I'm joining Courtney Joseph in her 5th Annual Fall Making Your Home a Haven Challenge. Every year since she has started it I have been involved and I absolutely love it. It's so inspiring to just welcome God into our homes and really focus on Him.




This week's challenge is to buy an extra large candle and light it daily. Place it somewhere that you will notice it often and pray for peace and patience in your home every time you see the flicker of the flame.

I am so excited to start this because here lately my life has been so stressful with so many things going on in just my close family that I've about went insane! Thank God that we can come to Him with all our problems and He just eases our pain and relieves the stress. Sunday night at church during worship service I just let Him have everything. Sometimes stressful things happen and there is nothing we can do to help the situation but pray and that is the best thing that we can do! 

I have my pumpkin spice candle burning and it smells amazing!!! Let's be sure to speak peace and practice patience when speaking to our family this week. Keep a spirit of prayer going constantly. Involve the family in prayer and the different things you are doing. 

Are you lighting your candles this week?
What scent is your favorite Fall scent?
How can I help you pray for your family?

Prayer and Fasting can change things!

Sometimes things just look as though they aren't going to change and it just isn't getting better no matter how hard we try, which is the problem, we can't change it in the natural but by getting a hold of God, He can change our situation. 





We need to speak to our problems and tell them how big our God because He is the answer to all of our problems and needs. He is the Alpha and Omega! The beginning and the End! Somethings can only begin to change when we get on our knees and pray, humbling ourselves and letting God take control our situations. We have to deny our self and our will and let God give us what is His perfect will for our life. The bible also states that fasting and praying together can rid things that prayer alone can't move. We will begin to see change when we pray and fast. He doesn't promise immediate results but in His time it will all work out, God honors persistent prayer!

When we begin to pray demons flee, angels work and God can give us what He desires for us to have but until we deny Self and accept God's will, we can't get true victory!
Start fasting and praying today and see God start working in your life!
Where is God working in your life? I'd love to pray with you!

Be Blessed,

You are Chosen!

We are a chosen people, so special that our Heavenly Father died for us!


How awesome is it to know that we were loved so much that our Father in Heaven died for our sins so that we didn't have to! Isn't that enough to make you get up and have a praise moment right here? When I feel as though life is just passing by and I'm just coasting through, I pull out my Bible and read that I am chosen and loved by an awesome God that knows my every need, problem, want and all that I am. He has everything already taken care, he knows my future and my past. I just wanted to come by and let you all know that even when you feel like you are not important, that you are just here and the kids and hubby doesn't seem to know you exist except when the laundry is dirty and no food is cooked, God does and He is waiting for you to just lean on him! Take sometime to just reach out in prayer and let God give you the rest and comfort you need! He chose us to be His own and will love us with an everlasting love! Hallelujah! 


Be Blessed,

Why I Did Away with Facebook

Thanks for coming by! You can connect here and be apart of a community striving for happier homes and marriages. You can subscribe via email on the right hand side of this page so you don't miss a single post or follow me on Pinterest www.pinterest.com/silligurl91Come back anytime!

You know those long hours wasted on social media that you long to get back but just can't and how every time you plan to do something productive you always find yourself drawn back to check your Facebook and twitter?



I have been praying for direction as to where to go with this blog this year and I have been away on a little break trying to adjust my schedule to what the Lord wants of me. As you all know in December I gave birth to a beautiful little girl and over the last few months I have been seeking God to be a better mother to her and a better wife to my husband that God blessed me with. I have also been praying that He would lay on my heart encouragement to give to others who is battling things I can help them with. Facebook took up a lot of my time that I really should have been putting towards God and my family.  I wasn't on there doing anything wrong so say but it was taking my presence from where I really needed to be. 

So I wanted everyone to know why for now and maybe forever that I have deactivated my Facebook personal page and blog page. So I do hope to still see you here and I will keep my pinterest open so that you can connect with me there and share my post with others. Sometimes we just let technology rule our lives even though we don't mean too and it can really take away from who we really are. 

So this is my challenge for you: Please be in prayer for me as to know what direction to go with this blog this year and spend more time off the internet and more with your family.


May God bless you,

Trusting God When Times are Hard

Thanks for coming by! You can connect here and be apart of a community striving for happier homes and marriages.

Hello to all my wonderful readers! 
The past 6 weeks have been such a test for me, a test of my trust in God that no matter how uncertain everything may seem in my eyes that in His eyes it is exactly what He had planned for me. My baby girl was born on December 11th with very bad Acid Reflux and it literally had me to the point of desperation. I just wanted her better and I was doing all I could all the while in prayer for God to intervene. She is doing so much better and even though she has moments where she is still spitting up it isn't as bad. She had lost down from 8lbs 2ozs to 7lbs in 2 weeks but after a month of AR formula she is 9lbs and 6ozs. It killed me to know I had to cease breastfeeding but when it was in the best interest of my baby God held me through it. 

After that trial another one hit, After months of my husband being unemployed, he got called to work about 3 hours from home which means he has to be gone for weeks and maybe months at a time. I'm happy he has found a job because in this economy it's very hard but it is hard for me because I hate being away from him. God opened a door for us to get a travel trailer so we will be able to go visit days at a time and won't have to spend tons of money on hotel rooms. It always seems that even when we become undone and worried God is there to comfort us and let us know He has it under control. 

I never once let my trust fail in God, even when it seemed I was at my breaking point God was there for me. Isn't it wonderful to have a Savior that cares for us even when we are undeserving and don't feel worthy of His love and mercy? I want to encourage you, if you feel like you are at your wits-end and feel like you can't take any more just hit your knees and let God comfort you and lead you in the right direction. His answers may not be what we think is best and it may not come when we want it but it's always in His perfect timing. 

When things get rough how has God guided you? What are somethings that God worked out for you when you just couldn't see answers?


Be Blessed,



Regina Cozad
