God’s Faithful Rainbow During My Darkest Days

One dark stormy day God delighted me with an unexpected gift of beauty and encouragement. I was driving alone in our old battered tank-like truck when fear, like the heavy rain that fell from the blacks clouds, washed over me. I searched the heavens and cried out to God for relief from the circumstances that were controlling my life. Immediately my eyes were drawn to the eastern sky where the most radiant rainbow I have ever seen appeared among the {Read More}

About Ginny Holcombe

First of all I am a daughter of the King! My relationship with Jesus is the best and most important part of my life. I’m a mother of 3 and grandmother of 7. I’m also a sister, aunt, mother-in-law, and friend. I can’t leave out Cinnamon, my Jack Russell/Basenji who touches me daily with love, companionship, and laughter. Not to mention ideas for my blog! God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve Him as a ministry assistant and receptionist at Porter Memorial Baptist Church. This gives me the opportunity to encourage and assist people from all walks of life and I’m thankful for the opportunity to see Him at work among His church. I am a woman who has been broken by life and circumstances but made whole by my relationship with Jesus Christ. My deepest desire is to use the gifts of writing and speaking to encourage women to cultivate a deeply intimate relationship with Jesus and to allow the Holy Spirit to guide them through each day. I enjoy sharing the lessons He brings to my life on my blog: butterflyginny.blogspot.com and my Facebook page, Gazing at Jesus. I’m thankful to be given the opportunity to share what God is teaching me on MMCW. I pray that His love, grace, and mercy will touch you every day.

The Choice is Yours – Walking in the Spirit

Moses and the people of Israel stood on the edge of the Promised Land. Moses recalled the covenant God had made with the people and declared a series of blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience (see Deuteronomy 28-30).

Moses exhorted, “Therefore, choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the LORD your God, obeying his voice and holding fast {Read More}

Daily Reminders of the Faith that Sustains Me

When I moved into my apartment I wanted new pictures to reflect this fresh start in my life. I found several that are daily reminders of the faith that sustains me: The only spot I couldn’t seem to fill was over my bed, a simple frame with no headboard. I had a long empty wall to use as a canvas and I wanted an image that would impact my thoughts as I fell asleep. I searched high and low, literally. {Read More}
