Lady Jane Grey, An Example of Faith -and a Giveaway-


 Have you gone through hard providences? Were you raised by stiff parents who abused you emotionally and maybe even physically? Has you heart become hardened and bitter?

Today at Women of the Reformation, I share about Lady Jane Grey, a woman who suffered hard providences, and was raised by stiff parents who even abused her. However, she was grounded in the Word of God in such a way that she "stood firmly, facing death, not with a bitter heart against her earthly father, or against the Queen, but with her eyes fixed on Eternity, on Jesus Christ. Her heart had not been set on earthly treasures but on the things that are not from this world; and her hope did not rest in her actions, but on the saving work of Jesus Christ."

Please, come over at Heavenly Springs with me, and be encouraged to "see how this woman understood that God is Sovereign over all circumstances, and how this understanding helped her to learn contentment while seeing God’s hand over her circumstances no matter how difficult they might be."

I will be giving away a wonderful book, Feminine Threads: Women in the Tapestry of Christian History by Diana Lyn Severance,   if you want your name "thrown in the hat", please leave a comment (over at the original post at Heavenly Springs) to let me know that you are interested. International entries ok.  Winners will be announced next week at the conclusion of our series.

Have a most blessed Saturday, my friends,

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
