  • Welcome!

    I am a wife, mom of 2 beautiful children and daughter of my Heavenly Father. God has taken me through some amazing journeys. With each challenge I have learned more about His amazing Love and Grace. Take some time out of your busy, hectic day and join me as we sit in the Calm of God's Presence.

Begin Go “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Isaiah 43:19 This is my verse to live by for the year… I’ve looked for the “new thing” all year. On some days it’s been far away off in the distance…my hand has reached for it but […]

    I so love your words and your heart and this beautiful place you have online. You are right, when we trust, He directs. I’m right beside you journeying into a new place with Him…scared and brave. Blessings to you today!ReplyCancel

    Mary – love the Allume pics! Are you going this year?! I can’t believe it is less than 3 months away. I too am working through some things on this journey with God – but seriously so very grateful to have such a wonderful tribe of Godly women around me as I do!ReplyCancel

    Kristin~ Yes I’m going again this year & can’t wait to see how God is going to move! Last year He met me personally where I was hurting. I know He is going to use that pain & growth to minister to other women. Hope to have a chance to meet you at Allume this year!ReplyCancel

Go I sit quietly…I rush around…I care for children…I clean house… All throughout my day I dream & catch snippets of a dream God is placing in my heart, and it skips a beat with excitement. And then, sometimes just as quickly as it came it fades. I seem to lose it in the busyness […]

    Hi, Mary! Welcome back to FMF! We’re FMF neighbors today. :)

    Yes, yes, yes! If the Lord leads us to it, He will be faithful to help us finish it. It’s easy to fall into the “I can’t do that” trap, but we need to remember that we have the Lord Almighty by our sides.ReplyCancel

    Like you, I am so encouraged when I remember that He is the One Who helps us to finish the race He has called us to. May we trust Him all the way to the finish! Blessings!ReplyCancel

    It’s easy to get lost in the business of any given day, but what I know is that the dreams that God wants you to realize won’t get lost. He will remind you of those things. :) Happy Friday!ReplyCancel

    • Mary@thecalmofhispresenceJuly 26, 2014 - 6:26 am

      Mollie, you are so right. He does remind me of the dreams He gives me. I love it when in the simplest moment He reminds me of the dream. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyCancel

    really is a bit mindboggling how we link finishing with either success… or failure… and how sometimes it is one or the other while sometimes it is both or neither.ReplyCancel

    • Mary@thecalmofhispresenceJuly 26, 2014 - 6:28 am

      Richelle thanks for stopping by. Great reminder that success or failure isn’t ours to judge but God’s to judge. He knows where our finish line is.ReplyCancel

Music and voices filled the air around me. My hands held loosely to a book with words and notes that melted together in one big blur. Unconsciously my voice sang words of praise to God but inside my heart I screamed, “I don’t want to praise you. I am hurt. I am angry. I can’t […]
