Predicaments (by Scot Thigpen)

Men, do you like getting yourselves into predicaments? Most of us don’t. We’ll do whatever steps are necessary in order to stay in control of our lives; especially in the area of our finances. Are you able to trust the Lord with some areas of your life but have trouble trusting Him with your financial affairs? Are you willing to trust Him to save you from eternal damnation but won’t trust Him with your checkbook? Do you come up with a good plan B before venturing out into the unknown where the Lord may be calling you? But where is the faith in our self-formulated plan Bs? The Christian life is a life of faith on which we completely trust in the Lord for all of life and for our eternal future.

The man of pseudo faith will fight for his verbal creed but refuse flatly to allow himself to get into a predicament where his future must depend upon that verbal creed being true. What we need very badly these days is a company of Christians who are prepared to trust God as completely now as they know they must do at the last days. – A.W. Tozer

If we believe like we say we do, then we clearly should have the faith to trust the Lord to guide our paths daily. We say we are trusting Him for our eternal future. But what about today? What about tomorrow?

I’m Lisa Rippy, a happily married woman to my wonderful Rip. We have 5 children and we live right outside of Madison, MS. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a love for all things “homey” from decorating, simplifying, remodeling, organizing and simply turning a house into a "Home Sweet Home." My passion is helping families live the life they long for in the interior of their hearts and homes. It all requires thought, planning and work that Rip and I both love to do! But if there is anything at all I can do to help you and your home life, please reach out to me. Nothing would thrill me more than to inspire YOUR heart and home!
