    • So glad that you were encouraged Venus! You are right, our dark times teach us lean on the Lord and walk by faith. Blessings to you.

  2. Great devotional, Angie! Thanks for the reminder that we shine brightest when it is the darkest. God bless!

  3. Angie…that was EXACTLY what I needed to read this morning. I came home from a discouraging medical appointment, cried, and then found your post. Thank you so much for being obedient in your ministry to the chronically ill. Perfect timing!

    • Dear Linda, you encouraged me more than you know today. I thank God for His perfect timing that always blows my mind. HE is amazing! May God bless you and comfort you. Psalm 3:3

  4. Dear Angi,
    I loved reading your devotional, and I’m looking forward to reading your books!! I also am from Texas…College Station.
    Thank you for your love for Jesus and a ministry to the hurting, in the midst of your pain. It is glorifying our Lord❤️

    • Thank you Linda. Your encouragement is a blessing! We used to live a few miles from College Station in the small town of Brenham. I have many family members that are TAMU graduates. I hope the books bless you. They were all God’s idea, so HE receives ALL the glory!
      Blessings to you from one Texan sister to another 😉

  5. Angi, I just loved your devotional, not only for the perspective that you brought us, but the lovely visual images you gave us.
    I love the Az sky at night too! I had the opportunity for 9 yrs to go there on mission trips on the Reservation. We said the same thing, how amazing the Stars look, and how dark the night was, it only made the stars that much more Clear and bright. I had forgotten that, as its been a while since I could go. So thank you for refreshing that memory and a bit of sweet JOY of that time, back to me. God bless. Di

    • Diane, thank you! What a blessing that you were able to to spend 9 years on a mission trip in Arizona. Glad I could bring back some memories. It was hard for us to leave t after 6 days. I even felt better there. Blessings to you.

  6. Wow, this was so encouraging. God’s given you an amazing way with words. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Angie, you had me with you immediately, right from the start, as I LOVE Psalm 8:3-5 for many reasons. Then the message was fabulous. Thank you 🙂

    WOW! WOW! WOW! 3 wows cos: 1. WOW that you actually got to go on the trip with your family! 2. WOW that you got to go to both of the places you really wanted to visit with your family. 3. WOW that God gave you this very special message while you were there. I’m guessing that the message was greater & clearer due to your own dark times. Praise God that He uses the negative, tough & dark times in our lives for us to shine like bright stars for others to see. Thanks for this message that had me smiling during a tough time. God bless.

    • Kerryn, it was a HUGE miracle that i was even able to travel. A God ordained time. I’m so happy that it made you smile! Lots of love to you too <3

  8. Hi Angie.

    Like, Kerryn, I say “Wow!” What a privilege to go to those two places, especially given your health issues.

    I’ve never been even close to Arizona. I’ve stayed pretty close to my beloved Canada. However, I have had some experiences that your star gazing reminds me of. Truly awesome ones. Like seeing the Northern Lights while paddling with friends across a calm lake at night. And one night, while visiting a family who lived “in the sticks” viewing the sky when the stars seemed so close I felt I could touch them.

    Our great Creator and tiny me together observing some of his handiwork. It’s hard to find the words to describe how I felt. So I identify with your words.

    Your prayer is also much what I’ve been praying lately. Let’s worship and adore him. He’ll do the rest.

    Gentle hugs,
    Beth

    • Hi Beth, it was definitely a WOW moment that I was able to travel. I’m glad we have pictures or I wouldn’t believe that I was really there. I cannot imagine seeing the Northern Lights. How blessed you are to have witnessed that!

      God’s abundant blessings and hugs to you!
