You have crossed a bridge. Reach not back. Move on ahead and press into the fullness of all I have prepared for you. It is waiting for you to step forward and receive. Do not tarry, and do not question, neither allow doubts to enter your mind. Your heart may cry out and rebel, but if you will return to Me in those moments, I will give you My peace. I send you no place except as I have gone before.

Hey Cori,
I knew there was a reason I checked my blog, just now...Life has been very interesting for me, this last week. I had to make a choice, do I teach a lesson, or hand it over, to the One who can...I chose the later... I catch myself, wandering back, and wanting to set someone on her ear, but then, stop, and wait... Nope, not a lesson for me to teach...
Thanks for the Word...

Reminds me of the verse about "do not call to mind the former things...I'm doing something new" I think it's in Isaiah...

Cori darling, such beauty in words. I must say I like the new dress your blog is wearing so pink and lovely. Your blog is a delightful place to visit, thank you for the time you take to offer such a delight for our eyes.

Darling, time is scarce of late with everything I have on my plate; so if I don’t make it to your blog often, please forgive me. I so appreciate your unconditional visits and kind comments…you are a dear friend. Take care darling and have a marvelous week.

Love & Hugs
Duchess

Hi Barb,
I wasn't sure why I posted this today so it must have been especially for you ;-). Trust Him to take care of the details.

God bless,
Cori

Perfect. My faith in the Resurrection was tested this weekend when I learned of a dear old friend's passing. What a gift to those left on earth when the one leaving was a true believer.

Cori...I have snagged this quote and passed this information on to others about this book...I have a brother who is Bi-polar..and deales with depression and disillusionment so often..I am hoping to get him to read this book.
His life is a vast wasteland of trying to "overachieve and impress others "... and he has made a mess of things..he is 75 years old..now..is broke... and can't find a job.
