His grace is sufficient....

I heard something yesterday and it really had an impact on me.
It was one of those, "ouch that hurts!" moments but then it made me laugh.

God won't give you grace for things you make up

 I thought to myself, wow that is true. I could spend my entire day playing the "what if" game. 
That thought could consume me, drive me crazy and rob me of the joy in life.
There are days I have let my "what if's" rule and even on the days where I didn't spend the entire day playing that game, a good portion of my thoughts still traveled there.
I could worry myself into a frenzy.

What if something happens to Trevor on his way to work?
What if Jack falls and hurts himself so bad I have to rush to the ER?
What if my parents get into a car accident?
What if I don't get pregnant ever again?
Would I adopt?
What if I get pregnant and lose the baby again?
What if we have another baby and it's born with problems?
What if finances get worse?
What if?
What if?

What kind of life is that?  I feel like God sometimes wants to shout GET A GRIP LADY!
There is no possible way that you can be fruitful if you live life like that.

 How is God supposed to really use someone who plays that game. It's such a trap. It's so unhealthy and it keeps you stuffed in a box barely able to breathe instead of swallowing big giant gulps of life!

I heard that quote and in true form, I heard a couple songs with a similar theme and then my devotions were around this same topic.

I think God was trying to tell me something.

I heard you.

Let it go Krystle.

Let me.
Let me worry about those things for you.
Let me take care of you.
Trust me.

Do you trust me?
Do you TRUST me?

Show me


God is so patient. I think I have put Him on this "God shelf" lately and figured that He was God and He'd do whatever He wanted and my "issues" were a separate matter.
I know better. But I found myself in this spot.

Oh Jesus
 Thank you
Thank you for loving me and caring about all those little spots in my life.
The ones I think are insignificant to you.
Thanks for the gentle smack upside the head
I needed it


  1. I found your blog at CSAHM listing. I too have struggled in this area...worry and the "what if's". I am working on myself in this area. My second was born with Down Syndrome and I have learned how amazing God is and that he always gives you exactly what you need :-)

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
