Welcome to My Blog

Greetings and welcome to my blog! My name is Lyndsay Lambert, and my heart's desire is for this blog to be an encouragement to younger women, as Paul directed in Titus 2:3-5.

Forgiving the Unforgivable

UnforgiveableHave you ever been hurt by a person so badly that, try as you might, you just couldn’t forgive? I mean totally forgive, so that the relationship is no longer broken.

A definition of forgiveness that I have found is: ceasing to feel resentment for wrongs and offenses; pardon involving restoration of broken relationships.

Why is it we like to complain? Do we just want people to feel sorry for us? . . . or to see if we can convince others to side with us?

I believe that most of us think complaining is not a big deal, just a little sin with little consequence. In BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) we are studying the life of Moses this year. That has taken us into the book of Numbers, and it is very clear in several chapters that God was seriously displeased by the complaining of the Israelites and there were major consequences. Let’s have a look:Continue Reading
