1.24.2020 – He likes to keep me on my toes…

Lately I’m noticing these patterns in my life…. It’s like the Lord has been teaching me how to recognize when He is leading me into the “next thing” –the next thing He wants me to learn, or to break through, or to step into.

12.21.19 – Pen, Paper, and Hearts

This morning I realized I’m on my last page of my current journal. It always feels like God does something a little different in my life, with each new journal. I’ve come to expect a new “page” turned or perhaps even a new “chapter” as I start each brand new journal. I was thinking about… Read More 12.21.19 – Pen, Paper, and Hearts

10.24.19 – God’s Storyline

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking, and marveling over the fact that God has written a book about my life.

10.17.19 – Facing (or running from) Nerves

Have you ever really felt “nervousness” in the pit of your stomach, in the shaking and sweating of your hands, in the pounding of your heart? The concerns and “what ifs” and worries in your mind?

10.15.19 – Morningtime Adventures with the Lord

This morning has felt like a treasure hunt, or maybe you could say it has been somewhat of an adventure with the Lord. I’ll be honest and real this morning and admit when I first woke up, my mind immediately wanted to obsess and dwell over some frustrations about my weight.

Someone said something that rang so true to me… that for my whole life, the enemy has been trying to steal my voice. That is true, he has.

5.29.19 – “Don’t Give Up”

I love this series that Lana Vawser does called, “Coffee With Jesus“. These videos are always so relevant and timely. Sometimes I’ll look to the Lord and just laugh because it’s just. so. relevant. He has this way of doing that, doesn’t He? The Lord often speaks to me so personally through these. Felt I… Read More 5.29.19 – “Don’t Give Up”
