women of Courage award by the US and for the Nobel Peace Prize.

You’re never “just-a”…
