He Is With Me...

"And behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of." - Genesis 28:15 (Bullinger's Companion Bible)

My birthday has come and gone with greetings, gifts and good food, but the best part of it was God's Word (above) that was given to me. His promise that He will not leave me and is with me always and wherever I go. The promise of His eternal devotion and support with one year left to go on my Exit Wilderness Project. Amazing words and an enlightening promise by the One who gave life to me and has allowed me to journey through to this point in time.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the promises You make and never break. Thank You for staying with me even when I was walking on the wrong path. Thank You for such a blessed birthday. In Jesus' Name, Amen


  1. Happy belated birthday, Paula. I counted about eight candles! :-)


  2. Happy Belated Birthday and welcome back online! You've been missed.

    What a precious photo!!

    Blessings and peace!

  3. Hi Paula,
    I enjoyed browsing through your blog, read your Exit Wilderness Project thoughts... and here's wishing you a great 39th year of life!

    Your EW Project sounds so exciting. Your 40th year is indeed something to look forward to.

    Thank you for visiting my blog site.

    What a lovely mother-daughter picture!

  4. By grace you will make it through to the end of your "exit wilderness project." At 43, I'm still working on my exit; I think, perhaps, that might come at the end of my life. I think life here to be a bit of a wilderness/desert experience. Until we see our Father as he is, thus our final perfection in a single moment, life walks as incomplete.

    But it's coming for all of us. That's the day I am longing for.

    Thanks, Paula, for checking in over at the blog. You are welcome there anytime.

    Have a blessed and restful weekend.
