Beloved

Beloved

by Lisa M. Prysock

When I really think of all that the Lord does for us and has done for us, I stand amazed!   In sending His Son, we have forgiveness and salvation through the work of the cross… but He doesn’t stop there.  He loves us and desires to have fellowship with us on a daily basis.  The idea that He wants to talk to me and show me many things, and to have a very real and personal relationship with me, with you, with each and every one of us is yet another wonderful blessing of knowing God.  He never turns us away when we want to spend time with Him, even though sometimes we get busy and don’t take the time to be faithful in this.  He is faithful, even when we are not.

Then there is His provision for us, both in the natural and supernatural realm.  Not only has He given us this beautiful earth with bountiful and ample supplies of fresh air, water, food, and beauty all around us, but He also provides a way for us to have homes, gardens, clothing and other material possessions, jobs and careers, families, friends, churches, schools, communities, neighbors, and purpose… especially purpose in serving Him and loving others.

On top of this, He gives us the freedom to study, create, choose our courses of action throughout each day, and pursue His plans for us… and even a variety of things that are not necessarily the best of what He wants for us.  He gives us great mobility and freedom of choice.

When I think of all of the beauty alone in the earth that He has placed here for us to enjoy, my heart is overwhelmed.  From mountains and meadows, to oceans and rivers, to butterflies, birds and animals, to trees and flowers… the earth is full of His handiwork, all placed here for us to enjoy.  What a mighty and gracious God we serve!

As a writer, I am truly appreciative of the fact He also allows us to enjoy the artistic achievements of our fellow man.  From bridges and skyscrapers, to music, movies, books, art, and talents of many kinds… it is mind boggling!  There are so many unique things in the world that reveal the heart of God to us and His love toward us.

My friend, we are loved, in fact, we are truly beloved!

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us; there is none to compare with You. If I would declare and speak of them, they would be too numerous to count.  Psalm 40:5

Author Biography:  

Lisa M. PrysockLisa M. Prysock lives in the countryside of beautiful, rolling Kentucky just outside of the greater Louisville area near horse farms and four board fences with her husband of 19 years.  She homeschools the two youngest of their five children (three grown).  She and her husband live in an average, two story, Colonial style home they are continually updating– with a funny looking Heinz 57 dog; an adorably dainty lady cat; two teenagers; a vegetable garden; numerous flower beds; and a tree house undergoing a remodel.  When not in teaching or writing mode, she is teaching herself to play the piano and violin.  In regards to that, she laughs:  “It’s a pretty painful process, but I’m truly enjoying it!”

Lisa loves all things old-fashioned and has adopted a slogan of “The Old-Fashioned Everything Girl.”  A few of her interests and passions include doll houses, long dresses and hats, gardening, reading the Classics, butterflies, swimming, walking, working out, cooking, sewing, crochet, cross stitching, arts and crafts, scrapbooking, decorating, and drawing.  Recently, her husband remodeled a room in their home with a picture window overlooking a valley which contains a creek and wooded area, transforming the space into a serene and sublime writing office/sewing room.  “It’s a great source of peace and inspiration for me… and pure joy not to be writing from the busy kitchen amidst the household chaos on a laptop.  Growing teenagers eating every five minutes makes for a constant stream of happenings!”

Lisa is an Amazon bestselling author of To Find a Duchess, an Inspirational Regency Romance; a Victorian Christian Romance Series which includes Hannah’s Garden:  a Turn of the Century Love Story and Abigail’s Melody; and ‘The Lydia Collection,’ which includes The Redemption of Lady Georgiana (a Ruth love story of modern day Regency proportions), Protecting Miss Jenna (an Antebellum Era Christian Romance Adventure), and Persecution & Providence (a ‘Jane Austen-ish’ mail order bride story from the Pioneer Era).  She is also the author of a devotional/Bible Study, Arise Princess Warrior and recently released The Shoemaker, an Old-Fashioned Regency Christmas Romance.  Lisa writes clean and wholesome literature that shares her faith in Jesus Christ.  She is a member of ACFW and Louisville Christian Writers.  You can find out more about Lisa at:   www.LisaPrysock.com
