Denise said...

Right now, I am praising the Lord through lovebugs health problems, my health problems, and financial problems. Let satan throw whatever he chooses our way, we will continue to sing, and shout praises to our Father.

Love it! I actually have that same crock pot {it's great for travel when taking food to an event}. My choice would be the lamp! Have a great day!
Wylie

Wylie @ Shout A Joyful Noise! said...

Ok, and as for an extra entry. Life itself right now with this unstable economy & the everyday insanity our business is is enough to make you want to stay in the bed & surrender {according to the enemy}. But, my husband & I are trusting the LORD as provider & sustainer & praising Him through every circumstance. Believing Him more than ever, loving Him more than I knew I even could. He is God and He is good. Always & in all ways. So, I will swim in the deep because He'll be next to me & Hallelujah anyhow!!!!!

Oohhh, I think I'd love to win dish in the middle... with Paula's name on it... lol

I remember a time. We'd just been through 6 jobs in 4 years all paying thousands than our living expenses. Some of the jobs had taken him away from home for 60-72 hours a week. David had finally gotten a decent job... an hour away from home. We were trying to sell our house. It had been over a year since we had put it on the market. David was driving 2 hours round trip each day as we waited for our house to sell. I was weary of having it "show ready" with 5 kids living at home. We were traveling back and forth to church to the town that David was working in. We knew eventually we would be living there so we wanted to get as plugged in as possible to make the transition easier for the kids.

To tell you the truth after the previous 4 years I was mentally and physically exhausted. I was beginning to lose hope... struggling to find anything good that God could be about... it had been a long, hard season...

One Sunday morning we made the 1 hour drive. In the middle of worship, they began to play the song "Blessed Be Your Name". I knew I had to stand up and declare something I did not feel. As I stood singing the words the tears poured down my face. Somehow, someway when I could not see any evidence of anything good... I would continue to say, "Blessed Be Your Name...

I found a new resolve that day to continue on... believing that He was about good things.

Nineteen months our house was on the market... and when it finally sold I could see timing was everything..

Thanks for this opportunity, Karen!

Blessings to you Karen, What a thoughtful thing to you but that isn't a surprise to me. I love all three but especially like the middle-covered casserole dish. Since I'm a follower-that counts as two entries. Yippee! Have a wonderful week dear friend.

What a great idea....put me down for the crockpot. I have never heard of the website. I will check it out.

Blessings,
Tammy

Finally Free said...

Praising God Anyhow is a way of life for me.... I have had chronic fatigue on and off for twenty years. It is getting better recently. Praise God! Somehow I could make it to church most of the time and praise Him.

Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments on my blogs.

Blessings,
Tammy

Cathy said...

That is so sweet of you, Karen. I would like the slow cooker. Thank you.

Cathy said...

I remember praising God and writing music anyway when I lost a job that I loved once. Then I found some other good ones. Praise the Lord!

“praising the Lord regardless”

When our son was very sickly and the Dr.'s said they could do nothing else for him. Actually that was when I hit rock bottom, had no where to look but up and I became a Christian through it all. Although our son still has some health problems, he is still with us and is a mighty Christian warrior.

karen hopkins said...

I am like you, Karen, in having more than one crock pot.. Thats what I would love to have, too. I am going to post a blurb about you, and Hallelujah Anyway in a few minutes - all about never meeting a stranger when connected to the Lord.. You will never be a stranger to my blog, or to my heart- you encourage me deeply, and I hope you realize that, sister.. Love you.. thanks for the chance to win this awesome display of Gods heart, from yours.

karen hopkins said...

Praising in the Storm is often when health issues hit me out of the blue. I have been surrounded by physical limitations over the last few months, and though I wanted to give up many, many times, I rememeber the times that Jesus might have wanted to give up, as He hung on the Cross for my sin. So, even in the hard times of not having enough air to breathe, or energy to stand, I remember my Jesus hanging there in pain, because of His greater Love for me, and all people, and that allows me to refocus, and see that even when the storms are brewing physically, emotionally, or spiritually, our Lord took it all on Himself, because of seeing how very much He loves me, and you.

karen hopkins said...

Just wanted to say I posted a blog just now about the giveaway, and your blogsite, dear friend.. Jesus never met a stranger, and I am glad you are not one either.. love ya!

Joan said...

Andrea said...

Karen, what an incredible giveaway!!! I would love to win the crock pot. I have an old one that does not compare to the one you've shown!

God bless you for your loving, selfless heart!

Andrea

Andrea said...

God is good and faithful! How can I not praise Him through the not-so-easy times of my life? Because He is faithful and with me through every hazy season of my life, I praise Him though my body is not 100%. I give Him glory, even though we are at a new crossroads. I say, "Lord, you are my strength though I am weak."

Thanks you, dear friend, for this opportunity to express thanks to God today.

Love,

Andrea

Andrea said...

Karen, I subscribed to your feed, and I will mention your giveaway on fb.

You are a jewel of a woman of God to be so generous!

Gwen said...

Melvin and I were at David and Earlene's last night and she had this exact crockpot. She loves it and I decided I wanted one, too. Perfect for taking to church suppers..so, maybe,just maybe...this one will land in my kitchen!

Nel said...

Yep no one can ever have to many crock pots! I was just thinking the last time I was in Arkansas, that mine was getting old, and I would be so lost without it. So yep the crock-pot it is. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

until next time... nel

Nel said...

Just subscribed to your RSS Feed. So count me in again for the crockpot! Thanks girl!

Wowzers! The CROCK POT!
I'm already a subscriber so that doesn't count ;) BUT I will hit facebook and twitter for you!

Thank you for SUCH a great giveaway! Don't forget I have the Bible giveaway on my blog until April 30!!!

Love you!!

Almost forgot--praising HIM ANYHOW--today! Went for my lab results on cholesterol--which they were GOOD---but the NEW insurance I have since being unemployed (housewife/speaker/writer/helper to my husband), didn't pay a dime on my meds :(. BUT I praise GOD Anyhow because HE supplies all my needs and blesses me with AWESOME friends and family! ;)
