My Hope Is In Jesus God Has a Good Plan

My response to Jerry being taken into custody for a probation violation. The incident occurred in Nov. 2013. He has not been able to enter a plea of “not guilty.” However, the state chose to consider just being charged a violation of probation and the state has taken him into custody. This came as a shock as we were told that no action would be taken unless a conviction took place in court. This is why we are so committed to following Jesus. We are still reaping consequences for past sins. God still loves us and is still with us, and He will guide us through this with His mercy and grace and He will be glorified through our lives. We do reap what we sow and that fact is straight from the Bible. Sometimes God will spare us from some of the consequences of sin and sometimes He will allow us to go through refining fires to purify and strengthen our faith. That is my prayer. That our faith is made purer and stronger in Jesus as we go through being apart as husband and wife, father and mother to our children together – and that our walk with the Lord is fortified – and that glory and honor are brought to the Lord through this time of trial and tribulation. All glory and honor and praise belong to Jesus, may You, O LORD be glorified by our lives as we continue to seek You and surrender more and more of our hearts and lives to You.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
