My attempt at organization. :)

I found my charm bracelet while cleaning my room today. It stirred my heart. I paused my chores and hunted a bible. I thought it laying on verses would provide a pretty picture.

God is so good. The first picture was not planned. I flipped it toward the middle, layed the bracelet down, and took the photo. It was after that I noticed what verses it lay on. :)

This verse in Hebrews came to mind, so this shot was more "staged."

I have no doubt that I have faith. Jesus in the author and finisher of my faith, so its not of me. Its easier to believe its there without flaw knowing its from and controlled and grown in His hands.

Its my faithfulness that needs a work out.

My faithfulness to the seemingly little things:

-daily quiet time in His word
-hugging and kissing my children
-loving myself as He loves me
-letting go daily
-NOT yelling
-chores and decluttering
-accepting opportunities to be a blessing
-refusing to be negative, no matter how satisfying it is in the moment
-serving my home and children like I serve in the world... daily
-lead my children to Him daily as we wait for a godly man to lead us
-skating for Him and not my glory
-believing Him and the wisdom He reveals to me... in every moment.


  1. This is beautiful, Kendra. God's faithfulness is sure; it's our faithfulness that needs work. But God has started that work - and He will be faithful to see it completed. :)

    Many blessings and Happy New Year!

  2. Yes, Jesus in the author and finisher of our faith. Great blog!

  4. Kendra,

    My faithfulness too needs some work, praise God that He is always faithful even when we are not, He is our rock and our foundation the author and the finishner, and I know Kendra, that you make Him smile.

  6. Hi Kendra,

    I stopped by to visit your blog this morning, and received a blessing! :)

    I love you list of faithfulness; when I have genuine trust and faith, it allows me to believe that God is true and trustworthy and can be relied upon completely. Faith gives us the assurance that God is able to fulfill all His promises, and it builds confidence, permitting us to place our life in God’s care for safekeeping. :)

    Blessings and hugs,
